DD Chris and her husband devoted the month of June to cleaning out their garage. I was absolutely impressed because they tackled it anew every weekend until it was completely under control. She posted on Facebook that she had found a glass head, couldn't remember acquiring it and wondered why anyone would want a glass head. Me me - I want a glass head. She has over 600 FB friends, partly because of the belly dancing classes she teaches, so in the silly responses, I kept saying, me me - I want a glass head. About comment 18 I finally said, so do I get the glass head, she said, Yes Mother, you can have the glass head. What on earth are you going to do with a glass head???
This is the first thing I did with the glass head. This is from scraps. I'm not sure it's successful, but in looking over my inventory list from the Brewery, I see that hats that sell are hats of color. This is a hat of color - weird color.
This is the second thing I did. So now I have two hats finished of not so specta-
cular color. I'm working on getting my color mojo working. I am attracted to squadgey swamp colors, but I want to get colors that sell going soon. Ian has bought tickets to NYC in October. He's selling stuff (stamps) and I'm selling stuff and we hope to avoid residual trip payments. Silly, but I'm looking foward to visiting the Fairway Market on Broadway and Ian wants to go back to the Gray Papaya. I just watch - I don't do those hotdogs, no matter how big a NYC insitution they are.
Our kids celebrated SIL's birthday and promotion last night so we got to babysit. We watched the last Harry Potter, until the babies clearly needed to go to bed. They fell asleep after I read one book. The move is on Tivo so we'll watch the rest later. Ian caught this shop of Lexie in front of the old-and-in-the-way pot. She's finally taller than the pot.
And they were happy to pose for a fruit bar salute. However did they get so big?
Speaking of big grandkids - in my earlier posts I talked about my oldest grandson being adopted and about our reconnecting. So he's flying out in September for our family Gathering and with his parents. We're kinda on a major high at this point. Sorry - I try to stick to one theme per post, but I realize I went past three~
In Praise of Grilled Cheese and Wool Socks!
