The Mister has been home this week and it has been so nice.
He had some time off during the holidays, and that was good too. But this time, when there aren't a thousand and one activities, or things that have to be done, its better.
Not that he's been idle.
Cuz, I sort of capitalized on his being here,and had an eensy-weensy, little, project for him.
He's building these for my office.
He has spent the last two days working in the garage while I taught school.
Let me tell you what I love about him being home.... I love moments like the one that happened at 3:30 yesterday afternoon-- I made a pot of coffee and heated up two leftover banana chocolate chip scones, and invited him to come in for awhile.
He happily obliged.
Of all the people I enjoy sipping coffee with, he's my favorite.
Back to those shelves he's building...
The unfortunate part of getting new shelves is that I need to clean and organize my craft room, which has been a perpetual state of chaos since Thanksgiving.
You see the problem is that I have this big basket of wool yarn that I bought and in my attempt to ignore winter I have become a chronic flower maker, in hopes of making spring come early.
I tried my hand at a headband and it turned out all right.
The Girl considered using it as a neck warmer, but it seems that wool is a bit scratchy.
In my knitting craze, I decided to try to felt some knit wool and make flowers out it.
This is when I realized I might be allergic to wool.
But I'm having fun, so what's a few hives?
Hmmm.....what else can I tell you?
This morning i'm feeling a little queasy because last night I got 4 tweets/emails/texts, from four different moms (in four different states!) asking for prayer because the stomach virus had viciously hit their homes.
This makes me scared. I despise stomach bugs. Maybe its because for some odd reason, every emotion I feel is connected to my stomach. I get queasy if I'm nervous, sad, angry, excited, bitter, happy or any emotion in between...but nothing makes me more nervous than a stomach bug.
Let's change the subject....
Today we are taking a break from (written) school work and will go on a field trip. We aren't exactly sure where we are going, but we know that getting out of the house would be good today, while the weather is supposed to warm up a few degrees (before it plummets again!).
