I’m sure y’all remember the Summer Reading Program at your public library? Kids compete to see who can read the most books during the month of June. It can get pretty heated. Ellie set herself a goal of 100 books and completed it in a week and a half. So we did some math, factored […]
Last week was an out of town week. Ellie and I visited my parents and sister in Peachtree City. I made a Hippo. Then we came home, I washed a bunch of clothes, re-packed, and we went to spend the night at Mary Esther. I finished that Elephant. And knit a longer tail for the […]
This year’s mug was created by Susan Altenau Pottery. Michael says that the lip is especially nice. Ellie likes the cat. I just noticed that she has a listing for a Cat Portrait Mug!
He’s done. I can hardly believe it. I’ve been working on this guy since May sometime. There were so many interruptions (and chenille is sooooo sloooooow AND I kept running out of yarn) that I really started to think I would never be done. Now that he’s all finished, I’m sad to see him go. […]
The main difference between chenille and a beautiful wool handspun (if anyone should ask) is that chenille drags its feet and wool is in a hurry to get where it’s going. I still love this yarn.
I’m making a few changes to the format over here. Cause sometimes you need a little color. It’s not done yet so y’all please hang in there while I break stuff. It’ll get fixed. Probably.
Ellie is off at Girl Scout Camp this week with her BFF. Just for the days – neither one of us is ready for overnight camp. It’s good to have something to look forward to anyway. On the front porch … Continue reading ?
The sheep I’ve been working on since around book fair time is close to finished. He’s only missing a head and ears. Oh, and a tail. Disassembled toys can be confusing to look at. Or maybe just disturbing. I used … Continue reading ?
Just a quick school update. Because I know you’re all on the edge of your seats. Special board meeting tonight where the Board President resigned (everyone is acting like this is a surprise). Also at the board meeting it was … Continue reading ?
Look what we did while we were cut off from civilization! We’ve got these things here called “thunderstorms.” Maybe you’ve heard of them? On Tuesday morning, lightening came in through the phone line and took out the internet (and the … Continue reading ?
Half day of school on Friday! I’ve really gotten my $$ worth for this chalkboard. Ellie had a some friends over to celebrate with make-your-own ice cream sundaes and water squirt things. Squirters because I thought the kids would get … Continue reading ?
Last Thursday was another Board of Education meeting with the “work session” scheduled to happen immediately before the voting session (it’s usually the week before). Hang on, let me back up a second. About a week before that meeting, the … Continue reading ?
Today is Field Trip Day. I brought the camp chairs. It’s nice in the shade. Three more days to go, y’all.
Field Day was moved from last Friday to yesterday (the weather was supposed to be bad). So that’s done at last. I’ve got no photographic evidence since I sold snacks the entire time. Today is Ellie’s class’s End of the … Continue reading ?
It was Teacher Appreciation Week at school and there was a lot of cuteness. Cute stuff every day. Ramping up to personalized drink cozies. Today we finished the week with a Coffee Shop (us with a bunch of Krups machines) … Continue reading ?
Long time Pine Haven resident, Mama Armadillo, was seen in the pre-dawn hours yesterday morning leading this year’s four babies in a parade across the front porch. This afternoon the babies were spotted near the drive way snuffling and rustling … Continue reading ?
She (torties are girls) wouldn’t get in the teensy trap we found at Lowe’s this afternoon, but she did manage to make it into the garage. We’ve been leaving the garage door cracked for Tyler, resident mostly-feral, but right now … Continue reading ?
Like my new doormats? It was time for a change. It’s impossible not to smile out the way out the door! Washington (I’m sure he’ll get a new name) is over at a good friend’s house auditioning for the role … Continue reading ?
It was Book Fair Week at school. I’m worn out. But it does mean that the end of the school year is near – just two more events and then summer! I’m ashamed to tell you how many books we … Continue reading ?
Ellie is out in the office visiting Washington with her mini. She keeps texting me videos. Washington was up in a tree by the mailbox Saturday before last. I talked him into coming down but he ran away before I … Continue reading ?
