Kellen left for 5 days of camp today with the 5th and 6th graders at church. Amber has moved back to school so it is just Jerry, Tyler, Ethan, and I this week, quite a different dynamic.
I did get the second block for the PS 12 Days SAL done. I’m on a good pace to keep up with the due dates at this point.
As you can see I was carried away by the beaded fob addiction. I ended up making 16. I will be drawing 2 names (see previous post) and I will tell you the one with the snail is one of the fobs I’ll be giving away since it seems like a favorite. The other one will be a surprise. I’ve also decided to sell some of these (so I can buy more beads). There is a link at the top of my blog called Fobs 4 Sale.
I also put new screen material in our window screen frames this weekend. Little boys have a way of poking holes in screens and I’ve needed to do this for a while now. This is one of the small screens. I ended up having to make new frames for 2 large and one small window. My arms are aching tonight from the hacksaw and the little rolling tool that you use to get that cord in the groove – I know it has a name but it escapes me at the moment. Poor Jerry had to make several trips to Home Depot today. While I was having fun with the screens he was reparing a leaking pipe in the basement that we discovered at about 1am last night. All is well now.
I have officially waited to the bitter end to get my paper written (what I should be doing this very moment). I’ve decided to switch to a Wordsworth Poem “The world is too much with us” which I think will make the paper go much quicker than my original choice. Better get to it!
Tomorrow is my official last day of classes!!!
