Niece's very cute puppet theater!
Mr. Husband's idea to save cardboard for
this and she has been working on a script :)
Also playing with k'nex. :)
Books I gave the Mother to be at the baby shower.
I am going to be selling them at our church bookstore
and have been reading them here and there for that;
they are great!
And no, I am not expecting for those don't
know me in person but were wondering.
The craft re-shipment finally came today.
They left out one nightlight though,
so I have to call them again....
Part of my secret knitting project.
Another Elizabeth-original simple style. :)
This is my Mexican blanket that I got in
Mexico when I was 17, so 20 years ago.
It will be a month tomorrow that we moved in.
My brother-in-law did not realize it was so recent
and said that it looked like we'd lived here 6 months already!
I was I admit gratified to hear this,
as I had been working so hard to get the place
ready for him and his lovely daughter to visit!
So the Mexican blanket is my picnic blanket.
I used to bring it to cemetery day in Ottawa
and have been using it to sit on our front stoop
with L. our 7 year old niece.
We've had snacks, Popsicles and such things there.
She's a happy kid, very smart of course, and sings
songs about things she loves, like I did when I was a kid.
My Mother called my singing 'chanting' and I did it often
when I was a kid...
The song today was about our local corner store
which are called bodegas here.
Our Bodega has bubble gum in the machine,
freezie pops in the freezer,
and things like paper bags for puppets,
packing tape for theater construction and ketchup :)
Our days have gone like this:
Out of bed and breakfast about 8 AM.
Outdoor time (kiddie pool today!)
lunch prep and lunch
rest time for 1 hour (my survival hour for things like
a nap (whew kids have a lot of energy!), computer time,
Afternoon activities or cleaning up things
and then activity or reading
snack on stoop
outside for scooter time
wash up, prepare bed, read
Bible stories from this Children's Bible
prayers, talking about theological questions
such as the mystery of the Holy Trinity and finally
We've used our bar stools a lot already
and we've been having a great time!
Please pray for me as we have our next
wonderful munchkin visiting as of
this Sunday-Thursday and I want his
visit to also be a wonderful time for him!
