We went to first service yesterday
which gave us spare time to wander the Arts festival.
I must say it was heavenly.
(wouldve been even better without the crowds)
Husband entertained little one as we wandered up and down the streets and aisles.
I saw these handmade journals.
I dont even want one,
I know if I had one I wouldnt be able to bring myself to paint in it.
Really..... Im serious.
I know the reason Im enjoying my journal is
I know its made from an old book,
if I mess up I can just put a layer of gesso over it.
I found some handpainted yarn and already have a knitting project on my list to knit it up.
I could barely sleep last night
because the yarn was screaming to be knit so loudly.
You think Im joking?
I dont joke about things like that.
I have to knit this baby sweater first.
Plus I was trying to get my other no purl monkey sock knit to mail by the 12th-
the last day to mail military packages for Christmas.
Which is highly unlikely anyhow.
I keep telling the yarn to be quiet and that it will have to wait its turn.
I loaded up in the car with Lil G
had brother drop us off on his way to school
so we could play at the park.
just to get out of the house-
and away from the yarn.
We had a great time
There happened to be a family that spoke Spanish at the park
I could tell Lil G was intrigued.
She actually tried to hug on the grandmother
who was a willing recipient.
I hurried to explain in my Spanglish that we were trying to discourage her from showing affection to strangers,
Felt like a heel.
Then while playing on the slide she hugged a little girl-
I apologized profusely -
she didnt even see it coming.
The look on her face was priceless.
I can laugh about it now!!!
Lil G enjoyed Climbing the rope ladder, the stairs, the swings,
the slide...... and the open space to RUN!
(didnt bring the camera- oops!)
Have to share a funny.
I was in the laundry room and lil G brought me a dishcloth,
Then she had something very serious to tell me.
I walk into the kitchen and see this in the sink. Huh?
Walk back to her room to see this..........
It was an "AHAAAA!" Moment .
I wonder if that smeared spot is where she tried to clean it on her own?
I didnt notice that until writing this post.
Thankfully I have the industrial size.
Needless to say, She did have something important to tell me.
"Here mom, I think you are going to need this."
its all grace isnt it?!
off to go knit that baby sweater.... I promise!
Under His wings,
