Mark this week down in history: the monsters are going to be gone this week. They’ve spent a night or two away before, but never all three gone at the same time for this long.
Princess is going to church camp Tuesday – Friday with her older cousin, over on Lake of the Ozarks by Grandma & Grandpa. It’s close enough that Grandma plans to go see them at least once. When she heard that Princess was going, she invited the other two monsters to come spent time with them at the lake too.
So we dropped Littlest and Middle off today. Princess leaves Tuesday afternoon. Then we’ll be childless through Friday afternoon when she comes home. Grandma & Grandpa will bring the two youngest home on Sat. when they drive over for Father’s Day.
That Man and I are celebrating………by working. *rolls eyes* Actually, I’m taking Wednesday off so I can dedicate most of the day to writing and Writer Wednesday.
I’ve promised some craft pictures since all our fun classes this summer. The monsters aren’t here to model their finger-weaving scarves, but I have completed several kitchen scrubbies, crocheted from nylon netting:
Supplies from the class: strips of nylon netting and size J crochet hook. One yard is supposed to make about 3 scrubbies.
Two completed scrubbies made with one strip each of blue, red, and white (the class had an Independence Day theme). They’re supposed to be great for cleaning glass stove tops without scratching — which I severely need.
Immediately after the class, Princess and I stopped at Wal-Mart and bought some more netting in various colors.
Want one? Comment here and I’ll draw a name.
