Okay, I came back to reality and maybe ten loads of laundry. So, what have I been up to, besides my elbows in laundry?
Last Tuesday, I had just arrived for Bible Study when I got a call from my son. He was called in to work a full day and I needed to drive him there. (He does not drive because of visual problems related to his CP). Okay, so now what? Too late to get back to Bible Study class, but a good day for thrifting! I found a lint roller at the first store, an expandable grabber a t the second store, and two Hawaiian shirts and a little basket at the third store. Everyone needs a lint roller, the grabber is just what I need to get things off the top shelf, and the shirts are for an upcoming Hawaii theme night for Red Hats. I am not sure what or where I am putting the basket, but after reading about how one of the bloggers loves to put things in trays, I thought I'd give it a try.
The little basket has partitions, great for all those little bottles of stuff! (I moved some of the other things.)
My sister-in-law called and told me she was done with our son's memory quilt. I had saved t-shirts since he was about 4 years old. I had intentions of making it for his high school graduation, then his college graduation, but my intentions stopped there. This summer he will be 30, so I approached my sister-in-law who is an excellent quilter. She only charged me for the backing! Not only did she make the quilt, but two large pillows!
(Hard to believe that guy on the left is almost 30!) Not all the t-shirts could be used, but Dan was quite pleased with it. It includes everything from Nickelodeon Studios, middle school, boy scout camp, and Metallica!
My favorite great niece (my only great niece) doesn't belong to Sunday School, so I thought if she doesn't already know, she should know the true meaning of Easter. She was quite pleased with the book she got in the mail!
My sister called me to tell me that her great grandson, Tommy, was coming over, but it was evening and I was too tired to visit. She always sends me pictures though.
He is such a good natured little boy, and such a cutie with those big blue eyes!
This week is back to normal! I went to church, Bible Study, and last night was invited by a church friend to go to a "Woman's Night Out" where we had the chance to win a door prize, sample and buy products, and find out more about the vendors. It was a pleasant evening, and I restrained myself from buying or signing up for anything! We then went out for a sandwich and got to know one another more. Pleasant evening!
