Yikes, things have been busy here, leaving little time for blogging. My previous post shows just some of what we were up to on the weekend - besides hiking, I did yard work, laundry, cooking, learned how to use a drill, built a frame covered in netting to protect my strawberry patch from the birds, baked a strawberry/rhubarb pie, went to see The Avengers with the boys and the list goes on. The weekend was packed with fun - when Tuesday morning arrived, I decided I wanted to go on vacation, lol!
Oh well, I'm back today with a card for the current JUGS challenge. It's a colour challenge - blue, white and yellow. I LOVE these colours together! I don't tend to use a great deal of yellow, but this was a good reason to play.
A quick story...Chester was not feeling well and stayed home from school on Tuesday. It was a damp and rainy day. When we left the house to pick his brother up from daycare, I put on my red polkadot rubber boots (see exhibit "A" on left) along with the inner liner of my ski jacket which is a rather flashy pattern with purple, bright yellow and black and struck a "pose" before heading out the door. ( I was quite the sight - even I was considering whether I might embarrass myself...)
Although Chester has not really expressed thus far that he is totally embarrassed by his parents (I'm sure it will happen soon enough) - this is what he said to me: "Mom, aren't those the kind of boots you fill with dirt and plant flowers in???" Hmm, am I just in denial - is he embarrassed by me but too nice to say it?!?!? We had quite the giggle!!!
p.s. Sorry Fluffy, I keep talking about pie don't I? Just remember that reading about it doesn't cost you any calories. If I keep this up, I am going to have to do a LOT more hiking!!! That was A LOT of pie in one weekend - good thing I had people to help me eat it!
