Busy, busy, busy!
Boy it seems like I have been so busy this week. This one might be short and quick.
Ashley took the pictures above. That's me with my little bow and arrow, And those are my arrows in the target!!!! Not bad, huh?
For the past two weeks "my kids" and I have been working on mobiles, using Shrinky dinks! Remember those? I didn't even know they still existed. If you don't know, they are sheets of plastic that you can trace or draw pictures and color them in, then cut out. You put them in the oven just for about a min. and they curl up and shrink. the kids thought this was Way Cool! Then we hung them from sticks to make mobiles.
Ashley came home for the weekend, when she saw the mobiles, she said "these are cool, I want to make one!" So Ashley made a mobile too!
The kids noticed I had a lot of candles. They asked why I had so many candles. I said, "...because I like to light them." So they asked if we could light a candle - and now we eat breakfast by "candle light" every morning. They take turns choosing which flavor.
Someone asked me on a comment (don't know who it was) why I did not want to go to India. It is just a country I am not interested in. It is very over crowded, poor, and not kept up (in most places) now I am not prejudiced or stupid, I do know that parts of India must be very pretty and interesting. I am just not interested in finding out. I also do not want to go to England, Spain, Mexico, Germany, Russia or France. I am not saying any of these countries are "Bad" I am just not as interested in them.
Some countries I am interested in are Brazil, Chili, Actually all of South America! Iceland, Greenland, Switzerland, Antarctica, Australia, Papua New Guinea, Islands, any of them, I love Islands! Parts of Africa, New Zealand, just to name a few!
There are probably just as many countries I do not want to go to as those I do.
