1. Rocky got a new bed. He loves to be snuggled. There was a quilt laying on the floor that he claimed. The quilt was in transition from a stack in the bedroom to a stack in the closet and while it was on the floor ... he claimed it. Now he has a proper bed and he loves it.
2. Our sad little lemon tree has a lemon! Honestly, we were going to pitch it, it looked pathetic last summer.
AND ... it even has some little babies.
3. I'm reacquainting with my spinning wheel. After a couple of years of sitting dormant, I decided to get back to it.
2nd grade played a big part in the decision. This week's language arts story is "The Goat and the Rug". I haven't actually read the story but Kid#2 excitedly invited me to come to school and SPIN and show the kids and talk about roving into yarn.
AND ... the other 2 2nd grade teachers want me to visit their classrooms too.
AND ... oh yeah, by the way, She just called me (literally, just called ... I was in the middle of this post) ... she doesn't want me to bring the spinning wheel, the lady in the story uses a drop spindle. "hey, Mom, can you bring a drop spindle and show that?"
Now I have to go practice my drop spindle. I gave up on it for the spinning wheel which is much easier. The things a mom will do for her kid ... it never ends.
