It is a bit crazy, but I just used fabrics that I already had and went with the craziness.
This is another Halloween craft I made the other day. I love the colors, though I'm afraid my photos are a bit lacking!
This is my first attempt at making a table runner and I have to say that it was a lot of fun! Do you think that this will keep us from piling things onto this table everyday?
I have a "sick" child at home. He was stuffy on Sunday and feverish last night, but now he seems fine. What do you call this? Is it Worry-the-parents-for-no-reason-Flu? I was seriously tempted to send him to school this morning because he seems fine and I was hoping for a perfect attendance star (do they still do that?), but there are a million other illnesses floating around his school right now and I don't want a weakened immune system to invite any of those things home.
We've been doing "Home Kindergarten." Apparently I am no where near as cool as his real teacher. He's mad at me right now because I'm doing "Writer's Workshop" wrong.
Grumpy child + A long day at home = Crazy Mama!
Before I get back to teaching, I have to share one more thing (from The Scenic Route by Binnie Kirshenbaum). It so fits me today:
"For me, cooking falls apart in the planning stage. I'll go to the store to buy food for dinner and come back with fresh pasta, and Idaho potato, and a jar of orange marmalade."I did almost the same thing yesterday, except I bought yogurt instead of marmalade. I have spent the day trying to come up with a meal that will satisfy a slightly picky six-year-old, a super-picky husband, and me--a woman who enjoys food that has "taste." Why is this such a chore every single day??? I have decided on spaghetti and meat sauce. One third of the people in my house will enjoy this. Can you guess which third?
