Quick few lines and then I've got to get around. Lilly's mom is coming down this morning to "take away my kitchen island" - - - yes, I just couldn't get past the lingering smell, and her idea is to "Fabreeze the h*ll out of it" - which I explained to her is as full of chemicals as the present smell. However, she is ecstatic at the prospect of getting it, so she and her husband are adult enough to make their own decisions in that area, I guess. I'm sad to see it go, I really do love it, but have been hesitant to put my faux crystal trays in there or my cookie carriers, so it's just a "pretty thing to look at." When I mentioned that I was going to call CTS to see if I could still return it, her reaction was to jump up and down, "I'll buy it Nana, I'll buy it." Now the hunt begins again - this time for something old - something I can see (and smell) is wood.
Winter, I don't getr this need the school has for making costumes. Surely there are loads of parents who don't sew, and what with the tuition and other donations that are expected, buying a costume for one wearing may be a hardship. I can see getting the kids into the feel of the period, but I know for me, this would have definitely been difficult. So glad your son got to delve a little bit more into his own family ancestry, in this case. Makes the project all the more interesting.
Wondering if I have time to run to the store. GD let me know she and husband were bringing a friend, probably using his truck, and would come 10-11. I'll be hunting my recipes for a milkless (wowie cupcakes?) something to offer them, if I don't get out. No scones with out buttermilk.
Got to get showered and dressed at the very least and then decide what direction I'm headed in. Check in later.
