Last week two of our grandchildren stayed with s for a few days.
They found my old typewriter that I used in college. It wasn’t new when I bought it and I don’t have the manual for it anymore (if ever) so I’ve forgotten what some of the keys did or how to set the tabs. But our grandson loved plinking around on it.
Our granddaughter typed a short story on it but was interested in making some shrink art. We printed out some b/w pictures from the internet and she used colored pencils to liven them up. I forgot to take pictures of the finished product.
We also made homemade ice cream, grilled pizza (their favorite), and watched a great movie that was “before their time”: Secondhand Lion.
Mr. Aitch and I were worn out when they went home.
My daughter sent these photos of the Christmas Wishes packets hanging on her tree…before December 1st. Oops! I’m just getting around to showing them.
Are you (US residents) ready for the big turkey day feast tomorrow? Our daughter and family were here for the weekend so we had our big meal this past Sunday.
I recruited two helpers to slather butter between the skin and breast of the turkey. Smaller hands worked great.
Plus there was the “ew, this is so gross” factor!
Once the grossness was out of the way, they did a wonderful job of smearing butter all over the bird.
Best turkey ever!
I washed the three 1898 hats to try to soften the acrylic yarn and it worked. Sort of.
They are somewhat softer and are good enough.
The green hat stitches evened out so the mess basically disappeared.
Ready to gift.
