Today was Zoe's first day of first grade, and she tells me that it was the most awesome day of her life ! Not bad .
T.J. went to his first ever ANYTHING except for Church , entering pre-kindergarten classes, where he only has to stay for around 3 hours or so. He liked it too, but his new friend wasn't there and he says that he missed him. Still good.
Mommy on the other hand, called me immediately after dropping the two of them off at school, to wail that HER BABIES were in school ! She was on the way to the sitter with one-year-old, Seth, almost late for work herself.
I added new photos of the older two to my sidebar over there, but I just love this one........after several shots posed sweetly together, T.J. had had enough !.
|Do I look just a little bit like the cat that swallowed the canary?|
I washed the quilt today...........it smelled,..........after 22 years, ya think? Yes, it smelled like someone's old linen closet.........and it had stains.......spit-washed blood, pencil markings, blue chalk !
Most of the stains came out pretty well, or enough so that I can live with it, but I wouldn't advise anyone to leave a quilt in progress for this long !
The blue markings are the worst problem; they were made with a blue chalk in a wheeled-dispensor. The ones on which I actually used an old toothbrush and Dawn dishwashing detergent are really pale, but not gone. I need to wash the quilt once more, and make sure I hit every blue mark......yes EVERY blue mark. Then, if something still shows, it's earned it's permanent home in my quilt history books. That''s okay by me. "
