It’s still Thursday, right? :) So much to be Thankful for this week!! Just got home from teaching at Ink About It in Westford… My core group of ladies in class tonight, a quick project, but they seemed to like it!! And, had plans to make more like it!! Yeah!! Plus, we picked the papers for the next book (Echo Park!! Can’t wait to get started on that one!!). Linda is so sweet, and lets me make whatever I want!! I’m excited to work with some really fun bright papers for this next book! They are so professional there, and I always have everything I need for class! Plus, they have a TON of new stuff in, I got some fun new things and lots of ideas of things I want to make… If only there were more hours for crafting!
This past weekend was Mother’s Day, and man, my hubby and kiddos really out-did themselves!! Mike took the kids out (I had crop on Saturday, that must be when he did it)… He had them each make me a Mother’s Day Mug, they are so cute!! And hand colored by the kids… and each also got me a gift card (in the mugs) one for Michaels and one for ITunes… And, the kids made me a card too… So, when I got up Sunday morning, they gave me the beautiful mugs… then we went to Charlie’s Diner (in Lawrence) for breakfast (yummy)… Headed to Hampton State Park for the kids to fly their new kites (actually saw the “kite guy” that we bought the kites from at the beach flying kites!! Pretty funny!!)… Drove up through Hampton and on to Portsmouth where we walked around all the little shops and then had lunch at the Brewery… Headed north to Kittery to go to Yummies Candy Store… THEN drove down through Kittery Point and along the water with a stop at Fort Mc-Something (I have to look and update, I can’t remember the name)… UPDATE: Fort McClary That’s where we stopped on the way home :)
By the time we got home it was pretty late, but we had a WONDERFUL relaxing family day… We haven’t had time for a wandering day like that in a long time, there’s always something that we need to go to, or be at, or get from… So, it was a really great day of just meandering!! Best Mother’s Day Ever :) The only down-side was that we didn’t plan ahead and got home late, so we didn’t see either of our own Mothers on Mother’s Day, but I have a little something that I made for each of them… Just can’t post pictures of what I made ’til I get it to them :)
Oh, and a little Kathryn story for this week… Keep in mind, this was a CRAZY busy week… Card Club Tuesday night, Cub Scout Banquet Wednesday night, my Zutter class tonight… Something almost every night… In between, we still managed to go to the grocery store… Here’s how the conversation went on the way home from the grocery store beginning of the week…
Kathryn: “Mom, when I grow up, I’m going to live in New York and work at Happy Burger. But, I hate that place, I’m going to pack my lunch.”
(a little back story… 2 Christmas vacations ago, we went to NYC for a mini-vacation… and one evening, walked a couple of blocks to eat dinner at “Good Burger”… Apparently, she hates that place :) And, I didn’t have the heart to tell her, if she works at “Happy Burger” she won’t be able to afford to live in the city :) She’ll figure that one out on her own :)
Have a wonderful week!!!
