As is often the case, my Monday didn’t quite go the way I had planned, but it’s ok … no, it’s more than ok. Because my Monday turned out to include two of my favorite people, T#2 and T#4. Believe me, skipping small group to be able to spend the day with a couple of my Ts was no sacrifice!
T#2 asked if we could do some sewing … she wanted to make a “blankie”. About 7 years ago, DD’s family took a road trip to visit DSIL’s sister in Chattanooga … I bought 2 yards of a couple of flannel prints featuring their favorite characters, sewed the edges under and created what they call a “blankie”. Since then, I’ve made several more … and they all still like sleeping with their blankies. We grabbed her sewing machine and stopped at Wal-Mart so she could pick out fabric for her blankie … she chose a tie-dyed fleece. And of course, no trip to Wal-Mart with the grands would be complete without a stop in the toy department, where they each selected a package of Squinkies. T#2 still has trouble sewing a straight line, but she’s 7 and this was only her second time using a sewing machine, so she’s still learning. And she’s pleased with her end results … and that’s what really counts. I helped a little bit, but really for the most part, she did it herself.
After dinner, T#2, T#4 and I went for a walk around our subdivision … T#4 enjoyed getting out and seeing the flowers (even if some were weeds in bloom in the vacant lot), T#2 not so much.
It was a wonderful day. Today is another day with nothing much on the agenda … wonder if it’s going to stay that way?
