Nana Day & an Almond Tin

Yesterday P and M were dropped off around 2:30 and then P's friend was dropped. I took all three girls to the library where P and M read to each other and worked a floor puzzle, and M colored, carried all the stuffed animals around and rearranged the little kid furniture. It was a fun time. We then stopped at a party store to get ice cream and root beer for floats and came back home just in time for Poppa to grill some hot dogs and make floats before he left to play tennis. After dinner P and I took her friend back home while my son stayed with his daughter, K, and the baby.

We had all three grandgirls overnight and it turned out so fine. They all slept all night in their respective beds, even the baby in a "big girl" bed. I got up around 7:30 and made coffee and the baby got up around 7:45. She had breakfast and then K got up for breakfast. They played together very well until P got up. Then I spent time with the baby while the big girls played together.

Their mother (DD) came out and had coffee with me and then took all three to her house. So I have some free time to do some art and have a bite before going in to town to meet my Algebra tutee.

I wanted to show you the cute little tin I purchased from the California Almonds people. I love tins - actually I love containers - and this one is so cute, but I thought it would be about the size of an Altoids container. It is quite small and holds 22 almonds which is how many you are supposed to eat at one time for a snack. I took a picture of it next to an ATC so that you could better judge the size. I don't remember exactly what I paid for it, but if I had known how cute and how little they were going to be I would have ordered a bunch to give away to friends.

Isn't it so cute?

Well, I'd better get on with my day. I hope to get some time after the Algebra session to work on more dominoes. I am planning to do more hand drawing on these ones, not just stamped and colored.
