Yesterday I got Little Miss 3 around noon and then her sister got off the bus here around 4. Just before Miss 8's bus arrived, my son came over to bring the new baby and Little Miss 7 to stay for a few hours. I
I have a couple of finds to show you and would like to ask you for some ideas. Firstly, the last time Nancy and I went to Ann Arbor, we stopped at a smoke shop (no we weren't smoking or buying smokes) and the proprietor gave me a lovely cigar box. I didn't look inside until I got home and then I immediately thought it would be a great pencil case, but the pencils are much too long, so what would you use it for? I need some ideas. The dividers in the case are 6 inches long and 7/8 inch wide. Isn't this a beauty?
I also went second hand shopping in Charlotte earlier in the month when I took my sister out to lunch for her birthday and she found these two books for me at the Goodwill store. I love them. Not only are the covers in good shape, but they have some very interesting pages and pictures inside.
It is colder than aitch e double hockey sticks and I am getting pretty tired of it. I do, however, have some definite signs of Spring in the yard. I would really appreciate it if we could get a month of 50s and 60s before the 80s and 90s arrive.
I am leaving to visit my sister in about an hour and am planning to stop in Niles to visit my friend Sandy. I will be away for the weekend, so don't know if I will be posting or not. You know that I will be thinking of you and if I have anything to share I will. My sister and I have such fun playing cribbage, scrabble and yahtzee and shopping, walking, whatever. Her husband is a good cook and puts up with us with grace and elan.
I hope you are all well and warm and that you are making time to be creative.
