Friday, June 4, 2004Jr. Weaver
Grandson Chris finished his bear today. The yarn is some carder waste that I spun up. Chris started on this four days ago and got it sewn together today. He had quite a bit of advice from Gramma but did the weaving and most of the assembly by himself. Now his little brother wants to try. He got about half a block woven today and seems to have the hang of it, tho his attention span is a bit short.
Today Karen (their Mom) read the article in the new Spin-Off by Veronica Cox that featured a picture of my loom, and now wants to try her hand at Kool-Aid dying and the spinning wheel. More fiber addicts!

Thursday, June 3, 2004Happy Birthday, Daughter!
We celebrated Karen's big 4-oh last night. I BBQed some ribs (I'm a pure amateur at the grill but it was eatable! lol) and we baked a brownie cake... the chocolate-ist thing I could think of! It was a noisy little family celebration but fun. I told her that having a 100 year old woman at the party was the best way I could think of to make 40 feel young! lol Grandmother thought that was a pretty good joke, too!

Monday, May 31, 2004Summer... finally!
We are having a ball! We went to the swimming hole yesterday. The boys all took the boats Grandpa made for them out of leftover lumber ends. We put strings on them and they pulled them around most of the afternoon. Grampa had the water pistol and Karen and I sat in the shade with the camera. Our little dog turned out to be a water bug, too, so everybody had a good time! lol We went home and made milkshakes then the boys played in the creek with their boats for the rest of the day.
