He played with them for a long time, and every grandkid after him has had a go at the basket of cars.
In this day of computer games, and high priced toys, it is incredible to me how much fun they still get from $8 worth of second hand toy cars.
"I have to go now?"
Here's O, come to cheer us up.
And Cockadoo, her doll.
Who loves Cockadoo???
When O comes to the studio, she has a routine. First, she hunts Sydney down, though most days, Syd is at the door as soon as she comes in.
Then she gets an animal cracker.......she knows where they are.
Then she goes upstairs to the kids' table to have a "tea party".
She has a new trick, which she showed me today.
She goes into the front bedroom, and hollers down through the grate, "Who's down there??" about a hundred times.
Of course, I am obliged to holler back, "Who's UP THERE?"
I wouldn't want to have a little one, I am way past that.
But gosh, having them around sure does make me smile.
Today was a good day. After waking up two days in a row with a smasher, this morning I woke up with a 3, and it stayed that way all day. I swear it's the weather.
This is where I do a little dance. :)
I did some weaving this morning, but this afternoon, I was on a mission.
My old coffee table is usually COVERED, with books, magazines, and knitting projects. It is BELOVED by me, bought at a garage sale for $2, many moons ago. I resisted replacing it, even though my kids often heckled me about it. Eddie used to lay under it, so I would never get one that had storage under it, while he was alive.
Roy could not care less. He has never, ever slept under it. So I decided maybe it was time to give in, and get a new fancy coffee table with baskets underneath.
So off to Target, where for $20 each I found the perfect baskets.
One for magazines, one for knitting.
And now, my most recent finished baby surprise sweater, is lovely to photograph against the
sweet wood grain of my old coffee table, now that you can see it.
My youngest daughter came back with a good one.
"We paid EXTRA and had Dr. Rekate do a few additional adjustments."
Should be interesting, yes???
