Little Updates

Archive for December 2009

It snowed in Dallas this morning, a very unusual occurrence for this time of the year in this area. It didn’t snow at our house though.

Today, among other things, I looked at the fabric I purchased yesterday. I measured it with my new straight edge – I am not sure what that particular sewing tool is called. Then, I decided that I needed my straight pins to mark out the lines where I wanted to cut the fabric. My straight pins were in another part of the house entirely and by the time I thought about my fabric again the day was over.

Oh, and I found the wrench needed to dissemble the crib in our upstairs family room to move it into a bedroom. Sadly, it did not fit through the bedroom door once assembled.

As many of you have noted – December is here! It is raining here… It has rained most of the fall. I guess we should be accustomed to it. Sometimes it is nice. “That dog” stops barking when it is raining. I presume the poor dog’s owner lets him/her inside during inclement weather.

I shopped for fabric today and loved almost everything I saw. Between the rain and my pondering beautiful colors, interesting patterns and unusual textures, that was my day. Grandpapa is looking at the sale advertisements.

A long day with a sweet ending. To quote from a thank you note we received today:

“Dear Nana and Grandpapa – Thank you so much for the cell phone you got for my birthday! I like to push the buttons and dance to the music. Too bad we can’t use it to talk to each other! It was fun to get to see you in Texas. Mom says we’ll come back again next month for Christmas! I’ll talk to you soon on the computer! Love, Stella”

PS The cell phone was a toy phone.
