Brown Paper Packages...
I think we all have at least one of those.
She and I met on Karen Kingsbury's facebook fan page - we noticed each other's comments because we have the same unusual first name - Renette.
I think Renette's love language must be gifts, like mine...
...because she sends me beautiful packages - one of my favourite things!
I can organise!
Plus some really fine, colourful yarn so I can attempt making lace.
I'm really looking forward to that!
I thought it would be months before I got the chance to read this, I don't think the library even has a copy yet!
I'm saving it for those long, lonely feed times...
And such useful and relevant-to-my-current-needs patterns too!
And hair accessories that I can make up myself, satisfying my current obsession with creating things.
Renette sent them shoes (which The Frog won't take off!) and activities for the holidays.
My kids are beyond bored!
Stuff for skinned knees!
I've been battling lately because the heat and humidity has not been very good for scab formation.
(Sorry if that was a bit too ewww.....)
Both boys have had issues with skinned knees getting all mucky and septic.
It's a connection point that you screw two plastic bottles together with.
And with a bit of coloured water and some glitter you can create your own whirlpool.
Or tornado, as the kids keep calling it!
Of course, Miss Piggy is sucking all signs of intelligence from me and I'm unable to actually explain the physics of it all, but it's really fun to look at!
Somehow it's weight is distributed in such a way that, you can balance the entire thing on it's beak.
He's just pretending it can fly!
As a result of this 'brown paper package' we were running late for my lift to my midwife appointment this monring!
I couldn't tear the boys away from the box of goodies and get them dressed and fed!
Miss Piggy is currently fully engaged, but facing my right, not my back like she should be doing.
Oh well, she'll get there...
