There were paper cranes . . . and markers . . . little girls laughing and dancing.
I stayed up too late, slept in, and drank too much coffee . . .
It was a very nice, very relaxing weekend.
We have had an old wooden Moosehead crate for years. I think I have kept it all this time only because it reminds me of a very dear friend and all the fun we had when we were young. I have been cleaning out and getting rid of stuff for the last few weeks . . . and had decided to get rid of it. This mood to clean out has really taken hold of me - and even the sentimental me is able to part with things that I have kept for years. Richard surprised me yesterday by using the wood to make me a cute little wood box. I put all of the little boxes he makes me to good use . . . and this one I can be a little more sentimental about than usual.
I forgot to post a picture of the coffee mug that Jennifer and Lily made me for Mother's Day.
That is Lily's hand print in purple . . . with her other hand print on the other side . . . and her precious kindergarten writing.
I crocheted this beanie for Charlotte on Saturday. I haven't crocheted anything in quite sometime and forgot how therapeutic it is for me. Anytime I crochet something I think about my Grandma. I find myself looking through my crochet hooks until I find an old one that belonged to her. I couldn't help but think the other day when I was making this beanie - that she may have made something for me using the same crochet hook.
My weekend was very relaxing. There is a lot to be said for spending time at home with the people you love.
