november and december 2009December 21st
Merry Christmas to you all.
packaged all the cookies I made and I have 3 ice cream pails left. I
can't believe I made that many cookies and some new ones I tried are
really good. I didn't get to make biscotti cookies though, maybe next
went funky with my laptop and I am hopping to have it resolved tomorrow
but I can only hope for the best. Considering it is xmas and getting
things fixed right now will be a mircle.
Anyways Merry Christmas and I will talk to you soon.
The weather is still pretty chipper here but we are dealing with it and I am trying to keep the boys busy.
know I am crazy but I just found out that lego has gotten the Toy Story
deal and they are coming out with Toy Story lego in January. And I am
so drooling over it all. I already put my request in to Roy for all
the sets because HELLO it is lego and Toy Story together.
Did I tell you I am a toy junkie?
It is 11am and it is -36 outside and I see trees moving in the wind. I really don't want to go outside.
is 8am right now and the temperature outside reads -38 Celsius, I am
not opening the door for anyone and the boys are not leaving. So much
for seeing Santa today at the mall.
I guess it is a good day to make cookies.
the 5th of December,Ronan was so sick for the grandparents and then I
noticed little red dots on him like the hives, well the dots got darker
and I took him to the doctor to find out he has baby measels. Can't
the kid catch a break?
Edmonton show was great but I came home with both kids sick with colds
and Ronan I ended up taking to the hospital to be checked out and they
gave him a whole butt load of medicine. And half of it he liked and
the other half was a battle but he is taking it even if it has to kill
The weather has turned nasty here and tomorrow I have the ST.Paul craft show
which I am looking forward to because it is the last craft show I do.
I still have many orders to fill but I am getting there and I have most
of the beads made I just need to warm my office up so that I can make
the finished pieces.
some pieces I made for the edmonton show this weekend.
just spent the last hour cleaning beads. After you make the beads you
have to clean the clay out of the centre so that the bead is ready to
be strung. It is not my favorite job because then my fingers get pruny
Today Ronan said "hi" to me and Cathy and then later in the
afternoon he looked at Roy and said "Hello" I am taking this as his
first words because a while back he did say "mom" but that was only to
here are the beads I got to make the last two days.
craft show in Meadow Lake Saskatewan was nice. I lucked out and found
a ducky blanket that is the same furry fabric as Quinton's baby
blanket. The blanket he has was sewn by a good friend where as this
new one is just serged around the edges.
And I did find this really
neat jewelry that I can't wait to wear. I buy alot of bead jewelry but
it is hard to wear because people just presume it is mine so I am
excited about these pieces because it not what I do but just as
the trip to the city was great and the weather was beautiful. The boys
had fun at the farm and I don't know why but I see a change in Ronan.
He may not be talking but he is pointing alot and there is a change in
how he looks at toys and things. I can actually see his brain working.
Getting ready to do the Holly Berry craft show in Meadow Lake, Sask. I have to remember the time difference and so I will have a very early morning on the road.
flies when you are crazy. I only got 3 days to torch this week and I
tried to make the most of it. I made lots of snowmen and penguins and
cutesy beads. I even took one day just to make beads and play with
colors and some of those beads actually look quite nice.
I am packing up the stuff for the fall arts and craft show on the Cold Lake Base .
I am parent helper in Quinton's class and Quinton has to bring
something for show and tell and I decided to take the drum and rattle I
made years ago in the native arts course I took. So I except alot of
noise tomorrow. I also have to bring a snack and I decided to make the
kids be food testers and tell me which mock peanut butter and jelly
sandwich they like(because it is no nut school). I know I am crazy but
I hope it will entertain the kids.
it is 7pm here and all the boys are sleeping right now. Ronan has the
flu and Roy and Quinton have colds. I have a cold too but someone has
to hold it all together. I am trying to keep it together because I have
a craft show in Bonnyville on Saturday
and I don't want to be sick and miss the show. But it is only
wednesday and I hope it all works out and I just get really sick(heaven
forbid) on sunday.
