Can't Trust That Man
"Don't worry, we won't even need you!" That's what they told me when I arrived at our business office yesterday morning. So I drank my coffee, watched all the activity, snuggling and chatting with my grandsons. But as they went thru the segments of the commercial, they realized that I was needed, and not in the background. My training as an eldest child and mother of many emerged, doing what needed to be done. It was fun, I'll just cringe to see myself on the tube, taking some consolation that it will be only a few seconds of air time! I have a feeling the commercial may end up on Youtube and you'll be able to cringe for me as well. :D The premise of the ad is that some insurance companies slap you around, but you'll be treated right at Mid-Columbia Insurance. As you can see here, being mean comes naturally to me, lol!
Linen Closet Labels by Liberty Street Designs went to the beach with me last weekend. My last attempt with this chart was aborted due to my lack of mathematical skills when figuring the fabric size I needed. This time I'm using a piece of 32 ct Belfast linen in a silvery gray color and some Silk 'n Colors threads from my stash.
My three youngest have been hit with the flu, so it's pretty quiet around here today. For all of my friends with little ones suffering with the same kind of illnesses, take heart! Nursing sick older children is not as exhausting and slowing the pace is kinda nice.
