Crafty inconsequential randomness in all its glory
Thursday, July 22, 2010
The kids and I were standing in line at the garden center of Fred Meyers. Of course, we had picked up some more flowers to plant along with the necessities we were buying and then.....we saw them.
A net bag filled with ladybugs. I showed the kids.
They thought the ladybugs were cool.
They thought we should get the bag.
They thought the poor ladybugs needed a home....
preferably in our backyard.
What's a curious Mama to do?
Of course we bought the darn bag of ladybugs.
Took them home.
Waited for Papa.
And set them free as the sun went down.
Hey, at least my kids don't nag me for toys or candy while we're waiting in the check-out line, right? (Okay, I take that back, Peelu does frequently tell me that she really, really NEEDS a chocolate bar while we're waiting in line - oh wait, maybe that's me talking).
Wife to a VERY understanding man (even if he does roll his eyes and duck back into his garage way too much); mother to three maniacs,crafter, professional volunteer, crazed maniac in her own right...yep, that about covers it for now.
It's about crafts, family, gardening, life....really whatever the heck I want to talk about. I am wordy, messy, opinionated, disorganized, lacking in focus, manic, craft obsessed...and pretty much this all spills out on the pages of this blog. You've been warned!
