I managed a bit of sewing this week. The plan had been for Abigail to wear this outfit to the 4th of July festivities today, but she obviously won't be attending now. That's okay...as my mom always says, one of the nice things about fabric is that it doesn't rot -- and we can be patriotic the rest of the year, too, so Abigail can wear this another time!Bruce and Abigail are going to lie low today; David and I are heading an hour or so north to enjoy a big to-do on a friend's farm. Happy 4th of July!
Yesterday David and I ran a lot of errands that have been piling up over the last crazy month (Bruce was home with Abigail). Shopping is never my idea of a fun way to spend a day...and shopping on a day when a lot of people are off work and doing their shopping, too, is enough to make me choke...but we got everything done and it's a relief to have it all crossed off my list! One of the things we bought yesterday was an 18-inch doll for Abigail...she has been asking for an American Girl doll, but (for several reasons) we aren't going to grant that request...however, this lovely doll has a new home and Abigail was so very, very excited to have a new friend, "Amanda"!In other activities this week, David spent an afternoon re-painting his airplane.
