So they had their tea, including some fun little pink treats from Cost Plus, which just opened a store here last week - signs that we're moving up in the world! (That's a whole 'nother story about a friend talking me into playing hooky to go to their grand opening one day!) I don't have to be so stingy with the treats now because I don't have to wait till out next trip to a bigger town.
Today I got the hare-brained idea to attempt to make them dresses for Easter. Partly because I like to sew, partly because they like dresses so much, partly to use up some of the material I have, partly to satisfy my urge to create something, partly because hearing another woman talk about making her daughter a dress for Easter got me thinking (she only has one girl and her kids are in school - I shouldn't compare myself - especially since there are never more than 30 seconds in a row at most that someone doesn't need my undivided attention around here). This idea is hare-brained because Easter is less than two weeks away, they have a closet full of dresses, either passed down from others or that still fit from last year, there are a bajillion other things that should be a higher priority, and so forth. So we'll see. It probably won't happen but it is good to have a goal in mind, right?
Speaking of people needing my undivided attention: I've written this one sentence at a time over the past several hours. It may be a little scattered. Sorry to be so wordy, but this is my only outlet besides Geoff, and he can only take so much!
