Looking Glass is coming along great. Only one more row, then the borders. If I hadn't been called away on a pool play date, I know I would have finished the main body of the top yesterday. But after all, it is summer, and there are fun things to be done outside.
We had such a splendid time with our friends. My friend takes care of her grandchildren, four of them who range in age from 3 to 6. I tell you, trying to keep track of five children in the pool is no laughing matter. And it isn't like we had it all to ourselves either. There were lots of moms and kids there. Loads of splashing, laughing and all around fun. My friend and I were in the water the whole time with the children, and we got a good work out.
One of her little grandson's favorite game was hanging on my back, pretending I was American Pharaoh and having me "run" back and forth across the width of the pool. Did I mention he was clinging to my back like a jockey? I came home, sat down on the couch and immediately fell asleep. We are planning to make this a weekly get together, so wish me luck getting used to the physical activity.
If I can keep my eyes open Friday, I will attempt to finish up Looking Glass.
