Since I haven't been doing much sewing, but feel obligated to provide some sort of blog content, I will tell you what I have been up to this past week.
Mostly, I have been spending lots of time with my Eva lately. The school year where we live is winding up, and the graduation festivities are being held this week. Next week, all schools in our district (including preschools) are closed for the county fair. It is a big deal, I tell you. We are out in the country, and there are lots of families who live on farms and ranches, and the 4H is a major player. We know kids who have been raising chickens, lambs, even cows.
I've taken Eva to the pool, which this early in season we have pretty much had to ourselves. She has graduated from a swim vest to "floaties" , as you can see in the photo above. Once the weather warms up more, school is on recess, and other children are free to use the facilities she will have little friends to play with. For now, she is stuck with Nana lumbering into the pool with her, but at least she doesn't have any judgments as to how I look in my swimsuit.
We had her for a sleepover this past weekend, and she entertained us with a puppet show. Of course, every show requires an audience, she pointed out reasonably. She lined Denny (that's what she calls her Grandpa Dennis), me, and Ozzie up on her bed. We enjoyed front row seats, and only had to restrain Ozzie from killing the puppets a few times.
