Today Davey told me that he wants a Surprise Party for his birthday. He said that he wants to walk in and everyone should be hiding. I was instructed to hide under the couch (that will be a bit tight).
Then he said that he has to start working on forgetting that he wants a surprise party so that he will be surprised.
So we will try to pull this off best we can.
I wound some yarn this morning. Here is my yarn swift.
My hands serve as the winder. This is actually kind of relaxing to do. It probably saves me time, as I am terrible with a yarn swift. I have a knack for making a huge tangled mess 90% of the time.
I probably just need more practice. Maybe I will get one one of these days.
This yarn is Madeline Tosh Chunky. It is for a hat I am test knitting for my friend for her book. It is incredible yarn. Soft and squishy. It feels great to knit with. I love it.
Let’s see, oh yes – Davey and I had a lovely picnic lunch outside today.
He also decided that he wanted a super squirter.
Unfortunately it was a little much for him to wield.
And finally yesterday Davey and I went letterboxing again. We went 2 for 3. Two boxes were so much fun to find. Clever clues and one was in a particularly pretty location. It was a big open area with the mountains to the west. Very nice. The third box had been placed by a bridge. I think that creek flash flooded at least once this year, so it may have washed away. Or I just didn’t find it. Either way, Davey has so much fun exploring the area around where we find the boxes. One box was under the ridge of a really big flat rock, so we sat there for awhile. The second was in a park, and we looked at totem poles and walked all around. It’s enabled us to find new fun places around here.
I could be a spokesperson for Letterboxing America!
Oh and I almost finished my second hexipuff today at McDonald’s. Davey played at the playland. We are in search of Smurfette, Gardener and I think his name is Grumpy? No luck today though. Apparently Smurfette is a hot item and difficult to find.
That’s quite a mish mash!
