As long as they stayed together they could check out the books while I looked around. With one eye on them and the other on my mission I enjoyed the time. They each chose books - the 11 year old 3 novels, the 8 year old 6 age appropriate SpongeBob books. After a check over of the content, they were happy that all of their choices were fine.
I found a small Tuscany looking wrought iron 'thingie' to put my salt, pepper, and garlic containers in. I'm not sure if I'll like the addition, but for .98 cents, I can take a few days to figure it out.
As a small celebration for the last day of school we went to a local fast food place for lunch. We ate off of the dollar menu. I was happy to hear them say they had not been there in months. Neither had I. But, a celebration is, after all, a celebration, so we had ice cream cones to end the meal.
We came back to my house to play a WII game and chalk up the driveway. How delightful to hear the sounds of a child playing, using his imagination.
I had a very good day.
Then I took a nap!
|Not bad for .98 cents. Looking pretty after the bath and disinfectant rub down. It looks like it may have been a small flower pot holder in it's first life.|
