rainy friday

rainy day

Oh where, oh where has the sun gone? It was out earlier this morning, but now the rain is pouring down. I’m actually having a rather cozy day at home. I have my friend Rachel’s recipe for Indian meatballs simmering away in the Crock Pot. They smell so delicious and I will definitely be sharing the recipe with you. Lulu has been happily playing (mostly) independently today, so I’ve been able to get a few things done.

Later I need to make a hair bow for a little girl in Noah’s class. He’s going to her birthday party tomorrow and a while back (when I was still selling on Etsy), I ordered these adorable Strawberry Shortcake bottlecaps to use as bow centers. He thought she’d like one, and it goes along with the gift we picked out for her. I haven’t played with my ribbons in quite a while. I hope I didn’t forget how to make bows, LOL!

Yes, despite all the doomsday predictions, I am still planning on tee-ball and a birthday party tomorrow. Although I haven’t actually seen any of the people proclaiming “The End Is Nigh” (do you think they paid their motorhome insurance for the RVs they’re travelling in?), there is a “May 21” billboard close by. This one is on Rt. 9G in Hyde Park (I haven’t been out that way in a while, but last time it was still there). I snapped this photo back in March:

I could write on and on about this, so I’ll spare you. (My poor husband, on the other hand…) Chances are we’ll all still be here Sunday morning and I just hope that the “Camping-ites” somehow find comfort because I’m sure many will be disappointed. I feel very sorry for them and if/when this is a non-event,  I hope their faith won’t be completely shattered. Maybe they’ll turn to a religion that isn’t quite as… apocalyptic? Anyway, I’m sure you are all bored to death with this stuff, so I’ll stop, LOL.

Anyway, I have a lot to do over the next few days getting ready for a visit from my in-laws and for Lulu’s birthday party. I am so excited about all of it! Hope you are having a great Friday!
