Crafty chick

I’d like to tell you that I’m completely over my blue mood, but that would be a lie. I have, however, been having an enjoyable weekend despite it.

My original plan for yesterday was to have a relaxing afternoon at the spa, but since the kid’s plans got cancelled, so did mine. So instead, the two of us went into town to pick up some craft supplies and to paint some ceramics at Wild @ Art. We ended up spending most of the day out-and-about but it was quite enjoyable. In the evening, we both worked on our silliness worksheets and after she went to bed I re-learned how to use watercolour paints.

Today we were going to spend some time doing some crafts together, but instead, she abandoned me to go play with her friend. This is cool because (1) kids should spend time playing with other kids and (2) I got some time alone after all!

So, instead, I’ve spent the morning colouring silly little picture frames and baking banana bread. Soon I will start making lunch (fried egg sandwiches, anyone?) then a big pot of split pea soup to re-stock the freezer.

The best part about getting all of this done so early in the day? There’s still plenty of time for an EastEnders omnibus and maybe I can even get started on my new Ian Rankin novel. Oh… and maybe I can even sneak a nice, long soak in the tub into the day somewhere. Yay!

  1. Yay, Michaels! what a cool store chain!
    Love the video, Frances. Can’t wait to see pics of the finished frames.
    Good painting on the dragon too – is that the kid’s work?
