(thats Mother-in-Law in the digi-scrapping world!)
I promised some pics, and finally managed to upload some pics from the camera. This is me and Mom at the Flea market in OK Falls. Ok falls is a weenie little town that has a big flea market. The flea is a semi-permanent sort of thing, with a lot blocked off year round, and vendors who come and go. When Miles went to take a photo of me, he was intercepted by one of the vendors who discussed whether we could or could not take a photo? Wierd. Perhaps, as Miles suggested, some vendors have some stolen items? Hmmmm.... at any rate, we must have looked honest because she relented.
MARIE AND DAD FEEDING
Yesterday Mom showed me how to make good pastry. She says quite honestly that she 'murders' it... and she really is rough on it - and it turns out perfectly. Its like the pastry you see in the commercials, all fluffy, flaky and light. She gets her hands right in it and mangles it. I think I picked up a few pointers though... When I learned, way back in high school, and ever since, I've been under the impression that you were not to handle it too much... but from now on I'm going to just kill it! I think Mom and I are going to tackle arranging my kitchen cupboards today - should be fun!
DAD'S HAS ALPACA HAIR?
Just kidding, of course... good thing they have a sense of humour. We've built two entire puzzles in the time they've been here - and ate far, far too much! Today Miles and Dad are going to go and pick up some owl pellets - right, owl pellets. Miles is having a special day with the gifted students in the district on friday at the Desert Center... the kids will be dissecting owl pellets as part of it! I will try to remember today to take some pics of some droppings for the blog - there are entire skeletons in them!
Going to run - Mom and Dad are up. You all have a Blessed Day. Thanks for all your comments and encouragement while I'm away visiting - I really appreciate it!
