My latest ATC swap is called Medieval Animals. That means any kind of animal as long as there is a medieval object of some sort in the picture. Here are my first two attempts:
The host of the swap admitted that she was no expert on history (nor am I), so if either of these don't qualify as medieval remember, it's all in fun. ;)
I bought ingredients to make tostados yesterday, so I may just go build one of those. I had planned to have one last night, but dear daughter Micah bought me a cheeseburger after I helped her out with the girls. She was parked next to my car when I came out of work and she asked if I would sit in the van with the girls while she did a couple of quick errands. I do that now and then so she doesn't have to unload all three of them just to run in and do something, especially if she has several stops. I was glad to do it and got supper as well! At one point Audrey (3 yrs. old) had to go to the bathroom. After she and Mom returned we were pulling out of the parking spot when we heard a tremulous little voice from the back seat of the van saying, "But I'm not buckled iiiiin!" I'm so glad Audrey made us aware! Micah is known as The Car Seat Lady amongst her friends because she's a trained baby car seat technician (certified and everything) and so she doesn't slip up often. Thanks for the heads up, Audrey!
Some of you who did the Wind in the Willow Tour might remember my ancient swamp willows. They now belong to someone else, but I can still look at them. I just noticed yesterday that this poor little leaning over tree is sprouting a brand new swamp willow from its base. Is that cool or what? I hope the new owners will leave it there to grow.
Well, I'm trying not to spend the entire day on the computer. We'll see how that goes!
Have a glorious day, stay cool, and shalom!
