Well at least my dining room is... now if we could only get some cooler temps around here. At least with my fall stuff up I can start to wrap my mind around it. This is a wall hanging I did a couple of years back as a class sample but I really like it and pull it out every fall. I also did a Christmas one that I didn't keep cause I really didn't care much for it. The shop picked out the fabrics and it had too much black in it. The shops always seem to have a plethora of black Christmas fabrics and while I agree a small amount can make something look a bit more elegant, black is not a color I relate to Christmas. Give me purple any day!
I did a few new things for my Etsy shop today . These two drawstring bags for boys. I was surprised that my 11 y/o actually liked the dragon one. I thought it would be too young for him.
Is it just me or has the price of food gone totally out of control? As the price of gas goes down, food goes waaay up. I did some grocery shopping today and spent almost $300 and I didn't even buy much in the way of meat. Mostly just staples (milk, oj, bread) and then stuff for kids and hubby's lunches snacks etc. It's just crazy. I shouldn't be able to unload $300 worth of groceries in three trips all by myself.
Monday's soccer practice got cancelled due to rain which I'm okay with. We've got about another month to go before soccer season is over. Not sure what we'll do next but I'd like to keep Nate busy. He's better when he's busy. Need to look into getting Julz back into gymnastics. She did it for years in Tampa and she really misses it. She makes me nervous cause she's always doing cartwheels on the tile floor.
My friend Ann and I had a discussion about lying the other day (our kids, not us) and she asked me if I thought girls or boys lied more. Of course since she has only boys ~ 3 of them ~ she didn't have much to compare to. I told her I thought girls lied a lot more but the difference is they get caught less... and boys lie about stupid stuff. Stuff you can check on immediately and see they are lying. Girls are sneakier and their lies are much more subtle. What do you think?
