If you have been following Really Random for any length of time, you will quickly realize that I love spending time with my grandkids. The other day, I had Ruby and Amelia after school as well. We went to the local cupcake shop. While they were excited at the prospect of choosing their cupcakes, when it came right down to it, three of the four opted for ice cream. Ruby was the only one who chose a cupcake--Red Velvet--very good choice. And why not try for the unicorn look with your cones?
On Saturday night, I attended another craft night fundraiser, this time for Central Valley Justice Coalition. I made the same project as the first time, but chose a different design. Christa gave a little presentation on CVJC and the work they are doing. She is an amazing education coordinator and we are very proud of the work she does.
I sat at a table of five, and we had such a good time. Jane and her friend, Pamela, working on their project.
Rhonda and Shawna. Rhonda was a little stressed by this project, leading to her facial expression. We told her the goal was fun, not perfection. Not sure whether she believed us or not. :)
The kids were out of school on Monday so we started the morning by going to Fantasy Donuts. There are way too many choices. And if there is one thing that is hard for me to resist, it's a good donut.
Charlotte chose some kind of maple donut. I think it might have had cream filling.
Gabe chose a jelly-filled heart-shaped glazed.
Ella loves her chocolate and sprinkles.
Levi chose the same as Charlotte, and I had a classic maple bar.
That gave Levi enough energy to help Gramps with the roses. Our good friend is a master gardener and swears by a certain rose formula each year. It includes alfalfa pellets, epsom salts, fertilizer, and a couple of other things. Let me know if you are interested and I'll send you the recipe. We have had good luck with it; it feeds the roses and keeps the aphids away.
Meanwhile, Charlotte did some homework, and Gabe and Ella watched a movie. The progression of movie watching:
Start with a quilt and a pillow.
Add some stuffed animals.
Add another quilt. Tell Grandma to stop.taking.pictures. Alas, I can't help it--they are so cute. :)
Mark bought this bouquet of stock the other day. They are the most fragrant flowers we have ever had--you can smell them throughout the house. And they are SO pretty.
But I won't be filling my glass with this--$29.99 a bottle!
