I wish I had some decent knitting to show. However, I have been knitting novelty scarves for teachers. They love them and it is unique and much better than a candle or a coffee mug. Not that I ever gave either of those as a gift.
Anyway, Gracie just called. She forgot her lunch money. Way too distracted this morning writing a flowery thank you note to her teacher. She kills me. It said something like, "I have gone to many schools and you are one of my favorite teachers…".
We had a lovely visit with my friend Brian from Paris. He showed up yesterday with his brother. We were all still in our pajamas. Oh well, we jumped on the trampoline a bit. I feared for my children’s lives as Brian is a bit of a wild jumper. (Kevin was out golfing with his dad). And we discussed my upcoming trip to Paris. Big grin here. I am going the first week in October.
Kevin booked my trip Tuesday night. I love wireless internet and laptops. I won’t be flying business class this time but I think I will survive. Just kidding, of course. I know there was more that I wanted to say but I am distracted by thoughts of Paris just a few months away.
Time to go finish a few more novelty scarves. And a question. The crossing guard is a crocheter. But not a passionate one. Do I give her a gift certificate to the yarn shop? I knit her a hat for Christmas and gave her a gift card to Target. She’s not a novelty scarf kinda woman, you know? Any thoughts? I love her–she’s a doll. She really throws herself in front of those cars that aren’t paying attention when the kids are crossing to save them. I am serious!
