Rainy days with a busy 3 year old keeps this Momma on her toes trying to think up fun things to do. Here is one of our projects from yesterday while it was raining.
And - we HAD to make a trip to Wal-Mart. The day before yesterday when we were out running our errands Little Boy was complaining about his foot and insisted that I carry him. Hummm - new shoes? Yup - he has grown 2 sizes since May when I bought him a pair of sneakers and summer shoes. 2 sizes - no wonder his feet were hurting! I had the shoe person measure his foot just to be sure. So, new sneakers and socks, plus summer shoes were bought. He NEEDS sneakers and socks because we do lots and lots of hikes and I like to make sure he has good support for those growing feet!
And, like all good trips to Wal-Mart - you always come home with more than what you went for originally - lookie what I got! This book was marked down to $20 Canadian from $30 - almost the price of a magzine! And, it is full of great patterns - at least 5-6 that I would consider making, so that is a good deal. I've had a chance to look through it and I am now thinking about cutting down some of my fabric yardage into fat quarters... when - I have no idea - but it is a thought I am playing with. It just might make some of that fabric a bit more usable - or in my case - portable!
And today is a bit cooler and not raining - so I'm off to pack our cooler (we never leave home without it!). We are off to discover a new walk - he has lots of pent of energy to run off after yesterday and some fresh air will do my nerves good! After yeserdays downpour - the inside of my car (yes, the one with the fixed leaking windshield) is now soaking wet. A call to the repair shop - possibly a seam underneath split open when the big tree squished the car over the winter... sigh.
