Children's Museum

We had an outing today. A friend of mine has two children the samme ages as mine and she asked me on Wed. if I wanted to take the kids to the Children's Museum in Oak Ridge. I was all for it; she said her son really enjoys it and I remember my goddaughter used to love going too (although I had never been.) I talked to Mom and sh said her kids would like it too. So there we were, 3 of us with 8 kids in tow. We looked like a school class taking a tour! The kids really had a lot of fun!

I haven't gotten any sewing done today. I've gotten about 5 minutes worth of knitting done. Of course it's not anything I need knit by Christmas! I need to clean my kitchen and figure out what to start on next. Maybe that XL men's camo slipper for a gift exchange. I knit one, ran out of yarn. I picked up more of the yarn last weekend but wanted to get that Ugly Quilt top done. Which, btw, I have except I want to put some dark blue borders on it, to kind of contain the madness. It's a Non-so-Ugly Quilt now, LOL! I like it!

I hit Mr Kay's Used Books of my way to the museum. I used up the rest of the credit I had with them (for trading in books I was done with). I got One for the Money by Janet Evanovich and Death by Chocolate by Diane Mott Davidson. I've read both but it's been a while since I read Death by Chocolate so I'll read it first. It's book 2 in the Goldy culinary-mystery series and I'd like to have all of them.

It looks like I migt not get anything done tonight afterall. Hannah just woke up and is fussy and whiny and out of sorts. It may be a cuddle-Hannah and watch-Jeremiah play with his train night. Oh well. :-D


  1. As I said before the quilt will be beautiful!! (smile) And all them kids wow makes me tired just thinking of your outing! My hat is off to you taking them all at once! Keep up the good work! God bless Marion

  2. That looks great Des. I am sure he will like that quilt a lot!
    One day I will have to try one, It sure turns out pretty.
    I would be in trouble if I could trade books.. Oh and I saw your Wish List. LOVE IT!
