Some Summer Ramblings
The girls and I were helping with Vacation Bible School at our church last week, so between work and running over there, they were full days!
My youngest needs/wants a rug for her room, and with many of them being expensive, and our budget rather small, I turned to the Internet (and many creative people) for ideas. I found various versions of pom-pom rugs, and that is what we are doing! My daughter picked out the colors of yarn she wanted, and I am making the pom-poms. It is a simple activity that can be done while watching TV, and doesn't require too much focus. Once I use up all of the yarn, I will tie the pom-poms onto some of the rubber shelf-liner, or you could use non-slip matting that goes under small rugs.
That is my latest summer project, and there are many other things that I still have to finish. . . Often my project for the day or week is dependent on my attention span or time availability.
I have also been trying different flavors of "infused" water. I am really enjoying cucumber and basil added to my water. It is very refreshing, and adds just enough flavor to make it that much more enjoyable. I have done lemon or lime slices in the past, and still like those, but would like to try watermelon, or blueberry, or some combination of summer fruits.
I think that is all for now, so until next time. . .
