regular old weekend

Friday night Victoria and I bumbled through the beginning of a set of fairy wings. They're not done yet, but I predict that they will be less than fabulous when they are. But they will be festooned with heart stickers and pink stuff.

Saturday morning I walked the western section of the Northwest Branch trail. It was the perfect day for it. skipernicus forgot to accompany me, but he did acquiesce to opening his door and feeding me a beer once I'd finished. I was telling the fairy wing story when his wife said, "$12 from Hearthsong" and found them in about 25 seconds. On the other hand, I asked skipernicus what I had missed the night before at FF and he said, "Nothing. No one good came. It was dreadful." So if you're ever wondering why I would be friends with skipernicus, please refer to this post. If you wonder why I like his wife, take a number and stand behind me. I do, but there is no earthly reason for it.

Sunday Brian wanted to do the neighborhood House and Garden Tour. I had been on it before and knew that little kids are not especially welcome. I wanted to go to the Sheep and Wool Festival, but it seemed a little old for Victoria, too. Another option was the Bay Bridge walk, but again it was skewed higher, age-wise, than I'd have liked. So we visited my parents, instead. I upgraded a lot of stuff on my mom's computer while Victoria charmed the grands.

Some cleaning, some reading, just another too-short weekend.

My FIL took my 8 year old niece to the Sheep and Wool Festival. He said she really enjoyed it, but that the bathroom lines were long. Otherwise, he said he was really amazed at what a big deal it was. Apparently, it was quite impressive.

My FIL also did the Bay bridge walk. He said there were a surprising number of kids there, some of whom were being pulled in little red wagons. But, I agree with you that it's just a bit too long for youngsters.

I will share with you my philosophy on taking very little kids places. Lucky you!

Practically everything is a novelty when you are really young. Walking the Bay Bridge is no more exciting than tossing pebbles in Sligo Creek. So if the enjoyment is the same, why expend extra resources for no greater gain?

But one day I WILL get to the Sheep and Wool Festival. It is a big deal, I think it's one of the largest shows of its kind. And I manage to miss it year afer year!

It sounds like I should be hanging out with your FIL--we're on the same channel, obviously!
