Here's the box. I have been carrying it in my car, for just such emergencies. You know the feeling. You want to make a mini right now and don't have anything to make it with. I have used it a couple of times for short periods when waiting for a store to open.
This time I got serious. I jumped in and then jumped from one thing to another when the six year old got bored with one thing and needed to do something different.
When I got home, Tessie had two new needlepoint baskets, five books, a new alligator bag(sans clasp) and the start of a corner on a rug.
I am sure that you noticed that I said that Tessie had all of these. Hey! As soon as I walked in the door, she demanded, "What did you make for me?"
Hold on a minute. The birds in the back yard are squawking. Yup. Hudson Hawk is here. He was sitting as nice as you please on the back of one of the lawn chairs. As soon as I grabbed the camera and ran to the kitchen window, he decided to move...Well, at least it is proof that he really was here.
OK. Back to the computer. I did want to say thank you for all of the nice compliments and entries for the drawing. I love hearing your stories about your minis as well as the entries. By the way, a couple of you have the impression that, if you don't have a blog, you can't enter. You can. All you have to do is be a follower on my list.
We still have a long way to go until the end of the Reader's Choice Award from About.com. I really appreciate all of your votes. Please keep it up.
Tessie announced this morning that she was tired of traipsing around the desk with the sign. She proceeded to try to drill a hole in the top of the desk to plant it in.
I managed to talk her out of that, but I am going to have to watch her closely. She is now standing right in front of me trying to hammer it into the desk with her fist. Incorrigible. She's completely incorrigible.
The real world is intruding. I have to go do some real housework and real laundry. Would one of you keep an eye on Tessie whilst I go to work?
See you tomorrow.
