In which Twila goes to the Symphony

Monday, February 23, 2009

The things we do to instill a little culture! Jamie and I took Twila and Bobbi to see the Grand Rapids Symphony and the Enchanted Theater Company perform Cinderella.

First there were crafts to do. Twila didn't want to do them at first but after giving it a try she decided she wanted to do them all.

Check out the armor!! Should have brought the boys to this one maybe.......
Then we visited the instrument room. Twila didn't want to try each instrument but hey, I have a new camera! No photo op was to be missed!
Finally the symphony!! Twila said it was okay. The rest of us enjoyed ourselves just fine.

Josiah turns 13!!!

Twila's bunny Star died unexpectedly this week. A friend of mine was kind enough to trade a bunny for wool :)

Cabin Fever

Wednesday, February 4, 2009

It gets a little crazy at the Peck household when the kids are stuck in the house. Honestly, if I get shot with one more makeshift arrow from a bow fashioned from a coat hanger, I may ban coat hangers permanently from the house.

Eventually they do wear out though.

Knit One, Kill Two Chapter 5 - 8

Sunday, February 1, 2009

Since I am sick (boohoo) I made it through chapter 8. The book is started to warm up to me but I probably won't read the next in the series.

Kelly's dislike for Steve irks me. It's juvenile for one and in examining myself I realize it is partly because I don't relate. Never having had some wonderful, sauve, charming guy (and nice to boot) until my husband* interested in me I am really feeling irritated with her. Who cares if your last boyfriend was jerk, be nice at least. Okay I will quit complaining about Kelly.......

This new character Martha, intrigues me. I am wondering if she is all she says she is.......oh and the baby out of wedlock, I saw it coming. Really, I did.

Please note the Maidenshawl Read Along/Knit Along has been moved here.

*My dear hubby sent me flowers every single Monday at work throughout our engagement. Granted, it was a short engagement but every Monday! ::sigh::
