Life has been busy, but I am currently on vacation which has been wonderfully lazy. I’ve spent most of the week listening to books, loafing and doing some crochet. Been nice to not have to work or rush around. The weather has been crappy. The ice has been evil, makes the roads crappy to drive on. Luckily I haven’t really had to go anywhere. Well, done some travelling but has been local.
I made some slime which was really fun. Been a long time since I made any. I really love playing with slime. You can buy it, but there is something about making your own that is more gratifying. It is nice to be able to make it the textures and colors that suit your preferences.
This one is made with the glitter glue and I didn’t add anything to change the color.
This one is clear glue that I dyed and added glitter to.
I’ve given away some of the slime to others that I think will enjoy them as much as I do. I made 6 batches and don’t really need 6 of them. Sharing them is part of the fun.
Spent time over at my parent’s house yesterday. It was nice to spend some time with them since it has been quite a while since I have. They all appear to be doing well. I made plans with Mom to go to a paint night the beginning of next month which I think will be a lot of fun. I’ve never gone to one. Painting is something that both my Mom and I enjoy so I think it will be fun for both of us.
Dragon’s birthday is coming up and we are planning to have her dinner tonight. It is weird to think that she will be 18 at the end of this month. The time really flies by once you have a kid. Seems like yesterday that I was holding her in my arms and rocking her to sleep. I am so proud of the person that she has become and I am excited to see all the things that she will do in her future. I am confident that she is ready to go out into the world and that she will be successful in all that she decides to do.
I am hoping to get my hair cut and dyed over my vacation. It means going to a new person which I am never very excited about, but the person I had been going to has moved. And I’ve reached the point that I really don’t want to do it myself any more. It’s a way to spoil myself a little.
I’ve been able to spend some time doing things with Dragon and Monkey which has been wonderful. We’ve played video games together which was really fun. We’ve been playing story telling style video games where you play it like a choose your own adventure book. I miss those. I loved reading them when I was a kid. Anyone else remember them?
I hope that all of you are doing well!
