Weekend Instagrammed

On Friday, we wrapped up another week at Swim Kids, and I got crafty with my glue gun and my Cape Cod rock collection.

Friday night, Daphne got to sleep in the attic teepee.  I wish I had a teepee.  I don't really fit in Daphne's very well.

On Saturday, Kev and Daphne went to the water park and I worked at the Finch.  It was busy and I forgot to bring any food.  But two nice customers from Maryland brought me a cup of Lightfoot crab bisque, so I got to eat after all!  Can you see that pile of fat quarters?  I cut fat quarters all day long.  I'm getting good at cutting fat quarters.

On Sunday, we went to brunch at Market Table Bistro and went to a family pottery class to make bowls.  I made a yarn bowl...see, it has a hole in it that your yarn goes through.  Plus, I put a bird on it.

Daphne and Kevin made bowls, too.  It was fun.  I would like to make bowls and other pottery things more often.  Daphne said she wants to be a potter.

I think Kev had a good time, too, although he got made fun of for being a perfectionist about his bowl, and the teacher asked if he is an engineer.  Which, of course, he is.  

We each made two bowls.  We get to keep one, and the other is donated to the Empty Bowls program, which is very cool.  

Which brings us to today, which is Monday.  I dropped Daphne and her friend Ruby at camp this morning and went immediately to Shoes to sit ALONE and drink coffee LEISURELY.  This is the first day I've had without a sidekick since school got out last month.  And I refuse to feel guilty for enjoying the heck out of it.  Believe me, Daphne needs a break from ME just as much as I need a break from being Mommy all day.  It will be good for both of us.  I am hoping that my battery will be recharged by the end of the week.  I also hope there will be some sewing.  Maybe tomorrow.

Kev is the one who REALLY needs a break, but he isn't going to get one for a while.  Stress is bad for people.  


Well, time to go do something productive.  Or maybe take a quick nap before camp pick-up...

Christmas tree lights in the top of the teepee: Hey! That's clever. Good lighting idea.

You're a creative bunch.
