Welcome Magic Carpet Riders! Looking for my One World One Heart Giveaway? Click here to go to my open house post and the giveaway!
OK so my post on "Bigger Questions" is NOT happening today. I'm just too distracted! My One World One Heart fellow participants are leading me all over the web and I'm loving it! Also, my Jessie girl has a cold so we have spent the past two days in the house. All the cool craft ideas are really helping my inquiry into distraction, although it would be nice if Jessie's interest could be held for more then 10 minutes per craft! The house is a disaster of glue, paper, paint, crayons, playdoh, stickers, stamps, piles of"insta snow, clay, and unique combinations of them all. Admittedly adding red paint in the insta snow made for at least 30 minutes of fun.
Not that "insta snow" is normally considered a craft but mixing it with paint was a nice little science experiment. It should be noted that salt will "melt" the stuff into a nice red puddle. The little inquiry (see I am still sort of on track!) into the suitcase I still didn't empty since Christmas netted a couple of good diversions in addition to the snow. Lest you think my slothfulness is totally out of control, I had emptied the suitcase of all the dirty clothes and thought rather then unpacking all the little stocking stuffers we had acquired I would save them for another day and today turned out to be the day! Unfortunately a bunch of chocolate marshmallow snowman and other assorted sweets were also in the bag. Not sure "feed a cold" intends chocolate but as dessert to some noodle soup I figure it wasn't so bad.
Peep in the Big Wide World (that cute red gal is Chirp -- Peep's best friend!) computer games but when she is sick I am much more lax on my digital entertainment restrictions. This being said she has also watched her "cat movie" (The Aristocats) and Bolt, both of which I also find enjoyable even after dozens of viewings!
Well it looks like Jessie is ready for our watercolor experiments. We have several types of paper and we are going to see what happens when we paint on each of them. I'll report back if anything interesting develops!
Next post: Another inquiry TBD
