I had quite a big box of things to drop off at the thrift store today. While I was there I browsed and was happy to find some great books. The one on the left, The Night before Christmas, has a hologram on almost every page. I knew the little man would love it and he did. We read it after he got home from school. I was thrilled to find the Susan Branch ( in absolutely perfect condition) . The book on the right has very nice illustrations and is destined for my collection.
I was looking for a copy of Kate Morton's The Distant Hours which I read recently ( library book), and wanted to own. Didn't find it but did find this one which I have read but want to reread ( 2.00).
I was tidying up today and came upon my chocolate molds. Went out to buy those chocolate melting wafers in white and also regular chocolate. After school the grands had fun making pumpkin and also leaf chocolates. Miss C. was focused and made little mess. The little man, on the other hand, was distracted by the molds we were not using. He did get his pumpkins made though.
See what a good job they did? Nice "marbling".
We're having some days of rain that mean no outside work. I've been doing some tidying up and hope to continue that all week.
What are you keeping busy with this week?
