Activites of Friday and Saturday morning
I took the garbage out, but then I gave my wonderful neighbors some of the AWESOME bread that Martha (a fabulous wife of one of my husband's soldiers) brought me. (I am totally into bread at the moment. Sharon, whose lovely face is pictured below gave me about 30 pounds of hard red winter wheat...it is a long and wonderful story about where it came from and I will tell you at another time since I am here to chat about bags). I called Martha to tell her that I had a treat for her, so she came to collect her 15 pounds of the raw wheat.
Anyway, 2200 rolls around. The Curtis household is mostly asleep. The Smith household is also mostly asleep, but Brian and Sharon are up watering their flowers and I wanted to share the awesome bread with them, so I trotted over with Stanley since he is pretty much always with me. And Sharon showed me what she and her boys had rescued from the garbage at the pool. They had saved 2 Life Guard umbrellas! There was nothing at all wrong with the umbrellas either. Crazy? No fading or holes, I wonder why they tossed them out? Oh well. Their loss is our gain! Anyway she wanted to know if I wanted to make some bags out of them. Heck Yeah I do! Not only that, she also gave me one of her husbands old camping tents (quite old, like from the 1950's - which for a person is not old, but for a tent it is.).
I have one more bag to make for Jill, but after that I have enough material to make a couple more giant pool bags. If you want one let me know!
Have a happy Sunday!
