[added Friday: Sweet little daisy bag up at etsy now, and another coming during afternoon nap time.]
What I did on my summer vacation:
3. I did not see any bears, but I did see lots of other wildlife.
I saw an osprey, a bald eagle, 2 wolves, multiple ground squirrels (one who drew blood on my toe hoping for my turkey sandwich), marmots, mountain goats, big horn sheep, buffalo, elk, and and a camel. Seriously. I saw a camel. In South Dakota. Yay, God, for making so many amazing animals and for not letting any of them kill us on this trip. We came close, particularly with the buffalo, but we were gracefully spared. Thank you.
Whilst unpacking (ok, so I was knitting in the basement while Curt put our camping gear away…and then he got into reorganizing the basement shelves…and so I moved in to ‘director’ mode…still in my chair…still knitting)- so yes…whilst unpacking, I came across a few things that I need to talk to you about. Before continuing, please promise to love me forever.
Curt’s old tonka toys and legos (this is good)
my toy German baby pram and grandmother’s china (also good)
my gameboy (which still works and I still rule)
my homemade gameboy case (thanks, mom)
2 tetris games (I guess I really did steal yours back in 1989, Danny.)
1 super mario brothers game (definitely mine)
my box of hundreds (yes) of Babysitter’s Club and Sweet Valley Twins & Sweet Valley High ‘novels’
a rubbermaid of my 3 Cabbage Patch dolls and 1 Koosa- a cat (I can’t believe I just said that.)
