The cold weather has definitely arrived this week and our satellite TV has officially cut (just couldn’t stomach that bill). So it seems that we need to find a few more indoor activities. I picked up a full tray of assorted pony beads at the thrift store this past weekend for $3 and they have already provided a ton of enjoyment and entertainment. They beaded for nearly an hour. The funniest part was that little Lauren sat at the table the whole time “beading,” after quite some time I realized that she didn’t even have one bead on her string. She wouldn’t let me help her but was content to “bead” the entire time. Oh how I love focussed quiet activities! These are rare in our home.
