Oh, what I can do with SUPER-GLUE!

In the mall a few days ago, David saw a large "Lightening McQueen" (Disney/Pixar movie) backpack. If you know my son, you know that he is obsessed with all things cars. Unfortunately, the backpack was too large for him, and a little too expensive for us--beside the fact that he already had a new little black backpack ($6 Walmart bargain!).

Fortunately, this morning I was able to find some inexpensive craft pieces (meant to make magnets) for a few dollars that I was able to super-glue to his backpack. (Though, who knows how long it will last!) I also put his name on the top with iron-ons. I'm undecided though, if I should have done that. Is it a security risk? What do you think? Posted by Picasa

Big, fluffy,, not Belgian Waffles

The temperature is in the teens-to-20's today. About an hour ago the snow started to fall. It is one of those storms of neverending flurries of giant snowflakes, which are already covering most of the previously bare ground. I hope that it sticks to everything! There is nothing like stepping out into a completely fresh snow-covered world.

It's the type of day to curl up in a quilt with a nice cup of hot chocolate and watch the soothing snowflakes fall. I've been doing a bit of that--sans hot chocolate. But now, I've got to get back to the laundry...and that's OK.
