Sometimes I Wonder.........

Yes, Sometimes I wonder if I have a screw or 2 loose. 
We had a relatively nice weekend here.
Saturday I did housework and grandson J came over in the afternoon and spent the night, as usual. Hubby had a friend over in the evening to watch the Badger game. He made brats and hamburgers on the grill and opened a can of cooking for me. *smile*
when he was at the grocery store to get what he wanted he picked up 2 packages of hot dog buns and no hamburger buns. We can make do.
we only had a tiny bit of catsup left in the container, hubby added some water to stretch it out and make enough for one more burger. 
I do 95% of the grocery shopping and use catsup very sparingly so wasn't aware that we were almost out. Now that summer is on the way (I hope) I will have to stock up.  It's on my very long grocery list that is next to my long to-do list.

Grandson J remembered the "Cool Canopy" he saw in my binder of craft ideas and he wanted to make one.... the snow has melted so we were able to get into the shed to get the hula hoops.
(He wanted to make this months ago.)
we attempted to make one. 
The hula hoop is suppose to hang from a hook....there is a hook on the ceiling in our small extra bedroom, but it's over the vanity table so I came up with this idea. It sorta worked, but, even though the fabric we used was light, the hula hoop still sagged. I didn't want to hang it from the ceiling fan. Or should I put another hook in the ceiling? ....the room has to redone anyway. I wish hubby was as into the grands as I am.
Before we came in to make the canopy we made up some games and played outside with the hula hoops. It felt good to be outside in the sunshine.
Today I have to straighten up the kitchen and living room (how did the hula hoops end up in there?), take care of the dreaded grocery shopping, and have the squishy mammogram done.
At least tonight should be fun. 
I volunteered to have a shaker card class here. A good friend of mine is a Stampin' Up demonstrator and......
It should be fun!
Come back later to see what we made!!!


  1. I am going to have a long stock up list when I get back home, too. That turned out very cute for your grandson. I would probably put the hook in the ceiling-just make sure you hit the stud. Get a white one and you will never even notice it.
    Have fun stamping- xo Diana

  2. It's so hard to remember everything isn't it and those never ending to do lists are always staring us in the face. The tent you made for the grandson is cool. I would probably just put a hook in the ceiling. I'm sure it will get used often. You are a good grandma and I bet your grands just love you. I can't wait to have grandchildren...:) Have fun making cards...sounds fun!

    Blessings, Vicky

  3. Seeing your g.son's canapy...made me think of all the forts my daughter would make from their blankets and the couch cushions. I miss those days. Blessings to you and your family, xoxo,Susie

  4. I love your canopy. I was always into "tents." When I was a kid I would make them out of brush or blankets or whatever I could find...indoors and out! When my kids were little I would make them for them. Funny how I like tents but never had a real one until two years ago. I would never think of going camping or sleeping in one either.

  5. I think a screw loose here or there can be a good thing. Keeps it all very interesting. The only thing I think catsup is good for is french fries :)
