Can you see the bubble above our house?
I think it was the bubbles that saved our day.
After some good (and bad) times with their friends yesterday,
it was time for my girls
to remember that they have each other.
Playing bubbles got them talking and loving again.
While they were bubbling and chatting away,
I was thrilled to discover two hydrangea blooms.
It has not been a good year for hydrangeas and us.
But perhaps we will have a late summer show after all.
Besides offering helpful 'friends advice',
Emily also helped Laura adjust her Ikea pillowcases
to the regular pillowslip size;
and while the sewing machine was out
I whipped up a tablecloth for the verandah.
(Since I had a clear dining table)
Inspired by my rare sewing activity,
I did some rare gardening activity near the back door,
where native violets were taking over,
and can now step outdoors with a full washing basket
without fear of slipping on wet leaves.
I even researched and booked a holiday for April.
So today was a pretty good Saturday, I reckon,
just being at home, relaxing,
and doing small but satisfying jobs.
Next up, a hamburger & chips TV dinner
with a girly movie,
not too late, because I'm determined
to get to church band practice on time for once.
What have you been doing on your Saturday?
