Tidbit: tar gel and Mama time

Between dropping the kids off at youth group, and seeing my Mama, I stopped off at Daniel Smith, and bought myself some Golden clear Tar Gel, some sepia walnut ink, and a teensy-weensy skinny brush. I am so bad. I don't want to wait to play with these new "toys", but tomorrow is our all-day piano lesson day, so I do have to wait. Sigh.

My time with my Mama was spent plucking her chin hairs (don't laugh! Someday *I* may be old and blind and need my Girl to do this for me!), and setting up her fancy-dancy new books on tape system (through the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library). Her first selection: Nathaniel Hawthorne's House With the Seven Gables. I hope she likes it. It was a great visit, and she seems to be doing well. I love her so totally, I am so blessed to be able to spend time with her and do things with/for her.

Okay, gotta get up very early, so it is off to bed with me- the whole big bed, all to myself, sans snoring. I love my man, but could do without the snoring.

There is a special place in heaven for you for plucking chin hairs. I hope I can convince one of my boys to do this for me when I need it.

I don't know- the thought of it freaks the Boy out- but the Girl already knows she will be doing mine- it's all about the good Karma, ya' know? Funny thing- I really don't mind at all.

What a wonderful daughter and human you are. I am so delighted to see the lovely relationship the two of you have.

Thanks for sharing,
