Here are some happenings I like for this week:
1. My new pink shirt:
This is the only shirt I own with text! I'm fairly conservative with my wardrobe or maybe that should read casual. Anyway, I saw this shirt on Facebook in black and ordered it. It was quite an extravagance for me. I have been a fan of Willie Nelson for many years. His music soothes my soul. Country Music is not my favorite but he seems to cross over into jazz, pop, you name it. Unfortunately, the shirt does not fit or even come close. So far, I shortened the hem but I will have to alter the sleeves. I might even cut out the center and applique it onto a shirt I have that fits! Or even make a pillow!
2. Dyeing unusual Easter Eggs to keep the young guy interested in this tradition. My daughter and I were all set to color eggs but realized my 12 yr old grandson wasn't interested and would rather watch tv with the men. Until I suggested we could make "Monster Jam" eggs. Well he couldn't move fast enough to the table to help. Hysterically funny. Due to his Cerebral Palsy, there are few "toys" he has ever played with but recently went to Monster Jam with his dad and is hooked. So, I had a few stickers from an arena I built for him out of cardboard boxes and we stuck the stickers on the eggs. That led to plain stickers for some family members, fictictous names and sports heroes:
3.Building a Monster Jam arena for my grandson. I'm not usually this creative especially with cardboard boxes, but this was fun. There is a ramp and 2 boxes which are the side arenas. I just purchased party favors, and attached contact paper with washi tape to the boxes. He can pretend to have the trucks do their tricks in the middle of the "arena":
