A really sweet friend gave me all these buttons! It took the kids and I hours this afternoon to separate them by colors. I usually have a few buttons on hand, ten or so, but this is thousands! I will probably never need to buy buttons again. In addition, she gave me scads of fabric, old quilting magazines and quilting books. I separated it all over the weekend and will be sharing most of it with my quilty friends. Maybe even you! You know I love to share. Plus, there's only so much fabric one person can sew. Must be what she was thinking too. So nice of her to think of me though.
Yesterday we had these huge plans to go to the nearest "big city." That would be Hays, an hour and a half east of here, population 35,000 last I heard. They have the Sternberg Museum, a regionally famous dinosaur and natural history museum. When we got there, Nathan was shivering despite the 50 + degree weather. He sluggishly made it through the museum. Then we went out to eat and he laid on Todd and slept. As soon as we got back to the car, he started throwing up. Thank you Lord, that it didn't happen in that busy restaurant. Can you imagine? But throw up in a car is so nasty. So we came back home instead of our plans of McDonalds playland and shopping. And he threw up all the way home and all afternoon and evening. Today he is much better but kind of just laying around. What a bummer for spring break. Wish I was somewhere warm!
