Songbird has been bugging me to take her to the fabric store as she wants to make a new satchel for herself and a couple of friends. Since we have Butterfly here, who needs downtime, I thought this might be the perfect indoor activity as I know she has some sewing experience also. So yesterday we made a trip to the local fabric place and the girls picked out their materials. Today they actually spent the morning working on them. You know, the hard part - the pattern and material cutting.
All that hard work deserved a reward afterwords. So, they picked the usual teenage past time of walking around the mall. This almost turned tragic when Songbirds fingers got slammed into the van door...but it turned out to me a mash, not a break, and it wasn't enough to stop her still wanting to cruise the mall. So glad.
When they had their fill of mall madness, we headed out to Yellow Springs and Youngs Jersey Dairy. They have a restaurant we wanted to try...and then the ice cream. Oh the ice cream. So we had a nice little dinner and then ice cream (and I had a butterscotch shake that was heavenly) and walked around the dairy. We watched a video on how they make their cheese that was really cool. Did you know that after they press out all the whey they put the cheese in a salt water bath? I didn't know that.
So we came home with fat, full bellies and chilled. I even snuck off to bed early since I still hadn't caught up from my two sleepless nights of camping with the scouts.
What adventures will Wednesday bring?
