I must say, I am grateful for Columbus on this day. He started something, intentional or otherwise, that resulted in our nation being what it is. How could I not be glad of that? A circuitous chain of events, but it ended up with the Pilgrims coming to this new land, and eventually we became a nation. So for what he started, I am glad that it ultimately resulted in our nation.
It was kind of an eventful weekend. I made it through the grocery store! A little slow, sure, but I made it. Actually, I think I overdid it, because I was kind of stiff and sore the next day, but my knee is almost completely healed. I’d say I’m probably at about 95%. Yay!
I did some crafty kinds of things with the kids.

|Can you tell what I used to make the pattern for the ghosts? LOL I got lots of giggles when I was tracing their feet.|
|I made the big spider a couple of years ago, but the kids loved it so it became a keeper.|
And check this out! After just a few weeks of school, the MiniNess left this message on the white board:
So I got what feels like lots of things accomplished, and I even managed to toss out some old stuff I’ll never use as well.
How was your weekend?
