I had a wonderful Valentine's / Family Day (in Alberta it's a provincial holiday) weekend. I went to the 'farm', to spend the long weekend watching 3 of my grandchildren while my son and DIL went skiing at Marmot Basin in Jasper National Park.
I had a few planned activities, as we would be together for 3 days. But for the most part it was to also let them just play, like making quilt forts in the living room. When I asked them what they were doing in there...their reply was they were waiting in their hunting box and watching their bear camera.
And a great sledding hill that their Dad made out of a few large round bales. It was a beautiful sunny day on Saturday with fresh snow, which made it perfect for the building of snowmen, for supersliders...and small dogs.
I did a round of mending; my son's calving jacket, a little barrel racers' favorite shirt, and a teddy bear who was loosing his stuffing.
I brought along my bag of blue strings and scraps and it was my youngest (6 years old) who loved making string blocks. "We" made 24 while I was there. I had brought the blue bag as I wanted to make a few more string blocks with their complimentary colour orange. I have a few ideas percolating about how they will be used, but I would still have a lot more to make...heck I have all year to work through a rainbow of colours over at SoScrappy and the RSC15.
pink this week belongs to those tender soft cheeks of my youngest granddaughter.
