Friday night was my Pack meeting and our theme for the year is "Onward and upward".
We had six teams seeing which could build the highest tower... three teams of Tiger cubs, one of Wolves and Bears, one of Webelos, and one of Dads. At one time or another, each team was ahead.
If you are tempted to try this, I would advise using the larger marshmallows. Three tiers and a spire were about all those little ones could support.
Well, yeah ... but you are not built with marshmallows!
Today was bright and sunny and when I stepped outside to sweep the street, I was surprised to find it warmer outside than it was in the house. With the new buildings going up, we get only about ten minutes of sunshine coming in the diningroom window each day and slightly under twenty minutes in the livingroom. The sun does hit the greenhouse on the roof so I decided to take down the decorative lights outside and put them away in the storage area. Today, the door behaved a bit better and after five or six tries, went in place.
I actually had a good chunk of the day left to work on the gift runner.
I have finished a light gray binding. I had a choice between that and navy but I think the gray looks better with the rainbow border.
I decided to go with the Bible verse from Ecclesiastes, "To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven."
I have begun to quilt in the text using light gray thread.
The coming week has lots of activities lining up, so I am glad this task is on the way.
Oh look, my holiday runner is still on the coffee table ... maybe it needs to be washed and put away too. At least it doesn't have to go into THAT cupboard! Whew!
