Sunday was a lazy day here.  Neighbor Girl came over early.  We had planned on going to church but ended up not.  I’ve got to talk to mom to see if she minds if we take her to church with us.  I haven’t done that yet.  Some people are not church goers and don’t want their kids there…I have no idea how mom feels, so for now, it’s one step at a time.  No one was home at her house so if we left and went to church, she’d be alone..and I wasn’t going to do that.

We hung out instead.  She made us French Toast.  Remember a while ago she thought French Toast only came from a freezer.  Well now she knows where the recipe is and can make it all on her own.  I’m so impressed with her!

After that we put a charity quilt on the frame.


I taught her how to fill bobbins.  She loves doing it and I love that she loves doing it because then I don’t have to do it!!


After that I started working on my firemen benefit quilt but before I did that, I taught her how to do a Sudoku puzzle.  She took to that and loves doing them.  Here she is tackling puzzle number 3 of the day.Sunday-3

Neighbor Girls mom came home from work so she went home.  Going home has gotten much easier for her now that she knows she can come to my house every day.

Then Hubby and I ran over Craig and Kalissa’s.  Just as we got there Carver was having a bath.  I sure wish I would have had this bath contraption when my kiddos were little.

He was the happiest boy and just loves a bath.  He splashes now so mom is starting to think it’s time for a tub bath.  I don’t know.  I’d take the sink bath over laying over the tub any day.  Even if it includes some splashing.


What a cutie!!

From there, we ordered pizza for supper.

What a simple day but it was just what I needed.  If I could fill my life with more simple days I would be the happiest girl in the world.

  1. From what I understand the “sink” tub moves to the tub and is used in the tub for the next step in baths……

  2. Well, Ellie said everything I was going to say, so ditto! You are so thoughtful to talk to her mother first. I don’t understand people’s reluctance to let their children go to church but I think it almost always has to do with a negative church experience in the parents childhood. Thank you for taking loving care of Neighbor Girl. Please let us know how this goes. You and your husband will most likely hold a bigger part of her cherished childhood memories than you will ever know.

  3. I so agree about the bathtub for the wee ones. I think you are quite the friend for GND as well as her Mom. A working Mom doesn’t always have the luxury of choices between home and paycheck. Well done. I like that chrity quilt, bright and cheery.

    There are a lot of people up here in Canada that have this cold. I am one of them and is it a doozie. My head is so stuffed and I have tried everything to get it unstuffed but nothing has seemed to work very well. I guess time will be the best cure. Love your quilt and that little grandson is sure a sweetheart.

  5. Carver is so cute! My sister took pics of her bathing the kids in the kitchen sink with a tub! Great memories! I love that you and hubby have taken neighbor girl under your wing!! Bless you Jo! I think my favorite posts are of the neighbor girl and just ordinary days in your life! Don’t get me wrong, I still like reading about your quilts! I did buy the magazine with your latest quilt and I even had the tool needed to make it!!! I will get to it some day!!!
