On Turning 108
The invitation to the shower came in last week's mail. It was very cute. And it said to bring a gift from the category indicated on the enclosed slip. Which said something about "Bathe the baby -- bring shampoo, body wash, towel." People who are 108 don't need to be told what to give as a gift. I'm giving the quilt. Maybe he can lie on it after his bath.
Met at Sauder's and picked up some more pink for Dying Of Cute and a bolt of 108" unbleached muslin and then wandered into the bulk foods section where I bought some trail mix for Joe and some caraway and dill seeds for the bread he has taken to making. I also bought a couple of bags of Good 'N' Plenty type candy to take to the Upper School Director. She's been provoking me and my will power by offering M&Ms in her candy jar and I need to put a stop to that. I loathe licorice.
The intention is for this quilt to reside at Grandma Susan's house for when he comes to visit.
