The girls and I rode to the store tonight so they could pick out fabric for pants - I'm making Claire the Little Smarty Pants - Bermuda Shorts version. Jane wants lounge pants - not too wide-legged, though. I love it when they are in the mood for some hand-made clothes.....as they get older they don't as often want them. So I'm taking their interest and running with it!
My family (and I) leave Friday to backpack for 2 nights with my brother-in-law and our niece Jenn and her family. I haven't backpacked since college, when I went w/my then boyfriend, in the Grand Tetons. But I digress. I'm a bit nervous - we car camp often, where there's a cooler on hand, and an outhouse, and a source of water. Let me just be frank - I dread most having to poo in a hole in the ground. There, I've said it. I'll take an outhouse swarming with flies anyday - it's just this whole inhumane thing about digging a hole and doing your business and then burying it. INHUMANE, I said! And on that note, I bid you goodnight, and happy sewing, and enjoy your flush toilets this weekend.
