That's Some Diorama

A week or so ago I came home from work and Justin had an Important Paper on the table for me. It was a note about his 3rd grade Charlotte's Web diorama assignment. Interestingly, I had to sign an acknowledgement that I knew about the assignment and its due date. Which, depending on your assessment of the state of parental support of education, was either brilliant or sad.


So we got to work recreating the scene where Charlotte writes "SOME PIG" in the web. The problem: the sheep tells Wilbur he is going to get killed. (This is how Justin describes the scene in his TYPED (required) summary.) Since we didn't have a rat, we improvised with a small pig, a Sharpie, a pipe cleaner tail and two red painted eyes.
 
 
 
 
No farm kid-produced diorama of E.B. White's classic tale could be complete without REAL straw and a selection of plastic farm animals from his personal collection. Thanks to the crafting gene Justin inherited from me via his maternal retired teacher Grandma, he had plenty of pipe cleaners on hand to create fencing and a pitch fork.
 

 
We also used pipe cleaners to create the web and the SOME PIG letters. Justin had the all the right stuff on hand to make Charlotte look great. I happen to be especially proud of our weather vane.
 
Justin is taking his project to school tomorrow, and I'm confident he will earn a good grade. But just in case, we are sending in the paternal retired teacher Grandma to help him deliver it to the classroom.
 
She won't leave without the A+ for Justin, even if she has to make her own sign that says, "SOME DIORAMA."

Happily Ever After

Last weekend, in a brief moment of remote control ownership, I tuned into basic cable and saw a very disturbing show called "Rich Bride, Poor Bride." I watched two episodes and didn't see what I would call a "poor" bride--although actually, after they blew their budgets, both brides probably did end up poor. One couple spent about $75,000. They talked her out of having live peacocks at the reception.

That makes me think about my own much simpler but very nice-for-Farmersville wedding over a decade ago. In many ways it was a disaster.

We were engaged for a year and a half; we had plenty of time to plan but fates conspired against us.

By the time we got to the week of the wedding, we had buried two people on the guest list and paid our respects to a distant uncle. One of the people we lost was my husband's grandfather who died Monday, we had visitation Wednesday, funeral Thursday, rehearsal dinner Friday, wedding Saturday. How his grandmother handled it is beyo…

I Know What you Did Last Summer

Good gravy (I have taken up saying this since Husband doesn't curse and I was the only one to blame for our household's junior potty mouths), it's Fall. And I still haven't shown you the before/during/after pictures of my kitchen update.
Before: greenish "marble" laminate counters with a yellowed fluorescent light cover--only one bulb working.
Carbon dating and a close examination of the many knife cuts evident on the laminate surface have led scientists to believe these counter tops date to the early Aquarius period or possibly late Happy Days epoch.
To save money on the almost airline-like add-ons involved in having a big box home improvement chain do this project, we removed the counter tops ourselves. I use the term ourselves very loosely, of course, in that Husband did it.
I thought we were well-prepared. Fortunately, they did not have a box on their billing slip for We Pulled out the Oven and OMGOMGOMG!! The workers even kindly looked away while I frantical…

Weekend Plans Cut Short

I haven't been at my current job long enough yet, apparently, because people still make the mistake of asking me what are you doing this weekend? I say that it is a mistake to ask me about my weekend plans because that question is supposed to be followed with an ordinary answer like going to see a movie or yardwork.
But when you ask me about my weekend plans, you're likely to get an answer like this: well, we'll be pretty busy getting ready for our pig auction. Husband has to give haircuts to 100+ pigs.
Yes, you read that right. Pigs get haircuts. Husband is grooming them for the pig auction (we call it a sale) that we are having on Saturday. In the market for a pig? Head over here.
Pigs have short, coarse hair that in days of old was used to make brushes (and maybe still today). Husband and other pig farmers clip the hair of the pigs shorter to make them look more appealing to potential buyers, who in this case are 4-H kids and parents looking for a hog to take to the count…
