Some days you just have stuff to do. Nothing to do with playing. I needed to change oil in the scoots and Joan had a sewing project she wanted to get done: we have been using place mats on the dining table in the Aspect, and she wants a fitted tablecloth. Today was the day.
After lunch out (yeah, that is our routine), I got my oil changing stuff out and went to work on the scoots. Not a big deal - they take less than a quart each. I look the oil over at each change - no shiny stuff from Joan's scoot, one very small fleck of metal from mine. They are good to go.
Joan had picked out fabric a while back, and went to work sewing while she made a roast for supper with the kids tonight; good multi-tasking. She drew out a sketch of what she wanted and fitted it in place when we got back after supper...
It is a pretty wood table, but it is nice to have something over that to protect the wood. It has two built-in cup holders. She double-stitched around those circles, then cut and fit the openings in place. It looks good and goes great with the rest of the earth-tone interior.
As usual, she made extra with supper - gives Steph and Dan leftovers to take for lunch. We are their "housewife" when we're here. Well, she is... I'm just the helper, usually by staying out of the way.
