I do love my Thursday evenings, when I am absolutely allowed to ignore the pile of dirty dishes, the comic books all over the living room, and even the crumbs on the counter. I am allowed to have the first of the strawberries with cream, and to share them with my daughter. I just am, that's why. After work today, I successfully ignored each of these things in turn, and worked for hours on a special crafty project* instead. I am happy to say that it is almost done, and I am quite pleased with it so far. I am hoping this turns out to be a crafty weekend.
