Sorry 'bout that, y'all. I should be working, but I wanted to do a post real quick...
Anyway, what's up with this "flurry" business? (I mean, other than the snow we've been having on and off for a good portion of the past week...)
Well, Wednesday (I think it was) after a query to a friend and a enthusastic presentation, there was formed an thrilling plan for early May. We are planning on attending the Family Covenent Ministries conference in Missouri. This year's theme is WWII.
Apparently one of the customs is for attendees to wear period apparel for the theme's era. Anyway, littl' ol' excitable me went bonkers for the whole rest of the day--looking at hair mostly. I have been doing mock-40's hair for many years, but nothing serious. Katherine attempted "victory rolls" on me that afternoon...and well, I don't think we'll be doing that! I have too much hair and they were huge (even though the third attempt were the smallest and best looking). Katherine (our hair artist) is intending on trying the "fluffy-bangs" on me this afternoon. If they turn out well, I may put up a picture. (I decided the victory rolls were just not going to make it up here!) I think the only way we would get honest-to-goodness authentic hair styles would be to cut our hair--which not a one of us would even remotely consider.
Then we have been looking at clothes, clothes, and more clothes! (It's a whole lot of fun--I could pick a whole wardrobe amount of patterns I would like to have...) We kinda-sorta got started on that from yesterday's job--which was a full scale pulling out and photographing all of our patterns. That way we don't have to dig through them all, but can refer to a the photo-file. Nifty idea...It took a good portion of the day to do, but we got it all done! I tried to organize the patterns in the boxes according to era and size, but I don't necessarily know how great that aspect is going to work out.
Today we are playing something along the lines of "Furniture Musical Chairs". (I believe I mentioned this in my previous post.) Anyway, we got the desk from the office moved into the dining room here and I have all the drawers in but one (which needs to be gone through. I have scrap paper, books, and miscellany organized in a handy fashion; but I will have to find another place to put my video camera (and other film stuff like tripod and "the suitcase".)
I think I may need to help Mama move the buffet here in a minute...
