Today was one of those days when I hardly got anything done that I had planned to when I got up this morning, but I have a sense that it wasn't wasted at all.
After the breakfast dishes had been washed and the morning work done Rosebud dug out a jumping rope and wanted to learn how to use it. I went out behind the house on a cement slab safely hidden from sight of any passing cars or neighbors and proceeded to demonstrate how fun jumping rope can be. We spent half of the forenoon taking turns. I finally got tired and hot and had to go indoors and cool off under the fan.
Rosebud went on practising and has greatly improved. She, unlike her mother, doesn't have any qualms of jumping in front of the house.
Once the mailman went I found the next disk in the series of Andy Griffith movies we have been enjoying. I popped it into the player and grabbed some hand sewing and we sat down to enjoy it. Once we were done with that I decided to tackle the pile of mending. Sunbeam remembered a dress that Rosebud used to wear and after making some alterations she had to try it out. To her the only proper way to try a dress out is to spin in circles.
