Days 290 and 291

     I had the best day yesterday.  It was my parent conference day.  We are provided with a substitute teacher so that we can conference all day.  My conferences started at 7:15 and went until 4.  Long day - but there were several large gaps.  During which I got to work on plans so I have less to do this weekend.  Yeah!  I love meeting and talking with my parents.  So yesterday was a lot of fun.  Then my very last conference of the day came in.  She is a very sweet and young mom.  She brought her boyfriend with her - a handsome young man.  He sat down and she said this is J's best friend, Skylar.  I immediately turned to him and said his last name!  He was one of my kids.  I so remember that kiddo.  He was a beautiful child, long white blonde hair and huge blue eyes.  He was also quite a "critter", but I loved him.  Anyway, it was so much fun to see him and get to visit.  He has become such a nice person, even wanting to know what he could do to help J with her homework and such.  It always makes me feel so good to see my kids. 
     I worked on day 290 while supper cooked.  It is for Diane Clancy's challenge.  I used the tangles lap, puf, and zanella.  I like how they all seem to share commonalities and work together well.  Fun!
      Square One challenge (Facebook) wanted us to use the tangle nymph.  It seems - at least to me - to start and work from one of my favorites, nzeppel.  I am not sure this is exactly correct, but I like it.
I think if the challenge did not have to be in black and white, I might color it.  Lots of soft colored flowers and a early morning sunrise.  Oh well, if you would just please imagine those colors in your mind.   There!  See what I mean?  This was day 291.
     I hope you are having a wonderfully blessed day!  I love hearing your comments and thank you for stopping by my corner of the world.
