Heather called Friday night to see if we wanted to do something fun with the girls on Saturday. We thought about several options but since Daddy had to go work on the apartments for a few hours we decided on something close. We picked PerryDell Farm. We had never been there before and the girls had never been close to moos.
This dairy is family owned and operated. It was bought in 1923 by Howard Perry. It was taken over by his two sons, George and Roger, who started bottling their milk. It is now run by George’s 3 sons. All the family pitches in on the farm and it supports 4 families. For more information follow the link below.
They also have kits they are handing out for you to make for your first responders.
I didn’t have the 1/4 elastic but I did have some small round elastic I used. David said it does hurt your ears if you have to wear them too long. I could have made ties but didn’t think that made the mask tight enough.
The 1/4 elastic is out of stock a lot of places. I did just find a store on ETSY that said they would get it mailed in 2 to 5 days. I will see if it comes that soon.
Anyway this is what they look like finished.
We kept one each for us and took the rest over to my daughter Heather;s, house. She is still working so she needs more than one. I think she should change it everyday. Then all you have to do is throw them into washer and dryer.
Sarah, my other daughter, found 3 packages of 1/4 inch elastic at her house. She is mailing it across the country for me to make masks for all of them.
Our local hospital and clinics are now accepting homemade masks. They posted the pattern, so I will be starting on them.
Heather ordered some material from an ETSY store, so we have plenty of material. I guess I will start with ties until I get more elastic.
I am so far behind in my blogging that I decided today is the day I need to catch up, so here we go starting with Christmas.
This is our granddaughter’s second Christmas they are 22 months old this year. They are so much more into it than last year. In fact, last year there was so much family gathered for their first Christmas they had to nap in between present opening.
Of course we have to start out with the decorating of the tree.
It has been a crazy last couple weeks. Dan and David went back to Edmonton, Canada to retrieve the rest of our stuff. Jim flew into Edmonton to meet them and help load the trailer once again. They made it back in 9 days. They left in the snow and seemed to take it with them because we have not had any since then.
While the men were away the girls played. Bekka and Kate made their first Christmas cookies.
I know I have been gone for quite awhile but it was due to surgery on my right hand. Do you know how hard it is to type with the pecking style? I was taught on an huge electric typewriter with no letters on the keys, so this causes problems for me when I can only type with a finger. This means I have to look at the keys because I am not sure where the letters are when I have to do it that way. Anyway I got my cast off and am supposed to start working my hand and wrist. What better way to do that than to blog!
Well if I haven’t said anything we are moving to York, Pennsylvania with my daughter, Heather, and her family. Heather got a great job down there and is taking us with them because we help with the twins or is it because they sold our house? Either way we get to go.
