It has been a busy day (and yesterday!). Today was our Girl Scout Thinking Day. Our Troop did Australia and I missed that we needed a flag - so was busy making one with some fabric yesterday.
It came out ok.
Then there was the board to do, and finish up our boomerang swaps - which we needed 30 more that I cut out yesterday in the car line. Emily helped color those as the rest of the troop had already done 160 of them on Monday night. I added the pins last night while watching National Treasure. My co-leader has a friend who's hubby is from Australia. They lent us a bunch of things including the boomerang to display at our booth. The girls had Fairy Bread as their snack 2 weeks ago and Anzac biscuits (cookies) this past week. Did you know that the measurement are a little different between the USA and Australia? 1Tablespoon in US is 15 ml but it is 20 ml in Australia! Their cup measurement is a little different too. I did not know that! The girls had a great time and we learned a bunch of neat little facts about Australia.
Emily has been wanting a Fitbit. I have one and and tried different ones through the years. I got the new Change 2 for Christmas as my Alta was not keeping the charge after a couple of years. I found a knock off for her on Amazon for $26 that arrived today. She charged it, then agreed to go for a walk at the trail head with me to test it out. 6,000 + steps later she was a happy camper and I hit my 10,000 goal for the day!
Time to relax with some stitching. Dinner later (we ate lunch late - after 2) will be the leftover home made Chinese from last night - a chicken and veggie lo mein and a Thai me you'll like it that Aidan has been wanting to make for about a week - minus the hot pepper and basil.
Emily also got to visit Petco and see a kitten out of the cage. We have been walking over to visit the kittens while Aidan has his guitar lesson on Thursdays. They are in cages with a dark screen so it is very difficult to see the kittens. I had told her someone is there on Saturdays and we might have time to hold and see one of them. She played with Kachina in a play area for a while. No, she did not come home with us. We still have 2.. Maxie cat is holding on but is not eating and very frail. She sleeps a lot but does not appear to be in pain.
One kid is with Grandma overnight so I expect a quiet evening of stitching. Linking up with the RSC Challenge.
