I figured out today why she insists on having water in her water table before she'll play with chalk -- wet chalk appears more intensely colored. I'm amazed I didn't figure this out earlier.
Sale cloth keeps calling my name; today I gave in to two yards of kelly green vinyl that I thought of clown props upon seeing it. It's going in the next package to my folks.
At some point, I would really like to have a desk or similar-height workstation to hold my computer again. I don't really miss the clearance-find desk I left at my parents', but the table I'm using now is so low I sit on a stepstool to use it and Laurel frequently pilfers the stool to use elsewhere. I suspect any change will have to wait until after we've seriously boogied the dining room, which I'd like to use for all the sewing stuff currently spread across a couple of rooms. I still don't know where I'd put my computer, though.
