"I guess we aren't very good at just showing up."
That's what Brandon told me
when he was making Phasers yesterday.
I guess not.
I'd told them last week,
"We aren't Star Trek fans.
I'm just going to make the girl's dresses and fix my shirt
and be done with it;
we're just going to show up."
But then it was decided that we really should
watch an episode,
so we wouldn't be totally clueless in the Annual Meeting.
I found Star Trek almost painful to sit through,
but everyone else wanted to watch another episode.
which was just fine,
since I was busy
sewing black fabric over all the guys' collars...
In our defense, though,
we don't do halloween, or even 'fall festivals'
Annual Meeting has sorta become their dress-up day.
I purposed to not buy anything,
and even used white thread instead of yellow
on the hems of my shirt.
Brandon used scraps of wood to make the Phasers
and they scrounged up nuts, bolts, various lids
and even a lightbulb
to finish them out.
As they were heading to bed
(at almost 11:00 - but not because of the crafting)
Josiah asked if I was making belts and holsters.
Hadn't planned on it....
But I did have some leftover fabric from another project.....
I'm so proud of your creativity and ingenuity.
Live long and prosper.
