Hi Everyone –
(If you are here for the Angles with Ease video – skip to the end of the post)
I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend and got to celebrate the holiday at least one of the days! We had Joel’s family over on the fourth and my family on Sunday. We enjoyed lots of good food and hanging out by the water. My family has lots of little kids, so we set up the giant slip and slide.
We take advantage of our hill by covering it in black plastic. We use a little olive oil and a slow running hose to slick up the plastic, then ride down on anything that will hold some air.
Rides down were rated for best wipe out or furthest distance.
Riding double helps with the distance.
We should have also rated them based on facial expressions . . .
I think Carter would have lost this one. He had absolutely no expression at all. I guess he prefered his ladybug floaty.
The giant slip and slide is probably one of my favorite things about the lake and it’s great to see the kids having so much fun.
One of my least favorite things about last week was shooting a video about my latest book and ruler. We did demos on the technique at market and had so many shop owners ask for a video on the demo. I put it off for over a month, until the last of the quilts were shipping out on trunk shows and I had to do it. I think I would prefer giving birth again, as at least there is an epidural for that. If we were able to edit the video, I think I wouldn’t have had such trouble with it. I knew I had to get it all in one take – so when the phone rings in the video, about 7/8ths of the way through, I just kept going. 15 takes was enough for me and I decided it was good enough!
Okay – enough babbling. If you want to watch the video, click here.
