Miss Me?

Well I missed several days now. I have been busy doing the day to day stuff that a typical mom of three would be doing. Cleaning, Cooking, Laundry, Being a Taxi Driver, and Working. I did make a bubble gum machine fish tank. I found the idea here. The only changes I made were finding a mirror to close up the bottom for .99 cents at Michaels and I used silicone sealant in a caulk gun from Lowes for $5.69. I also bought a green grassy thing for $1.99 from Petsmart. I already had some blue marbles for the bottom. Pete's mom had given us the gumball machine a few years ago and it had just been sitting around, so I am glad to have a special place for it now.

Another poem by my grandmother
To My Children
(This would be Joseph Lee Boyte Jr., James Monroe Boyte Sr., John Klennar Boyte Sr., and Sylvia Boyte Speight)

Bear things well, Be true and brave.
Have patience. Your honor save.
If you fall, be sure to rise,
Through rifted clouds, see sunny skies.
Have an aim that's strong and true.
Let no bad habit master you.

Dec. 1940
