Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

We had some sun this weekend!
We've been about ready to build an arc. We got the wood, the hardware and all of the items necessary. We even had a little plastic roof for the tiny building in the middle of the arc. I mean, we were all set and started to build.
What a glorious arc it would be. As the rain would continue to pour we'd be in a comfy wooden hull with our little building on top, safe and dry. We'd float away with our family and pets. Seasick, we'd at least be prepared.
Then we were hit by the glorious sun.
Screw the arc!
We have sun!
Still, we should continue building this arc, surely the sun shining is a trick from fickle mother nature. Surely this is a joke and we would still need the arc. We continued to build and toil.
No playing until the arc is complete.
We must finish this.
At any time the skies could open up and buckets of water would pour down, drowning all who are not safely in their arc.
We did. We finished our arc.
Ummmm, right. That doesn't look like an arc. We had a problem. Somehow the sun affected our brains and the arc became this swing set type of a thing. I'm not sure how it happened. I guess when you buy arc parts but don't have instructions, anything at all can happen. The queen child of the house seems to be much happier with this than with the idea of an arc.
It rained overnight Saturday and during a BBQ we had on Sunday but they all passed quick enough to make us think the swing set/not an arc was still ok. Yesterday was another story and today it's overcast as is becoming the norm. I wonder if that swing set will float?
