Fit for a King


Today I made a crown. I think sometimes being a mom means being part Imagin**r (those folks who come up with all the creative stuff for The Mouse. Nuff said, I don't want to be sued...). This particular piece of headgear is made up of a recycled Corn Flakes box, some fairly new gold foil paper I picked up at Office Depot because it looked cool, and some ribbon that most likely was purchased about 13 years ago. I'm sure you're not surprised to learn that I am the kind of person who hates to throw something away, because someday it might come in handy. In the end, it always does.

Now, you might be asking why I made a crown. Well, you never know just when you might need an elegant, yet lightweight, symbol of your regal-ness. Of course, if they rang my doorbell right now and begged me to become Empress of the Universe, I would, naturally, decline. After all, most Empresses done have time to knit, now do they? The real reason I made the crown is that Meital and some friends are performing a skit for their Bible class tomorrow. Meital wrote the script, and plays the part of King Saul.


Another thing Empresses don't have time to do is bake Cranberry-Raisin Oatmeal Cookies. These are a heck of a lot of work (there are 18 ingredients listed!), but they are worth it. Really a delicious, substantial cookie.

Hmmm, maybe once Meital's skit is done, I could crown myself Empress of Cookies. That would work.
