Before and after church Malachi and Grandpa worked on a Lego model of one of the concepts for the new robot. Then, a quick lunch and they were off to Muncie to the brainstorming session. Malachi himself presented the idea to the group before rejoining his parents.
Robot build season is off to a good start. Monday Mike had to assign tasks for building prototypes. The team has a blog to inform the rest of us of the progress.
Jessica and I went to Monday Night Meal and on the way there we stopped by Chef-son's studio to see his practice piece.
The gazelle was already a week old and the horns were drooping. Anybody explain how ice can bend?
BTW, his competition piece won a second place!
At the dinner I got to see and hold Zion. He's growing so fast!
My great accomplishment for the week was to thoroughly clean and scrub the wood floor. It is among my most hated chores, along with cleaning the oven. OK, maybe a few other housekeeping tasks as well. After they're done, however, I always ask myself why I don't do them more often.
Brutus, the cat, enjoys the shiny spotless look and feel too.
Wednesday I visited with Dad and Mother and spent the night in Winona Lake.
Dad doesn't say much anymore, but he sure lights up when he sees me.
I spent the night and tackled another all-morning cleaning job at Mother's--the cabinets under two sinks and the fridge. I decided that going through an area, cleaning and ridding, is a good use of my time when I go up for a day. And I'm convinced it is easier to throw away someone else's things. Maybe we should do this for one another.
Mother gave me a small quilt, could be a wall hanging but I am enjoying it on the dining room table with a Klaytivity center piece.
Being a "robotics widow" is not all that bad. While he was gone all day today, I went out to lunch with my former colleague and friend. She introduced me to a new eatery in Fishers called El Bodegón that serves specialties from South America and Spain.
