A couple of kids

That’s me and Kevin – a couple of kids.

Instead of finishing up work on some newsletter stories I’m writing, I just spent the last 15 minutes in the kitchen with Kevin, melting crayon stubs in the microwave and making new crayons.

He came upstairs looking for a rubber band to hold together the pieces of PVC pipe that he found for me to use as molds. My previous attempts using foil haven’t been very successful.

So I had to try it out! 🙂

It was actually the most silly fun I’ve had in a little bit. Standing there next to my husband, deciding which color to melt next to form a new multi-colored crayon. Carefully pouring it into the mold.

We tried one with the crayon stubs put into the mold unmelted and then melted in the microwave and another one with the stubs melted separately then poured one on top of the other into mold #2.

Yeah, it’s the little things that thrill me. Now, on with work.
