Sand thingy

When I was younger, I was madly in love with these…

Remember them? They were these cool frames with sand (and water?) inside. You could turn them over and create new sand images, kind of like an hour glass, but not really. Okay, so nothing like an hour glass, but you get the point.

I had one. And I loved it. I played with it ALL. THE. TIME. But there was some sort of trick about them, that made them almost worthless after some time. They would eventually, and I’m not sure if it’s because too much or too little, air would be inside. There was a pin sized hole on the side that you had to let in? or let out? air. I was so young, that I totally don’t remember. And I’m not about to call Dad for the answer. Ugh!

Anyway, I was flipping through one of my catalogs that came in today’s mail, and GUESS WHAT I SAW!!!!

They have a LARGE one!!

I SO TOTALLY WANT THIS!! I don’t have any idea where I’d put it, and it would probably bug the hell out of RM#1 if I hung it on one of the living room walls, but it’s fabulous.

There will come a time when I have my own place again. Maybe I’ll look into buying one then. Until then, I’ll save a place on the wall of my imaginary future home.

Happy almost Friday, Readers. I’m so thrilled it’s the weekend. Fun plans with a girlfriend on Saturday, and then Sis comes home Saturday night. Fun weekend planned. Can’t wait to enjoy it.
