Day 64 – Be Creative!

“When you have nothing,” I said, “be creative.”

She stared at me.  I had no idea whether she was processing what I was saying, or if her thirteen-year-old mind was somewhere else.  Probably on anime.  She gathered her backpack, coat, and school computer.  Gave me a big, solemn hug. Trudged out the door.  I would not see her for a week.

A week later on Monday morning she was curled up on my sofa, reading a book.  Her mother is “essential personnel” — that means she stays with me on certain weekdays.  I put on the breakfast bacon and potatoes and took care of my morning internet posts.  After I was finished, I walked into the dining room to set the table.

And that’s when I found him.

That strange-looking creature made of latex and water.

Mr. Wibbles.

I sat down and laughed so hard I couldn’t breathe.  Finally, I said, “What is this?”

She peeked into the dining room and smiled.  “Oh!  That’s Mr. Wibbles!  I made him for you!”

“But, what is it?”

She smiled.  “Creativity.”

  1. Hey, that is great. Yesterday I tried to learn some Makramee, to be creative. Love it.
    Stay healthy, well & positive. Thank you, for your great support during this time

  2. I love it! 🙂 While we were cleaning this morning my little girl brought her favorite dresses out that no longer fit her. We learned how to make hair bows with the material- she’s so happy that she gets to reuse them 🙂

  3. That’s an awesome idea – thank you 🐺 Mr. Wibbles looks a bit chubby, but perfect 😂 That is a real Creativity! I was very tired yesterday and just slept for the whole day with my cat. Believe or not he (😺) can be also creative (in a cat -way ❤️) That’s why my late reply. Thank you for your lovely posts! Have a magical day today also 👍 🔮

  4. the cardboard boxes that arrive with the purchased items can be stiched or sticked together and decorated with colours or with that decorative paper that looks like wooden surface…yes! This is a good organiser for your small items and supplies that are here and there in each room

  5. I have to laugh at the synchronicity here. Lately, I discovered and have been fascinated with back flow incense and I made a few cones to try it out. The problem is that I don’t have a back flow incense burner… So I looked around my home for something that I might transform. It needed to be dark in color (to see the smoke), and nothing of other useful importance. I found a shell! My friend went shell gathering on the beach last Winter and she gifted me with several of them. The one I chose is an old, broken Conch shell, worn smooth and dark gray in color. It just happened to have a hole the right size right on top! So, I got creative. I found a sea urchin shell the right size with a hole that matched and a bottom broken enough to admit a good sized incense cone! I glued it to the Conch shell and it came out perfectly. After it’s dry, I will decorate it with some other small colorful shells and mount it on a round, shiny, black, ‘too-go’ container from my odds and ends collection. I may use two different size containers to make it stepped. The incense will flow down the steps and pool at the bottom. I just love the visual effects of this! It’s so much fun! ❤

  6. Lmao!!! I can’t!!!

    You should’ve known that was coming. She is YOUR granddaughter, after all. Lol! 😉
