All her, i.e., Teischan’s (13), work. All I have to do is get the ladder out, find the lasers and bring them out and tell her which extensions cords will suffice. She does the rest all on her own. This is her 3rd year (is it 4th) doing it all on her own. She now knows even how to replace fuses. It is GREAT. I do remember the days when I had to do this.

Don’t tell anyone. OK? We let her stay home today so that she could put up the lights! She is, AGAIN, going to be homeschooled, soon — so, … She wouldn’t have done anything at school. anyway. Today was a day scheduled for ‘goofing’.

Week later than last year — and you can blame it on henna! On Saturday we went to get the henna and on Sunday she spent much of the day mastering it.

More lights to put out. One laser that is not connected and I might have to get a few other ‘illuminations’. We really need a more POWERFUL laser — one that will burn holes in the siding.

Stay tuned. Three weeks to go and Teischan and I have not made an emergency run to Lowes to get more lights!

Today’s attempt, this time on mother’s hand.

What she did on her hands yesterday has now faded into a light, muted brown. I gather that it will darken with time. Wow. I had never paid attention to the process. Interesting. Well, you will learn all about it if you keep up with these posts. SMILE.

Very first attempt. We got her the henna yesterday.

Yesterday she drew these test patterns for future use.


She is doing the ‘Saturn’ patten on my hand for Thanksgiving!

What can I say?

And some folks wonder why I am not worried about her future — given her disinterest in academics. I think she will do OK. SMILE.

Well, brace yourself. Henna here we come.

Other KIds Doodle When They Are Bored, She Draws Mandalas On Her Hand — Part II.

This is how she came home on Monday, October 21, 2019. They had had a long 4.5-day weekend off and it was hard for her to go back to school. So, this is what she did to keep herself occupied.

She gets bored at school — gets bored a lot. But, unlike others she does not, any longer, doodle on her notebooks or folder covers.

Very impressive. Looks like henna or even a glove.

Kind of surprised that teachers haven’t noticed. But, that is also tells its own story.
