Don’t tell anyone but these were taken on November 1 – it was too dark last night.
Pardon our dust.
Ellie is Professor Minerva McGonagall and Beatrice is some kind of demon. The caution tape and extension cords are not just decoration, they’ve been working on the house for a couple weeks now!
Progress is messy. And noisy.
Not my personal best, but I enjoyed the pattern.
It took me almost two months to finish a bunny and two sweaters for a customer. Really unforgivable that it took so long. I’ve got plenty of reasons why this happened: too much Girl Scouts to work on, too much other stuff getting in the way, school, lots of different people coming in and out to work on the house, we’re still working to find our groove since moving, the project didn’t actually have a “I need it by” date.

You know how my Facebook page (wall? whatevs) is typically barren and filled with the sound of crickets? I started feeling kind of bad about that in spite of my working theory: social media ruins everything. So I made an instagram account that cross posts to Facebook.
Just me doing my part to make the world a better place with cat pictures.
Enjoying the porch.
Girl Scouts make the world a better place. We will change the world, not our purpose.
There are days when I miss Great Gran a very great deal.
More than usual.
I very much don’t like having too much to do. I also think my threshold for that is lower than a lot of people’s. I’m trying to figure out what activity from which to extricate myself – sadly, it can’t be litter boxes.
It’s the rainy mornings when I appreciate homeschooling the most. Not having to get out and suffer the car rider line is a personal blessing.
If you are also lingering over your coffee (because your child is still in bed), here’s a lol for you:
