I hate Daylight Savings Time. I woke up at 5:30 this morning and was excited because that wasn’t too bad. Lady Bird climbed in bed (which she does every morning if she isn’t already in there) and I petted her for a while. When I got up to feed them it was 6:45! I don’t […]
Last weekend, I attended Camping Skills Certification class. I am now allowed to take Girl Scouts camping. We’re going to start with a hike and some knot tying. Because baby steps. My main takeaway from the weekend was some really excellent camp cooking ideas. Like omelets cooked in a ziplock and cake in a Dutch […]
We’re all finally getting over whatever it was that we had. The coughs are the last things to go and the coughs are the WORST. Ellie has felt like playing again, she took her trunk apart so she could pack for Hogwarts. Packing for Hogwarts is one of William Henry’s favorite games. For whatever reason […]
My turn with the virus started yesterday evening. That’s not as awesome as it sounds. Gran and Pop are in town for an eye appointment (Gran) and left a whole bunch of groceries on the porch last night. I waved sadly from the window. I’m thinking of starting a cargo cult in their honor.
Here are the Valentines that Ellie made to mail to people. Here is the Valentine she made for me. It’s so big I had to assemble it and then I made a movie. Here is the Valentine I drew for Michael. And here is where we were on Valentine’s Day! (another video) It was super […]
I find the toys a little disturbing before they get put together.
Punxsutawney Phil says “more winter” but the yard says “Azalea time!”
Last week I was reading Ellie a poem in Carole’s blog post (because I do that: read stuff to my kid) and she noticed that Carole’s little word of the year was ‘peace.’ She thought that was awesome, that we should also have a little word of the year, and it wasn’t the end of […]
We’ve still got quite a few trees that were killed in one of the big storms a while back. They drop limbs every now and then and the woodpeckers enjoy them. Every now and then a regular-size storm pushes one down. Ellie made a surfer out of some of the pieces.
One young woman’s sign summed up the event for me, “I don’t usually do this but GEEZ.” In case you’re wondering about the Girl Scouts (I noticed some…hubbub), we’ve got a legacy of building leadership and advocacy.
“I have also decided to stick with love…Hate is too great a burden to bear.” -Martin Luther King, Jr.- This is actually a tiny fractured bit of the whole speech (“Where Do We Go From Here?”) given at the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in 1967. You can read the full transcript here.
Can you spot Betty?
Got milk? I’ve got cookies.
I will now take a moment to document the snowflake in my weather app: I’m pretty sure that all that icon really means is that it’s just going to be 32° while it’s raining, but the picture IS of a snowflake.
Ellie’s New Year’s Resolution is to fix a meal once a week. My New Year’s Resolution is post something to Yarn Miracle once a week. Anything. Stop laughing. This totally counts for week #1.
I hope everyone had a Crookshanks (or equivalent joy) in their stocking. Merry Christmas.
