So this morning was one of those mornings that I generally read about on other people's blogs. You know, those blogs where all the craft projects turn out perfectly and they have really cool super huge gardens with no weeds. The birds sing, the sun shines, and no mommies find themselves wondering if it's ok to drink a margarita at 10am.
But look! Look at what I brought in from my garden this morning:
A whole basket full of beans, tomatoes, squash, and zucchini!! (bonus points for spotting the Transformer that Boba stuck in there) Booyah, I say. It was pretty much a magical experience. Right after I loaded it all into the basket an animated deer came out of the woods and we had this, like, mystical conversation about all that was wrong in the world and
Suffice it to say I'm pretty happy with the harvest this morning.
This last week has been a busy one filled with homemade popsicle eating:
And a bit of curtain sewing. I did not want to sew curtains At All. But I couldn't find them in the right color, so sew I did. Here's a bad shot of them:
These went into Short Pants's and Pita Pocket's room. (did you notice what I just typed?) We moved Pita Pocket out of our bedroom and into Short Pants's over the weekend. Oh happy day. No more being unable to use my own room after 8pm! I've rediscovered the luxury of reading in bed and am loving it. As an added bonus, since I lined the curtains with blackout material both boys are sleeping a bit later in the morning. Woo hoo!
While I was already on the curtain bandwagon, I finally broke down and hemmed a pair of twin sheets for our closet curtains. I'm not sure why it took me almost a year to get around to this, but it did:
We are decidedly not clean, organized closet people so it's a definate improvement to the bedroom. Next up will be curtains for the littles' closet (again, a project that should have been done a year ago) and new curtains for Boba's room. He's been seduced by blackout material.
Despite all the curtain sewing, I did find time to cut out my circles for the felt picture:
Hopefully sewing on that will begin in the next day or two. Boba has roped me into taking him and Bean to see "Transformers 2" tonight. They're back for the summer and full of ideas and places to go.
