warm & flaky

and definitely almost gone.
this posting once a week thing does not work out does it.

i just got a blackberry.

that should help.

or so i hope.

the past few days have been catch up.

cleaning up email.

mailing packages.

making dresses.

decorating for fall.

apple picking.

apple pies.

spending time with my love.

all the things that make you thankful really. and that is what this time of year is about right.

all this harvesting makes me think that the pilgrams were onto something with this giving thanks thing. it really seems to work out for everyone.

the next few weeks will be busy ones.

i am hoping that that will prompt me to be a little more back on track. i do better when i am busy. i am way more productive.

the part time job starts next week. super excited about that. i'll have a 2 year old playmate 2 days a week. and really, what is better than that?

just a little before i go

i have not had much time today.

mainly do to the fact that my love showed up on my doorstep approximately 5 hours earlier than expected.

a very welcome surprise.

and me...well, i was still in morning mode.

bed head. jammies. a little mascara from yesterday.

a little mortified.

he tried to capture the moment on film. thankfully not. unfortunately i don't have the evidence to show you. i'll let your imagination run wild though.

but like i said. a very welcome surprise.

what is even better is that yesterday by way of being inspired by inchmark i started a journal.

Writing down 5 things that happened that day.

i can't wait to write this one down.

mama + baby

one of my favorite little people is my goddaughter julianna.

she is sweet and bright and my heart just melts when i hear her say 'auntie.'

i think i am in trouble because this one. she makes it hard to say no.

but back to the point of this post.

this puzzle is from eeBoo via genius babies.

object of the game: match the mama with the baby.

how cool is that?

i think this is perfect for a very curious almost three year old. and really, who doesn't love baby animals.

maybe incorporate this with a trip to the petting zoo?

dare i say we have an adventure on our hands.

your message here

i've been finding lots of perspective lately. in places you wouldn't think to find it.

then this morning i came across this project.

full of rather ordinary, simple sentiments.

which really do mean the most.

no surprise that the creator is something's hiding in here.


and heartwarming.

and all together lovely.

today was filled with very good things and very hard moments.

conundrum eh?

+ a nice little part time job in the works
+ a few more rows on the knitting project
+ quality time with dear friends
+ sleeping beauty on DVD
+ homemade chicken soup

- this debate
- missing someone so much that it hurts [only 3 more days!]
- not getting some exercise in

complaining though?

not at all because the good far out weighs the bad.

hello knitters?

i'm sure you've heard about it by now.

and if you have not. quick. go now.

but make sure that you've got a solid 3 hours to pour over project after gorgeous project.

i wish this site had existed when i first started knitting. there are some great resources. not to mention that everyone is so dang friendly!

i got up this morning KNOWING that i NEEDED to find the perfect pattern for a dear friends upcoming baby shower.

i flipped through the pages of both my 3 ring binders filled with patterns to find that perfect.

no luck.

so i logged into my ravelry and viola! i am now staring at the most perfect lovely baby something that i know momma and baby will adore.

why all the secrecy on what i am about to knit? the sweet momma reads here and well i've got to keep it a little quiet. right?
