For Washing Almost Anything

I got a new listing up on etsy.  Washcloths in new colors.  :0)
I'll get the tea tree oil soap up this weekend and hopefully a couple other things.  Let me know what you think!

If You Are Going To Name Your Kid Linus

You have to make him a blue blanket, even if he doesn't suck his thumb and no matter how long it takes you!

This Summer

Our very first watermelon!

Molly decided to give herself bangs. I tried to fix it with crappy sewing scissors!

This one is just funny! :0)
 That's pretty much what's been going on around here.  Garden is doing okay.  Kids are doing kid stuff.  Mom is trying to hold it together.  :0)

Some Days

Some days I feel sad and down for no real reason it seems.  Other days I feel free and floaty and dreamy and at peace.  But I keep thinking about seeds and plants. I think of the seeds that have evolved to catch the wind, like dandelions or those whirligig ones that come from some sort of tree.  Then I think maybe things are just meant to be this way.  Maybe forests just get too crowded and the seeds are meant to float far away because if they fall to the ground the sun will never reach them.  

Maybe it's okay to let the wind carry you far, far away from the forest. Maybe you are meant to find the wind when you are suffocating.

Just Sayin'

After countless Futurama episodes and that two hour long Monopoly game that of course did not get finished, I am so ready for school to start again.  :0)

After another week of drama (fevers, pee and other mishaps, broken desk chair, and teething), I am still on track.  Sort of.  The first batch of patchouli soap is just about done curing and I can't wait to take pictures of it for etsy.  Yay!  And I'm working on other stuff too.  I also bought some romaine lettuce seeds from an etsy shop called cubits. I'm really excited about it.  The weather has been mild this year so far (fingers crossed) and we've actually been getting food from the garden.  Imagine that.  Of course I won't plant the lettuce until the fall though. 

I'm also going to try and have a sewing lesson with Molly and we plan on making cookies.  :0)  

Lots of stuff coming soon.

No More Drama

*One hail storm that prevented us from hiding in the cellar and for a brief moment I thought we were all going to die. 

*One replaced back windshield on my car already scarred from the hail storm two years ago.  

*One ruined $200 swimming pool.
*One printer unexpectedly dead of old age.

*One kindergarten graduation.

*One swallowed tooth.

*One attempt to pull the baby monitor camera down from the wall by the cord. 

*Many, many fatigue and hormone induced mood swings.

Summer Vacation

Okay, I've still been playing Castleville.  Maybe one or two more trips to the Goodwill and a little more shifting around and my house won't be like hoarders anymore.  Not that it really ever was.  I mean, I'm just  a little messy.  It's not like I'm dirty. Ha. Ha. Anyway, Mike made some soap today and I'm working on a few things for etsy.  Molly's out of school though, and I know I'll have to keep her busy.  I think I might have to break down and find some kind of baby sitter.  I'm going crazy, little by little.  :0)
