New play fort for Mo. A blanket and three sections of play yard folded into an open ended square. So easy and so fun.

Made some peanut butter cookies and dressed them up with candy melts. Our new upstairs neighbors (three college students) were thrilled to get some of these!

Little Miss was constantly telling me 'tert' (hurt) when she got in her high chair. Turns out the vinyl of the seat was cracking in places and scratching or poking her. So, I taped the cracks over with packing tape. Little Miss likes to pick at this tape. So, I took it one step further. Today, after re-taping the cracks, Little Miss's high chair went from this...

 ...To this! I sewed a washable flannel cover for the seat pad out of her old baby blankets.

Today's lunch:

Lazy Sushi!

1 can tuna
1 Tbsp mayo
1 tsp soy sauce
1 tsp sesame seeds
1 nori sheet (or 2 hand roll size sheets), torn into small pieces
10 buttery round crackers

Mix it all together and enjoy on crackers!

I think it's time for a new knit and crochet tools pouch.

Well, I finally bit the bullet and cleaned out my old polishes. I used to have almost three times this much. Some were over 15 years old! It really didn't do me any good to keep the old ones anyway. The quality and staying power goes downhill as they age.

That's my girl. All into nail polish. She's got them lined up on the floor and the counter, lol.

OMG, ahahahahaha!

Need input. Would you be more likely to buy something in this style as a rug or a blanket?

Here's my beautiful baby tomato plant. I got two of them free at the city library. One died. =(  But, this one is flourishing! Now how do I care for it when the weather gets cold?

Good morning. =) Today we're going to the doctor for Mo's 18 month checkup.

Little Miss has gotten about 30 minutes of entertainment from this knitting magazine... And she's not showing any signs of putting it down.

Baby in a basket, anyone?

Popsicle sock #5 knit for my dear friend Christy!
