Cheaper than the Zoo

Do you know what’s cheaper than the zoo? The pet store. No lines. No crowds. No overpriced concessions. No long car ride to get there and back. I probably enjoyed the reptiles, birds, ferrets, chinchillas, and rodents more than Amelia did, but she’s more and more observant by the day.The fish were a favorite.  … Continue reading Cheaper than the Zoo

I’ve never participated in a round robin quilt before, but the idea is fun: start with a square or strip for the center, then pass it around a group of quilters, each adding to it (borders or blocks or whatever they want) and passing it on to the next person each month, until it makes… Continue reading Round Robin Quilt: Round 3

Reading aloud to my baby is something I’ve looked forward to for a long time, so Amelia has been enjoying… Continue reading Basket of Books: 6 Months Old

Alabama Adventures

Another edition of Alabama Adventures! I won’t be at home forever, and Amelia won’t be a baby forever, so in the meantime I’m super lucky to be flexible enough to visit my parents for a break in the routine.

Flower Fix

We wrapped up another weeklong visit to Alabama over the weekend, and had to say goodbye to my parents on Easter. I hate goodbyes! Especially after a week of strong coffee, homemade meals, pond views, shopping, and baby smiles; and especially when it’s raining and Amelia’s 6 month shots are due in a few hours.… Continue reading Flower Fix
