I recently attended a day-long seminar that involved sitting in a chair for eight hours. I got several inches of this sweater done that day. The seminar was on global economics, so maybe when this baby grows up, she or he will be an economist!
Here's a knitting tip for all of you knitters out there. I keep my center-pull balls of yarn from falling apart by wrapping them in those nylon footies from shoe stores. Clean footies. Never used.

A plump little pincushion! I'm basically the world's worst seamstress, so this was a huge accomplishment for me. It was nice to be on the "audience" side of a library program for a change, too.
I'm in love. Expect many pincushions for future birthday and Christmas gifts!

There it is! It's a combination of spinach, lettuce, and three herbs. I'm mainly excited for the spinach so I can make palak paneer again.
The other garden box will be getting tomato plants and possibly some other surprises. I don't have much of a green thumb, so we're starting small and hoping for better results than last year.

I'll let you know how shop set-up goes! I better take some more pictures and invest in some padded envelopes to mail all of the books I'm going to sell!
Note to family members: Please calm down. Everything going in my etsy shop is from book sales, yard sales, and thrift stores, not from Mom's house.

He's a world-class shoveler.
He loves his family (that's his grandma Jeanette at an outdoor fish fry).
He likes my friends. Or at least he pretends to!
He's a great cook... especially over the campfire.
He puts up with my ridiculous hobbies (like making mattresses for Fisher Price Little People).
He picks berries with me in the fall.
He makes garage sale signs for me, even when he would rather be sleeping.
