  1. I have a new sewing machine!
  2. I haven't really sewed anything with it yet, but I did read the manual.
  3. We have harvested two ripe tomatoes now! That's good because it would be embarrassing to enter September without a single garden tomato.
  4. I baked my Nanny's World War II Ration Cake, and it turned out ... better than I imagined it would!
  5. I'm thinking of painting our kitchen. 
  6. Joe is saying so many new words! And word combinations! Mostly in the form of dictatorial commands, like, "Daddy! Outside!" That's pretty much a sentence, right? (Or two.)
  7. I have so much to blog about, but for some reason, am lacking the motivation to actually write blog posts ... 
  8. But I'm sure that will change soon.
  9. Because that's how it usually happens.
  10. More soon!


  1. Yay to all above, looking forward to more details :) Especially on cake and sewing machine.

  2. Gah, a new sewing machine always makes me feel like I must sew something totally MAGICAL! It is almost paralyzing. :)

  3. Congrats on your new machine! Exciting.
    PS. Wondering if painting is a typical symptom of summer? I feel like painting everything in our house lately.
