Sewing project: Chilton Trench

Work has been very busy lately, and it’s only going to get busier for the foreseeable future, so I decided to take this week off to get a bit of a mental break while I can. Of course, after I made the decision, hurricanes started barrelling towards us, which makes for a less than relaxing… Continue reading →

First day of 7th grade!

I don’t need to tell you, it sure looked different from years past! And their classrooms: They’re all in the same class this year to make life a bit easier and safer, if they do end up back in a real classroom. I guess we’ll see. And for reference, here they are on the first… Continue reading →

Random Tuesday post

I took part in a blogging workshop at work today, and now I am feeling inspired to post. So let’s see, what have we been up to? Haircuts! The boys finally got real haircuts (first time since February or so) and now I feel okay about getting one. We went to a salon owned by… Continue reading →

12 and 2/3

What are they up to right now? Enjoying their new room, even still keeping it neat! Playing Football Manager and Fortnite. Not doing enough summer reading. About to start reminding themselves what math is to prep for a placement test. Though surely keeping track of football team standings and scores and all that stuff is… Continue reading →

It’s pa-jammy, you know

Today I did my 200th Peloton ride, and I got a shout out! It was very exciting, except the instructor said “pee-why-jammy” and after posting about it on Facebook, I now realize everyone thinks it’s either pee-why-jammy or pie-jammy and it’s neither, it’s pa-jammy. Like pajamas! That’s the whole point! I guess spelling it the… Continue reading →

The boys’ updated room {ta-da!}

Finally! We are (almost, nearly) finished with the boys’ room makeover. Since there wasn’t going to be on a vacation this summer, I figured, why not spend that money on sometime more tangible. And the boys’ room was ripe for a makeover. The last time I did anything substantial to their room was 7 years… Continue reading →

Mid-month check in

I mean. It’s mid-July. Whatever. Time has no meaning. Certainly the date doesn’t. But here’s what we’ve been up to, anyway. We finally saw Grandee and Larry again this weekend. Steak was eaten. Yum. I made Oliver a Manchester City mask. No idea what’s going on with school. Since we can’t go on vacation, we… Continue reading →

Happy 4th: 151 months

I photographed and edited and posted this all from my phone. What can I say, I took Friday off work and didn’t want to go near my computer. Not a super exciting fourth for us. I made pita bread and cake though, and we used some old sparklers. So yay.

What’s up?

Same old, same old. Lots and lots of work. Sewing: Made myself another Artists Box Top out of the Liberty lawn I bought in May. Cotton lawn is by far my favorite fabric in the world. So light but crisp and easy to sew and doesn’t wrinkle horribly. Perfect for summer. Also I’m rather proud… Continue reading →
