In the kitchen: The world’s biggest bowl of pasta salad for a summery Sunday dinner.

Outside: We sadly lost part of a big tree in the storm. Our shade will be missed, but the garden will be happy with a touch more sunshine.

Reading: Be Your Own Herbalist. For using all the herbs growing in the garden.

The worst bedtime chore: Filling the humidifier. Whoever designed it clearly never tried to do it while also holding a tired baby.

Enjoying: Our weekly box of farm veggies delivered to our door. It’s like back in the day when the milkman came. And they also bring us eggs, and meat, and coffee, so it’s kinda the best.

Hoping: Our biggest tomato will be ready soon! We have bacon in the fridge just waiting to be a BLT!

slithering snake

I made a snake for baby B to crawl around with. He loves to hold something in his hand while he moves about the house. The snake is fleece with a corduroy underbelly, has a rattle in the tip of the tail, and a crinkly tongue.

This is also the first thing I’ve successfully finished sewing in many months, so I was pretty pleased when it was done! (Even though it’s a real easy pattern… but the tongue took a couple tries!)
