The Tiniest Kidnapper

      No Comments on The Tiniest Kidnapper

Smalls insists that Littler was trying to kidnap her here. I’m not sure how that would actually work, even accounting for how strong Littler is. Still, it was cute, so slap a few stickers on it, and it’s brutally kawaii, ha ha. I’m feeling really anxious today for some stupid reason. Yes, I have the LEEP/LEETZ tomorrow, but I am… Read more »

Bed Buddies

      No Comments on Bed Buddies

While the girls have been sharing a room for some time now, they have something new in common — matching beds (and later this year, matching headboards). Littler’s bed was delivered this morning, and she had fun teasing her sister for having a ‘smaller’ bed. Small’s bed, being older, means that the mattress isn’t as perky, and it made for… Read more »

351

      No Comments on 351

351 refers to the number of stitches I had to cast on for this. I got lucky and got it right the first time — but I still counted it twice to make very sure that it was right. I’m currently knitting the first row before joining it in the round because it’s going to be easier to get it… Read more »

Not Spaghetti Squash

      No Comments on Not Spaghetti Squash

Today, I had the dubious pleasure of coring four pumpkins for tomorrow. I don’t know what the frack happened, but two of them decided they were spaghetti squash and I had like, ALL THE STRANDS. My working theory of the moment is that it had to do with the tool I used on the two over the spoon I used… Read more »

Yay Tidying

One of the projects Z has wanted to tackle for ages has been our pantry. Today was the day that he managed it, and he did a great job clearing out stuff. Winners included a can of tonic water from before we moved into this house, and a box of Stove Top that predated that. Whups. But it’s out of… Read more »

Peeksee

I was well pleased with this ‘spooky’ picture. Dinner was a bit late, so I was trying to think what might make for a good picture for tonight. Littler loves to hide under blankets with her tablet, and one of the shots actually managed to match up with her peering up through the holes in the blanket. She looks like… Read more »

Saving the Day

The last bit for Littler’s Halloween costume came in today, so we let her put the bits on and flail around for the camera. I took a stupid number of pictures, but this one did the best of catching the essence of the ‘shoot’. We need to get Smalls to check the fit of her costume as well, but I’m… Read more »

The Bat Has Landed

I’m pleased that I managed to take the least flattering picture of me ever to express my joy of being back with my bat. They are here, we’re fed, and much happiness is the order of the day. Well, they’ve just gone up to bed, and I’ve eaten their dinner remnants atop mine. I am going to sleep like none… Read more »

‘Harvest Themed’

      No Comments on ‘Harvest Themed’

Today, Littler’s class had some ‘harvest themed’ events going on during the afternoon session. And while she only attends the morning session on a Friday currently, she was welcome to come back with two guests, so we attended. This picture was from the first activity she took part in, which was dressing up and racing around. I’m not really sure… Read more »

FLOAR

I got it into my head today to maintenance the vacuum cleaner. After some unclogging, de-hairing, and a touch of super glue, it seemed to be in fairly good nick. So I tested it on my rug. And then I picked up toys and vacuumed the other rug. And then I ended up doing the foyer and the study; the… Read more »
