“Please supply me with local lamb. It should be delivered straight to my door, sans irradiation, and not frozen. Only fresh lamb. To go in my vegetarian baked beans. I helped get this blog started, put a lot of effort into making it work right, so it is time it started to work for me.”Continue reading “Request from Veggie Husband*”

For Purple Mountains Majesty
Our trip to CO was great! The baby traveled very well, only minimal crying on the way back as the plane came in to land. She slept through the whole flight out! We had a good time. We did archery, rode a zip line, hiked, rode mnt bikes, ate, talked, laughed, and had a greatContinue reading “For Purple Mountains Majesty”
It's more than a mindset, people!
I don’t get it. If I go to the store, I take my own bags. That way, I’m not wasting plastic. However if, I’m a bit too slow in pointing out that I have my own bag, they might put it in a bag first. And what happens if this occurs? They take the itemsContinue reading “It's more than a mindset, people!”
We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled TdF Knitting
In a few days we leave for vacation in CO, to visit our family reunion we have every 5 years. While at the reunion we have an auction to raise money to compensate the family that puts the reunion together and organizes everything. So I am attempting to make some washcloths to auction off. It’sContinue reading “We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled TdF Knitting”
I just wanted to share the pretty veggies that went into making my pretty stir-fry last night! Looks like some good eating!
Team Time Trials
So yesterday was the team time trial (TTT) of the Tour. The group over on Ravelry decided to do their own version of the TTT, by knitting for an hour, calculate your hourly stitch rate, and then averaging the top five from the team. In order to get in my best showing, I decided toContinue reading “Team Time Trials”
No Progress Today
Today I watched a few seconds of the tour, and did not do any knitting. Instead I was busy buying fabric for kitchen curtains that Husband#1 has demanded, and fed the baby. I did some cooking last week though, enough that it sounds interesting, so here goes. On Monday I had made some rice, thenContinue reading “No Progress Today”
So Beings the Tour
de France, that is. I’m working on gaining my polka-dot jersey this year, which means I will be attempting to wrangle my UFO’s into completion. Today I started with my stripy baby pants, which I would like her to wear before she grows out of them (I still have some time, but she grows fast!)Continue reading “So Beings the Tour”
A Sewing Project
I have two diaper bags, even though I mostly use the one, I have a smaller one that I can take short trips to the store and a larger one that I can take on outings that might last a while. And between small samples and such, I have enough of most things to makeContinue reading “A Sewing Project”
I Finished Something!
(Note – Do not ruin my joy by pointing out that it only takes an hour to make one. I know this. I, however, consider it a major triumph that not only did I finish not one, but TWO objects, and have figured out how to knit/crochet while feeding a baby!) Yesterday I went toContinue reading “I Finished Something!”
