Creepy, projects, repurpose

August 8, 2017

1. Rachel nods and smiles and pats herself, ‘keepy’ she says. She points at S and me and says the same thing. ‘Creepy’ is another one of her new words, and I don’t think she grasps it’s meaning yet, but it is funny.

2. I’m taking advantage of Rachel’s one long nap a day to work on some painting. It was the ceiling in the stairwell and upper hallway yesterday, and now the walls are getting patched and trim taped off.

3. Repurposing a flood water stained quilt top into a drop cloth. It’s a little sad, but better than it taking up space in my sewing supplies for another six years.


Holding on, sleepy, try again

1. S let Rachel have his sunglasses while we were grocery shopping. When he asked for them back, she replied in her sweet little toddler voice, ‘no… sorry’.

2. Getting Rachel after she wakes up from her nap, she rubs her eyes and says ‘tired’.

3. Making a terrible batch of dinner rolls, and not minding, because they are just dinner rolls and I can try again.
