Today, I cut out about a million denim hearts and squares for a couple of quilts I have planned. A certain little girl hung out with me and practiced her measuring:
(The trick, fellow four-year-olds, is to get the edge of your ruler flush with the edge of what you want to measure. Notice the impeccable form above).
I listened to
seven times, claims iTunes.
I went to the library and got both a Voltron AND a Thundercats DVD set, but I did not get the book the library ordered and put on hold for me about how to make Waldorf dolls, on account of the librarian was being very weird ("But Julie Finn has to be present to pick up her hold item." "Um, I'm Julie." "Do you have an ID?" "I have my library card." "Well..."). I'm not kidding you, she looked exactly like the ballot judge who gave me the loopy voting machine intro on Election Day.
I put some nifty little Valentine gifties up on my etsy shop:
I added some New Years' Resolutions to my list (gardening, and seed sprouting).
I got my partners for the Valentine's Classroom Card swap.
I made this weird but delicious chili-soup thing: You put in the veggie chili mix stuff, but then you put in all your leftover and freezer veggies and fill the pot the rest of the way up with veggie broth, and you get your partner to make up a batch of Bob's Red Mill gluten-free cornbread. Then you mix it all up in a little Pyrex bowl just for you:
I played DanceDance Revolution. A lot.
I ate some more cornbread with ginger jam.
And Willow is here now to remind me that it's Family Art time.
Ooh, and I think my coccyx has finally healed! Matt doesn't know it yet, but we are totally having sex tonight.
