Winter Wonderland

 I think the mailbox is in there somewhere!

Are you jealous?  No?  It's probably because you can't feel the tropical temperatures that go along with such beautiful snow.  It'll be 15F tomorrow.  I might break out the shorts!  A nice change from last week's high temps of 0F!  I bet you're jealous now! 


Unfinished Business

So, with the man of the house being out of town half of this week, I decided on Day 1 that I would try to get something done.  Something other than cleaning, childing, feeding...you know, something for me.  I have been wanting a new dress forever, and before getting pregnant with child #2, I had bought a pattern and some material to make an awesome dress (well awesome to me anyway).  Well...since it's purchase, it's been sitting in a bag in the basement wishing to be made.
Enter Tuesday.
The little guy was asleep, the little girl was following me around.  I figured she could sit and watch me or go play if she got bored.  
Problem #1: she didn't.  It's difficult to lay fabric out to be cut when little hands keep pushing the cutting board, blowing the material and grabbing at pins and scissors.
Problem #2:  the little guy woke up.  Good news:  I got two pieces of the lining cut out.  Progress.
Problem #3:  I have to use the dining room table to lay things out to be cut.  
Problem #4:  We need the dining room table to eat at...luckily it hasn't posed a problem the last few days since we can fit two people around the sewing mess.
Enter Thursday:
Everything in exactly the same place as I left it on Day one.  Those two lining pieces are still the only pieces cut out.  And since that table will need to go back to it's originally intended purpose shortly, I guess they will be the only pieces cut out for awhile.  Hopefully it won't be another year and a half until that happens.



Where have you been all my life??
