Instagram Fridays

A quick and simple sum-up of my week. I’ve got a lot on my mind right now, especially with a trip next week. I am going to TNNA (eep!! I am all together excited and anxious.) and it will be my first time away, having to travel by plane, by myself, solo in a very long time. Anyway, it will all be good, I am sure of it.

Twirly bubbles – this was before a virus wiped her out for the week.

I found an app to add frames and group my photos, yay! This kid loves being tossed but has a wicked grip on my hands. Lorelai took these photos for me!

Lanesplitter knit skirt in progress! I need to pick up the stitches for the waistband.

I took both kids to the supermarket.  By myself.  First time.  We survived and did get everything on our list. I don’t really want to do it again, but probably will.

Someone has moved on from just standing up to thinking that the stairs are the place to be.

I am so happy it is summer. My dog can stop barking at the school bus every single morning.

We totally fed the baby a spoonful or two of bacon bits.  He loved them.  He’s also turning into a ham for the camera.

I had to renew my drivers license today.  They actually gave me back my old one which I found odd.  And they let me see the photo before printing it.  It’s actually not a bad photo as far as licenses go, considering that I also brought the two little ones with my to get this done.  Residual confidence from the shopping trip I guess. 

And there it is. I am very excited I found mini canvases at Michaels – I am planning to put some of the Instagram photos printed and ModPodge them on = Instant Art! Enjoy your weekend!


Sweet, simple, fun, filtered.
Everyday moments from your week captured with nothing but a cell phone.

Baby bum! I am very lucky that even with the baby on the move and getting into the older one’s stuff, she is still really sweet on her brother.

 There was a great rainbow (double even!) after a storm over the weekend.  This was the best picture I could get – by the time I grabbed the good camera it was already fading.  I was really impressed by how vibrant this one was – unusual for CT.  I feel like even when I was in Hawaii, I never saw a rainbow that bright.

 The Lorax is a big Max & Ruby fan and seems especially taken with Bunny Scouts. So when I saw the Pretend Play Sash with Badges I knew it was perfect.  When I asked what she did that she could make a badge for, I was expecting her to talk about swimming lessons. Instead she said “I helped take care of Nate” – so this is the “Taking Care of My Brother” badge – she drew the two of them on there and per her request I added the heart.  She also made a star badge and a “cinderella” badge with a pumpkin and her name. 

 This is a better view of the Stitched by JessaLu bag that I received this week.  The yarn is Socktopus yarn in the “Lorelai” colorway. I’m planning to start a Wingspan shawl soon. 

Our first week of summer vacation is just about done.  I am pleased that I am not completely stressed out with Lorelai home full time again.  I have been trying to do “school” with her each day – she’s working on writing letters or doing a few worksheets – it’s short, maybe 5 minutes? But it is something and she likes it, so we keep at it.  I’ve got a bunch of stuff lined up (thank you Pinterest) to try and cover other activities. Today for school we cooked – we have a rainbow cake in the oven right now.   I hope it turns out ok, but even if it doesn’t cake is cake!
