"bok bok"

.This is the noise I hear coming from the kitchen: "bok, bok...bok, bok". My son is making chicken noises in the kitchen and I have no idea why.

He comes into the livingroom with a squash that has a curly neck and a top that looks like a beak.

I'd take a picture but he later turned it into a gun, it broke, and I'm not showing the remains of a headless squash chicken.

Come on, be a little impressed that I had a squash in my house!

Is Ignorance Bliss?

It seems like the more I know about these things, the more I NEED to know about these things, thus making me work that much harder:
  • school
  • religion
  • food additives
  • healthcare
  • politics

...the list goes on.

Really, life would be easier if I could just live in ignorance. I guess that's like living without a conscience though, isn't it? Ugh.

There you have it- the first project I've finished in, well, I can't remember when. It's just a simple baby quilt I put together with fabrics that I had for a young women's project. I let Kyra lay out the pattern and then I promptly sewed 2 of the rows together in the wrong order so we had to rearrange the whole thing. The back is the brown polka dotted flannel fabric you see turned up at the bottom. It's an odd shape (more long than it is wide), so I might add another row or 2 to the width if I make another one, but then I would need more than a yard of the backing material. Now, although I didn't finish it by the time said baby was born, I did get it completed before she was blessed. Yeah me!

Here's a great link if you have a few minutes. (Thanks, dear friend o' mine!)

"We can either feel terrible about our flaws or we can take a different route and embrace them. I might not have perfect ----s, but I am ME and no one can pull that off as well as I can."

I can't agree with this statement for all flaws, but I think there are a host of what some would consider flaws that fall into this category. To those people, and those flaws that just really don't matter... I say to heck with it all! Be yourself. Who knows, that flaw might just become your greatest asset.
