Since it’s been forever since my last post (and I have good reason, an 11 pound, now nearly 2 month old good reason) I thought it was time to jump back in the saddle. Nobody told me it would take nearly 2 months until I had some semblance of a routine with a newborn but hey, who’s complaining when you get to look at this face everyday.
What I’ve been up to lately:
Reading: Just finished The Farming of Bones – very depressing but extremely well written and it was a great read for book club, lots to discuss. When I’m not trying to finish a fiction novel I am currently digesting piles of baby books. This one is my current favorite.
Cooking: White Chicken Chili – yum!
Baking: These for Finny and Donk’s Craft-Along. They were so yummy, my women’s group loved them! I also made this but it wasn’t great. I have to make something with the pounds and pounds of lemons hanging off the tree in my backyard.
Watching: I seriously contemplated naming my son Jack Bauer Taylor because I love this show so much but we liked Tripp better. Another show I am so glad is back after the holiday hiatus is Grey‘s although am I the only one that is annoyed with the whole Denny/Izzie dead guy scenario?
Crafting: This scarflet is slow going because I usually have a little one in my arms. Not sure how much longer I’ll need it here in Spain but I can’t wait until it’s finished. I’m using a brown wool and turquoise worsted together, I’ll post pics when it’s off the needles. I also made one of these with a beautiful asian silk to carry my little guy around in. Since he loves the sling so much I have 3 different ways to carry him now – the Baby Bjorn, the Ultimate Baby Wrap and a handmade ring sling.
