:: enjoying a few warm days still. I love rainy weather if it is warm rain.
:: ecstatic that my Mom will be in town in less than a month.
|Mi Madre es su Madre, or something like that...|
:: feeling a little overwhelmed as I try to adapt to all the scheduling changes in our household. I am completely a creature of habit. Would that make me Nunzilla? Creature of habit, Nunzilla, get it?
:: harvesting basil and green peppers still. And ants still. argggggh.
:: wanting to go bra shopping. La ti da. Fancy.:: enjoying eating seeds, seeds, seeds. Can't get enough of them! Especially weird little chia seeds.
:: riding MLK Blvd. through the cultural gardens every Monday to get to Wolf's music class at the Cleveland Music School Settlement. I love that drive especially now that the gardens have been getting spruced up.
:: holding onto dreams of actually completing a pair of knitted socks. I started knitting a pair in April, I think, and after throwing away some early attempts, I am 1/6th of the way done. Ugh.
:: thinking I would love to soak in a hot spring, which I have never done. Preferably in Japan, but that might be pushing it!
:: grateful for my husband. He is my #1 partner in crime.
|Not literally my partner in crime, maybe my partner in well-meaning, spirited hijinx.|
:: anticipating the astronomical doctor and dentist bills in our near future. Totally worth it to go in for a tune-up though. Just wish it was more like other businesses where you could get an estimate and compare costs and service before committing to things. It always amazes me that it is all so confusing, even though I work in the industry. It must be terrible for people that really have no understanding of what their bills say.
:: itching to get creative. If I could find an extra few hours somewhere, I could really get sewing and like hide my house under a giant slipcover! With ric-rac!
:: wishing for a supremely cute vintage tear drop trailer. I can barely control myself when I see one.
|I want to eat some weird jello mold and deviled eggs and then pop in for a little seista!|
:: wondering if I will get my freezer emptied out to make room for home-made applesauce galore!!! Apple-picking with the Hoffbros is one of my favorite things all year. Would you believe it ranks higher than Christmas for me?!

:: hoping for more fun days spent with my daughter and grand-pumpkin! It is almost time for a first birthday which means bearing witness to a first tasting of buttercream. It's like a tribal rite of passage. Will she like it, adore it, GASP, hate it?!?!
|Here is the dynamic duo!|
:: remembering when Jassy was on t.v. when she was little, maybe 7 yrs.old. She was on "Brain Drain" and she was sooooooo cute.
::Imagining what it would have been like to meet my Gma-in-love, Edna. Whenever I spend time at the home of my Mom-in-love, which I was lucky enough to do today, I can't help but feel like I know her just a little bit because her memory is so lovingly kept alive by her daughter.
