Week 16: Water - Days 106 & 107

Water, a wonderful thing to have in the desert. Like the monsoon storm we had last night and into the morning. Too bad I didn't get a picture of the rain. It's amazing how often we use it, how much we need it, and we don't entirely realize it. Like a friend of mine got off work early yesterday because the doctor's office she works at (she is a phlebotomist) did not have water. The office stayed open, but she deals with bodily fluid samples. Um, a doctor's office not having water? Can I say ew?

Day 106

I was washing my hands and thought, "oh! water, I could use this for my project!"... Not exactly ony of my brightest moments, but it was in the early morning and I was tired from lack of sleep...

Day 107

Poor Byron's ears (my son's stuffed bunny). They are perfect for chewing, but that also means that they get nasty really quick! Just like Edgar's nose (my son's stuffed elephant). So last night after my friend Brenda left, I started up a load of lights and threw in the two stuffed animals.

Week 15: Days 103-105

Day 103

My quilt... At this point in time, it is ready to start being pieced together! I started that on Saturday, but got a before picture...

"Time to Sew"

Day 104

I love the rain. It started when I was feeding Nikolai, which of course, the thunder distracted him. So we decided to go outside and watch the rain. Nikolai was more interested in the cars passing by. It was nice and relaxing for the two of us.

Day 105

"Mommy's Time to Play"

I am so stoked! I saved up some birthday and Christmas money and bought myself a cricut! I was going to get the smaller one (they have 'em at Big Lots), but Brandon said to wait because I wanted the expressions one. So, now I have it! Granted, I only have the two cartridges it comes with, but that is ok, the school year is starting soon! :)
