Garden/Sew/Cook/Gamble/Drive

Here is the wheatgrass I am growing to juice. It's really kind of an interesting science project. The seeds are growing on a bed of wet unbleached paper towels. It's fun to see them sprout so quickly and grow. The grass is at least an inch tall, and I just "planted" them Saturday morning.
This was supper on Friday night. I don't know why I took a picture. I just did. It's a fried egg (the green stuff is cilantro), tomato chunks, and rye toast. Barnaby made it. What a good man.
This is the crocheted sink mat. I finished it Saturday night. It's my favorite one so far because of the colors. If I didn't already tell you, it's for my sister because her old one got a hole in it after using it non-stop for three or four years.

I started an Afghan for Barnaby yesterday. He went with me to Hobby Lobby and picked out the yarn. I started one pattern but neither one of us liked it, so I started another one last night. The pattern was fine. It was just that with variegated yarn, it looked all messy and the pattern didn't really show very well.

So there you have it. I'm gardening, crocheting, and cooking/baking, as usual. That's what I've been doing the past week or so while neglecting you. Oh, and I've been working in between all that stuff.

I spent a lot of time with my dad over the weekend. My mom was out of town so we took him to the casino on Saturday. Then yesterday I went with him to pick my mom up. It was about a four-hour round trip to Decatur and back. I made my dad stop at Cracker Barrel so I could buy a bag of candy. I love to get candy from that place!

It's been storming since last night at about 10:00 p.m. It thundered and lightening'd all night. Since Abby is so skeered of thunderstorms, she sat on my head all night and kept me awake. And then Little Boy decided he was going to have diarrhea and needed to go out twice. I shouldn't gripe about that. At least he didn't shit in the bed! That would have sucked.

I gotta get to work. Y'all come back now, ya hear?

  1. The red one you made for me is still in great shape. I pretty much only use it when we have company. Since I don't have a dishwasher, and I have too many dishes to fit in my little sink drainer, that sure comes in handy for the serving pieces after I've washed them.
