Lotus has been asking for a haircut “like Simon” for several months. We took her in for a trim and it seemed to satisfy her for a short time but then she quickly started asking for that short haircut again. I just wanted to make sure it was what she really wanted and not just wanting to go too when someone else was getting a cut.
Well, today she asked again, while gazing at herself in the mirror and it was no way related to anyone else getting a haircut. Okay! I guess my girl knows what she wants!
Her hand is up because she’s saying “Bye, Hair!!!!” instead of “cheese.”
She is very pleased!
Xander’s reaction was “Oh my god, she looks just like a mini Isaac.” She looks like a little Lotus to me. *love*
Perler bead fun, and you can see the glasses are old news because neither Xander or Simon are wearing them.
Jake, the dog.
Isaac and his creation-a master poke ball…
They turned out great, guys!
I go through pho crazy periods when I cannot get enough, and then all of a sudden I can’t take anymore star anise flavor for a while.
Right now I am daydreaming about another bowl of yummy pho *and* we are on a tight budget. Waaah!
A silly faux pho at home attempt involved boxed beef broth, random vegetables, too thin rice noodles and italian style meatballs. It had absolutely no flavor, even with the lime juice and Siracha, but it did tame the cravings.
I’m hoping to be rocking something a little more authentic soon.
I took myself out on the town, Zoe style. First another hike on BPA trail. I wanted to get to the sweet viewpoint we missed last time aaaasaand…I missed it again.
I hiked past the first viewpoint, thinking I just needed to go further. But after 20 minutes of downhill, which should have been a clue, the trail narrowed to a tiny, unkempt path that had me practically bushwhacking into some woods. I headed back at that point.
What happened to my trail?
Then a quiet lunch with me, myself and I. She has great taste in food!
I have completed five projects recently, all from the ratty tatty bags of yarn buried in the closet. Woot! Unfortunately, once I start a pattern I cannot put it down until I finish and my fingers get terribly sore (and my butt from all the sitting). I’m all about the project and less about the journey. I need to force myself to take another break.
I made Jason the Robot Hat. The color work adds an extra layer of wool inside, which makes it warm and cozy!
Simon asked for a hat and picked out the wool from my yarn stash. Gotta love getting a new knitted item from leftovers, so basically free! The pattern is called Barley…
The Warm Winter Pom Pom Hat…
This hat is really an adult size so Lotus and I can share. The pink, hand painted wool is a never-ending ball of yarn. I’ve already made a small vest and a hat and I still have a large bit leftover. Matching Lotus mitts?
Xander had outgrown his last hand-knit sweater and it was time for a new one. I used the red onion dyed yarn and knit a pattern called Greyson.
Simon flipping his favorite pancake recipe (1/2 cup oats, 1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1 egg and a splash of water).
We did a vision and hearing screening and found out two of our babies need glasses. Both Xander and Simon need glasses and we had no idea! They never showed any signs and seemed to see fine.
At least they are making the adjustment together. They are best buddies…
Lotus wanted her picture taken too and I see lunch is still all over her face. Whoops!
