Thrifted. Updates. Randoms.
Fabric. Yards of it. A very neat book that describes the history of the farms on major routes in Maine (And no, ours isn't in it. A drawback for being off the beaten path, I suppose.) A kid size leather purse. Two transferware coffee cups and a set of metal measuring cups (like my mom had!). $10.00
Yesterday I had the perfect day. Breakfast with my family, stacked wood with my littles creating this elaborate play schema next to me and the BOG working on a project nearby, line dried three loads of laundry, made homemade spaghetti (noodles included) with my littles, after nap a playdate included 3 fantastic moms and we together watched our 8 children play and then we went for a couple mile walk, watched the train go by and made a cookie cake. A lot in a day, perhaps, but the pace of the day didn't feel hurried.
When my little boy says, "But mama, can't we just make him a little something?", I end up bringing a little gift to a 'no gift' party. I made this:
Hamburger buns from scratch. Seriously, you must try these warm.
these homemade pancakes as they are cooking. Yum.
And we're replenishing inside flowers. I love this time of year.
3) Pictures from the memorial day parade. Which she was initially unsure about and then once started, scared and in my lap until the very end. And then she wanted more once it was over. He loved the parade though.
