simply saturday

Busy day in our home, but one of those wonderful and rare times we actually checked a few things off the ever-growing list. Some accomplishments included:

*changing some light bulbs*

*staining a child's bookcase (this was pre-stain obviously)*


*baking blueberry muffins*

*cleaning the entire house from top to bottom*

*stopping to smell the roses (well, the hibiscus in this case)*


*removing the pram from frame and rubbing the canvas over with soapy water, then rinsing and air drying*

*sitting down for some homemade split pea soup for lunch*


*trying to figure out how to set up my needles in order to knit in the round... still working on this one*


*having some lovely friends round for wine, cheese and a playdate*

And now a quiet night in with a few candles, a simple pasta and my partner in crime, the best fix-it-up-er I know, Brad.

What did you check (or not check) off the list today?

Mmmm yummy looking soup... There is always an ever growing list around here. For us it was filing, filing & more filing, getting tax organised a party, some grocery shopping & YAY for me, I finally 'got' the crocheted motif! A very productive day over here. Enjoy the rest of your weekend...

Yummy looking soup! I remember when I figured out how to knit in the round, I felt I had really accomplished something!

Yesterday, I did grocery shopping with 3 kids in tow..and no one lost body parts! I got all caught up on laundry and we were able to go on a walk together as a family. Good day! I hope today is just as productive!

You got lots done, congratulations!!
I distributed children over a 200km expanse including interstate (unimpressive by ACT standards) & managed to have 3 hours alone. Then collected them slowly over 3 hours, so treated us to dinner out. Am getting through work, the night is still young . . . love Posie

circular needles are a much easier way to knit in the round... and if you use double sided needles, make sure you get needle stoppers for the ends! it will save you a LOT of grief. :o)

I'm very impressed! Can you come back to Sydney and over to my house!! I went to Jennekes baby shower yesterday morning, fed my hungry 3 month old daughter for most of the day while stressing about not having packed for long flight home today, stayed up til 2am packing for two babies and me, fed Clodagh til 3am and 7..

Looks like you had a lovely productive day, the weather was beautiful wasn't it? Your cooking looks delicious. We had a relaxing day doing a bit of cooking and finding new library books to read. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your weekend. xo
