{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}

{Pretty} and {Funny}
Pretty, because I really like this picture (I only wish I could show you how wonderful those stir-fried veggies smelled!) and funny, because, well, I took a picture of my lunch!
I have really missed having a piano in the house to play, and we were recently able to purchase an electronic piano.  Usually I am an acoustic snob, but with this instrument I can play after the baby has gone to bed or while she is napping. She also like to hear me play, which also makes me very happy.
Soft flannel is sitting on my sewing desk ready to be hemmed.  I'm making swaddling blankets for the baby boy who is due in a few more weeks, because I discovered with my first baby that it is nearly impossible to buy blankets that are suitable for swaddling (they're either too small or not square).


  1. Can you post how the blankets come out? Pretty please?

    And your lunch is making me hungry-yum.

  2. My mother made me tons of blankets like those when I was expecting my first son. Having a large supply came in handy. :)

  3. oh i love flannel blankies...i have all my kids' saved to make blankets for their babies's hard to part with them because i remember those snuggly years like they were yesterday. congrats on your soon-to-be-here baby boy!

    ps. i take pictures of my food all the time!

  4. Flannel blankets are the way to go. Well done!
