Yep- that's how my Dad was dressed.
We had some "craft time" too.
And as you can see, I get my creativity from both sides of the family. (To be fair the only reason my Dad is weaving a bracelet is because we bet him he couldn't) Apparently my competitiveness runs in the family too.
And here is Aidan with a bracelet he made for his teacher. He is learning fast that women respond to jewelry, because upon receiving the bracelet, she offered to take him out on a date and get some ice cream.

Don't tell James, but when catalogs like this one
arrive in my mailbox, I want to quit my job, move to the country and grow things.
I enjoyed the CSA last year and am currently debating if I am going to go for it again.. I feel like we wasted quite a bit of food, but then we also ate very healthy, even with the waste.
I am debating pulling out one of my flowerbeds and putting a veggie garden there....... but that would require some sort of privacy fence. (Don't ask questions because I am trying to be polite. Just trust me, it would.) We had little gardens last year but I never really committed myself to them, maybe because I knew I would be picking up a massive box of veggies every Thursday. So maybe this year will be the year of the Kahl garden? Maybe if I can get all the Kahl's living in our house on board and committed to help we could actually make some progress. What do you think James, should we go for it?
So while I am trying to decide what to do I will just ogle catalogs like this one.
What about you? Growing anything this year?

But it seems too crazy to be real - just a washcloth and water? I have to say though that this is the first winter since I was pregnant that I haven't battled dry peeling skin and zits. Maybe I am just outgrowing it.... but somehow I think it is a direct result of the facewashing.

Then order Jimmy John's Delivery so each person can have the sandwich of their choice, and that way Mom can have Jalapeno chips.
(A very rare treat indeed, my mouth is watering even as I type this but sadly there are no chips in our house!)
Have some good entertainment like the Picnic game.

Lamp from my Grandma that my neighbor fixed for me. I think for now I like it best without a shade. I know, I am weird like that.

He isn't one yet but he is well on his way. It seems almost every Saturday James finds some sort of science fair for him and Aidan to attend, and the two of them hang out for the day and then come home and tell me about circuits and pulleys and trebuchet's........ all of my favorite subjects.
This last weekend they went to a Mad Science fair at the Edina Community Center and Aidan told me he learned that the Chinese were the first group of people to make paper. Cool, huh? I suppose I should check out Wikipedia to see if he has his facts right, but I need to get this blogpost wrapped up.
