No WIPs Just Words

With our convention last week and playing catch up this week, I haven't hardly picked up a crochet hook. And my cross stitching is starting to gather dust. I need to start scheduling craft time into my day.

I'm relearning how to type with one hand. Funny how once you learn to type, you forget how to hunt and peck. At least I have. Why am I typing with one hand? Because my Bean has entered The Super Cling Stage. As long as I'm holding her, she's happy. This is new to me. Hope was not a cuddly baby; she didn't like to be held for long periods of time. And when she was 7 weeks old, I was back to work full time. I don't mind holding her all the time, but eventually I have to do those necessary things like cook, clean and go to the bathroom. Then I incur the wrath of Pterodactyl Baby.

Speaking of stages, we had a milestone this week: sleeping through the night! Woo hoo! (trumpets blowing, cymbals clashing, confetti flying) Monday night, Alex slept all night. Only one wake-up Tuesday night, then all night sleep last night. Ah, sleep. How I've missed you :-)

Over at Daisy Cottage Designs today,  you can print out a cute sign that says Home is Where the Yarn Is. I printed one and taped it to my yarn cabinet. 

Our peaches are ripe. I found a peach jam recipe that I'd like to try. I've only made freezer jam before so this will be an interesting experiment.

I'm making Mini Chicken Pot Pies for dinner tonight. The only things I do different are I cook the chicken all the way through before adding it to the mix but I throw the peas in frozen.

That's it for today. Nothing exciting. 
Thanks for reading.
Blessings :-)

    1. I really didn't expect it so soon. My oldest was a couple months older before she started sleeping through the night.

    1. Me too! She seems young to be doing it (not that I'm complaining!). The chicken pies are delicious, a family favorite.

  5. It's hard to get in crafting when you have a baby. Yay! for Alex sleeping through the night - that's good for you. Thanks for the link to the yarn sign - I think I'll go and print that out now. Have a good evening. :)

    1. It really is! And I miss it. Maybe with her sleeping more at night (and thus me too) I won't be so tired in the evenings after she goes to bed. I can craft then. I thought the yarn sign was cute; glad you like it, too.
