I'm hanging out down here....

after I get everyone out the door.
after I go to zumba and women on weights,
after I shower,
after I do a quick clean up of the top level.
It's Tuesday after all...
Get it?
Top Level.
I'm trying so hard to work on this "clean" thing for 2011.

I could clean all day with this crew.

I'm not going to spend the day cleaning.
I'll be in my little paradise,
With my sewing machine...

We have a love/hate relationship.
I love to make things.
I hate to deal with the mechanics of making things.
The bobbin is my worst nightmare.
I've affectionately named my machine "the beast"

I think it needs a tune-up.
The cost of a tune-up is about what I paid for my sewing machine...
it may be time for a new sewing machine.

I'm working on new pillows for the canoe.

They look pretty good here,
but not so much after a long Winter of fort building...
Under the pillows is a trap door.
The fascination of all neighborhood children.
The trap door leads to a 2x2 box to hide in.
Really it was for storing extra blankets and things.
Not anymore! :)

Wish me luck with the beast,


  1. Good luck! I am sure they will turn out wonderful! I can see why the kids love the canoe. I cleaned all day yesterday and it looks like I did absolutely nothing! Ugh! I need to do some fun stuff. I am so bored of my house.

  2. Have a wonderful day! I love the canoes, I don't think that I have ever seen them. My kids would be drawn to it as well!!

  3. have a great Tuesday!! i should probably follow cue & clean right now while my little one naps....nah, this is way better.
