Today I got some mystery mail. I'm certainly not complaining, but I'm not sure who sent it. I received some Dream in Color Smooshy in Giant Peach, a color that I love (and carry in the shop!) and some Cherry Tree Hill, Louet Gems Merino in Dusk. Thank you to whomever sent this lovely yarn my way!
I also received Rebecca Eckler's first book, Knocked Up, which I was dying to read. I had read her 2nd and 3rd books, but couldn't get my hands on the 1st. Rebecca was so nice to send me a copy, autographed as well!
The special part of it, is that Rowan, who is about 4 years old now (I think?) autographed it as well! How awesome is that? Thank you Rebecca for going out of your way to do this for me. I can't wait to start reading it already!
It was decided thatthe little Mr. Sean needed a hair cut today. My mom has been bugging me for a few weeks to get him a haircut (it was growing over his ears again and his curls were getting out of control! As much as I LOVE his curls). We have Jakob's 1st birthday party on Sunday, and my mother said it would be nice if he got his haircut before then. So.... we made a trip today to get his hair cut.
He was REALLY well behaved during the entire haircut. I was very impressed. He even let her use the clipper for above his ears and for his neck. (Not that he really needed it?) but he didn't freak out like the last time. Very impressed!
And we spiked up his hair with some gel for fun. TOTALLY cute! I love it. He is so handsome.
In some gardening news, I cannot figure out for the life of me, what the heck happened ot my sunflower? One is doing beautifully. Actually, as of yesterday, BOTH were doing beautifully. And today... one has shrivelled up...? I just don't get it. I'll give it a few more days to see if it comes back to life, but I just don't get what happened.
My zucchini plant is doing really well. The stem is doing very well and seems to be getting thicker by the day. I will check to see if I can buy already started cucumber plants this weekend to plant in the garden. Very disappointed about the cucumbers, since they are my fave vegetable.
The three types of lettuce in the garden are also by the day getting thicker & thicker with more leaves. I just love it. I can't wait to see how they turn out! (And taste!)
One of my stringless beans is really tall, while the others are starting to slowly push out of the ground. It's all very exciting to me, as this is my first vegetable garden ever! I used to have a vegetable garden when I was really young, but it really belonged to my dad and I don't remember anything at all about it.
And my radishes are starting to grow a lot too. I have no idea how to tell that they are ready either. All I know is that they are fully matured at 24-28 days, and they were planted on Saturday, May 17th, 2008. 24-28 days from the 17th is June 10th -14th, so I won't worry about that until around then.
Some pretty tiles I saw today, had to photograph them. I just loved the colors together.
Tonight Jamie & I watched Last Comic Standing from last night, as well as the 2 hour season finale of Lost. Sean fell asleep somewhere in between Last Comic Standing and Lost. He hadn't napped at all today. It's been a while now that he hasn't taken an afternoon nap, and frankly I'm not too happy about it. By the way it looks, he may not ever nap an afternoon again.... is this even possible? At 17 months old to eliminate the afternoon nap?? Please tell me it's a phase he's going through? He's refusing to nap. I am not even sure how he has energy all day long to keep going?
I got a ton of knitting done on the baby sweater. It should be finished by tomorrow. (That's the plan). I've cast off the last sleeve and I just need to seam up the sleeve/shoulder with picking up stitches and doing a three needle bind-off. Very excited to put this project away for when it fits Mack. I need to move on to another project already! So much knitting I want to get done before Mack is actually born!
Sometimes I wish I crocheted.(Is that even a way to conjugate the word?) Well, I don't. But aren't these teether/pacifier holders the cutest?? Maybe one day I'll learn to crochet and make some of these for other babies! (I know how to single crochet, but other than that, not really too sure what is going on, etc...!)
