Steve has to work this week, and after having him around for two weeks, we are missing him today. Apparently I was taking two weeks off too, because this morning I woke up and realized that our house is a disaster. Today has been all about cleaning, although for some reason nothing seems to actually be clean yet. Sometimes I get this crazy cleaning energy and start dusting the ceiling fans and washing the windows and other stuff I rarely do, then after all that work I look around at all the toys on the floor and dishes on the table and it seems like, for all my efforts, I deserve to have a cleaner house.
Over a year ago, I was knitting a log cabin blanket, but the blocks started getting too long and taking forever, and I got tired of it and stopped working on it. It's been sitting in the basement collecting dust, but the other night I decided to use it instead of letting it sit there unfinished forever. I figured it would be a perfect Noah-sized blanket, so I cast off, sewed some fabric on one side, and now I have one less unfinished project sitting in my basement. Emma has decided it's hers now, but here is an action shot with it's intended owner.
And, a couple more pictures of the kids from over the weekend:
