I mean who can wear shorts and flips on Christmas, New Years and practically half of January?
The peeps who live in Southern California, that's who. And I'm laughing as I write this post because of good handful of bloggers that I know, who also live in this region of the state have also written about the weather we are experiencing this week.
RAIN. Rain. And some more rain.
We are just spoiled weather wimps who are rained in.
This was my driveway about 20 minutes ago.
I went through every single setting on my camera because I have NO idea how to shoot rain. Seriously.
But now on to more intersting news.
I am the world's worst seamstress. Seriously. If you ask my mom she'll tell how she paid hundreds of dollars when I was twelve for sewing lessons and I walked away not knowing how to do anything. Seriously- nothing. Last year for my birthday she signed me up for more sewing lessons, per my request. I was supposed to make a vest with a zipper. The class was supposed to be 4 hours long, meaning the average student could finish this project in that amount of time. It took me twelve hours. YUP- three times as long as the average student, and the last 6 hours were with an instructor and myself only. Then this Christmas I did Julie's Scarf Along and just about chopped off my thumb. She laughed when I told her and said I wasn't the only one who did that. Great. It took me like 5 trips to JoAnn's, thirty phone calls to my mom, two trips for her to come over and save me and finally I finished.
So why this long saga of my sewing history? Because I just completed a simple sewing project on my own. Whew!! I made Baby Grace some burp cloths. In one afternoon. Now if you know anything about sewing you know exactly how simple these were and if you have a daughter who's over the age of 7 I'm sure she would be perfectly capable of completing this project by herself. But still, I'm pretty stoked on the whole endeavor.
And just a few shots of our morning.
Monkey had the Share Bag today and since he is in the Bunnies class at school Baby made an appearance.
Yes, she really does have a leash on.
All of the children were so excited, Baby was a hit.
