Tuesday morning

It's a chilly, damp morning here.  Normally I watch two little girls on Tuesdays, but today I'm not, so Lydia and I are hanging out at home.  I have to do some cooking, cleaning, and laundry.

I had a great weekend with my friend Katie.  It's the first time I've went to visit her by myself, and it was a lot of fun.  The kids had fun here with Nathaniel and his cousin Jake came, which was a big treat, too.

I've been researching Bulgarian food and how Western foreign archaeologists lived in Egypt in the 1890s.  (Obviously not for the same reasons!)   The food research has been fun, and I'm going to have to try out some of the recipes I've come across.  The Egypt bit is a harder one to search out, as you might imagine.

To completely change the subject, my sister makes really cute coasters, crosses, etc with magazines.  When I was at Katie's, I spotted these vases:

I don't think they'd be hard to make, but very time consuming.  They did look really cute on her bookshelf.


  1. Glad you had a good visit. The vases are cute, I wonder how many rolls that would take.

  2. I don't know, but I have some colorful garden catalogs that would be great for this!
