it’s like they KNOW.

they KNOW when you had hoped to clean the front room a little.
they KNOW when you got your hair looking okay and put on clean clothes.
they KNOW when you got all your supplies together.
they KNOW when you’ve had a script of points and lesson plans running through your head for the past few days.
they KNOW when you have plans to do something special during their nap.
they KNOW when you are about to hit record on the video camera.

they KNOW.
they KNOW, and they show you that they KNOW.
they show you they KNOW by rebelling against taking their nap.

they, being toddlers.
more specifically:
they, being owen.

so much for recording that hand carding video today…
they have other plans for us.

-get to know how to start and stop your wheel without your hands!

-practice spinning with yarn from your stash. just tie it to the bobbin, through the hooks, and through the orafice, practice feeding it on, and pulling it off again, practice adjusting your wheel to get the proper take up

-if something is wrong and you are spinning, STOP TREADLING!

favorite thing:

baking soda

and because someone asked me to post pictures of me with my new bag:
my Zuma Namaste bag

coming clean…

Published by Meghan under Babble

i feel like i have to admit a few things to you, to help clear my conscious. i have been hiding some things. so here goes.

 1. my house is a pit. there is stuff stacked in every corner. my piano is still in the middle of the living room from when we painted the front room 2 or 3 weeks ago. and i can’t tell you how many dustballs, toys, and crumbs are living under my couch. dishes are piling up in my sink. and bob doesn’t think i’m doing a great job with the litterbox. (sorry, bob. we’ll scoop that this afternoon)

2. it’s january 18th, and my christmas tree is still up. yup. it’s still there. with lights on. and our stockings are still hung by the chimney with care.

3. i didn’t take a shower for 7 days last week. i washed. i just didn’t soak or shower. why? it was just TOO FREAKING COLD! i rinsed my hair a couple times during that time, and washed the pits and nether regions. i just couldn’t bring myself to wet my whole person down. so the hair went into piggy tails for a couple days, i loaded up on deodorant, and i tried not to make eye contact with people incase they could tell. i did shower yesterday, and it was still FREAKING COLD!

4. peanut butter cookies are my kryptonite. i can’t say no to them. especially when i bake a double batch of big cookies on a snow day thursday, ate the dough, and then proceeded to “sneak” some throughout the past couple days. i think i ate a batch and a half by myself. how do i know? my pants aren’t fitting so well this morning. damn.

5. lately, while owen has been napping, and i SHOULD be catching up on housework, or doing something productive, i’ve been poking around on ravelry. or napping. or eating the aforementioned cookies. i just can’t seem to bring myself to clean/organize.

there. now that all of that weight is off my chest, i feel better. i’m gonna go have a cookie and a cup of coffee.

blizzards! and not from dairy queen

Published by Meghan under Babble

it’s really gonna be crappy weather the next couple days here. tonight, my weather report has warnings that mention scary phrases like:

mmmm…nothing like a good winter storm to make you appreciate your furnace. even if the old thermostat is set at 65 degrees and you are wearing two pairs of socks to keep the chill off your toes!

so, owen and i are hoping for another snow day tomorrow. unfortunately, ry won’t get that luxury now that he’s working retail, but the two of us will make the most of it! jumping on beds, running amok, picnics in the living room, baking cookies, and all that good stuff! and if i’m really lucky? little man will be worn out from all that exciting activity, and i will spend my afternoon spinning that beautiful polwarth, sipping on hot tea, and watching lord of the rings.

mmmmm… doesn’t that sound delightful? 

let it snow. let it snow. let it snow!

i broke down.

Published by Meghan under Babble

for the past year or so, i have avoided having a donate button. i don’t like people to feel like they are obligated to click it and give money. i also don’t like people making a fuss or spending money on me. a simple email is plenty, makes me smile, and brightens my day. many a  people have asked me to put up said button, but i have refused time and time again.

with the podcast having so many issues on the free web host, i have had to make a decision. i’ve had to choose a new server. and the server that i have chosen for it’s reliability and quality service, unfortunately, charges a monthly fee. and the fee is the reason i put up the button.  so, just so you know, donations will be helping me pay for this service, update podcasting equipment as needed, and helping pay for fiber/books/classes to review (but honestly, i don’t see that one actually happening).

so i feel humbled… i feel a little dirty, honestly. but, it’s over there… on the side bar… taunting me… laughing at me… mocking me, because it succeeded in knocking me off of my free podcast pedestal.

i think i’m growing

Published by Meghan under Babble,knitting

you will all be impressed to know that i ripped the sweater out, and started all over again. when it came down to it, i guess i realized i would be unhappy with the final product. and being the error in question was going to be front and center, i couldn’t have that!  it would have been like the zit that is currently nestled on the tip of my nose…taunting….laughing….staring at me every time i look in the mirror! and while the mistake did happen on the first thing i cast on this new year, i don’t feel like it’s going to be foreshadowing my year as a series of mistakes and frogging. on the contrary, my new years eve was spent knitting in the comfort of my own home, casting on a project for myself, knit with wool i am proud of. sounds like it’s going to be a great year to me! :)
