Baby has a little corner in our room, so we didn’t do any big nursery makeover. But after he arrived, we did build a bigger deck! It’s been so nice to enjoy it while we get a little morning sun on our faces. We hope to move the grill up there and get a little table and chairs soon! Can’t wait for a little bit cooler weather!
I am a washcloth machine over here. They are really easy to make over the course of a couple evenings, and don’t require too much concentration. I’m going to either have to start giving them away or stacking them up in corners of the house.
I planted a little pumpkin patch in the garden, with some acorn squashes mixed in. I had a fight with some critter who kept digging up the fresh dirt, but now the little sprouts are starting to grow! Fingers crossed for a couple plump pumpkins come fall time!
Can you believe its almost that time of year again? All these little Longhorns are off to new homes. My shop is on vacation for a little bit, but let me know if you need one before football season starts!
I am super surprised with how well our spinach is growing! I think it gets some shade during the hottest part of the day, but I’ve also been giving it fertilizer too. I harvest batches of leaves in the mornings, then soak them for a couple minutes in the salad spinner in some cold water and a dash of vinegar. I rinse and spin them a couple times, then let them dry a bit on a paper towel. I measure cupfuls into bags, then keep them in the crisper in the fridge. Our spinach stays much fresher for much longer than the store bought spinach!
I don’t really like wearing my hair down in the summer. I have such a mass of it, and it gets so hot. So braids and ponytails are my jam. I also really like headbands to keep hair out of my sweaty face while I’m outside. After seeing some cute headbands around, I decided to try to make a couple of my own. These ones are a tied variety, with a bit of elastic. Next I want to try a stretchier fabric! Do you know of any good headband patterns?
