fall fashion....

in the southern hemisphere, of course!

gramma and i are REALLY excited...this just might be our biggest break yet! if we can get enough hat lovers to vote for gramma's hat buy april 6th they will feature it in the Fall Fashion Guide!


that's it...i've had it!

..last week i promised you i would spare you the details of my coffee woes, but i've changed my mind....i'm gonna give it to you plain and simple.


let me 'splain...the carafe is broken...and well...

actually, i just show you...that would be even better.


"what's wrong with that?", you say.

well, if you look reeeeallly close..there ain't no coffee in that there measurin' cup....this is how a mother of small children should not have to start her day...

yes......i know the question you're asking right now.

yes, you're right....

i am seriously standing there holding the spout open with a fork.

just thought i'd share.

oh, and i'd like to give credit to my 8yr old for taking such fine pictures...thanks kiddo!

spring photo shoots....

are just beginning!

yesterday was the start of a series of photo shoots i have planned. it was a little chilly out there, but my model kept a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye the entire time! she did have a hard time keeping her tongue in her mouth though ;o)

here are are a few of my favorite shots...

gramma harv has all of these hats in her shop...check 'em out

its friday!

and fridays in our house mean no meat...especially during lent! actually, it means stations of the cross and then a soup supper....i'm bringing the usual, with a little twist...corn chowder, and homemade bread....

i've been experimenting with sour dough. as a matter of fact, i "caught" my own yeast! i have white bread down pretty well now, ands its time to start adding things that actually make it kinda healthy...no, not purple or green food coloring, though it is a favorite around here! how about some flax seed and wheat germ? thats what i added yesterday...good stuff

nothing new

the kids helped themselves to breakfast this morning...yes, even the two yr old monkey...she can't reach the cereal bowls, but the snack containers in the bottom drawer seem to work quite well!?!

i guess that's what happens when mama tries to blog with one hand and hold the fussy babe in the other....

forget the coffee...i'll spare you pictures of the two cup measuring glass that i've been using for the last two weeks, because i broke the carafe....and this morning the filter slipped and the little hole got clogged...mmmm! crunchy coffee!!!

don't worry...the new pot is in the mail...along with some gourmet coffee! you can expect a post about THAT!

oh! gramma harv is bringing over some of her hats this afternoon....i think she has a couple new ones for us...i'll keep you posted!
until then...

i leave you with the monkey.
