Thursday smatterings

leftovers and photos from yesterday's birthday dinner in the city are calling to me...

fultons on the river

carrot cake

frozen custard is so much creamier than ice cream.


this website is so amazing. I might even pay for it beyond the free trial...

thinking about decorating a lot right now...a big boy room for Alex, revamping the nursery, hanging pictures in the basement (and really the rest of our house too...)--much inspiration here and here and (of course) here.

thinking even more about knitting. Ravelry is so amazing, and whether it has led to an explosion of awesome, easily-available patterns or just opened my eyes to them all, I now have about 1,000 patterns in my queue and my next-up-to-knit changes every day. Current favorite is this, followed closely by this and this (though I'm not sure I have the patience to knit a garment out of sock yarn). I'm working on this right now with a skein of Cascade 220 in brown, gifted to me by Alex this Christmas (with help from daddy of course). Slow going; I guess I've been sewing too much!

and finally, I (finally again!) mailed off some bee blocks the other day.
