My whole day was great because I woke up this morning to an email from the folks at One Yard Wonders telling me that the project I submitted is going to be in the next book!.  I’m really, really happy and excited about that.  I can’t wait for my new fabric to get here and to get started on my book sample!

I kind of can’t believe that tomorrow is Friday.  On the other hand I’m totally ready for the weekend.  We’re going strong with this week’s menu plan.  Four dinners down and one to go.  I even remembered to soak and cook the black beans for dinner tonight and tomorrow.  I’m always trying to foil my own plans by forgetting critical parts like that but not this time.

So, let’s see what else have we been up to… mostly the same old.  I have been thinking about a few new projects.  I took out a book about terrariums from the library because I’ve got 5 glass bowls that either need to be used or to go.  I think I have everything I need to make at least one terrarium.  Well, everything except the plants so we’ll give it a go I think.  I read something about someone making a terrarium and adding a plastic dino or lizard for a little excitement.  I think I’ll do that too and maybe it will live in Chase’s room.  The big question is where to get plants close by.  Any thoughts?

Meanwhile, I learned that I’ve been wasting my time coming up with fun crafts for Chase to do because, at the end of the day, she’s more than happy to play with an empty box.  First Chase played in it, then we drew all over it (you can catch a glimpse of my portrait of the infernal raccoon just there). Then Chase went to bed and the cats played with it.  Against my better judgment I played with them… aaand now my finger’s in a bandaid.  I like playing with my cats but I know better than to play with him by having him swat at parts of my body.  Stupid box clouded my judgment.
