It's no secret that I am slightly addicted to sewing. In fact, these last 2 weeks I have actually dreamed about sewing. I would dream about cute things to make and sewing perfect lines. Then one night I had a nightmare, I back-stitched all over the place, making a big mess of fabric. I woke up all panicked and was instantly relieved that it was all a dream. I am so addicted to sewing that I value everything against how much a yard of fabric is. Example, today on my grocery trip I threw a box of cereal into my cart and thought, "That cereal is $2 dollars, or the equivalent to 1/3 yard of fabric." I also thought, "I could buy a pound of shrimp for $7.99 OR skip buying the shrimp and get almost 2 yards of fabric!" So I skipped the shrimp. They still had their tails on anyways - I don't do tails. Yuck.
Sewing is so much fun to me! I'll keep doing it for a while :)
This week's stuff on the girls:
Selina shocked me the other day by reading Go Dog Go! Although the bulk of what she read was from pure memory of hearing the story a million times - she read 43 pages with out any help! She is thriving on words and how to spell them. She said to me the other day,
"Mommy!!!! I know how to spell DVD!!!!"
"Oh really?" I said.
"Yes!" she replied, "It's spelled D-V-D!"
"You're right!!!!" I congratulated her :)
Now that would be a simple word (if you can call it that), yet just about every where we go Selina will find real words that she knows. Makes her Mama proud!
Keira has recently been dubbed "The Queen of Gross". She lives up to that title almost daily. Today, she randomly licked the door of the bathroom stall at Target. That's right licked - tongue on door. WHY WHY WHY???? WHY does she do these things?
One of my favorite Keira phrases from the last week is "It waining on the wingtet" (It's raining on the swing set) !
Today we went out for dinner (since I didn't buy shrimp, I had nothing to make!). After dinner Keira was kinda getting bored so we went outside to check out the scenery. I sat at a bistro table while Keira walked around the front area of the restaurant smelling flowers. Every so often a car would go by, then Keira would stand on the side walk and lift her shirt up as to flash the occupants of the vehicle. Not cool! She thought it was funny though.
It finally rained today and brought the temperatures down to bearable. Selina, Keira, and I stood on our deck in the rain and had a good 'ol time.
Between the rain and the humidity, a nice dense fog settled on the glistening green grass this evening. I got to gaze at the fireflies lighting up amidst the fog as the sun set tonight - one of the most magical things I've ever seen.
I hope instead of dreaming about zig zag stitches tonight, I'll think of the fireflies instead :)
