painting t-shirts

This looks like fun. I wonder how well it holds up in the wash.

I got out fall fabric the other day, and even made a small pile to give to Goodwill. Shocked? Me too. I do clean out all my possessions a few times a year in an attempt to minimalize clutter...but it's very, very rare for me to give up fabric or books. This is one of those rare times.

Daniel just woke up, I'm going to go be Mommy now. Happy times. =)

That's about all we're getting from Ike so far, a bit of drizzle and some clouds. I know Texas' danger has been all over the news, but that's waaaaaaay down south of us. In terms of distance, we're about as far from the coast as Little Rock or Memphis. So no worries for Dallas.

Daniel's having a good morning. He's helping to write this. Want to say hello, honey?


He pushed a lot more buttons than that, but they were all "enter" and "shift" etc.

David installed our new dishwasher yesterday evening. I'm fixing to run a fourth load from the no-way-to-wash-dishes pile. Almost all of our dishes were dirty, it was a huge mess. I do realize that you can wash dishes in the sink, but I really couldn't the last two days while the old one was unhooked--there was a leak. I did a couple of crucial pots in the bathroom sink and that was quite enough of dorm life for me.

This is all rather stream of consciousness. Anybody want to come over and knit or something?

video: best for last

or first, I guess, since this will go on top. It's the last upload though. There are new pictures on Flickr too.

video: Daniel making noises

This one's a classic. It was taken in early July, so Daniel would have been just over three months old.

video: Linus drinking water

Nitara used to try to shove his head into the relatively small opening of our water glasses. Linus is much more clever, as you'll see.

By the way, don't leave your water glass unattended at my house.

fixin to update

Well, I guess this would technically be an update, but I'm fixing to do a file dump from the picture and the video cameras, so...consider yourself warned.

Daniel's sleeping, it's overcast outside (read: no laundry today), the hot water in the kitchen is turned off (read: can't wash dishes. Shucks.) and so it's a good moment to clean out the cameras. Also, the new Knitty is STILL not up. Antsy antsy.
