It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.
Haus Meister and I took some time this week to finish old projects and accomplish some small ones that have been on the list for a while. Haus Meister’s projects involved power tools and paint, and I didn’t seem to get a picture of them this week. Here’s some other successes for Pictorial Edition #1:
1) I finished a nightgown for Princess! This is one that I had planned for the winter but ran out of time before Christmas. It had long sleeves, which I thought unnecessary for the summer months ahead. I guessed at the sleeve length and altered it, and it didn’t turn out bad, I think–it’s just not cap-sleeved like the first one I made. However, looking at it, I might try and copy it in a year or two for a Spring/Summer top for the girls. Maybe. The hem is wrinkled due to the fact that she had just tried it on.
2) Homemade vanilla extract is in the works. Haus Meister and I collaborated on this one. I need to shake the bottle daily for about 12 more days and it should be ready.
3) Grasshopper Fudge Cake. A new St. Patrick’s Day tradition. Picture removed for the sake of those readers who gave up desserts for Lent.
So to end with another picture, here’s a look at our homegrown Easter grass, one of the few “houseplants” we’ve been able to keep alive! 😉
