Another Week in Photos

Ahh … Friday, how are you? Me? Oh I had to work at 6 this morning. I know that is regular for a lot of folk, just not me. Not for the last 4 years. Now I am dragging. Anyhow, that is not what you are here for. Let’s look at a little of the happy this week, shall we?


Oh me? I’m GT4936 on instagram if you wanna follow along.
Remember this mug from my Mug Swap package? Well this is what it looks like when it is half full. It also looks kind of half asleep. Which was quite fitting at the time. I made myself some hot chocolate, complete with small marshmallows, instead of going to bed. It’s okay really.
First, for those of you who read my blog, and can guess who will be the recipient of this handmade Christmas gift ….. please don’t tell. You can however tell me, how you feel about it. Think she will like it? Don’t know who it’s for, would you like it? (I’m pretty sure she doesn’t read my blog. I’m actually convinced she doesn’t even know I have one)


This was the first time that I ever embroidered something, and I was pretty impressed with myself. I am sure if you are a professional then it’s not that great, but I am me. I was just happy I could write it nice enough. Nice enough being that I felt it didn’t look like a Kindergartner wrote it. I have pretty crappy writing.

I don’t pull this often, but it’s the season right? I put on a movie and gave the kids snacks so that I could make dinner.




Don’t judge.
And then there was dinner.


For the record, I am never making Vegan Mac and Cheese again. Why? I just don’t like it. I don’t want to eat it.


This time I added kale to it hoping that would make me love it more. It didn’t. I still hate it. Kale did however ensure that my kids, who normally can’t get enough of this, hardly ate any at all. Result, I will never make it again. Thanks.
We received this as a gift from a friend for K2’s birthday. The kids love it! Like they want to fight over it (why wouldn’t they).


I tried using it with K1 for some letter writing. It’s eco friendly! Terrible idea. She saw K2 doodle every where and she wanted to do the same thing.
Have you heard of Bitstrips? It’s an app, go find it. Thank me later.


I hope this one makes you laugh. It should. Or rather, it makes me laugh and I made it. Sometimes I’m silly.


What were you up to?
life rearranged

  1. I think the embroidered writing is lovely, good job! Thanks for the warning about vegan mac & cheese. Not that I would ever have tried to make it, but now I know I definitely won’t. 🙂 The kids in front of the TV watching Christmas movies while you make dinner? That is so all right. I always thought I would be the mom who wouldn’t use a TV as a babysitter. But then I had kids. Sometimes moms just need to do what we need to do to stay sane. A sane mom is a good thing. Have a great week! (I’m almost done with the book… it’s taking me longer because I want to journal while reading it since I’m going to be parting with it.) xoxo

      I couldn’t agree more, “A sane mom is a good thing.” I am not in a rush for the book at all. Whenever your ready. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. I love your homemade gift, it is beautiful. 🙂
