Wonderings on a Saturday...

* Why we only have 3 forks. When we moved from Flagstaff, we had at least 15. That means we've lost at least 12 . Where did they go?

* What to do with these pumpkins. Grace and Adam each planted a pumpkin seed about 3 weeks ago. And I guess I didn't think it the whole way through. Because now they are growing like crazy, and I know that they are going to keep growing, and I don't know what to do with them. We can't plant them outside, and I don't really think they will last long in these pots. Hmmm... (As I was downloading these, I just realized Grace was eating hers AGAIN! Ugh!)

* Quilting. I really, really want to make a quilt. A patchwork one. But I've never done it before. I've got the squares cut out, and I'm ready to sew it together. But, I'm wondering what to do AFTER I stitch the top together. I'm probably going to bring it to to my sis-in-law Danyel and beg for help. :)

* Why I couldn't fall asleep until 2:30 last night.

* Why both Adam and Grace woke up at 4:00 in the morning this morning, rearin' to go.

* Why I'm not exhausted.

* Why one of Grace's feet is so much larger than the other. And, I know everyone's feet aren't exactly the same. But, her left foot is literally a size larger than her right. And I usually buy her shoes a bit big, so it normally works out okay. But, now her left church shoe doesn't fit at all, and her right is a bit loose. And I can't even cram it in, so she's going to need new church shoes. Darn! :)

* Would Payless let me buy shoes that are different sizes? Hmmmm...

* Why Adam is so... I don't know the word. So, since he was 3, he has been obsessed with Hot Wheels. Crazy about them. Then, literally, on Christmas last year, he completely changed and was all about the Transformers. Overnight. Didn't care about Hot Wheels. And then last week, all of a sudden, it's Legos. He's obsessed. It makes it incredibly difficult to buy toys on sale for him for future birthdays, when he changes so much. And his birthday is coming up, so I'm not sure what to do...

* What IS that word? It's bothering me a lot. Fickle? Nope. Not it.

* Why I can't possibly EVER get a normal picture of these two together! Alone, they're great. Together, who knows.

Happy weekend, everyone!

I have really been wanting to make a quilt. My mom even got me all the precut squares and everything. I just have never done it. But I really hope to some day.

Kristi said...

I could help with quilting. I just use a flat sheet for the back. Are you wanting to tie the quilt or actually quilt it?

Amanda said...

I'm with you on the quilting. Maybe we should have a quilting bee sometime!

What size shoes does Grace need? Maybe we have something.

Kristi-That's a good idea to use a sheet. I think I'll probably tie it, but I'm kind of lost there, too. I've tied quilts before with others, but never a whole one on my own, you know? I'm not sure where to start.

Amanda-That would be fun!

Oh, Amanda, Grace is in a size 6, but her one foot is bigger. So, who knows. I think I'm going to go to Payless today and just ask them what I should do... Mike's feet are different sizes, too, but he normally just deals with it. :)
