Right Now…

 

sitting in my bedroom enjoying the cool air from our newly repaired air conditioner after 3 weeks in an 86+ degree home. 

 
sipping Peach Iced Tea that I discovered while out shopping yesterday. Yum!
 
loving my sweet husband of 8 years. We celebrated our anniversary with a much needed 2-day getaway last week. 
 
playing my husband in Words With Friends and LOSING every game. Not cool. But I will beat him one of these days.
 
nursing my 15 month old, who I thought was weaning, but now seems to be nursing with the frequency of a newborn. I found this blog post encouraging.
 
planning a baby shower on Saturday for a dear friend due to have her very own Little Man in July. I am going with a bow-tie theme inspired by this adorable baby shower.
 
trying out Motherease One Size fitted diapers on Little Man. With this Georgia heat, I thought it would be nice for him to have something a little more breathable to wear around the house. I found an AMAZING deal on Craigslist in which I purchased 17 diapers and 8 covers for $60!
 
reading Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. It is such a good book and I can’t believe I have never read it before. I am also reading The Organic Garden by Christine and Michael Lavelle. I am hoping to better educate myself on the subject of gardening to slowly turn my brown thumb green.
 
 
 
knitting the adorable Aviatrix baby hat with a gorgeous hand-dyed turquoise yarn by Madelinetosh. No, I am not pregnant. But I do hope to be again at some point in the future, and at my slow knitting speed, I figured that I’d better get a head start.
 
inspired by Ginny at Small Things. I recently discovered her blog and I feel like I have found a long lost friend. I am linking up with her Yarn Along today.
 
Sorry for my unplanned absence from this space (due to temporary heat insanity), but those are some of the things I have been up to.
 
I hope you are having a great week!
 
Always, 
 
Amanda

    I knitted up and loved the Avatrix pattern. Love the yarn you’re using for yours.

    I love the yarn and pattern so much that I think I am going to make a second hat in the next size. 🙂
