NO BABY NEWS YET! Alison is running out of things to clean, organize and/or redecorate. In the past week: sewed baby bonnets, deep cleaned their van & the kids' car seats (along with installation of the infant seat), repainted the lower kitchen cabinets, finished the upstairs bathroom (Rusty & Rod had big roles in that job), Marie Kondo'd Rod's dresser drawers, and installed missing cabinet doors in their bedroom.
C'MON BABY, COME OUT! COME OUT!!
Meanwhile, the kids were over a couple of times over the weekend.
This one is about to become a Big Sister for the first time... and forever!
Here's a quick Ducky update!
I finished the first of the cushions, then put that project aside momentarily while I made curtains! We've decided to make a trial run close to home before we head way up north. A week from today, I'll be waking up in Ducky at a little lake-side county park campground less than 20 miles from home. Anyway, curtains jumped to the top of the To-Do List, and I was able to finish all but the kitchen & bathroom curtains... those windows are very small and can be easily covered.
While I did that, Kate wallpapered the bathroom!
This photo is actually taken through the bathroom window.
And we've added some artwork.
Kate found this tiny Bob Ross-esque original oil painting for 50¢ and it's just perfect.
But that's not all...
She also started putting down the new floor! It's the same tile that we're using in The Garden Room...
...speaking of which, Rusty started the prep for that!
And now, for the main part of this program!
I'm joining Kat & the Unravelers today to share what I'm knitting & reading.
It won't be long before it's too dark to take photos before I go to work. Thank goodness, my phone camera does pretty well in low light! That's the 9th & final row in-progress, with the 8th row for (more) visual interest. I guess I have three houses to go, then roofs & skies... it seems reasonable that sewing up should begin sometime over the weekend!
I'm sure hoping we have a baby by then!
I haven't been reading anything except the New York Times on Sunday mornings. That's about to change, though. I used languishing Audible credits to acquire The Women of Brewster Place, the next "Read With Us" selection from Carole, Bonny and Kym, and Hamnet, which has been highly recommended by both Bonny & Carole in recent posts.
One of these days, I'll turn some pages, too. The stack on my bedside table is nearly obscuring my alarm clock.
