I finished the curtains for my kitchen window Monday evening.  They make me so happy!

There was just enough fabric left over to cover a couple of cushions for the living room.

 There is a new lover of kombucha in the house.  He goes around
telling me the water in his sippy-cup is "'bucha".

We've missed Nigella's cooking episodes so much, ever since youtube began their copyright enforcement and they disappeared from the web, so our thrill was really quite great when our very own copies of the episodes came in the mail.  Oh how we have enjoyed them!

A warm & sunny day lunch salad experiment.  Oh for yummy.
Rice noodles in tamari & white vinegar, slivers of green pepper & green onion,
 a leftover whiskey teriyaki steak cut in strips.
. . . . .

 The kids and I were at it again baking this morning. 
They are such good helpers if I just slow down enough to have them help me!

 ~Grinding last year's dried Rosemary and rooting cuttings for more in the windowsill~

 Mini popovers for lunch

Cinnamon coffeecake for breakfast

Greta and Josiah love their new beds from their Great Grandpa Bob.  They were so thrilled when he brought them and set them up, and love so much to crawl into their very own spots for sleeping time.  They even have fancy new sheets to go on their beds. 

Grandpa even brought a beautiful new dresser to go with their beds.  What a wonderful help it will be!  All of it made with his own hands in his woodshop--what treasures.

What a precious gift those beds and the dresser are! They are heirlooms...beautiful craftsmanship!

You always make me nostalgic for when I was a young mommy. *Sniff* :) I think I'm getting very interested in making the kombucha tea. Can you recommend a place where I can learn how? Some of the internet sources were a little weird.
