Things I'm Doing - Year of Making 7-14/365

Just because I haven't been documenting it here every day doesn't mean I haven't been making. It's likely all the time spent making that's prevented me from documenting it here.

So, an update:


I made myself a bullet journal, following the lead of Kim Werker, again. If I seem a bit fangirl about her, well, it's because I am. She's an awesome human, and has a new book out called Make it Mighty Ugly. Get you some. (I will be, as soon as the giant sucking sound of all the money leaving my account for Imp's school tuition fades into background noise again.)


Worked some more on Imp's blanket. It can no longer be mistaken for a scarf.


On day nine, I made this photo of the world's most beautiful child* on his first day of first grade.


Along with back to school, I got back to the routine of meal planning, a weekly grocery shop, and putting proper meals on the table after a summer of beach picnics and bike rides to concession stand french fries and other delicious fun and unregretted shenanigans. Dinner on day ten:

Roasted lemon chicken thighs with cranberry almond couscous.

Must remember to post the recipe at my dairy-free food blog!


For what feels like the first time in ages, I made some music on my guitar.


Worked some more on Imp's blue blanket. Progress is slow, but steady.


I made this school year's first batch of granola bars for school lunches and snacks.

Which brings us to today.


More granola bars (I like to have a stash of them in the freezer), dairy-free banana bread, and tonight's dinnner:

Vegetarian chili for all my friends!

Now I think I'll work on Imp's blanket some more.

*Your mileage may vary.


Things I'm Doing - Year of Making 6/365

Today's making: more of Imp's blanket. Starting to see real progress on it, and I love that Imp checks in every day and holds it up to his face to see how soft it is. I can't wait until it's finished.


Tomorrow will be all about meal planning and cooking ahead. Granola bars, banana bread, veggie chili, and whatever else I can think of to get us through the first week of school that starts on Tuesday. All summer we've been kicking it freestyle with picnic-style dinners and eating out. Time to get back to routine. 



Things That Are True - List the Ninth

Recently I cleaned out a closet and unearthed a yarn stash that would be embarrassing in its immensity if it wasn't so awesome to have all that yarn. But I really should put at least some of it to use.

In the spirit of my year of making, which is much on my mind at the moment:
