Mother's Day Peace Vigil


this is a pretty powerful statement, and our dear friend Auntie Felt turned us on to this awesome CodePink project going for Mother's Day. So Desi and I have decided to join the movement. We have knitted a small number of pink squares to be a part of the "cozy" that will be hung on the white house fence for the Mother's Day Vigil.

Our squares are done and headed for the mail stream today!

there is still plenty of time for you to get involved too!
The squares are very simple and I am sure there is some yarn in your stash that you just have no clue what to do with!

Not a knitter but find this message resonates strongly for you??? Not a problem!
Follow the link and take the mother's day pledge.

whirlwind trip


we have just been blown back into town after a super quick camping trip out to joshua tree. Had to sneak this trip in before it got to hot out there! It was absolutely lovely even though we froze our butts off at night. Oh man was it could and windy! Brings to mind the sundowners trip for those of you who accompanied us for that.

The highlights included glorious rocks for climbing and all of the spring flowers still in bloom!
I tried to figure out how to get a shot of all the stars but you will just have to imagine it.
They were amazing!

we also enjoyed an impromptu jam session. Everyone got in on it. The kids made up songs that the grown-ups had to sing and play.

yes, the mustache is still in full effect and oh my isn't it getting fancy!
shh don't tell, but i think it is getting kinda cool!

We are all sunburned and wind chapped, tired and dirty!
and extremely happy!

easter recovery day

today really should be voted another holiday unto itself! I here by dub the day, National Easter Recovery Day! My children are both toast ( and thankfully still asleep!) The younger is by far the worse for wear though. Sugar, sadly, is not his friend. He didn't even get that much and he is still a mess. I blame all the corn syrup in everything and If I see that pro corn syrup ad on the tv today, I might throw something! Good thing i have outlawed the tv:)

so beyond the sugar roller coaster, we had a nice day. Easter baskets were kept simple and sweet and loved by both of them.

Best of all, I was able to knit my heart out most of the day!
