Short Ramblings...

Yesterday, the weather all of sudden became absolutely gorgeous, 60 degrees even with a ton of sunshine (great pictures for next Monday!), but today it is all gone again and it has been raining non-stop. 
The horses were a little crazy at Little Bit and we had to take our rider of the horse twice in one lesson. (that very rarely happens) The riders don't usually realize that something is wrong so that is good but our own hearts race just a bit harder and faster during those times...

Anyway, I just quickly wanted to show you my new dress in the making. It just needs to be hemmed and I want to add something fun to the front but haven't decided on that part yet. (maybe ric-rac or something like that or some fun buttons) It has a zipper in the back and this was the first time I was actually pleased with the final result of that so dreaded item...


It is not as retro looking as I had hoped but it is fun nevertheless.  The bottom half is black with tiny white polka-dots. The top is light grey with white stripes from 'Lechien'. For better detail of the fabrics please look again at my previous post...

And then I wanted to show our two new additions to our family. Meet Howard & Penny! (yes, from the Big Bang Theory)



It is so nice to hear their little chirpings in the house. We've bought a giant cage so there is room for at least one other pair. We'll wait a bit on that...

That's it for now. I am the sole parent this week: it is only day 2 and I'm already tired...  <wink> But, the girls are having a fun time together though. Yesterday we bought the birdies and today we're stopping by Basking & Robbins for an ice-cream treat. Tomorrow she wants to eat Ikea's mashed potatoes and meatballs from their frozen section. Easy peasy so that's fine with me!  {smile}

  1. I think the dress looks very retro! In the sixties I wore dresses quite like that! What memories it's awakening...
    Your new little birds look so cute!
