Pretty heirloom tomatoes!
After the last couple of weeks of birthday celebrations and good times in general, Robert and I are sort of dieting this week. When I say "sort of" I mean he's actually seriously dieting, and I usually end up going along with whatever he does because I'm like a child and can't make food.. haha. Anyhow, I took pictures of the dinner process last night, and whenever Robert writes the text to go along with them, there will be a new recipe on our food blog! I'll let you know when that happens.
I have a secret love for low-light photos.
Yesterday evening I started decorating with a few of my birthday presents. This is a little cabinet in our dining room where we store miscellaneous kitchen items which don't live in the kitchen. And you probably can't see the framed photo from this view, but remember this print I won? It's finally found its new home!
Ignore the wrinkles!
And finally, here's my first finished embroidery project!! I know steam isn't brown, but it made sense at the time! What do you think? I think I'm going to iron this and mail it to my mom. She'll appreciate it; moms love that sort of thing, right?
So, that's what I've been up to. I was actually excited about doing laundry this morning so I would have some things to iron... specifically because I wanted to do an iron-on pattern and begin a new embroidery project! And that's exactly what I've been doing all afternoon. I think I may have reached a new level of housewivery. Do I get a reward?
With the new project, I've been taking pictures of each step. I was planning to do a tutorial post today, just a simple how-to about beginning a project and the easiest stitches... but I don't think I'll have enough time before Robert gets home. Do you know what's going to happen as soon as he gets home? The Beatles: Rock Band. YES! (Of course - he pre-ordered it and it was delivered today- If this game had come out when I was about 10 years old, I would have died from happiness. My sister and I had a major case of Beatlemania in the mid-90s.)
But expect a tutorial tomorrow! I promise I'll do it!
