Gosh, it's been so long since I've blogged. My dear friend Ellen goes in spurts on her blog, but I just got caught up today. I have so much to blather on about, it's hard to figure out where to start. Facebooking seems a bit easier. Takes less time and gets the point across. This blog has become less about Max and more about his mom. I might just need to create my own blog someplace else...
I do need to get some other pictures updated; we have city garden plot and we are so excited for it, we planted last weekend and i'm nervous we didnt start our seeds in time for this super short Minnesota growing season, apparently it's not uncommon to not have a season long enough to grow tomatoes Oh the HORROR! so this weekend i think we'll buy some plants at the farmer's market just to make sure. We have had some great moments there with Max, and a bit of a challenge, either he's too tired from needing to nap or sleep, or too hungry or too revved up to sit still and dig in the dirt... and making sure he doesn't step on the rows! The last thing I need to remember to bring is my camera, so we have captured NONE of it so far.

My sewing machine had finally fed me up enough that I sent it away last week to get tuned up. The guy isn't sure that you can get parts for it anymore c.1977, so we'll see what happens. I bought some ROCKIN fabric when we were in Seattle, I'm totally bummed that I finally went into this fabric store on the last day. I bought some great fabric, the woman said, "you're aware this is 20$/yard?" "oh yes indeed; you see i have a very limited selection of fabrics from a small Jo-Anns and Hancock fabrics". I am definitely going to make my planned skirt out of muslin just as Grandma Irene would have wanted me to. You know how sometimes after you rip out the seam for the last time, you begin to get tired of the piece and your fabric? Not this fabric. Can't wait to show it.

ok, tis nough for now.
