wow, i think this is the longest i’ve ever gone between posts since i started blogging! maybe i needed a break? maybe i’ve been hanging on by a thread for 6 weeks straight? maybe i can never get near the computer since my nine-year-old whiz kid won’t stop oh, i don’t know, making his own 3D computer video games. i swear that kid is gonna be the next bill gates (social awkwardness included). aside from several online programs sky uses, pants even taught him a few things on a 3D animation computer program he uses at work, and within minutes sky was amazing us with stuff he came up with.
anyway, things are finally back to normal around here, whatever that looks like. all i know is that in the backyard, project ‘patty o’ is full steam ahead – we just bought a big ole’ grill and a sunshade and chairs, and pants is hard at work in the garage building us an outdoor couch and coffee table. after the outside stuff is done, he is also going to make us a freestanding kitchen island/storage cabinet with a butcher block top, which will definitely come in handy since our counter space is now so limited. our goal is to have everything done by july 4th – i will post pictures when everything is completed!
oh, lately i’ve also been doing a lot of this:
and i cut my hair. again. i know! but i just need easy right now. and i think i accidentally time-traveled to the seventies in this picture. and the kids have been up to their usual tricks…sky’s still into fantasy drawing, this time of the video game variety (of course):while sharkey’s drawings are a tad more on the realistic side:
i do love my creative boys. all three of them.
a few choice meals…
breakfastgluten-free waffles made with my new waffle maker!
sharkey’s new favorite all-fruit smoothie: oranges, mangos, banana, apple.
i feel like my tummy has fully repaired itself, so i am easing up on my dairy ban. welcome back, my beloved greek yogurt…
guess we’ve been on a soup kick…
(this is actually a picture of sharkey’s favorite lunch.)
lots of salad around here lately…
…made ten times better by the addition of italian dressing and some good blue cheese:and what’s the point of eating a potato if it’s not loaded?
