Little Miss Four

久久免费网观看Technically, she’s not four until tomorrow

but Jac was ok with celebrating early. 


She was a little annoyed she had to eat dinner first - her favorite pizza; the horror! -

 Such silly faces

and couldn’t go straight to the cake and presents

 
but she seemed pretty pleased once she got to her gifts.


Our solution to the birthday-candle-in-the-age-of-Covid dilemma 


was keeping them totally separate. It worked!


This was Jac’s first time cutting her own birthday cake


and the inside was every bit as pretty (and delicious) as I’d hoped.  


In keeping with Jac’s requested rainbow theme, I made her two rainbow pillowcases (one with bonus frogs because “green is my favorite color!”) 


and a rainbow unicorn blanket 


using the super easy Missouri Star self-binding blanket tutorial. (Note to self: pink fabric cut 32” square and stripes cut 42” square)

Rainbow Cake

Jackie wanted a rainbow cake for her birthday on Sunday,


so that’s what we made. 


Jac mixed up all the colors herself,

 
including one she affectionately referred to as “baby poop brown.” 


I was afraid the individual colors would blend together during baking,


and Jac would be disappointed,


but they came out beautifully,


even the baby poop brown. 


True story - Jac has never liked licking the spoon or beaters when we cook, unlike Leia and Leanne who loooove doing that. (Me too!)


That changed today when I talked Jac into taking just a teeny tiny taste of cake batter and she discovered what she’d been missing.


Bad grandma. :)


She liked the icing even more.


You can hear her thinking, “Grandma, I have NO IDEA how that hole got there.”

Happy almost birthday, silly girl.

Baker Boy

Donovan helped me bake for the first time today.


He loves “cooking” with his mom so he was super excited when we started getting out the supplies.


And he really gets into his work. 


At one point, I was sure there was more flour on him than in the bowl.


Despite that, and my messing up the second rise time, the bread turned out great. This skillet bread recipe is a definite keeper. (Note to self - remember to buy finely ground sea salt for next time.)

Pottery #4

I was going to title this the “last" pottery class but there’s a very good chance hubby will take more courses, once COVID fades and in-person classes resume.

 His 4 pieces and my 6 - right-side up and up-side down.

Tonight we glazed the pieces our instructor bisque-fired this past week. 


It was a bit frustrating, mainly because the glaze in the buckets looks nothing like what the finished color will be. And because we had no clue what we were doing. :)

 Blue arrows are his pieces; red are mine

Here’s hoping our pieces a) survive the 2,165 degree kiln firing, 

 
and b) look decent. Useable would be a bonus.

 My favorite bowl cracked during the bisque fire.

We’ll know in a week.

Barn Quilt #3

We took barn quilt #3 out to Vickie’s house today, so now I can show it here.


 Vickie’s on the left, mine on the right

Vickie loves Americana so I was pretty sure she would like this (she did!) 


And I *might* have purchased another 40 or so bottles of paint. Oops?? I’m really enjoying this barn quilt thing.

Father’s Day

Happy Father’s Day, y’all! It’s not nearly as much fun when we’re being responsibly socially-distant. Here’s hoping we can all be together next year.

Best Almost-Friends

He follows her everywhere,



doing everything she does.


Until it all suddenly goes south, 


and I have to put them to play in separate rooms. 


 Sibling-cousins and best almost-friends.
