why i love coffee and other ramblings

i don't know if it was too much coffee or the 80 degree sunshine outside, but i felt so motivated the other day that i completely cleaned out my closet of fabric/yarn/patterns/junk, organized it, planned a fabric/yarn swap with some friends (wanna come? email me!), downloaded some free patterns and started sewing again! oh the joy!!! i will post the finished pieces soon (i need some buttons first!) it feels so good to finally be organized with that stuff!

so...with the love of coffee comes the problem of hot weather and hot drinks...therefore, i am a HUGE fan of the iced coffee. don't care if it is too american...just love it. so i brewed myself a pot of yummy coffee, dumped in a bit of sugar and milk and the refrigerated it for a bit...had a glorious day!

on other news...
we spent sunday in washington, dc. what a great day. it was 85, hot and sunny! we loaded up the car, packed some pb&j and hit the road. two hours later we are in the national building museum, home that day of the Smithsonian Womens' Committee National Craft Show. we were visiting our friend, Rebekah Diamantopoulos...amazing stuff. after fun with the D family, we headed over to the mall at the smithsonian for snacks at a fountain and a fun ride on the carousel...

she makes me so happy!!!


so...after a long ride home, too expensive bottled water and a really wonderful day, we all came home tired tired tired.

except for eli. he has not been sleeping well....

maybe i need to lay off the coffee....uh oh.
