    Freaky smart for 2.

    I was in the kitchen trying to get dinner to the table when a moody and unhappily restrained (aka snuggled) Jack sat in his Daddy's arms.

    John said to Jack: Jack can I get a hug?
    Jack: No.

    John: Jack can I get a kiss?
    Jack: No.

    John: Jack do you want a tickle?
    Jack: Nooooo... (with big upset eyes)

    John: Jack can I get you to say 'no'?
    Not even looking at Daddy as if he's catching on he says "Uh-uhhh."

    *Dory and Daddy crack up at this point.*

    John: Jack can I get a kiss?
    Jack: No.

    Seriously. It's true. It happened. Good grief.

    365.54 Forced family time.


    365.54 Forced family time., originally uploaded by zzwhitejd.

    Stuck waiting for tow truck, 2.5 mi from the mechanic's. That's Jack bouncing around on my lap. Dory is behind me in her car seat still yelling about how she wants to be first to spot the tow truck.
    We were already on the way to the mechanic's for a few minor issues on John's truck. We all pulled off to get gas and the hose for the radiator blew on said truck, smoke rolling out from under the hood - therefore needing the tow for the last fraction of the drive.
    Can't make it up. You just can't.

    365.52 Whipping up a batch of Valentines

    Totally last second, and not a one of them actually hit the mail. However... I will say the whole 4 we made took about 4 hours. My nerves were SHOT after this crafty morning.

    Lucky recipients are:
    Lucy Caldwell
    LJ Kiser
    Great G-Ma Dorothy
    Um.... maybe we only got through 3.

    365.49 I'm going to need to talk to your supervisor...

    "This bill is just not correct."

    (That is my backup hard drive he's talking into.)

    A Day at Grandma Debbie's


    Table tent, originally uploaded by zzwhitejd.

    What could be better than playing under a tent converted table with boxes and blankets AND Grandma? Beats me. :)


    We headed over to Mom's now that she has left her job on Monday morning after the monthly food delivery. We needed out of the house and had a great time.


    Garden Help

    The kids helped pull corn stalks out of the garden until Jack was determined to pet the neighbor's cat and went tearing through a MASSIVE red ant mound. You remember the red ant attack of '08 with John, right? Could have been soooo much worse. We abandoned the garden after stripping Jack down to his skives right there in the back yard.


    365.48 Flashbacks

    Later, Jack found my (I think, maybe was Tricia's) old Casio PS-6080 and quickly found the demo tunes. Dory and Jack commenced bickering. Dory won. I almost got so lost in nostalgia that I brought it home... I DID come to my senses though. Into a 'toy for Grandma's house' box it goes. I can't believe the batteries still worked. They don't make things now like they used to.......

    O hai, Sweater-ish!


    O hai, Sweater-ish!, originally uploaded by zzwhitejd.

    (Sorry Becky - it's one of those awful knitting posts...)

    I have had 2 skeins of Applewood Malabrigo Chunky for a few months now - with nothing in mind for them other than I was in love with them and knew they needed to be used together. Searches across ravelry just wouldn't produce anything to actually produce with them and I have no experience with something 'large' so who knew how far I could get with them before running out...

    So, on the 31st, i sat down with needles and the first skein and cast on. Cast on what you ask? Um, I didn't know. I just cast on. And knit. and decided to throw in an increase here and there and kept knitting. Thought, oh, how nice those increases are lining up - very Zimmerman-ish. But then... well, this side is too long. Hummm, a button hole might help that then. Oh, shoot, I ought to make that a tab and bind off this bit to even it out.

    Then I stopped for 2 days.

    I had something in the shape of a rectangle that wrapped around my shoulders pretty nicely. 1/2 of my first skein was gone so I knew if I wanted to actually *make* something that I needed to go lacy.
    I asked Chrispy but she didn't know. Said what I knew all along, that it was time to flip through my stitch dictionaries. It's why I have them anyway...

    (TBC - Jack just woke up. There you go, Ba, a kid thrown in!)

    365.38 He's HOME!


    365.38 He's HOME!, originally uploaded by zzwhitejd.

    Can we just tell you how excited we all get when Daddy is on his way home from a business trip?

    Attack the Daddy!!!! Oh, the sheer level of excitement that awaits the unsuspecting guy is really pretty much unexplainable.
