And this is why all the cats were outside while we ate. 🙄

The moment of truth: definitely good with room for improvement. The edge was flaky, the filling was spicy, and next time I’ll put a bit less salt in the crust since our butter is salted.

We decided on a lunch time feast this year. M smoked pork shoulder, turkey breast, and carrots (😻). We also had fried sweet potato, steamed green beans, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, Hawaiian rolls, & Z made us a fruit salad. All the leftovers are put away, the dishwasher is being loaded, and I’m taking a break to digest before whipping cream for the pumpkin pie. Z just got out Star Wars chess. #thankful

So far, so good! This is my first pastry crust from scratch unless I did it a long time ago and blocked out the horror. 😹

I will never get sick of these two snuggling up together for a snooze. #cutiesnowcatholeslater

Sam & this gray cat are howling at each other through the glass door with a kitten audience. This has been going on 5 min.

The messy part of making a buckwheat hull pillow.

1💬

M is getting a new buckwheat hull pillow very soon. This is good because the old one has gotten very smelly. It should also leak less dust because it is double thick broadcloth vs. single thick muslin. 😹

Confession time: I’ve never seen Parks & Rec. It is my intention to remedy this in the near future.

When one gets awakened by a tussle between the husband and the biggest cat and potential feline vomiting at 4am for a SECOND day in a row, one might as well sew some effing snaps.

Finished stitching the school child dresses for Babes In Toyland! They still need snaps but they’re super close to finished and will be staying at the dance studio tonight!

I’m supposed to be sewing right now.

Yay for using up darn near all the Hammy goodness of “History Has Its Eyes On You” on Cowlexander Hamilton.

The solution to taking Ezra off the counter & table 354,728 times during cooking & eating: Stick him in the baby sling.

So this happened today. Now to play iTunes chicken to see if I can get it set up before Z goes to Hip Hop.

It has been years that Z has been asking and today was finally the day we ordered fried ice cream at Zorro’s.

Because we don’t have at least 5 rooms full of furniture. 🙄

Scene: Target kids section, tween: is that for you or for me? Me: Depends on who it fits. Tween: it’s totally for you. Me: yep.

Thanks last night me! After using my pumpkin vanilla sugar scrub in the shower, I smelled like pie and wanted to eat pie.

2💬

It is sugar scrub day here. Three orange vanilla and one each of rosemary, pumpkin vanilla, and orange clove. It was completely coincidence that the pumpkin scrub made it into the pumpkin container. 🎃

Caturday afternoon nap time!

First dress done save hem & hardware! Holy cats that’s a lot of sewing curves. #babesintoyland #dancemom #costumeteam

I took the wee beasties out in the backyard today because they were driving me batty inside the house. I don’t trust them enough to be out without a human yet but hopefully it will keep them calmer inside if they get some field trips.

First dress outer layer is cut out! #babesintoyland #dancemom #costumeteam

This is my day today. I’ll be cutting this bolt into 3yd sections to wash & press for School Children dresses ala Madeline. #babesintoyland #dancemom #costumeteam
