What are you doing today?

Ever since the Olympics started, I am having trouble getting to bed before 1am. Really not cool since I have to get up at 7am with the boys, and I am one of those gals that needs a good 8 hours of sleep to function properly. Needless to say, I have become a bit of a zombie. This morning while Sophie was eating breakfast I sat down on the couch for a moment and had trouble staying awake, so I brought Sophie back up to my bed and tried to get her to take a nap with me. Only one of us fell asleep... guess who?!? Luckily my sister called at 10:30 and woke me up so I could take over the child rearing duties and let Elliott concentrate on work!

Now that I'm awake, the girls and I have been keeping busy with various activities:

Feeding the dog,


drawing pictures,


cutting paper (and ourselves)


and trying to figure out how to layout the quilt I have been working on.

(probably not!)

(maybe)

(most likely)
(don't you just love the versatility of half-square triangles?)

And later Emma wants to make a lemon cake for her baby, who happens to turn 2 today! :-)


What we haven't been doing is cleaning. Maybe tomorrow!
