Check out my Nick's blog!

As most of you know, Nick is on his way to Nairobi as I type this. So exciting!  Keep up with him through his blog.
I miss him already... but what a great "problem".   I'm so happy that I get to share him with Africa!!
I love him so much.

He's so crafty!

My best friend helps me sew!  Together we made some bean bags for my client at school.  He is working on colors and needs much incentive to get them right... who doesn't like bean bags?!?
Hand stitched.
Sweet guy.
I love stacks of felt!
Happy Monday, friendlies!

A little birdie told me.

What do you say, little birdie?
Oh, yeah?
No-Pants-Regan is living up to his name?   
The "bird whisperers" love Happy.   

Blake isn't surprised.
Regan and Happy! BFF.

It's still fall. I still love it.

I love fall decor!  I haven't had much time to devote to the season, but here's what is on my table.... plus grad school books, papers, highlighters, my laptop... Unfortunately it's also my dumping ground when I come in.  I'm working on that!
Another tribute to my favorite fruit... the elusive Honey Crisp Apple.  My clinical supervisor at school said that it was developed at her alma mater in Minnesota.  
She is so proud (rightfully so).

Apples for carmel sauce dipping. Mugs for cider. Pumpkin for roasted seeds!
This fall I roasted some seeds for the first time.  I will ALWAYS do this to celebrate the season.  Too good.

A few friends celebrating the season!

Happy Sunday, friends. You are nice to have around.

He wants to wipe your face!

I thought I should let you know, that being the high tech couple we are, my Nick and I have recently  designed a robot that will dry hands, scrub faces... and even wipe up messes. You know, all those dirty chores around the house that no one seems to want to do.  Here he is!  

I know I know.   Another grandma hobby!  At least this one will help the environment.  Nick and I are trying to use cloth napkins instead of paper.  YEAH!  Baby steps, I tell ya. Oh, and to clarify, I saw a boxy little line drawing of a robot online somewhere and tried to draw something similar on a napkin.  So, props to the person whoever designed the original guy. It was a stamp maybe?  Not sure.  I just had to have him stitched on my vintage napkins.  He is a daily reminder of all my friends that run on batteries, eh, um... pacemakers.  :)  Love you robot friends.

I love ihop!
