Satisfaction is...

~Watching your daughter take a fancy to cooking and baking.

She made us all lunch the other day, all by herself.
 Then she made cookies just because.
 ~Finishing the 'table doily' that I was making up as I went along.

~ Contemplating the border of the stripey blanket.
Something simple.
No need for competition with the stripes.
Now we are just waiting for the weekend to get here so that we can experience slightly warmer temps.
50's and 60's are getting a little boring.
And aggravating.
Low 70's would be exemplary.


  1. I'd like to borrow your daughter. That lunch dish looks pretty yummy and you have no idea how much I love homemade cookies. Seriously, can I just take her for the summer???? ;-)

    Love your table doily. Are you going to write it up? You should.

  2. Looks yummy!
    I want an adorable budding chef in my home!
    Love the table doily, the colors are awesome:)

  3. Everything looks so wonderful. Congrats on having a budding chef in your home. Perhaps you'd like to trade weather. We're burning up over here and it's seriously humid. Big poofy hair humid. lol

  4. oh, yum! i am very much in love with those stripes. a quick google turns up some interesting crochet edging patterns. most are pretty fancy, but there are some fun ones too. good luck!

  5. How exciting to see your daughter grow. I remember when my daughters started to take an interest in the kitchen. They came up with some really good things to eat.
