1. I have been drinking lots and lots of herbal tea lately. I can't get enough. At least 2 cups a day. Green tea in the morning, chamomile at night, and Tazo passion in between. Passion is the best tasting tea I have ever had. It is super dark fuschia when brewed and super strong flavor-wise. Yum. I also always put a spoonful of raw local honey in my tea. I freakin' love this stuff. It is hard, and you scrape it out of the jar, and it has all these little flecks in it. Raw local honey is supposed to help with seasonal allergies. I am hoping because mine are terrible. The idea is that the bee pollen in the honey is supposed to desensitize you. I'll let you know come spring.
2. Josh almost burned the house down yesterday (I am totally exaggerating) by using a dishtowel as a potholder in the oven. The towel caught fire, but we put it out quickly. It was sort of Penny's fault (maybe) because our oven mitt has gone missing, and we're pretty sure she hid it somewhere. We went out to Marshalls later in the day, and I found super soft bamboo oven mitts. I bought two, and also two new dish towels. I didn't really need them, but I couldn't resist. They were super cute and fun for spring. Sorry, no picture, as they are in the wash right now.
3. Penny is learning animal sounds left and right (tiger, sheep, goat, monkey, dog, owl, snake, cow), and doing adorable pretend play like hugging her baby doll and "talking" on the phone. It is the cutest thing ever. I love this age!
4. We are in the final stage of renovations for our home. It involves a new sewing room for me (twice the size), which is so exciting. Should be move-in ready in a few weeks. It also involves getting rid of horrible wood paneling. Woo hoo!
Hope you all had a great weekend!
