My sewing this week isn't really sewing just yet. I have the tutorial for a passport cover, the special Tardis fabric, and The Boy's passport. In just two weeks my boy is traveling to Belize as part of a biological research course he's taking at his college. It's a really cool course and students design their own research project, collect data in the rain forest in Belize, and return home to finish up their papers and crunch their data.
This week I added a new book to my reading pile - Paleo Comfort Foods, Homestyle Cooking for a Gluten-Free Kitchen by Julie and Charles Mayfield. There is a bit of reading in it. The authors explain the Paleo diet and help you to assemble needed kitchen tools and ingredients. But it's primarily a cookbook - a very good cookbook!
- A 40 something mama meandering through life an 8 year old girl (the big girl) who is a ball of lightening and a 5 year old girl (the baby girl) who brightens our lives with her smiles. I'm grounded by my 40 something husband and partner (the hubster) whose quirky mannerisms brighten my days. Our family is rounded out with with an eclectic 21 year old boy-man (the boy) who I hardly ever right about now since he's off starting his own life.
I've been a single mama, married mama, divorced mama, career mama, SAHM, and WAHM. There was a short time of my life when I wasn't a mama, but that was a LONG time ago!
I hold an AA, BS, and MA and most say I'm wasting them by devoting my intellectual capabilities and energy in the nurture of the wee ones that I've been entrusted to raise, but there is nothing else I'd rather be doing these days. :)
I love hearing from readers, so please share your thoughts and leave comments, too!
