rain, tea, & babble

i took a photo of manlyman on his way to the office this morning.


ok, you have me - manlyman doesn't work in an office, & i wasn't out of bed at the crack of dawn today to take a nap, let alone a photo. we have had some wild rain this week though. if we get another storm tonight, our backyard will surely flood - in which case i shall have to sneak next door, & steal borrow rubelin's canoe.
the knitting is coming along nicely. i don't think i'd be doing so well if it weren't for soap. she's been ever so helpful, (patient) & has been quick to offer advice (when she spies me making a mess of things.) thehobbit loves that i'm knitting a blanket for his owl cage, but when i showed him the almost-finished blanket, he informed me it needed to be bigger. "pig needs to wrap up in his blanket." pig is quite the picky owl.
if i have not yet explained: pig is a stuffed animal. in our home stuffed animals are very real. he believes that when we are asleep, or away from home, they all come to life. i believed that too when i was little (i may still believe it at times, but i'm not admitting anything.) there was a book that i loved... i wish i could remember the title. it was a family of dolls in a dollhouse. they came to life at night. there was a cherry bomb somewhere in the story as well. if you know this book, please tell me its name.
not much else is going on in creative-land. i added a lake, & stepping stones to thehobbit's forest play set. all that is left is a fish, & a bush (his requests.) the patchwork quilt is still in want to mode, as are the curtains. oh, i did get a few gnomies made on tuesday night. that's it though. i had intended on getting to the next stage of the bizzie once christmas was over, but i think i'll let it wait until after thehobbit's birthday.
the party's theme changed by the way. i allow one change per year, (did i already babble about this?) then all is set in stone. it's still a tea, but now it's winter faery tea. as there are only two weeks until the party, i have to say i'm finally glad he refused to have an actual party with all his friends. a tea for 4 kids i can do last-minute. easy peasy. i think.
mmmmm time to go. a certain manlyman just sat down next to me. he's too cute to ignore.
~peace.
