life around here

Well, I guess you can tell the California pictures didn’t happen today.  Maybe that’s because there are about 200 photos to sort through!  Maybe tomorrow?  Hopefully tomorrow.

In the meantime, here are some snapshots from our lives this week.

The big news is that I’m knitting for food now!  I have four orders in for knit-by-Becca Christmas presents and another three orders pending.  I’m over the moon.  There’s still room for more, so send me an email to if you’re interested in a hand-knit Christmas present for a loved one.  Here are some photos of Lena exploring my latest project: a pair of silk-and-merino fingerless gloves.

 I was walking by Lena today with my camera and saw her standing up for the first time!  After calling for Elliott to “quick, come look at this!” I snapped a fuzzy picture.  She had knocked Settlers of Catan off the shelf and then thought it was just the right height for her.

We’ve been going on a beautiful walks along the river in the evening, as usual.

My hair has a new secret.  It’s called Aveda Institute, a national beauty school.  Today for $20 I received a luxurious haircut with a senior student (11 months into her program and 1 month away from working at a high end salon).  She even gave me a head and hand massage as part of the package!  I felt so pampered and got a great haircut.  Find a school near you!
I love this photo.  I took it while looking back at the embankment and path on the opposite side of the river.  This dad was amazing: two daughters on bikes, a kid in a jogging stroller, and he was wearing roller blades.
This dad is even more amazing, though, I think.

One more snack (oatmeal and yogurt, mmm) before bath time!
