the weekend

Mostly I was sick, tired, and draggy all weekend, but it was still a good one.
:: I bought tulips on Farmer's Market on Sunday. Faith went with us (so it was me, Faith, and the little boys) and we got Naked Juices at the health food store and later went to this park again and had a good time there. We might start going there every Sunday.
:: I started cutting up and arranging these fabrics for my throw quilt. This has been a long awaited first step in this project that has been stalled for ages. As it was, I didn't get very far, but that's okay.
:: I cut up a pineapple for myself for Saturday lunch.
:: On Sunday we had this tea and it was very very good and honestly did make me feel a bit better. Take ginger slices and a lemon section and put them in a cup (squeeze the lemon). Pour boiling water over and allow to steep. Melt a spoon of honey into it. Faith kept saying "this is better than any tea we ever bought" and I have to agree with her.
:: We made the unleavened version of these and used raisins instead of chocolate chips. Good, but the boys were bitterly disappointed about the lack of chocolate. Oh well . . .

:: the boys learned to eat edamame out of the pods.

:: at the park on Sunday there was a European woman looking very chic in a pair of wraparound pants. When I searched for "wraparound pants" on Etsy and on Google everything that came up was so billowy and weird. I wonder where she got hers, which were so slim and stylish . . .

That is going to be a beautiful quilt! Is is Anna Maria Horner? It looks like it could be. Can't wait to see some progress!

Yes, the "good folks" throw, inspired by the one Soulemama made last year. :)

Sounds so productive even though you weren't feeling that well. I posted a granola bar recipe this morning that I think you might like. Check it out if you get a chance.

I love that blue on your walls. And I hope you feel better soon!!

I so admire your work space.

Hope you feel better soon. I find it so hard to be a Mom and sick at the same time. So long are the days of watching the Fonz and Dr. Wellby on the TV and eating cinnamon toast.

Sending healing energy your way.

I have the same the recipe bookmarked from somewhere else, it sounds like a good cold fighter.
One day i want to make a quilt for my bed too - it just seems so daunting!

Mary Beth - those pants, are you sure they weren't Thai fishing pants? Very easy and they look wrap-around.

It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend, full of everything and everyone you love. Good for you.
