Dia de los Muerte

We made a little altar for lost loved ones to celebrate the Day of the
Dead. We went to the Tacoma Art Museum where they had a big party and
looked at altars, listened to music and made both paper flowers and sugar
skulls. Grandma Sandi accompanied us.

Sure she looks happy enough but in reality she's seething. Ryu is about 3
feet away and Karma is still a furball of bitterness. I wish I could make
them get along.

If we had hedge clippers we could have had more. Jennifer LeMay and I
picked blackberries and made jelly and jam. I did 2 batches of jelly and 1
of jam. 24 jars of varying sizes (nearly half were half pints). It was a
learning process, but a good one.

Homeschool - Day One


Homeschool - Day One
Originally uploaded by Johanna1476

Honestly, in the tradition of most first days my expectations are relatively
low. We did one writing assignment. We will be running errands and hitting
up the library to find some books on Singapore. I'm hoping to get his math
assessments done in the next couple of days so I can buy his book. He'll be
playing some on-line spelling games later, as well. Reading will probably
wait for bedtime. Science? Hmmm.. maybe we can look at why baking powder
makes breads rise.. *shrug*

9 years ago right now we were chilling out post labor. One hour after your
birth. Here we are 9 years later and I love you more every day. It's been
a long day. Rest well, my sweet boy.

Sitting here at the local coffee joint. About to start working on finishing reading a book ("Tangle Box" by Terry Brooks). Marsh is at TKD and an hour of sitting on those benches sounded very unappealing. So here I am phone blogging ;)

Got a car! A very awesome friend gave me a sweet deal on her old Saturn. It's in fantastic shape and I love it!

The work from home gig is going well and I'm kept busy. Well, I better drink my coffee before it gets cold. And my book isn't reading itself. ;)
