a) I forgot to post yesterday. The youngest is down with the sickness. Again. It's croup. This is the fifth time she has had it in her short (almost) three years. This was the first time I'd taken her to the doctor for it though. I don't like giving the kids prescriptions and would rather use more natural ways to treat issues, but it was painful to watch/hear her struggle to breath at night and the coughing... oh it was bad. So now I'm trying to learn/learning a way to get her to take the liquid steroid he prescribed. Because it tastes like ass. Not that I would know what an ass tastes like, I wouldn't. I'm just guessing. But after the first half a dose, she was adamant about it being yucky and I only managed to get half of a second dose into her before bed. Just that little amount helped tremendously though and she was able to sleep all night with no coughing fits.
b) I have been making clothes like a mad woman! I haven't been sewing as much as I did when she was younger, but organizing that cabinet with all my fabric stash inspired me to sew a few things. That and I couldn't for the life of me decide on a good knitting pattern. Suggestions for patterns for both sewing and knitting are welcome at any time! *hint, hint*
c) Loving the recent weather! It hasn't been quite as hot or humid these last few days. Great weather for getting outside and making mud cookies.
e) I have been smelling all the clean laundry! I am putting the new washer through it's paces. It's like heaven for a housewife. All the things are truly clean and smell so much better. The weather has been great for hanging the clothes to dry too. So fresh and so clean, clean!
