I like that, Jim. You captured the surly teenager, there.

I made a house clean...ish.

LJ those are gorgeous.
Of course I've only ever seen your kids in photos or videos, but as far as I can tell you have captured them perfectly.

Like Shawnee (grumble, grumle talented people).

Yesterday I blitzed my room. This fits because I made a room clean, okay?
At Mum's request - natch.

But when Diz woke me up at 05.00-ish this morning I did revel in the fact there was nothing to trip over on the way to the bathroom. I'm not really messy, I just have a tendency to store things on the floor. Especially library books, which reside in at least three piles (read, unread and worth another look).

And I could easily access the window to open the blinds. Maybe she has a point.

Lovely kids, Jim - and I envy you your drawing skills.
I finished this shawl today - for my SIL's birthday. Took 20 days to knit ...

Lucky SIL!

When I blitzed my room on Friday I came across the gloves you made me.
They were tucked away because it's summer of course.
Made me smile all over again.
I'll definitely be bringing them with me in January.

I just noticed the shawl. Very nice, Limey!

Didn't get around to posting this until today, but yesterday I made this sieve. I wanted to take the kids fossil hunting at Calvert Cliffs yesterday, but I planned poorly and didn't realize it was 2 hours away instead of 1 hour away. 4 hours round trip requires a little more planning, and the trip was scrubbed.

Anyway, I took the suddenly free time and built this sieve so that it will be easier to find the sharks' teeth in the mud when we do get around to going. Made it from scraps and some boards the neighbors were throwing away. Total cost: free.

You could also use that for cleaning out your kitty litter.

So yesterday I took that sieve to the beach to go fossil hunting, and it was horribly disappointing. Found some shells. Big whoop. I had found fossilized shark's teeth on that beach in the past, but absolutely nothing this time. I had high hopes with the sieve. Oh well.

But I'm here to show the movie I made this morning as a test of MonkeyJam, a stop motion photography program. It's nothing special, but I'm hoping to have something better to show for it tomorrow.
