tuesday – we drank the coffee omar roasted on sunday. omar has a new hobby thanks to our friend tim who introduced us the world of sweet maria’s and roasting with an old school air popcorn popper – the poppery II (and it is complete with vintage tan and orange color scheme). tim was kind enough to bestow omar with one of his three (!) poppers.
on this day omar somehow misunderstood me when i told him i’d created a “raffi” pandora station for the boys. he thought i told him i’d created a “rocky” station. we laughed. and then we created an “eye of the tiger” station. and then i promptly deleted it.
wednesday – i started this shirt. t-shirt courtesy of target. stencil courtesy of lena corwin. technique courtesy of alabama stitch book. color scheme courtesy of the leftovers of elisha’s rooster shirt.
thursday – i found out that there is indeed an original kilogram (is this something i should have learned in school??) and it might have lost a bit of weight therefore upsetting the whole world of measurement. and it has only been handled 3 times since 1889 for fear of an ill-timed sneeze. very interesting.
friday – we ran errands upon errands. asher flirted with old ladies at ikea. elisha had a major meltdown due to missing a nap. black bean soup and french bread made it all better.
saturday – i learned that the entire score of fiddler on the roof is going to be released. but this version is going to be performed with latin arrangements. random? perhaps, but i am quite excited. i am a fan of musicals, jewish culture (i studied aspects of jewish architecture in school and, oddly enough, got on a reading kick a couple of years ago where i read several jewish-themed novels), and latin music. maybe they’ll have a tour.
