Last night after dinner, we were just kind of hanging around, and Anja brought Martin my colorful baby wrap. I knew she wanted to wear her baby (and Martin knew it too) but he said, "my, this is an awfully big blanket!" and he started rolling her baby doll up in the wrap. Oh my gosh, she got SO MAD AT HIM. It was absolutely hilarious. When we'd caught our breath back after laughing so hard, we wrapped the baby onto her and we all went outside for a walk, which didn't get very far, since there were so many squirrels playing in the trees, and eventually we decided to go to the library. I checked out "The Passion of the Hausfrau" because it was noted in the current issue of Mothering Magazine. Martin got some books on processing your own deer.
This cold weather makes me really crave wireless internet. I am picturing myself in coat, hat and gloves while making blog posts this winter and it's not such a pleasant imagining. Of course, once we win the lottery, we're going to totally re-do the back room, including adding about nine furnaces to it, so then I'll just kind of live back here and make blog posts all the time.
Yesterday Greta had her 6-month checkup in the morning. She weighed in just shy of 18 pounds. From there we went over to the Smith's house to visit our friend Mary Grace, and her mommy. They fed us coffee and biscotti, Greta slept half the time and Anja was in desperate need of a nap and was SUPER cranky, but it was a fun time anyway!
Here's a business opportunity for anyone who wants me hanging around as their best customer: I saw a sign in the window of Burton Pools (Main and 8th... or 7th, I can't remember) that they have moved, or are moving. This is the place that used to be that giant antique store. I think it would be the perfect location for a natural food store, a Nature's Pharm or Sunspot kind of place. Not only would it be a great location for the owner, but also for ME! Which is, obviously, the most important part.
Don't miss out on this fall's hottest accessory:

Also on the to-do list today is making fall cookies!! Yahoo! Oh how I do love cookies shaped like leaves and acorns. It makes them all the more delectable.
