I’m pulling out of the Trader Joe’s parking lot when Rose asks what happened to our shopping cart. “I didn’t see you put it away,” she says.
“I didn’t have to! A nice man was heading into the store, and he took it for me. Wasn’t that kind of him?”
Rose ponders a moment. “Maaaybe,” she says skeptically. “Or maybe he just wanted a way to get your fingerprints.”

- OrangeJuicyKnits » Strawberry Market Bag: The Pattern! – Free pattern for scrumptious knitted bag. Hey Jane, take a look and see if you think you could come up with a crocheted version. HT: One Pretty Thing. (Crazy Mom’s ragged squares quilt is there, too, but I saw it first at her own blog. Still swooning.)
- The Miss Rumphius Effect: Art in the Classroom – Picturing America – “Have you applied for a Picturing America grant?…Public, private, parochial, and charter and home school consortia (K-12), as well as public libraries in the United States and its territories, may receive a total of 40 high-quality, laminated reproductions (approximately 24” x 36”).” Individual homeschools are not eligible, but your hs co-op might be.
- crazy mom quilts: how to make a ragged squares quilt – Oh! Dreamy! And simple enough I could pull it off. Um, I think.
This one I Twittered yesterday, but in case you missed it: “Mom, is this correct? For men we say ‘fat,’ for women we say ‘overweight’?”
And this one was uttered casually during dinner cleanup by that same dainty daughter: “Mom, do you know what I like best about girl superheroes in comic books? The fighting. Because I’ve always wished I could just punch someone in the nose too.”
