In Which BABY JOE is welcomed

IMG_4598, originally uploaded by feathermar.

and I'm so totally late to the party!
Baby Joe was born on May 18, and weighed 8lbs, 6 oz.
He was 19 and one half inches long.
He is a good eater and a good sleeper, and overall a nice baby. He is not jaundiced.
His brother James loves him very much!
His brother Quinn doesn't really understand what/who he is, only that things are different.
His mama and papa need to get more rest, but seem to be doing okay.
Don't ask about his Aunt Feather. She's mostly knows as Stressy McSickypants.

But he is a very smart and beautiful baby!

Hearts Treasury

Beautiful hearts! I'm in the middle of moving everything and I hate hate hate it! I went to work too early today (a little schedule change to liven things up) so I had time to make a treasury!http://www.etsy.com/treasury/NTMwNTI4N3wyNzIwMjk1OTQ1/hearts-afire

In Which I'm Trying to Catch UP

Decided to clean out a little while packing, and had to bring some of Andy's old dishes to Goodwill. And then I looked around. I may have gotten a sweater and a dress and THIS COOL DUDE:
He's a bank! Blue and black owl bank that has a sticker on the bottom that reads "Aldermaston Sales, Glen Cove, N.Y. Made in USA" I think he's awesome.
A little while ago, I scored this awesome thrifty art:
It's a sailor's valentine! Shell art is awesome. I read an article about it once (maybe in Martha Stewart?) and always wanted to try it. These flowers are entirely made of shells, as are their leaves and stems!
Totally trying to sell as much as possible in the next two weeks...less to pack up!

In Which My Hoard of Yarn and Fabric comes in handy!

I have been packing. Stuffing yarn in to cushion the delicate things. Wrapping glass and ceramic in yards of fabric. It's like all my collecting has a purpose. Go, stash, go!

In Which There is Something to Celebrate!

Cat and Shannon celebrated their wedding last Saturday! It was at a state park with plenty of hot dogs, ribs and beers! Then, THE ICE CREAM TRUCK CAME! And PARKED! And we got to have as much of whatever we wanted! I LOVED IT! And it was fun to celebrate our friends, and defeat a unicorn pinata, and call everybody princess (which is apparently a sign that I am intoxicated!).
Andy and I had a great time with two people we love from the very bottom of our hearts!

In Which We Owe a Lot of Money

Andy and I own a home. That's a gigantic crazy thing to write. We bought a house. We will come home from work, pull into the driveway and go into this house, and it will be our home. And I won't think about everything we move in there having to move again, or whether or not it's worth the hole of hanging something on the wall. Big doings. A yard for Baxter. A garage to build things in. A basement with a washing machine.

And with the great things in life, we are always reminded of the fact that time passes, and people leave us. Andy's family has suffered remarkable tragedies and losses, and his oldest brother recently passed away, after being sick for a long time. My heart breaks for them.
