Summer simplicity


Softie the crochet doll gets new hair from upcycled yarn. It’s naturally curly from former use, and isn’t it perfect for hair?


Wee feet. She has just started walking recently, and already I can’t keep up with her.


Current favorite read from the library. We usually go once a week, and we really should do it more often because we get through all the books in about two days.


Sprouting lemon seeds in a pot for a fun little project.


Pomegranates already ripening on the tree, reminding me that as much as I love summer, it will be over eventually, followed by another cycle of the High Holy Days.

  1. Seems we barely finish one holiday and another is upon us, doesn’t it? You really do have a green thrumb!! That pomegranate tree should be so nice in years to come too…my aunt in California had one in her yard and used to send us magnificent HUGE fruit like never was in the stores!!

  2. Love that doll! And yes, that makes perfect hair.

    Our older daughter was sitting on the bottom step, and simply got up and walked across the room. She had to run a little bit to keep from falling forward, so I know what you mean about not being able to keep up. Go, go ,go!
