Hello again

Things that have been happening recently:

  • We thought we might get to move to the apartment above us, which meant an oven (!) and a dishwasher, among other perks. But it didn’t work out. So we’re redoing part of the Bwun’s room to make way for jr.
  • The Bwun loves to talk and say new words. He also is currently obsessed with airplanes.
  • School started again for the Romgi, and it seems (so far) like he’s enjoying classes this semester. I like that his schedule is a little more open and I get a few extra naps during the week.
  • There’s a house near us that has a really amazing yard, with a garden and a little fish pond. I went on a walk with the Bwun last week and we stopped to see the fish. While we were there, a mangy-looking cat came and started drinking water off the plants. The Bwun and I went on another walk today, past the fish pond, and he kept asking where the cat was.
  • I realized that I don’t actually enjoy doing anything. I mean, aside from spending time with the Romgi and the Bwun. Don’t most people have a hobby (or two)? I’m tired of reading for the moment, so I spent a while harassing the Romgi until he came up with something for me to do. It turns out I do like carving stamps out of soft linoleum. Here are some poor-quality pictures of the old and new stamps I’ve done. Please pretend it’s cool, because I am a little bit having fun.

Old: bird

Old: mouse

Old: crocodile

New: ladybug

New: giant anteater

New: fox

New: owl

  1. I was going to comment that your stamps were awesome, but now that you told me to pretend it’s cool, I don’t know how to do it without seeming like I’m just following orders.

    Maybe reverse psychology? I guess those stamps are alright. :)

    I think the owl is my favorite stamp. I like them all though, you are talented!

  3. Team Fox says:

    I don’t give a hoot. The fox is the best stamp.

  4. KHL says:

    Very fun stamps! Glad you found something to do! Maybe the Romgi should be a cruise director!

    I love the fox and the anteater. They are awesome!

    Dad doesn’t think you ever believed him that he REALLY thinks these (and the animals you’ve done for years) are good … and something you could sell. He would buy them! (Hey, “easy” Christmas present!)

    My goodness, you CARVED these? That’s amazing! I don’t think my hands are even capable of that kind of coordination. I’m torn between the anteater and the fox as my favorite.

  8. Jennifer says:

    These are so cheery. We still need our project day!

    I too am torn between the fox and the anteater as my faves.

  9. Romgi says:

    My favorites so far are the anteater and the owl. They just look so perfectly fun when you put them in a card.

  10. KHL says:

    But nobody’s mentioned the croc–I really like him too!
