Runs for Cookies: Friday Evening Photographs #135

I did not understand simply how few footage I’ve taken not too long ago till I uploaded them to my pc right this moment. Sadly, I do not even have any good tales to put in writing! Hahaha. However here’s a little of what is been happening this week…

I used to be in the lounge one morning once I heard an odd noise from the kitchen. It gave the impression of “Shhhh (pause) shhhhh (pause) shhhh (pause)…” and so on. I had no clue what it might presumably be. In case one of many cats (ahem, DUCK) was stepping into bother, I snuck in there to catch him within the act.

It seems, he’d taken a bag of onions from the pantry and was sliding it throughout the ground together with his enamel! He grabbed the drawstring for the bag, then walked a number of steps, pulled the bag to him by the drawstring, walked a number of extra, and so on. The poor cat loves enjoying with strings a lot; I want I might let him!

Chick would someway discover a approach to swallow the whole drawstring of this produce bag.

I reached 1,000 days sober on Sunday. After I consider it as 1,000 days it would not appear that lengthy however, in February, that can be three years… the place did that point go?! Quitting ingesting was an enormous turning level for me so far as taking good care of my well being, and I am SO glad that I give up. It was laborious to do–as laborious as, if not more durable, than shedding over 100 pounds–but fully price it.


I do not need to name Luke and Riley “spoiled”, as a result of they do not act spoiled at ALL; however it’s laborious to consider issues to do with them or to present them as a result of they’ve every part and so they’ve been in all places and so they’ve achieved every part! Hahaha, not totally correct, in fact, however it seems like that typically. I need to ship them issues within the mail, however I additionally do not need to purchase extra “stuff” for them to build up.

I like doing handmade issues as a result of it will likely be one thing they do not have already got. When Jerry and I first obtained collectively in 1999, I made him a bit of Altoids tin reminiscence field. I glued an image to the within cowl, a quote on the underside, and put a number of mementos in there. I not too long ago made him a brand new one and it gave me the thought to make a tin for every Luke and Riley.

After I searched Pinterest, I used to be stunned to seek out that so many different folks already had the thought to make use of Altoids tins for crafts like that! I actually appreciated the thought of a tiny stuffed cat for Riley and a few kind of recreation/puzzle for Luke. That is what I got here up with:

Riley’s has a bit of mattress and blanket for a cat that I made out of felt (the inspiration for the cat got here from this decoration). I minimize a tiny teddy bear from a chunk of material that I had, after which backed it with felt–so the cat has a teddy bear to sleep with. The “window” can have a day scene or night time scene.

Luke’s appears to be like so plain, however I feel it is applicable for him. I printed out tangram diagrams on a bit of card that I’ve since glued to the highest of the tin. I printed out the tangram sq., with shapes in several colours, to match the items within the diagram. Then I caught the sq. onto an adhesive magnet and minimize out the person items. Lastly, I coated them with Mod Podge. The magnets keep within the backside of the Altoid tin and Luke can put the completely different shapes collectively per the diagram. For the reason that youngsters fly on a regular basis, I assumed a bit of pocket toy could be one thing they’ll carry on the aircraft with them.


Subsequent, that is completely ridiculous. Numerous instances once I cannot sleep, I discover myself falling down the Reddit rabbit gap. I do not even keep in mind what I used to be studying one night time, however I got here throughout the remark of somebody saying that she has this bag of little plastic infants and he or she hides them round for her husband to randomly come throughout. The entire thing simply sounded so bizarre and–fun! I purchased a bag of them on Amazon.

I put a number of of them round the home the place Jerry might discover them that day or perhaps not for a yr… I did not need them to be in locations that had been tremendous apparent. I selected one random jacket within the closet and he simply so occurred to put on it the following day. He laughed when he put his hand in his pocket and pulled out the plastic child. He stated that Riley should have put it in there and he did not discover.

I do not know what he did with it, however the subsequent day, he discovered one which was hidden in a can of espresso. He thought it was the identical child and began laughing… he thought I might taken the one which “Riley” put in his pocket and simply re-hid it. This went on for a few days and it was fairly humorous. Jerry then determined to cover it himself and Eli discovered it in his shoe. Eli thought Noah did it as a result of, apparently, it is a pattern to do that with the plastic infants?!

I assumed that the particular person’s remark I might learn was only a prank she performed on her husband and I had no concept that it was really a factor. I ended up telling Jerry what was taking place with the infants (he was getting so confused, considering there was nonetheless only one child). I am nonetheless going to cover them infrequently, although 😉


What began out as, “I’m going to make a fanny pack!” one morning became a much bigger challenge than I deliberate, however I feel it turned out fairly cute. Whereas looking for fanny pack concepts, I got here throughout “bum bags”, “hip bags”, “sling bags”, “crossbody sling bags”, and several other different names and luggage with slight variances.

Reasonably than making the fanny pack I might been picturing, I ended up making this crossbody sling bag that has a cellphone pocket on the strap. (The strap crosses your chest, with the backpack half in again, so the cellphone pocket rests in entrance of my shoulder.) Often, I like both written instructions or I simply wing it alone, however this one simply had a YouTube video. So, I needed to preserve referencing the video for every measurement and step. It labored out, although. (Right here is the YouTube video)


Lastly, we now have SO a lot fruit on our counter proper now. Jerry’s employer offers all the workers a turkey or ham every Thanksgiving, and Jerry did not understand it till turning into plant-based, however you’ll be able to go for a fruit basket as a substitute of the meat. I’d have appreciated to see a much bigger number of fruit–it has apples, oranges, grapefruit, and a pineapple–but it is fruit, nonetheless. It would not appear like a lot when it is within the basket, however holy cow–there is a variety of fruit in there! I feel I will make selfmade applesauce within the crockpot.


And that is all I’ve obtained. Have an important weekend! xo
