AND MUSHROOMS! GAHHH!!

february.chowder

How could I forget the mushrooms?! Please do add one cup of sliced white button mushrooms to the 2nd section of yesterday's recipe. You will be glad you did. I'll go fix the post here in a sec to add it. Mmm. Just as yummy today warmed up for lunch as it was last night.

This morning I was figuring with the kids how old they'll be once Roman starts school. Which led to further discussion about how long they'll go to school, college etc. I remember that time frame sounding endless when I was little. Joseph then asked if you go to college for 12 years too once you're done with the rest of school.

I chuckled and said- well most people don't and that- I just went to college for four years to learn how to be a designer.

Eleni said- four years!? Were you just drawing that whole time?

I told her -yup pretty much.

Then she seemed to have a look of realization on her little bubbly face and said- oooohhh! you kept drawing and erasing and drawing and erasing and then when you learned to draw without erasing, were you done with school?

I just said- yes. I hadn't had my coffee yet and it was time to get them to the bus stop.

Back to my drawing board. xoAnna

  14. Smart cookie, that one. Now, if I do the math right, you will have one child OUT of college and one child not yet IN Kindergarten. And you make lots of cool stuff. You are my hero.

  16. Love it! I earned my BFA in illustration, and if you count Surgical Residency, my husband is on his ELEVENTH year of schooling! Yipes. I never thought of that till now...one more to go, but who's counting? :)

    p.s. Tell Eleni that they let you graduate only when you start erasing without being told. :)

  17. I love kidspeak! My mom had minor surgery on her thyroid, and my nephew saw the scar and asked what it was from. She told him that she had a tiny operation and that was the scar and he said "Oh. Did they have to take your head off?" I abhor those days when the kidspeak goes away.

  18. No 2 asked me how many 'sleeps' till he can stop going to school... well I said, about 3000.

    Silence. Sigh. "that is like... infinity" he said.

    Poor little chap.

  23. I'll have to remember the just say 'yes' answer. The other day my son 'why-ed' me for about 10 minutes until I found myself trying to discuss DNA with a 6 year old...

  24. The soup looks great! I've always wanted to attend the Royal Academy of Needlework.

    S.W.A.K.

    P.S. - I'd love for you to enter my Valentine giveaway - a chance to win a pink bead-knitted purse, hand-knit by me.

  25. I adore your blog and your products...I was previously a fellow Nashvillian and came across your work through Allie - we went to Belmont together and were Design majors :) I was wondering if there is a pattern/list of fabrics used for the quilt "morning star" you have on your site right now under folksy flannels. I'm dying to (attempt to) make it!
    Thanks! -Jenn
