Baking + Books....

Thanks for all the comments on the potty training...Neo is slowly making progress - two successful pee pees in the potty! We'll get there eventually....

We had a huge thunderstorm the other night!! i love storms!
Andrew was away for work so after I put the boys to sleep, I thought Id better do some cleaning up as my house looked like a mini tornado had gone through it...but somehow I ended up making choc-chip biscuits instead....does this ever happen to you or just me haha....well with all the lightening and rain I was just drawn into the kitchen for some tea and ended up baking instead....now I cant stop eating these...they are really yummy!
Perfect with a cup of coffee and some good reads! I finally finished 'Mrs Dalloway' which was suggested by Cherry....quite a few girls, Cherry included, couldn't finish it but I didn't mind it in the end...
The next book we're reading is 'Behind the Scenes at the Museum' by Kate Atkinson.
Im upto page 30 and its so depressing...hope it gets better!
I also received in the mail last week from Melissa, a book called 'Three Cups of Tea'....this was part of Karen's book swap so Im looking forward to starting that....I like to have a few books going on at the same time.

on the crafting side, Ive also been doing some 'DAD' inspired ATCs for a swap....made one so far....4 to go!!
for this one I included a map image of Australia as my dad arrived here when he was 23, some street maps of inner city Sydney as this is where he lives and a male image looking forward to life in a new country...

    Happy reading! Mrs Dalloway has been on my list of things to read forever... but I did enjoy the Kate Atkinson one... keep at it!

    I'm jealous of your potty training... No 3 has no intention of leaving his nappies behind hime... how old is your son?

  2. oh Anastasia I have been meaning to ask you if you have ever heard of Phoenix Trading?. It is a new company to Australia with wimisical cards and stationery and they are always looking for new artists. I think you would totally fit the bill, you should check them out www.phoenixtrading.com.au

  3. Love the Dad inspired cards!
    i started Mrs Dalloway ,too,never finished it.

    Hahahahaha! Oh no, I feel awful for deciding on a book that makes you blue! My mother doesn't like it one bit but I happen to be loving it! Hee hee! I wonder if there is a book out there that is universally loved?

  6. Yea on the potty training! And how fun about the books. I'll have to look into those.

  7. Making and eating biscuits is far better than cleaning ! Glad you've got your priorities right !

  8. hurrah for potty training progress! :) and chocolate chip cookies... i was drawn to make those the other day too... true comfort food! yum!

  9. I love storms too, and love cozy days homemaking and reading. I almost reserved the museum book the other day at the library, but didn't for some reason...now I'm sort of glad I didn't. I'll wait and see how you like it, in the end.

  10. It looks like you've been having a splendid time! Congrats on Neo's progress and well done for making biscuits before bed - you are verging on saintly here!

    Love the ATCs, especially the last one as it represents a really special time for your Dad.

  11. Hey Anastasia, keep with the Kate Atkinson book, I thought that too but now it ranks as one of my top ten books ever! It is one of those novels that makes you cry, laugh and at one point I even shouted at the book in outrage (you will know what I mean when you come to that bit!).



Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment!! i really appreciate it!
