NOTE TO SELF: do not put contacts in after seeding and chopping jalapenos. hello!!! (the jamaican-style rice and beans were well worth the short-lived eyeball agony, however…let’s not do it again, okay??)

a 2nd NOTE TO SELF: do not take two-year-old to bead store without at least six other people to keep an eye on him. enough said, i’m sure. but, we found these, and i heart them muchly:

some of them will play in a few aquarium-inspired yarns…

and speaking of yarn, i have several projects in the works, including this one for

he’s quite richly dressed, but so is our summer, thanks to the frequent drenchings we’ve been getting…
