I Sew Like I Cook: Slooooooowwwww

Because our bedroom feels about 5-10° cooler than the rest of the house, I decided to sew some insulated curtains. I mean, I decided to buy some curtains off of Craigslist and sew some insulation into them.



 

It was a good decision to start with pre-made curtains because sewing four rectangles of insulation into four curtain panels took...drum roll please...FIVE hours*. Hey, it's harder than it looks. Also, I'm slow.

Anyway, the insulation also acts as a black out material so we can sleep in as long as we like now! See, check out how well it works:

* For those of you who have actually seen me sew, you are probably wondering how I did in it only five hours. My little secret is my Mom who helped me plan it all out, cut, pin and sew. Thanks, Mom!

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like. Much to my surprise, I found that Google just happened to catch us on the morning of March 29, 2012. Our moving day! So, you better think twice before deciding to run around naked in your back yard. You never know when the aerial photography plane is going to fly by!

What We See From Our Car Window

We will be back stateside tomorrow tonight which means we will have greater access to internet (via our phone) and can finally catch you all up on all of the fun we've been having in Canada and the northeast U.S.! Until then, I thought I would share some of what we have seen while driving. Not all of them, dear. What is blocked out?? And why block that thing out and keep "Variety"? Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!
