Laboring Over Labor Day

The library has been driving me crazy. Every time I walk in there, I develop facial tics. So when we were given a weekend with minimal plans, I knew it had to be tackled. So we cleaned, organized, and moved until we were happy. We moved this little table from the library to the kitchen, and I couldn't be happier. Not only can the kids color and draw on it, but they can eat on it too. I believe their eating on it will save the table, because Ollie was single-handedly destroying it with his dirty hands and inability to remain seated during a meal. (I'm sure my sporadic cleaning added nothing to its dirty condition. Nothing.)

To aid in cleaning, I covered it with some laminated cotton. Love this laminated cotton. It smells like my kindergarten lunchbox. Quite apropos, dontcha think? And no, this is not staged. Rhett loves looking at the weather page over his breakfast repast.

I thought this looked happy.

P.S. Rhett LOVES this dinner. I feel like it's my first real Rhett-food victory.

P.P.S. I'm leaving for Alaska tomorrow to attend my brother's wedding. I don't have anything interesting to write anyway, so this space will be quiet until sometime next week. See you!


  1. I will sorely miss you and your posting while you are in AK.

    That pic does look staged except it's Rhett so I totally believe the little man does this daily.

    So any pics of the new library look? Curious minds want to know.

    And thanks for the recipe share! Marc and I were just wanting to try an apple salsa! Hooray! And I never make rice and beans! I should start! Does Rhett get the meal leftovers for lunch? Madeleine has yet to go a kindergarten day without leftovers. Amazing!

  2. I love it! I love Rhett reading the paper! Too funny! The laminated cotton is genius. Really.

    Congrats to Derek! Hope the wedding goes well! Enjoy :)

  3. love the table. love the cloth. love the meal. and totally love the weather-reader! adorable!
