Organize organize organize
I’ve gathered up all my unfinished monster parts. I’ve got about four years worth of stray parts here. Some are just pieces. Some are sewn up bodies. All have been abandoned before completion for some reason or another. I’ve finally brought them together to analyze them and try to keep them organized. I think this is all of them. I’d like to use these parts, somehow. Most likely they won’t end up being what they were originally planned for, but that’s probably a good thing. I spread them out in the crib because that’s one of the few flat surfaces that the baby can’t get to and is not interested in. Yesterday she mastered scaling the dining room table, so there goes my workspace! When my big boy was this age, I walked around a lot cutting out pieces and stitching as I walked. I wish I had a tall baby proof surface. A girl can dream. Don’t the bars of the crib look like rays of light? It’s as if when all these parts were combined, ENERGY was formed!
I think I finally have all my buttons organized in one place too. Not organized amongst themselves, but at least gathered together. Feels good. Been doing some buttony things, so this is very helpful!
We went to the Kyushu and Okinawa Food Festival at Mitsuwa yesterday. It was so crowded. People really like food. These sweet cream puff pastries with a custardy pudding medallion spliced in to the middle of them were the tastiest things ever! We brought them home because we were full after eating dinner at the market and then we ate them for breakfast this morning. I am considering going back for some more today. They were that good. The fair is still going on for a few more hours. If I could ever replicate this recipe at home that would be just amazing. Maybe dangerous. They also had green tea cake rolls with pudding in the middle which looked so very good on the poster but unfortunately they were sold out. I think they came from miles around for that one. I did try making something like that once but it didn’t turn out quite right.
On a healthier note, I’ve harvested some seeds from our spinach patch. Once I gather them all up, I’ll start a new patch. Eating food you’ve grown from seed is so satisfying. Food from seeds that come from seeds you’ve grown yourself is ultra gratification. Ah, the circle of life.
