Tell Me Daddy!

Fun with webcams

Gabi and I were hanging out at the desk this morning - so I switched on the webcam and we had som fun for a few minutes.

Nose Picker!

We've been having trouble lately with Gabi picking!

We have no idea where our little angle could have learned such a disgusting habit...

The Craft Shack

Tiff snapped this pic of her Crafting area (yet to be named) and left the pic on the camera memory card - so, I'm swiping it for the blog.

The cabinets came with the house (although they were in the laundry room ?!?) We moved them upstairs and I built the shiny shiny desktop and the tower to the left to fill in the gaps. Turned out very sturdy.

You can't see them very well in the picture, but i installed two outlets on the back of the workspace for her to plug in her crafting tools (very convenient).

My First CheeseCake

How's that for a first attempt? I'll tell you how it is - it is delicious!
Too rich though to eat alone, and Tiff won't touch it. Good thing Emmi and Oskar come around now and then:)

I didn't let the creamcheese soften long enough (too excited to wait), so you'll see a few irregular 'bumpity' things on there, but I swear (and Emmi backs me up) you can't taste 'em at all.

Not quite as good as the "Cheesecake Factory" slice Emmi and I had the other day, but a very fine first attempt!

If a Fire Work Exploded in my Brain... What Might it Look Like?


The Long and Short of It

Abigail Beata

Gabi too.

Great shot of Tillie tonight.

Gabi's New Bed

Hurried to get the wheels on and in the house before bed time. Gabi freaked out and refused to go near the new bed. We had to pull the matress back out of the bed and place it on the floor again before she would go to bed. We'll have to leave the bed in there and place the matress in it every chance she will let us - to acclamate her to the way things are to be.

Here is the inspiration for Gabi's bed - pretty close I think.

Gabi's New Bed

Gabi's new bed. Just needs a couple coats of polyurethane to finish it off. Then I can add the wheels (for easy moving) and she'll be able to make it through the night ON her matress :)

Monitor Stand

Built a new monitor stand for my dual monitor set-up at the office. Looks pretty good, I just hope I estimated the dimensions close enough.

Monitor stand in action. Looks like I guessed pretty well.
