on the making front, i caved and knit wurm using malabrigo. it’s soft and squishy but it has to be one of the most unflattering things i’ve ever knit so i thought it best to force the red bean to model it because her beauty can outshine the wurm.
there has been model building. it would seem that my boy has been bitten by the model building bug and this lands squarely in the mister’s domain. i’m good at going to the big box craft store with a list and buying the necessities: glue, paint, x-acto blades. the mister is better in assisting with the actual building and painting. and so here we have the Panzerkampfwagen II, built by the boy, assisted by the mister as this was his first model-building experience.
the red bean has been working on her very first playlist. i’ve thrown out a few suggestions which she has taken readily but she wasn’t so sure about the 80s madonna. i tried to explain to her that when i was in college my roommates and i had a boombox on the back of the toilet in our bathroom and that 80s madonna was my shower music of choice. she nodded in an offhand way and then asked, “what’s a boombox?” i died a little in that moment. her playlist has been the bulk of our listening this week and for the most part, it’s respectable: johnny cash, bob dylan, the sundays, the avett brothers (her favorite is this one), rem, st. etienne, feist, bob marley, mumford and sons, neil young, old crow medicine show, gillian welch, and sadly two miley cyrus songs (this and this and yes, they make me cringe).
what have you been making and listening to?
making + listening with the fabulous dawn.
