I like to pick out my favorite patch and pretend I have 5 yards to make a dress and what it would look like. I love non-matching patchwork so much. I made the binding on these hotpads out of three different fabrics, but they do kind of match; it's hard to turn off the MATCH button in my brain.

Happy is a visit to my grandparents with my mom and children. My children are so blessed to have known both maternal and paternal great-grandparents.
Grandma had just finished looking through her recipe box with Mom and me, discussing chiffon cakes. Cakes make me nervous.
Grandma is holding the rainbow pictures Genevieve and Ben drew for her birthday. She turned 90 on St. Patrick's Day and we sent her a card (this year! I'm not always that thoughtful or organized) - the big party is coming in May so we can celebrate Grandpa's 90th too.
Funny is this picture that Genevieve copied, of her own initiative. It's the first picture I've seen her do that didn't come from her head.
Real is this 5-Minute Salad I made, thinking how the children would all love it. I love jello salads, although I consider them dessert. I served some to the children as an after-school snack instead of the usual apple. They didn't like it and didn't finish it, even after Genevieve suggested some pecans on top.
I collected these snippets as part of Leila and Rosie's post on everyday contentment.
