Happy Friday + Randomness

Happy Friday! The other day, as I walked K and her friend S to school in drizzly weather, I listened to their conversation.

S: What if it rained food instead of water?

K: I would want it to rain ice cream.

S: I’d want sushi.

What followed was an impassioned discussion about the merits and demerits of the two. I heard words like “sticky”, “yummy”, “smelly”, “melty” and — inexplicably — “itchy”.


The purging is slow-going. I saw this post via Cup of Jo, and am newly inspired. If a family of four can live that stylishly in 540 sq. ft., I have no excuse with three times that space!


Have a lovely weekend, friends! I’ll be posting a new outfit for K on Tuesday instead of Monday next week in conjunction with Japanese Sewing Book Series. Excited! Wrapping things up with a weekly haiku…

If the sky rained food
what would you want it to be?
Me, I’d like carbs please

    1. I think I watched the movie but didn’t know there was a book, Carla! I’ll definitely check that out. We’ve been reading the How to Train a Dragon series and enjoying it immensely.

  1. so true, your haiku! Carbs are truly the yummy things in life:)
    Glad to hear the purging is going strong. I used the month of January to do much the same and was amazed by how much “lighter” I felt. I know that sounds weird, but all our stuff was beginning to feel oppressive. My biggest problem is my sentimentality!

    1. I hear you, Lucinda – it’s the sentimentality that gets me each time! I’ll be chugging along and then discover a drawerful of old photos and then it’s a lost cause…

  2. I’ve been telling Em a silly story at bedtime about a mom and daughter that go walking and hot cocoa starts dripping on their heads from a helicopter carrying a giant mug of cocoa, so they go swimming in it with marshmallow floaties. Food-based stories are the best! Happy weekend!

    1. What a great story! Marshmallow floaties! So awesome – you can even riff on that with giant s’mores where you’d escape the campfire just in time 🙂
