Zetti Animals

Zetti art style doesn't have a set standard but it includes bright colors, hats/crowns, stripes (legs, neck, arms), butterfly wings, mismatched head and body, too big/human face features, dots, borders, etc. It's usually made out of collage/mixed media but for this swap everything had to be hand drawn. Oh, and I hosted the swap. :)
Random stuff:
  • we're picking up a used tricycle for the kid on Tuesday. I rarely buy new things for the baby, it's all mostly from friends or I buy them second-hand. The prices for new things are ridiculous and they mostly last for a couple of months before the kid outgrows it.
  • don't get me started on baby shoes. It's one thing you kind of have to buy new and the price is twice the amount I spend on my own shoes. And my shoes last longer than his, that's for sure. 
  • baby boy has 4 teeth on top and 3 on bottom. I've been waiting for the 4th on the bottom to come out and didn't pay attention to the back of the mouth where the fifths came out, top and bottom on his left side. I find it strange they didn't come out in order.
  • this photo was taken before it snowed on Wednesday. There was 20 cm (8˝) of snow yesterday but we got sun in the afternoon so everything is melting now. The snow broke a couple of our fruit trees though.

Black Birds

Random thoughts:
  • I sent hubby a news article that finally convinced him that letting the kid go barefoot wasn't a health crime
  • I started drinking green smoothies again for breakfast. I need to start eating healthy again. This post pregnancy weight needs to come off.
  • that vegan burger I ate last week at open kitchen event was delicious
  • I dreamt of swimming in a river and being attacked by snapping turtles. One latched itself to my ankle pretty good. What does it mean?

Mushrooms and Frogs


Round Robin  started with the mushroom from Tandy, I added the frog and Linda4atc finished with the rest.

Randomness:
  • I tried to make a pudding from chia seeds but I messed it up and it looked like fish eggs. :) 
  • I never liked eating mushrooms but I read somewhere that it would be beneficial for me if I did, so here I am eating mushrooms for the past week and looking for new recipes. I still cringe at the texture of it in my mouth though.
  • there's an open kitchen event every Friday in our capitol city where different restaurants come to the market and sell their food on the stands. I've never been but we're going today to taste the vegan foods. :)
  • I started writing my family tree again. I was very motivated awhile back but then gave up because it's hard to get any information beyond what grandparents remember. And data for our country is not online like it is for USA for example. Hopefully my mom's cousin will give me some info since he made his family tree some years ago.
  • here's baby boy with my mom's dog Kato. He has to wear the baby cap because it's so freaking windy here and I don't want him to get an earache. I need to buy some summer hats but they're not selling them yet.

Whimsy Portraits

Randomness:
  • baby had high fever this weekend and vomited, he's ok now but still has diarrhea which is fun :)
  • it turns out my hubby can't handle our kid being sick, they had to give him a "calming down" pill when we were at the doctor's on Friday night
  • my allergies are acting up, I had to take a pill yesterday because my eyes were too itchy
  • my vacuum cleaner broke down, I need to vacuum every day because of dog and cat hair and apparently the abuse has taken its toll

Nothing in common PAT cards ATC

Today's April Fools' day. I'm not really that fond of it. I mean, people lie to you about random stuff and then they call April Fool. I don't find that funny. And it's kind of obvious that everything and anything remotely unrealistic or suspicious would instantly be taken for a prank. Yes, I'm one of those people that won't believe anything you say on this day but if I do for some odd reason, I'm rolling my eyes at you when you're yelling April Fool at me.

For me a prank should be really elaborate and believable to really work. Just saying, look I bought you a soda then calling April Fool because it was diet soda, is just stupid. And so are all the "honey, I'm pregnant" pranks.

Do you have any really good April Fools' day stories?

Edit: And here I go forgetting it's April Fools' day this morning and falling for an engagement prank. :)
