Ever just dump all of the leftovers in your refrigerator into one bowl, heat it up, and call it breakfast? Yeah, me too.

10 Seconds

The amount of time it took the cat to move from this box: 

To this box from the moment the second box hit the floor.

What's Up?

I have to admit it: I'm doing a poor job of writing on this blog this summer. And last summer I was so good! I have no excuses. So here is what has been going on lately with the Winskyes:

Dr. Doctor Beth came to visit us!

I've created a Pinterest account and it has taken over my life, but it has also been an invaluable resource for researching crochet tips, new recipes and art inspiration for my next tattoo. Want to follow my boards? Come look me up!

I'm also still obsessed with my crochet projects and I still plan on opening an Etsy shop this summer. It will be handmade accessories, plushies, toys and bags, not all crocheted. Here are a few of the highlights from my summer projects so far.

This is the African Flower motif, and I'm almost done making a purse which I will share soon

Joe just finished his inter-island tour with Bento Rakugo. They performed on Oahu, Hawaii (The Big Island), Lanai and Molokai, to the delight of many, many children, librarians and community members. Joe is sure that he broke a few librarian hearts along the way. I'm sure he did.

We've also been on a card playing kick this summer. So far we've been playing Rummy (in many varieties), Crazy Eights, Egyptian Rat Screw, Euchre, Cribbage and Garbage/Spit. We'd like to learnBridge, but holy cow! The rules look incredibly complicated when you read them online. Anyone on-island want to teach me to play? And can anyone recommend some other good 2 player card games or dice games?
