monkeying around

By Tara Zandra | June 12, 2008

Our little monkey started her new level of gymnastics today. This level really seems to focus more on being correct technically. Various things were definitely being fine-tuned as opposed to just getting something accomplished. Daisy had a good time, but as always, she didn’t like when other kids don’t listen. She has always been a bizarre-ly good listener so she expects the same from others. Of course there’s always one boy who cannot listen to save his life and this class is no exception. Tabitha enjoyed her extra class and I like the coach she has now so it should be a good summer.

In honor of my Miss Daisy, I had bought monkey fabric on my birthday and today I finished the dress I was working on for her. This is just a quick pic in my living room, not dressed up with accessories.

I found a matching bracelet and necklace set on ebay that I hope to win and I’ll need to look for bows to complete the outfit. Daisy loved the dress and refused to take it off once it was on. I used a pattern for this one so for those who sew and care it’s Simplicity 2909.

Last night I fell in love with a new movie- The Mummy. Yes I know it’s 9 years old, but I’d never seen it because I thought it was horror. I only recently found out it’s more adventure and even comedic. Since it has Brendan Frasier as well, that all seemed good to me. Man I loved it! I still jumped here and there (I’m a movie wimp) but it was so campy and fun. Now we’ll need to get the sequel from Netflix. Right now we have Hollywoodland so Mummy Returns will have to wait.

I’ll close with an ode Tabitha wrote to her sister:

Daisy is nice
sugar and spice
Daisy is sweet
cute and petite
Daisy is cute
she plays a flute
Daisy’s adorable
not ignorable
Daisy is pretty
and sometimes giddy
By the time the adjectives are
We could be halfway to

    I can’t believe you have never seen The Mummy before! It is by far one of my faves and I have been in love with Brendan Fraser for ten years now. And since you loved the movie so much, you’ll be happy to know that a third Mummy will be released some time this year.

    See ya!

    I love the dress!! Great color choices and who doesn’t just adore monkeys? :o ) I can’t wait to see what it looks like with all the accessories.

    You are becoming quite the seamstress. I made dresses for my girls last week. 3 dresses in 2 days. Lordy! I don’t suggest trying that. LOL
