So Ruby, Sailor and (possibly) Chopper have a band. Ruby will give everyone an instrument and they will play songs that she counts off. Most of her part is the flamboyant rock&rolling and occasionally singing while Sailor keeps time and Chopper...well if nothing else he is there for moral support.
After their last performance, I asked Ruby what the name of the band was. She quickly said "rock&roll." I explained to her that that was the style of music that she played but to be complete, the band needed a really good name. She looked at me, completely deadpan and said "Sophie Makes Fire." She then walked to her room and onto other things.
You can't make this stuff up. It's always good to get some verification that you are raising your kids right. I don't know where the name came from but it sounds to me like the title of a late 70's B-movie you would see Elvira presenting at 3am on local television. I'm thinking something like Carrie but a lot grittier. Anyhow, here's to a successful future for SMF, heaven help us when they get their hands on real instruments.

When she got her sewing machine, I never imagined she'd be behind it so much. I am truly impressed with the skills she has built and what she is able to do as virtually a beginner. I think she might be on a little break but there are already some folks requesting more projects to be done, including myself.
Take the week off from sewing babe, you deserve it.

I'm not quite sure when it happened, but my Mom developed an uncanny ability to make soup. She must have been hoarding recipes for quite some time because she's got her favorites and always manages to throw something new at us occasionally too. We usually get a couple meals worth at a time so we'll eat one and freeze the other. Last week we noticed the freezer was starting to fill up so we decided this week was soup week. It's been great, especially with the bad weather. Thanks Mom for all that you do, soup and otherwise.
