So no critters in the grass box (yet!). So far the table has also become a desk for his research. I’m digging having this little Scientist in the family.

Speaking of Little Man….. (I kind of like the Scientist, hmmm…..he’s been growing out of his nickname lately too since he’s so darn big!) Anyway, I was putting Knittykid down for his nap yesterday when all of a sudden I hear Little Man screaming at the top of his lungs, “Hey you, stop that!!! You stop that right now! STOOOOPP ITTTT!!!!”

Now this is a kid who’s known to freak out at construction workers for making too much noise, or yell at the landscapers next door because they were cutting down the vines, so I wasn’t too worried. But I did hightail it to the window to see what the offense was.

The offender? Some poor woman spraying weed killer all over the neighbors lawn. As I looked out she was nervously placing the Do not walk on the grass or you and you loved ones will suffer from all sorts of nasty diseases sign (yeah, I’m biased. I hate that junk, especially when it’s being sprayed ten feet from my kid). Apparently I’ve over educated Little Man on the evils of all non-organic lawn care. We had to have a little talk about it, explaining that yes, weed killer is bad for people, bad for the planet, but screaming at strangers will not help solve the problem and is generally considered bad manners.

So in Little Man’s honor, here is a link to our favorite organic lawn care stuff, just in case you are now wondering a bit more about it: Gardens Alive. Which reminds me, I need to place an order!

Since Fridays are technically supposed to be for spinning around here, I’ll show off my Spinner’s Web Rosa for you today. It’s closer to a bulky weight this time, but so lovely. I didn’t realize the pictures were so blurry when I took them, but you can still see the lovely oranges and purples blended in with the pink. I finished it up last week.
