Just think, a few more weeks until we get to figure out our summer normal. I'm actually looking forward to it now. I'm going to have a sitter one afternoon a week and I think knowing I have that break to get my stuff done will help me relax and enjoy the rest of the week. I'm also looking forward to lazy mornings, trips to the park, afternoons on the patio and at the pool...it all sounds good. Also, no more volunteering at school. As much as I love being in their rooms, I'm over it now. :) And no more packing lunches every morning!! What are you most excited for?
Happy Belated Mother's Day! Mine started out really nice but then we were just so busy, busy, busy and I wanted a nap and had just fallen asleep and got woken up. I was so mad. I ended up going to church by myself and talking to my mom afterwards for a long time and then I felt much better. I have PMS right now and am very sensitive. I hope it ends soon. Being sensitive takes so much energy.
On Saturday morning I had a really nice coffee & walking date with Kari. Before our walk, we had delicious scones at Ground Zero that inspired me to make my own yesterday morning. They weren't nearly as delicious but did the job. :) Afterwards I finished shopping for Ruby's birthday (tomorrow!) and returned home to spend the afternoon and evening on our patio.
There is no official thrift share monday going on this week but I thought I'd share some of my favorite thrifted summertime art.
I got this large painting last year for $7. I love the colors, the old house and the front porch. It's a historical house somewhere in WI (I forget where, it says on the back, and is signed and dated 1977.)
Ruby's cupcakes for school tomorrow are cooling. I have SIX loads of laundry that I washed and hung on the line yesterday to deal with. A lot of it is sheets and blankets so I have a lot of beds to make this morning. Patrick is upstairs sleeping. (We all caught mild colds from James but he seems to have it the worst.) Nicky is just about finished watching Rocket (LIttle Einsteins). I've got a bunch of stuff to package up for Ebay. It's going to be a busy day but that's okay. It's also going to be a QUIET one and that's just what I am craving.
