Just keep crafting

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

I’ve been spending a fair amount of time crocheting lately. If you follow me on instagram you’ve likely seen the pictures. I have a baby project that’s ongoing as well as a request from Tabitha for something that I’m still working on. One I like, the other gives me fits. One night I just wanted […]

picture less

Monday, July 28th, 2014

No picture again, just being lazy, no other reason.
Up at 6am- good. Up at 6am and knowing I’ve already been up since 4am- not good. Woke at 4 for no reason at all. Just laid there for while. Listened to some rain outside (YAY! RAIN!). Listened to the living room clock tick. Like really, […]

What food group is mish-mash?

Friday, July 25th, 2014

You know what I had for lunch today? A hashbrown, a sixth of a watermelon, and a lime Oreo.
You can tell I don’t have the kids. And I won’t have them until tomorrow morning when this week can finally come to an end.
I love that they are having such a wonderful time at bootcamp […]

lady who lunches

Just wandering

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

The younger child stayed at a friend’s house last night so the rest of us rented The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. I really enjoyed that story as a child and was very excited when the movie came out. But rarely do we make time to go to a movie theater so it was […]

the good

Saturday, July 12th, 2014

Park was so lovely yesterday. There was a breeze that didn’t make me cold which is a minor miracle. My favorite friend was there to chat with whist the children ran about. My older and my younger had friends there. Very nice.
We went out to dinner with my mom and sister which is rare treat. […]

meaning of life

Friday, July 11th, 2014

This morning I was dealing with an annoying issue and found myself thinking how I’m tired of things being annoying. Then it hit me how often I’m thinking that and I realize, apparently that’s what life is. Life isn’t the smooth ride I want it to be. Instead it’s a serious of bumps interrupting […]
