14 January 2011


There's not been alot of motivating going on here today.  
We were rudely tricked this morning into thinking that there was going to be some rather lovely bright sunshine to grace us today.  So the girls and I were bounding all over the house with all the blinds open welcoming the lovely rays flowing into the house as we went about doing chores with music playing loud.  

It was short lived you know.  It graced us long enough to get everything done and then the clouds rolled in with it's dreary counter part, the drizzly rain.  Yippee.  The music is still going though.

The girls were determined to keep up the peppy spirit and brought out their brand new collection of things that are taking over the house.

You would think that we have enough of all the itty bitty stuff that finds a home around here but apparently someone, somewhere thought differently.  I'm just glad that they don't slice a foot open like lego pieces do when you happen to walk across a room and unexpectedly step on one.  Especially at night when all you are wanting is just a little drink of water, while half asleep, and you unknowingly step on something that scares the you know what out of you.  At least these don't leave injuries.  Yet.
 One little person didn't want to leave the comfiness of my bed when she was asked to find a new place to play when I thought it was time to make the bed.  The little log was gently rolled off the bed.
 She was tempted with a craft project that included crayons and watercolors.  
So all was well for a wee bit.
 Now I just have to get my tail motivated to do some more work on Glenn's sweater.
I have to do some thinking about how I'm going to work this color into the whole mix of things along with the other color.
 And for some rather happy news,
Glenn and I are going to be grandparents in June!
And from what can be seen so far, grandparents to a little boy.
So I better get my tail moving because you know this little guy will be getting a few things here and there made for him.
It's the least I could do you know.
Have a wonderful weekend!

  3. Oh boy (no pun intended)! You're going to be a knitting/crocheting machine for sure. Better hurry up with Glenn's sweater so he won't be forced to wear it in late summer, you know because it was missing a sleeve or something due to baby projects.

    Have fun!
