Wow, can you believe it’s Monday already?
This past week has been packed with good stuff. Our god daughter came to stay for a night and I was reminded that I will never know true busy and until we have children of our own. I am certainly not used to getting up at 7 to get someone else dressed and further more no one should be forced to go to school if there is frost on the car. Having said that, I think Mog is part of a bigger game of bate and switch. This kid is beyond well behaved. After dinner she sat on the floor between CJ and I playing on the iPad. Then out of nowhere she stands up and (as sweet as can be) says goodnight to CJ. Um… did I miss something? Who said it was bedtime? At precisely 8.30 she put herself to bed and there was not another peep. I went in to wake her at 7.15 to find she was already awake reading her reader in bed. Upon seeing me I got the biggest smile. Are all 7 year olds this cute? I’m betting probably not.
Lots of Family stuff this week. Saturday night, my father-in-law and Pa came for dinner. I’ve also had many trips to Pa’s place this week as we work to bring his unit up to scratch to rent again. I can now proudly say I know how to replace a door knob right down to the tongue. I’m really kicking myself that I forgot to take a photo for PL. Speaking of PL, I have 2 impending PL kits due to drop on my doorstep anytime now. First is Kelly Purkey’s kit from Simon Says Stamp. It was shipped on the 25th, so today would be a reasonable expectation. The second is from a local wonder and newly minted vlogger – Jodie from Polka Dot Creative. It was shipped last Thursday. I’m not going to lie – I really hope the Polka Dot kit gets here first. I am not good with self-restraint. When new toys arrive in the mail I want to play with them NOW! The Polka Dot kit is just a better match for last weeks photos and I’m dying to play with some Maggie Holmes papers. I’ll keep you posted.
The Secret Project is coming along. Progress is slower than I would like because the majority of work is being done of an evening but I will not begin to stitch a new colour unless I’ve taken a progress shot in daylight. Pedantic, I know but I honestly can’t help myself.
What’s been inspiring me this week: I’d have to say this book.
I’m not very far in but already it’s helped me make some changes in order to get more out of my days. I’m sure I’ll probably right a post about it when I have finished reading it.
Our song: got to be ‘Yolo’ by The Lonely Island featuring Adam Levine. What can I say? It cracks me up and even without teeth, Levine is hot.
