So this week was much better. Wa-hoo! I felt so good I even busted out the old sewing machine and started a new project using this thrifted humongous wedding dress that I stole for $9.99.
All that material and beading… You’ll never guess what magical transformation I’m endeavoring to tackle with it.
I can’t wait to show you the finished projects. I’m giddy with excitement every moment that I squeeze into working on it.
The kiddo’s don’t have school today so I’m letting them sleep in a bit. But when they get up we are going to have some fun.
My baby turned 4 this last week and I’m still in shock over it. Don’t know whether it’s the shock from surviving four years of one of the most active, energetic wonders born on the planet or…
Could it be four years of rubbing shoulders with a miracle that leaves me bursting with joy every time she hugs me. My little Hope has taught me more about God’s love than nearly any other person I know.
So I’ll take the frantic exercise in discovering what she’s up to any day; because it means another day of living with a true miracle and angel.
I do however, think it’s high time I taught her how to play with babies. She’s always holding them upside down.
Future grandkids beware if I don’t.
Guess what else? I saw Fuzzy-Wuzzy the bear again on Wednesday night as I was coming home from my Scripture Study Meeting. Had my camera in hand and everything. But the darn thing was on the wrong setting and he lumbered into the tall grass before I could get it right. So I snapped this picture when I got home instead. Our rickety fence was very haunted looking and even though I’ve been meaning to get out and fix it, I think I’ll wait until after Halloween since it lends itself to an eerie atmosphere.
When I was little I loved the fact that George and Mary Bailey renovated an old home for their own.
I’ve often dreamed of buying an older character home and making it mine. Who’d have thought that I’d be living that dream with my very own newer home. I’ve watched it crumble around me to the point where I think it has a mind of it’s own.
Lately though, the scary abode hasn’t been so scary. (Knock on wood, because I’m not begging for something new to break down.) I’m actually starting to get excited again about reclaiming all of it’s broken parts. Dreaming of claw foot tubs, farm sinks, cream cabinets, tiled floors, and fresh paint. The home is 18 years old and it might take us another 18 years to scratch up the money to reclaim it – but I feel it will happen.
Now I’m off to play with the kids and dream of course.
