linking up again with jeannett from life rearranged!
thank you jeannett for reminding me to do posts on our every day lives!
a shot of my fun necklace – a little fancy, a little edgy.
on saturday we walked downtown to the i madonarri festival – celebrating italian street painting. it was so fun!
the works people do are amazing! and this is on bumpy asphalt, not nice smooth concrete.
we had lunch at our favorite coffee shop and just took our time all day. its been so long since we’ve had a day to do nothing. and it will be so long until we do it again since soccer games start this weekend.
a working night. i love working in my bed. so often i have to be in the playroom where all my supplies are, or cutting at my table, but when i get to do all handwork, like on these bloom belts, i just kick back in bed and put on a movie. or two.
*side note – this pic was taken the last night i slept in my room – about 4 days ago! we had a RAT (!!!) in there (dead and gone now) and i am very slowly cleaning it now. and getting grossed out the whole time!*
and since i stayed up so late saturday night, on sunday morning i neeeeded some coffee. my pretty new bible, a cup of cream and sugar with a drop of coffee, and my trusty clutch. i was supposed to help in lily’s class but they didn’t need me, and sean was helping in silas’, so i had an hour to myself, which was really quite nice.
sean got an ipad so we were playing with it with my sister-in-law, who is always good for a laugh!
i spotted this globe and these books (vintage – on insects and a high school dictionary) at my favorite thrift store last week in their window display. they change out their displays on mondays, so i hurried in to snatch these up first thing!
i got a happy little package from deco art! now i just need to find some time to do something with it!
while gracie was at soccer practice and lily was teaching herself how to pump on the swings, silas was cruising on his bike. he always tries tricks – one hand, no legs, standing up on the peddles, dropping off curbs (or “curves”). but he has been doing this side saddle thing lately.
and then he decided to try standing up! he did it so well i wasn’t even worried a bit! he even stood up with both feet on the seat! but my favorite of all his tricks is when he rides around with a thumbs up high in the air. he feels really cool and wants a thumbs up back – its so cute!
so, what did you do this week? and did you take pictures? you should link up, too!
