Tiny, frozen glimpses into my own days always reminds me that everything is good, all good. I haven't been using the "big camera" recently and today I have realized how much I've missed it. To freeze in time what we know to always be there is what polishes gratitude for me, making it all bright and shiny so that I don't miss a beat. But I don't need to tell you that, now do I?
See my iPhone next to my laptop? The entire back of that sucker is shattered. That phone has lasted for almost 4 years, including through a dunk in the pool. I dropped it yesterday, in it's case, and now the case is the only thing holding it together. It still works, so that makes me happy. But instead of a Vitamix blender for my birthday, it might be a phone.
The poster there behind the Lego city is my son's report on John D. Rockefeller. A report done for himself, not for school or anyone else. Autodidacticism, alive and well :). He loves the stories of the Rockefellers, the Carnegie's, and the Vanderbilts, and if his Lego city is any indication, perhaps he will build something big one day, too :). Oh, and I've made 9 panels of curtains in the past several weeks, including the ones you see in the girl's room. I like making curtains :), though they cost me just as much as buying them. Fabric is love.
The last shot is a tiny glimpse of my almost completed workshop. It's painted and organized, the curtains sewn, just a few more things to go on the walks and it's finished. First order of workshop business though is to start mending the girl's Puffalump. Well, it was mine, and now it's hers, and so it goes...
This weekend begins summer vacation for my kids, and next week will mark my
It's all good :).
Have a gorgeous weekend friends...
