Wow, it’s been a while since we’ve had a coffee date!
I feel like I’ve been a sewing fool lately, at least on here. I’m not actually sewing much more than I usually do, but I finally feel like I’m getting some sort of system worked out for all the blog photos. I found a place in my backyard where I can take decent shots (thanks Crystal for showing me the right angle!) and now that the kiddos are all in school 3 days a week, I can usually talk Albert into taking photos over lunch break for me once a week.
If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that we are finally becoming good Catholics again. Now that J is in kindergarten he officially started religious education class after church on Sundays so we’ve been going every week. It’s been a while and it’s nice to get back in that routine.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that I realized last night that I am such a Midwest girl. I’ve was bi$*^ing all winter and spring about wanting summer, and then I looooooved summer while it was here (short though it was for us). But then last night as I was walking down to my sewing room, I had this fleeting thought about how nice it would feel to put on a thick sweater, leggings and slippers, and curl up under a warm blanket with my knitting while it snowed. Yep. I like my seasons just like a good Midwestern girl!
If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that I am sitting here right now listening to Baby J refuse his nap. I put him down about an hour ago and he’s been talking and now fussing in his bed ever since. J and N both gave up napping entirely at 2 1/2 and I fear that Baby J will follow suit. On the one hand I will miss the quiet time that a nap provides, but on the other hand it is soooooo much easier to schedule out our day when we don’t have worry about a nap!
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that we’re in what is probably the most gorgeous time of the year here. The temps still top out in the low- to mid-80s, but it’s 60s in the morning and evenings. It’s sunny and dry with that beautiful clear blue sky that John Denver sang about. One of my favorite times of year.
Well, it’s clear that a nap isn’t happening today, so I’m headed to get the baby boy up and go about our day.
If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
