We haven’t sat down to coffee in a while, have we? No time like the present!
Goodness, how have you been? If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that June just flew by! I have such a backlog of projects to tell you about, too. Hopefully I’ll get some time to photograph a few this week/weekend, assuming that the weather cooperates.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that a monster of a storm blew through here last night. I was in the middle of dinner with the kids (Albert was teaching so he was at the gym) when we had to take a break from dinner and retreat to the basement for 30 minutes or so. It was all pretty novel for the kids, since they got to curl up on the couch and watch some Thomas and Friends in the middle of dinnertime, which never happens!
If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that we had a great Fourth of July holiday! J and N got to see their first-ever Fourth of July fireworks. We went to the big celebration centered around my office building (it was very convenient to have building access for bathrooms, etc). We picnicked, played cards, and threw the baseball around while waiting for night to fall. J was completely enthralled by the fireworks, declaring the Fourth of July to be the best night EVER! N, on the other hand, hates loud noises, so she spent the entire fireworks show with her hands covering her ears begging to go home. But the next day she informed me that the fireworks were beautiful and magnificent and the best part of the show. So I guess it was all right in the end.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you to expect to see less of J, N and Baby J here and on Instagram. I’ll still post about the things I make them (in fact, I have a couple of unblogged items I made for N in the last few weeks), but Albert and I have made a conscious decision to reduce their appearance on our social media. There are a number of people that we know (and probably more that we don’t) who lurk our pages solely to see pictures of our kids, and it kind of creeps us out. So no offense meant to any of you lovely people, but they have to be our first priority.
If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
