Lazy week...

This week the boys and I are working hard at having a lazy week. Since almost every moment of this summer has felt filled to the brim with other craziness, we are taking this week for us. No hard and fast schedule. No rushing around. Few errands. But still, there's a lot going on.

1. Recovering from Max's crazy birthday party. We had 48 people here Sunday afternoon, and it was wonderful - more to come on that in another post.

2. Thrift store gathering. Between Sewing Green and the new Handmade Home that I am expecting on the doorstep any moment, there's some fun recycle sewing to be done. And I have fallen all kinds of in love with fun old 60's and 70's sheets and pretty handkerchiefs.

3. Trying to figure out which house projects to tackle before heading back to work. DO I paint the playroom/craft room, the guest room, or really work on cleaning up the woodwork and trim. And which floor should we work on first?

4. Cementing daycare plans. I visited another center for Luke this morning, and am pretty sure it's the one. But I still have to visit one or two more to make sure.

5. Art time with the boys. There hasn't been nearly enough this summer. And I have some ideas I want to try with canvases for a couple spots in the house.

So, all in all, still a lot going on - but in our time and at our pace. Love it.

Fantastic! You and the boys need and deserve much more down time than you get; but I guess that is why you appreciate and treasure it so much. Have a great week and keep me in mind for boy watching, etc. if you want to work on one of those projects.

Your projects sound like fun. I will look forward to seeing them. Especially cute pic of Luke. Love you all!

I can't wait to see projects! Hope the day care visit goes well.

I love that you are such a conscious mama. I wish we were neighbors. :)
