OK, first I'm going to say something I'm not lovin'! My shaking! I know, you're all gasping, she never complains about that! And I'm not really, but it does suck when I'm trying to sew. I see the fun things I could make, and William is keen to learn and play with me on the machine, but the old hands just don't wanna work. Type, type they scream! Let's write instead, forget the sewing. And I know, they're right. But it would be a fun hobby for William and I to take up during the upcoming fall and winter months.
So instead of feeling sorry for myself, anymore anyway, I'm going to list things I'm loving and feeling so blessed for.
I love that William is so excited to get back to school that we already had to buy his new backpack and he even tried wearing it to bed. And I love how Scott had to position the book he was reading for bedtime in front of William's boxers in order to make this photo appropriate for the blog.
I love our new bedroom! I love the colour, the flowing curtains, the bedskirt (my I must be growing up!) and more than anything, I love the headboard Scott made me for our wedding anniversary this summer. I also love Rosie's curly hair and that it's long enough to make a perfect ponytail.
As always, I love our garden. We have an overload of zucchinis right now, and I'm shedding and freezing and baking and grilling around the clock it seems, but it's amazing when you step back and thing that we made this food. As William says, 'it's the most local food we can get!' We even have an eggplant in the works.
I love that we are back to swimming lessons for another two weeks and the kids still love it.
I love that I've rediscovered the Stephanie Plum books and they still make me laugh!
I love my friend (who I know has plans for sewing with me tomorrow so hopefully she won't see this blog for a day or so - heehee).
I love that Scott and I got to have a date night last night.
And I love that as I'm writing this, we have a yummy tortiere (that I didn't make :) in the oven, William is in the bathroom downstairs and I can hear him telling stories and talking away, and Rosie and Scott are cuddled on the couch reading stories. So what if I can't sew, so what.
