Last weekend was our long weekend. It was busy. In a good, I am excited to see what summer is going to be like way.
Despite the long weekend, Anthony still had his karate lesson. He is enjoying it. This week is his last class and then he has a few weeks until golf starts.
I should mention that Saturday was B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L. Sunday is P.O.U.R.E.D all day and Monday was nice.
So one of them decided that we needed a victory bbq at her house. We got to tag along even though I didn't run;) Cuz my friends are good like that! There's a triathalon next summer that I am thinking to training for (because I triathalon is about the only way you are going to get me to run........) We shall see....
Our daughter's hanging out waiting for the food!
I have been painting the boys' room since February. It needed a whole lot of primer (b.r.i.g.h.t blue and neon orange........great colours, just not if you EVER plan on painting over them!) And I just haven't had the motivation to get it done.
I told Owen by his birthday. His birthday was a week ago (tomorrow) and well.....The ceiling, baseboards and trim have finally got one coat of white on it. Tomorrow my hope is to give the ceiling a second coat early morning then go get the green paint and get the first coat on the walls. That way I will feel like finishing it (maybe)
Right now that boys have their mattresses upstairs in the computer room, making it a bit tight for space, but I knew that if I put the beds back together I would feel even LESS like getting the painting done.
Overwhelmed lately with not a lot of desire to do a lot. I try, over the course of the day to do the things that are important, that matter, that can't be put off. My laundry pile is manageable. I gave in and used the dryer the other day because it has rained for almost a week straight and I really really wanted to keep that mountain at bay.
sunshine and blue skies
friends who feed us yummy pizza
kids who love to be outside
a photography business that is slowly growing (God is good)
planning of summer activities
the thought of camping
cats that like to curl up with me
kids that drive me crazy and make me laugh all at the same time
friends I can talk to honestly
green (very looooooong) grass covered with (even longer) dandelions
rain, rain and more rain.
a drive to the border for prints and a little boy who talked the whole way.
joy among the sadness that just seems to plague lately
new leaves and the gentle green of the buds
