On a happier note, the sun FINALLY came out on Saturday! It had been days since we had last seen it, and I must say it was a lovely relief from the storms we had been experiencing. Dan and I took the girls to Lake Benson and went for a nature walk. We brought a bucket and filled it up with treasures like leaves and pine cones and sticks. We walked down to the waters edge and threw rocks into the lake. Dan then took the girls over to the playground to eat a picnic lunch and play for a while. I got some much needed alone time with my ipod and the trails around the lake. It felt really good to get some exercise with the bright sun warming me! It was a good afternoon and I'm glad we made the effort to get our sick selves out of the house even if it was only for a couple hours.
On today's menu is more of the same. Cartoons. Snacks. Naps. Books. I'm going to try and squeeze in a little sewing this afternoon if the girls will let me. I'm working on a Thanksgiving tree and would like to have it finished before....you guessed it, Thanksgiving. There is a lot of embroidery which is a bit time consuming.....we'll see what happens. I have a lot of balls in the air right now that I'm trying to juggle, but I'm not gonna stress out over it. My kids come first, my lofty crafting ideas can wait. Enjoy your Monday!
Of course I had to add a pic of Charlotte trying to eat something she shouldn't. Typical Charlotte! :)
I've been allowing Maddie to use my camera recently. Teaching her how to take pictures. This shot is one of hers. I think she did a really good job! Great depth of field, good focus on her subject.....she's a natural!!
