Can’t help but love these cool mornings. I’m a lover of socks and hoodies, and usually utilize them off and on throughout the summers… but not this summer.
This summer I’ve been found barefoot and in scandalous cami’s, standing in front of the open freezer. So as you can imagine, these brisk fall mornings are welcome here. The girls are sleeping in later these days, now that it’s staying dark later. I would probably sleep later too, if I didn’t love my morning time with my sweetie pie before he heads off to earn an income.
I particularly love the dew on the grass that reflect the sun just popping up from behind a cornfield. I also appreciate the sudden drop in the cricket population.
I didn’t blog yesterday for two reasons…
1. There was a LOT of laundry to be done. For some reason, my once-a-month grocery mindset carries over to laundry. NOT GOOD!
2. I’ve been working on a little somethin-somethin.
It’s actually DONE. But I’m not going to show you until next week, because I like to spread out my creative posts. And I’m mean like that.
Perhaps this picture of my little Delly will make you forgive me?
Did it work?
Lately I’ve been reflecting on how wonderful the internet is. My girl Meg wrote a lovely post on this topic recently, and she’s so so right! I couldn’t possibly have said it better than she did. Girlfriend has a way with words. I feel so blessed to have met so many wonderful friends through the internet and blogging.
Those of you that are regulars here on the blog, and comment occasionally so I know you’re there… well, let’s just say I feel like we’re bff’s. If we could meet in real life, I believe we’d be fast friends.
I had the good fortune of being able to MEET one of my readers a couple days ago! She’s a wonderful seamstress, and had made the girls beautiful dresses when they were born (they just now fit! I’ll have to take pics soon!), and she recently contacted me to let me know she has a ton of fabric, lace and painting supplies to pass on to me.
Some people have such an astounding gift of generosity. And that she thought to give it to ME… a complete stranger… well it’s a little crazy. Crazy-awesome.
I am so grateful and EXCITED to play with all this stuff. For a girl that isn’t very savvy with a sewing machine, I sure do have a love for textiles.
She gave us a TON of painting supplies too, which I couldn’t photograph because it’s in the back of our Jeep that Nick took to work. I’m especially excited to try out some of the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint and Finishing Wax!
Cynthia and I had a lovely visit, and I got to see her home and some of her projects. I so desperately wish I could meet every one of you and snoop around your house.
I would too. I would snoop through your whole house.
I love seeing what other people come up with, and what their décor styles are. It’s a weird obsession right up there with thrifting and garage-saling. I guess all these things could fall into the same compulsive category of loving to see/dig through other people’s stuff.
I’m sure there will be pills for this soon.
I’ll leave you with this picture of the flowers Nick brought home for the girls and I when he returned from his business trip over the weekend.
I hit the jackpot with this boy, I’m tellin’ ya.
