This past week I hit a bit of the blues for a day or two. I think it was a result of being overwhelmed as a mom, for no particular reason other than occasionally it's overwhelming caring for & worrying about five growing & very-important-to-me people.
I'm feeling better now.
We slept in our new room for the first time last night. I love it.
I haven't been reading as much as I was back in the dark ages of winter, but I just finished Maisie Dobbs #9 and really liked it. I'm eager to start The Happiness Project next.
The grammatical error that befuddles me the most is when I read the words "could of."
Could've is a contraction of the words could have. Could "of" makes no sense to me at all.
Good to get that off my chest.
I find satisfaction in a good design challenge. I
recently got to contribute in designing the layout for a kitchen remodel
Mitch is being contracted to do.
The other day I designed business cards for him, too. I'm excited to see how they turn out.
Our neighbor Marianne turned 95 this weekend. She called to let us know her visiting family had gone back home to the city, wondering if we'd like to come over for an evening visit. She shared candy & was looking festive in a pretty necklace & her hair recently done. She'd been out on the town earlier in the day with her sister, who turned 100 last summer.
I've said it time & time again: Amazing ladies.
Speaking of amazing people.. I've become acquainted with so many interesting people around our world through blogging, people I've grown fond of. This week some big things were shared.
One set a new world record for the number of women skydivers over sixty in a formation. I'm so happy for DJan (who happens to be over seventy & has decided this will likely be her last season of playing in the sky.)
Another made a grueling climb to the top of Mt. St. Helens on skis & shared about it. Linda rocks. What an inspiration. You can read about her adventurous feat here.
And yet another decided to leave her blog behind. I respect a person doing what they feel is right for them.
I finally did it. I ordered a smart phone. It will be here tomorrow.
Paradoxical that a plan with data will cost less than our old plan without, when I was mainly holding out because I couldn't justify the cost.
And I finally did this, too. I tried out a water color effect.
This barn in North Dakota was one of many wonderful, simple things I photographed there.
That's all for now.
