I run from hate
I run from prejudice
I run from pessimists
But I run too late
I run my life
Or is it running me
Run from my past
I run too fast
Or too slow it seems
When lies become the truth
That’s when I run to you
(Lyrics from Lady Antebellum)
I have been in a mood, a not too pleasant one, hopefully when the clouds lift so will this crappy mood.
It has been a weekend of best intentions, even as I write this I intended to write this yesterday, ah well. No matter what Ken and I did this last weekend nothing seemed to go right. Despite it all I still kept reminding myself to take it all in and bottle up those little memories that are fleeting. Like the one shown here, a little girl in love with her little brother and wanting to hold him all weekend. Time to slow down and take it all in. My newest mantra.
I am thinking... I really should purchase a family pass to our local "pool"
I am thankful for... being a momma
From the kitchen... started eating a more organic/local diet. Loving it!
I am wearing... business attire, and my favorite kitten heels
I am creating... a few quilt squares, and dreaming of paintings
I am going.. to buy some distressing ink
I am reading.. the second book in the twilight series
I am hoping... to get my hair cut and dyed very soon
I am hearing... the AC kicking in at the office
Around the house... we got new curtains in the kitchen, such a difference
One of my favorite things... is spending my evenings with my kids
A few plans for the rest of the week... work until Friday, chill out in the AC as much as possible, 90's & 100's dont agree with me, too hot!
A picture to share...
(because of the weather we have half "nay-nay" kids around here)
Wash his car.
And of course she needed to wash her own wheels!
An hour later, I had finished
(she had better things to do like playing with the hose of course!)
hand dried and all!
I have a feeling more car washes are in our future, for even non-occasion days.
What did y'all do to show your love/appreciation for the father's in your life?
After having Kenson my feeling towards sewing was eh, now it is must sew now! I am glad I feel that way again it has been a missed feeling.
What projects are you itching to do lately?
Now I want to make one for myself, I am just not sure what “inspirational” quote I want. Any ideas?
These peonies. They aren’t “mine” but our landlord doesn’t live on site and I know he wont mind.
Leila has learned how to peddle her tricycle.
Painting, we are still in the honeymoon phase.
Estate sales on my lunch hour.
Getting to take walks with the kids.
The ants that come with peonies (something I didn’t realize)
Not getting anything done this weekend
Teething baby’s restless nights
That summer hasn’t even begun and it will be over so soon!
Lucky for me she loves it and refers to it as Grandma and Papa’s house since it is a country/lodge type setting. And while my parents don’t live in a lodge, have chickens, or any animals for that matter, they do live in the country and farms are a plenty all around us.
Now if I could stop setting up the toys and taking pictures. And I MUST stay out of our local toy store so I don’t buy a ton more!
It was one of those weekends where a lot was done but I was still left feeling like I could have gotten more done and wished I had. We tried to spend a fair amount of time outside in between rain showers and Ken was bound and determined to grill out each night, which I am happy to report, with a umbrella by his side (just in case), he was able to each night.
How was your weekend? Anything exciting? Did it fly by too quickly?
See you Monday!
And after the race we had a nice long wait in our car (30 minutes no joke) to get out of the parking lot so lots of funny pictures were taken!
