Getting His Craft On - Last year, when he was in school part time, we used to have our Monday craft days.  I miss creating with him.  So when Charlie asked if he could make a craft after dinner I was thrilled to open the craft cupboard and watch him go.

Empty-  The feelings of emptiness that seem to come each winter wont last forever.  I remind myself of this as I try hard to fight off the winter blues.

At The End of The Day - weekly self portrait -
What do you dream about at the end of the day?

Sick Day - It was a PD day, but I wouldn't have sent Charlie to school today anyway.  The sniffles that he had been trying to fight off all week turned into a full blown nasty head and chest cold last night.  He must have been feeling miserable because I noticed that his favourite comfort items, Mr.Bunny and Blanket were being towed around the house with him.  Hope he feels like himself again soon.

Hands - Saturday afternoon in my sunlit living room; ten hands, fifty fingers each busy doing their own thing as the the five of us connected with each other.

My Life - In blog land it's easy to show the pretty side of your life.  It's simply a matter of editing your words and images.  Sunday was the perfect winter's day to go for a hike.  At the campground, I asked the kids to stand together so I could get a picture of the three of them.  I walked to the end of the dock, and when I turned to face them again, my bitchy hormonal teens had found something to bicker about again.  Welcome to my not too perfect, perfect life.

Nervously Waiting - For the second day in a row I found myself waiting at the Drive Test center with my daughter.  On Monday we waited together for almost an hour.  With a long line ahead of us, we were sent home before Kenzie had a chance to do the written portion of her drivers licence.  But on Tuesday, I sat alone, nervously waiting with my fingers crossed that she was going to pass.  She did.  Oh boy, here we go.

Itty Bitty Rainbow - On Wednesday morning two itty bitty rainbows appeared with the sunrise.  I felt like it was a sign, that it was going to be a lucky day.  Perhaps even an itty bitty pot of gold at the end of it.  A girl can hope, can't she?

  1. I love them all, and think the not so perfect life is a perfect picture, but the jars and daisies stand out, so pretty.
