my corner








i'm feeling a bit under the weather this weekend, and the literal weather outside is also out of sorts. we have a tropical front moving in off of the pacific and it's bringing hard winds and a lot of rain. i plan on spending most of my day either in my corner wrapped in that down comforter or snuggled in my bed with a down comforter... a cup of herbal tea close... and a hot water bottle.... oh yes. then i will alternate between reading, sewing, knitting, and constantly snuggling my babes.... and quite possibly some board games in bed... doesn't that sound lovely? it sounds very lovely to me because i don't feel up for much else at the moment.

the blue yarn above is for layla's dolls hair, we plan to make some progress this weekend and hopefully end up with a full head of hair for kelsie at the end of it.

the picture is very special to me. our friend heikki from finland drew it during one of his visits. he is an artist and so our children prompt him to draw picture after picture while he is here...  and they have most of them in their rooms tucked away here or there for safe keeping. but update: i discovered the artist responsible for this favorite of mine is actually my dear friend erin riley! love you erin. this one i kept for myself... it was drawn on torn, crumpled paper, that had already been drawn on by a little one... and it is a portrait of our family from when i was pregnant with ollie (notice the little +1 pointing to my belly?). another thing i love about this photo is that all of the kids are drawn wearing their halloween costumes, which i think they were wearing the day she drew it. they loved those halloween costumes and i believe that was the year they were wearing them constantly. so special. heikki has no idea that i framed this picture or that it is so special to me. i suppose i should tell him. 

anyway, i have some tea and snuggling to get too... i wish you a wonderful weekend that is full of whatever you want it to be full of.
