experimenting with wood grain for a very special stamp.
garlic flowers on my desk. the entire bedroom smells of garlic, and it's wonderful.
this summer schedule has been so good for my soul.
staying home with little to no schedule for four days straight... that's my idea of a wonderful summer.
finally there is time... time to create... time to mend... time to dream... time to play.
now... i must say... with four children at home for four days straight it certainly isn't all sunshine and rainbows. they get awfully bored and restless after a couple days, so it is certainly a delicate balance. i swore the other day that i might lose it if the bickering didn't stop. luckily it did stop. i am learning that it benefits all of us if i stop here and there to play with the children. i have also been enjoying some time to dream up some ideas for more fun around here. this summer i feel like some of these dreams might finally become a reality.
the dreaming has always come easy to me. it's the making them come true part that i struggle with, but i am working on that.
happy fourth of july friends.
i feel i am celebrating freedom in my own way this year. freedom of schedule.
