It seems like the busyness of summer is a common lament around blogland lately. Life around here is no different. Summer is always packed with fun and exciting events, putting up the products of the garden and trying to maintain a bit of sanity at the same time.
This week has been a bit busier than normal as we added four grandchildren to the mix. Mommy and Daddy went to Hawaii for the week and had a wonderful trip with only minor rain from the hurricanes. Life was not boring with a 1, 2 1/2, 4 and 5 1/2 year old in the house. We loved it, but it was really nice to have some quite time yesterday once everyone left. Can you guess that I was also missing from the blogging world?
I have missed my sewing time lately so I slipped away to my creative room and left the cleaning until today. My Spider Web leader and ender project has been so close to being finished so I did the last two blocks and then sewed it together. It ended up to be about 70” square.
Today was so quiet. I missed the early morning snuggles with the little ones, but it felt good to have clean floors and windows!! How could you not miss these faces?
The two year old went to Costco with Grandpa on Saturday and picked out a bouquet of flowers for Grandma. Doesn’t this just look like something a 2 year old would choose????
We had a little excitement while the children were here. Our tortoise eggs started hatching. The little ones kept a close eye on the activity although the process is quite slow. Two out and three more to go…..
Some of the grandchildren headed back to school today. How can that be? The rest go back next week. Where has the summer gone?
