I’m a bad blogger…

Wow, am I a bad blogger or what! I haven’t posted a new blog since the end of May and it’s now the middle of July! Bad bad blogger 😦  I’m a good tweeter though, I Twitter almost every day! 🙂  Does that give me some sort of redemption?  lol 

It’s sunday and I’m feeling goofy today. We finally got moved and mostly settled. Still haven’t gotten everything where I want it but it’s workable. Need to rearrange the kitchen cabinets a bit to make the kitchen flow a bit smoother but overall I really like our new home 🙂  Need to figure out where to put my collection of mason and other miscellaneous jars (they’re still in the boxes I packed them in). Hate to put breakables on shelves because I’ve had a few fall down and everything broke.  That’s just heartbreaking when it’s something that can’t be replaced.  I’ll figure it out I’m sure…one of these days! lol  🙂

Kids are enjoying our new town. The library is within walking distance so my kids are …  ready for this … going to the library almost every day … and it’s SUMMER!  They’re reading and participating in the classes and I think it’s just wonderful!  They have a lot more responsibilities here than they did out in the cornfield, such as a pool to clean every day and a yard overflowing with plants and flowers that must be weeded and tended.  They’re doing great and every day I notice I don’t have to remind them quite as much as the day before to do their ‘chores’. 

I’m gearing up for what is normally Christmas in July at HeartStrings Embroidery – but this year I’m calling it Happy Everything!  I think my overall theme this year will be the seasons.  4 season quilt blocks and a bunch of other things all revolving around the seasons or months or days of the week.  Haven’t decided what all new designs I will have, but they’ll be lots plus a freebie every day. If you have a suggestion for a design you’ve been wanting, let me know.  I have wonderful artists that can draw anything so give me a shout out!

Well I’ve rambled quite a bit now. I need to get busy doing my ‘chores’..the pool needs vacuumed, weeds need pulled and I need to put together our new (to us) pool table.  A little funny…my kids asked me if I could not PRIM out the rec room!  🙂  ROFL  I thought that was too funny!  lol  So I guess that means no saltbox or willow trees or tea-dye allowed in there…rofl rofl 

Have a great day & SMILE 🙂

Putting off what I should be doing…

Ok – by sitting here typing on my blog I am putting off what I SHOULD be doing which is packing up this house!  We’ve only lived here a year, how in the world did we accumulate so much JUNK!  My kids’ rooms look like a paper mill threw up (not a pretty site..lol).  I wonder how many trees I could actually regrow with the amount of paper my girls have accumulated.  Legos – on my word – do my boys have legos!  We have legos under the beds, between the beds and walls  and in the closet.  No wonder they keep telling me they don’t have enough to make this or that – they can’t find half of them!  lol  🙂 

I complain about this in good nature 🙂  Legos and drawing papers are good things – it shows that my children are creative and they explore it and utilize it.  As a creative, artistist mom – that makes me so happy 🙂  I very much enjoy their drawings and looking at what they build.  Some times their ideas might be far-fetched, but at least they have ideas.  I love watching their gears turn in their minds when they are sitting with paper and crayon or have a stack of blocks in front of them.  It does my artist’s heart good and tugs on my HeartStrings (ohhh, just had to ya know… lol)

Sooo – I am now going to get up and GET BUSY!!!  The U-Haul will be here friday morning (it’s now wednesday morning) and we want to load it and go.  The new place is an hour and a half east so we only want to make one trip. 

Everyone have a great day 🙂  and smile at someone 🙂 you’ll be amazed at how good it feels.

Prim Blessings, Stephanie
