Wow, it's just been crazy busy around our house the past couple of weeks. I've worked a bunch of nights, which is great for the paycheck, but not so much for creativity. Sleep just has to become the priority, along with making sure I give each of my kiddos some quality time.
The weather's getting crisp here in New England and the leaves are starting to change. I'm waiting a bit longer before I start snapping some foliage shots, though. The black bear in our neighborhood has been making a few more guest appearances in the woods near where I walk Harley. I have to confess I've been a bit spooked to walk the dog at night. Hope Mr. Bear hibernates soon.
The color yellow has been making me happy lately. I bought myself some new sneakers, and as soon as I saw these, I had to have them. I've decided to start walking when I can, and these make me feel more excited about it, LOL.
My Monday night CBS show have restarted. I was so excited that Horatio Kane was not killed off on Miami CSI. Even though he seriously overacts, I love David Caruso in this role. I just laugh at him sometimes. One of these days, I swear I am gonna count how many times he removes and reapplies his sunglasses in an episode. I bet the number will be over 20!
Tommy decided to boycott gymnastics classes last week. He flat out refused to go. I realized that he is probably to pooped to play on Thursday afternoons. He rides around the world all week while we drive the bigger kids to their activities. He goes to preschool 2 mornings a week. He generally does it all without a complaint. By the time Thursdays at 4pm roll around, he's had it. I figured I needed to give the little guy some downtime so we withdrew from the class. And I enjoyed taking a 2 hour nap with him on the couch. Message received, little man, loud and clear!
Speaking of Tommy... Here is a layout I made about him tonight. I did this for Challenge #3 in the Top Designer contest at Bad Girls:
I used their Sept kit for this page, which needed to have white space and demonstrate "less is more." Gasp! If you know me, you'll know that this was a HUGE challenge for me. But I'm so happy with how this turned out.
I really like the Glitz "table of elements" paper. I may need to get some more of it. Keeping fingers crossed that it will get me through to the next round.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
