Tuesday Tidbits

The weather has been incredible the last few days - low humidity, 60's at night and high's in the upper 70's/low 80's. Makes me ready for fall!

Rory is so funny. She likes nothing more than to do chores around the house. Especially when Camden/Brian are gone, she wants to stay busy working around the house. Who am I to argue with a kid who wants to clean bathrooms for fun? Peel carrots? Sure! Make all the beds? Knock yourself out!

My sleeping woes are well-documented, but I've recently had a new scenario repeat itself. I'm so tired that I go to bed and can't remember it the next morning. Like literally have no memory of going to bed. And the reason I'm so tired? Because I am regularly waking up at 1:00 on the dot and staying awake until 3:30ish. Awesome.

I bought Heather Bailey fabric nearly 8 months ago with plans to make pillows or a throw for our living room. I gave up that idea long ago (because, really, who was I kidding?), but thanks to my mom, my couch is sporting some new pillows. I LOVE the bright colors, and there's more on the way. Now if I could only get our family canvas hung up on the wall.

Over the last 7-10 days, I've heard in a myriad of different ways the following concept. There's nothing you can do that will make God love you less. Nothing. And the overwhelming enormity of that fact is what motivates us to *do* for God.

Because Brian and Camden were out camping last night, I let Rory sleep with me. Sleeping in our bed is never something we've done regularly so it's a big deal. Watching Sesame Street in bed almost made up for feeling left although I have to say Elmo is just as annoying as he used to be. And isn't almost 7 a little old for Sesame Street?

I did 3 weeks worth of Project Life yesterday, which is a good step towards being caught up. I also discovered that I never did my June Favs page, which isn't good because it's time for July Favs already!


Yes, I know I skipped week 28.

Great, now I have to go research Heather Bailey fabrics...those pillows are yummy!!!
And try Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood. It plays on PBS and is the cartoon version of Mr Roger's neighborhood. The story lines are SO SO SO good. I've found myself repeating them often because the boys will listen...and as a HUGE bonus, it is much less annoying than Elmo. :)

LOVE LOVE LOVE the pillows! And I'm pretty sure that we are watching shows meant for a younger crowd here too. Better than shows meant for an older crowd... right?!
