Snow day

Posted in musings on January 31, 2010 by askthesky

A healthy dose of mixed feelings today…

…happy to have time to catch up on orders and supervise train making…

….tired (so tired) of breaking up fights between cabin feverish siblings…

…still feeling so behind in so many areas.  Frustrating…

…worried about starting yet another elimination diet, but feeling the need to commit fully to see if I can solve some of my physical problems…

Such are my snow day feelings today.

Sensing a theme here…

Here, in no particular order, are some of the tiny people I’ve been hanging around with lately:

My little sis and her little man

I was honored to be present at this little angel's birth!

Dear sweet babies,

Keep coming.  I love you so much.


Aunt Heather

Thanks, Supa!

I was honored to be interviewed by my long-lost (although I know she loves her new city!) friend Mary Beth of Supafine fame for an article she wrote at Meylah about balancing kids and creative work.

And just to juxtapose this perfectly…  I’ve been passing this post over at Illuminated Mind on to every creative person I know- I think there is a lot to be said for going with your creative urges, even if it means being out of balance for a time.  If you’ve been to my house, you know that I’m much more likely to spend hours working on a creative project than keeping my house perfectly clean.  I’m more likely to spend hours on anything, actually.  Even dental work.

Well, maybe not dental work.

Here’s a gratuitous photo of poor Sage, who broke her arm in 5 places this past Monday, trying to hurry down from the top bunk.  We’re still fine-tuning the design for her cast embellishment.
