This week has been a busy week for me, but I am loving every minute of it and then some. After feeling under the weather for some time, I am just happy to be feeling back to my normal self again. The weather here in Ohio has been cold and dreary however I was so excited when I saw the sunshine this evening. I am a major sunshine person if you haven’t figured that out yet (lol). Today was a great day for me. I got alot accomplished and had a wonderful little lunch date right in the middle of the day. Yep, if you guessed that my lunch date was my 2 1/2 year old son then you were absolutely correct. I fixed Cameron and I grilled cheese and tomato soup and it was so yummy. A perfect meal for a colder then normal day. I love that he enjoys alot of the things I like, I also love the fact that he watches what I do then turns around and does it himself. Yep, he dipped his grilled cheese into the soup and ate it……just like him Momma. I so enjoy being able to stay at home with him. I don’t know if I ever shared this with all of you, but I knew before I ever got pregnant that when God blessed us with a child, that I would want to stay home with them until they went to school. Well, God blessed me with this opportunity and my husband works hard to make it happen. Oh, don’t get me wrong….. it is a struggle every single month and I often think about going back to work, but when I look at my son, I realize that even though we struggle to make ends meet that it is the right thing for him and for me. I guess I have always thought that you can’t get back those years and I feel as though there is nothing more precious then spending these special years with him while I can. Yep, I am totally blessed and I thank my Heavenly Father daily for him and this opportunity to be his Mom and best Mommy that I can be. It really is a gift. Thank You God for such a wonderful blessing!!
On to a totally different note…… I am so happy to be able to get back to my crafting. I have missed it so much and the past couple days have been wonderful. Yep, I put my handy dandy surgical mask on and went out to the garage to do some crafting. With asthma and a few other health problems….. I have to be extra cautious when I sand things and work with my crafts. I just don’t want to stir things up again and be down and out again. No Way!! Do you remember my signs and game-boards that I made myself the other day? Well, I finally was able to sand them and stain them and here they are all finished up. They are just drying, but I thought I would post a picture anyway. My favorite has to be the Olde Black Crow Coffee sign….. love it and I will be adding that to my selling blog as well so be watching out for that and remember that Christmas is just around the corner. Any of these would make great gifts!!
Do you remember that toy box that I was re-finishing? Well, I was able to get it sanded and stained as well. So, once it has any opportunity to dry then I will be able to move it into the family room and hide alot of these toys that I fall over on a daily basis (lol). I am definitely pleased with the way it turned out. I decided to paint it red over black and the neat thing about the red that I picked out is that it is the same exact red that I have on my kitchen walls. It just took on a totally different look and I love it. Let’s take a look – ok?
So, do you love it as much as I do? Uh yeah, I love it. Definitely proud of this piece!!
Well, it is time for Criminal Minds and I can’t miss seeing Shemar Moore, so I better run for now.
Until Next Time……blessings to you all.
