Yarn Along

So there is nothing on my knitting needles right now, I would love some suggestions on a simple project.
However I have been enjoying these books. I think my favorite would have to be " Little House on the Prairie"

If you have any suggestions on simple knit project that is not a washcloth please share!!

This Moment

{this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

So I know there isn't suppose to be any words " It's hard to follow the rules" I just had to explain this moment. It was a mindful moment for me, I really made the effort to make a special one on one moment with my daughter, yes I need to do it with my son and I need to do it soon since he leaves for an two week summer camp thing, but anyways it was so much fun, we got our toes done, special treat from Starbucks and actually sat and talked that was the best part just sitting.... Have you done that lately? Oh it is so hard!!

Okay so here I find myself at the first day of summer vacation

Wow what a whirl wind!! Sorry for the absence, but this past last winter and spring I have been consumed by the project of licensing my daycare and such. But I am back!!

So today was our first day of summer vacation, in general I am trying to be more of a mindful mom and trying to have our days filled with more meaning full stuff verses getting wrapped up in our crazy over stimulated world. With the business of work I have had to let go of some of my hopes of to do's for the season and comprise a bit. We did get a small raised bed planted so I feel good we are growing something. This year we are not CSA Shares, but I am hoping to find one for the winter that will deliver since it is to hard to go after work.

So with today being first day of summer vacation I took some of the day off and we signed up for the summer reading program through the library and had some fun at the park. Gotta love free things to do around town.
