This is my next to last Friday at home (except for the occasional one that I plan to take vacation for.) It’s sort of bittersweet to me – after three slow years of business things are starting to pick up again. That’s good for the pocketbook, but I’m really going to miss those (non-weekend) days with F. Her sister was off school today as well, so the three of us ran around enjoying the sixty degree weather and sunshine after a long gray week. After lunch we walked outside a bit and down to the bookstore where I picked up made to play by Joel Henriques. I follow his blog made by joel (linked in the sidebar) and I’m excited about doing some of the projects in here with E. She would much rather make her gifts than buy them, and I plan to capitalize on that and start some gift-making evenings with her after the little one is in bed. This is a great book to use as a jumping off point, and I’m already contemplating locking it up for the next two weeks while I tackle some bigger things on my to-do list.
I got this book as well – Extra Yarn by Mac Barnett. Lovely illustrations by one of my favorite illustrators, Jon Klassen. And I convinced the girls that the paint store can be fun when it’s located next to a custard stand. Picking out some possible paint colors for a few more projects. When I was uploading these three photos I realized that they all have very similar colorways, especially when looking at thumbnail sized photos. Sometimes there is a method to my madness.
I’m super excited about this week’s 52 projects… but I need to get back to a few more things I’ve got up my sleeves. Hope you had a nice Friday.
