1. We are teaching Sawyer English and Portuguese, so it is always a proud moment when some of the Portuguese comes out. During bath, he held up two "0's" and said, "Óculos, mamãe!" (Glasses, mommy!) Not only is he genius enough to make glasses out of 0's, he also made the announcement in Portuguese. Yes, totally bragging on my smart kid.
2. Bedroom in progress. I still have two big projects to do - a headboard and curtains. I have a few smaller things I'd like to do, but I am waiting for just the right inspiration to strike.
3. I've started working out, trying to make it a habit. I'll let you know how that goes. I have some pretty big goals that I'm not ready to announce for fear of failing miserably. Who wants to make grand statements and fall flat on their face? Not I.
4. We set up Sawyer's little pool this weekend and loaded him up with frozen sugar water. I can't believe summer is almost here.
Since I have slowed down things on the blog, I am really seeing a change in my creativity. I find myself full of ideas, appreciating the time I have with my son, and focusing on being healthy. When I'm not busy editing, writing, proofing and promoting, my mind has time to be inspired. I can really see how women make blogging a full time job. There is so much back work that goes into all this. Since I already have a full time job, I am just working on finding the right pace and balance for me. The time and effort I am willing to put into my blog might change over time, but I don't think my desire to create ever will, so I think this blog will be around for a long time. There really isn't any point to any of this. Just checking in to say hi, share some cute pictures of Sawyer, and let you know that I'm here. Hope you all have a great week!
