Daybook Monday

FOR TODAY...25th of July 2011

Outside My Window...Dark, raining, empty garage.

I am thinking...that I should be doing something other than blogging...but this is the least strenuous thing on my list at the moment.

I am thankful for...peace and quiet...don't get to experience it very often, but when I do I am so very very thankful for it :)

From the kitchen...Homemade soup, homemade sausage rolls, yummy Ciabatta from Aussie Farmers.

I am wearing...Pjyamas already...may as well be comfortable when I'm not expecting any visitors.

I am creating...Bibs for the drooly baby...I can't believe the amount of liquid that comes out of this boys mouth...I've never been a big fan of the permanently attached bib, but so many extra changes of clothing is making me think very seriously about it. My girls NEVER drooled like this.

I am be listing some furniture on ebay...we have an overabundance of can one declutter a house when the clutter is so BIG??

I am hearing...the tap tap tap of the keyboard as I type...silence is golden:)

Around the house...Little darlings sleeping peacefully. Mr Pixies out, clean folded washing trying to eat my dining table.

One of my favourite things...My oldest girl telling me she loves me...alot...and often.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Rearrange some furniture, get some sewing done, clean that sewing room AGAIN, why does it not stay tidy???

A photo to share...been a little bit lite on photos recently, dark dreary weather, everyone being sick, getting back into the Kinder run all thwarting me at every turn.
Who is this??

She's two and a half years old...

and the strangest little kid...

I wanted to write a piece about all her little idiosyncrasies...she has many...but I'm sleep deprived and my head hurts, so I thought I would just share the photos...

Maybe I will be thinking straight again by the time she is three!!

Daybook Monday

FOR TODAY...11th of July 2011

Outside My Window...My neighbour warming up his stupid WRX...It makes my windows shake, and he insists on letting it sit and run for at least 5 minutes before he drives it all times of the day and night...multiple times a day.

I am thinking...That my kids have WAY TOO MANY clothes...the washing basket is full within half a day of doing all the washing...and the clothes sure aren't mine (I am lacking in clothes at the moment)

I am thankful heater...although affording the gas to run it could become an issue before too long...Thanks Joolya!!

From the kitchen...Homemade baby food...I never in a million years would have thought I would be giving my baby boy solids before six months...but he's a hungry one. Opens his mouth for the spoon like a hungry little bird. I can tell by the pitch of his grumpy squealing when he is wanting solid food...he's growing up too fast, can't we freeze time? PLEASE??

I am wearing...Moccasins on my feet...I'm allowed to be a westie in my own feet are warm, it's not like I'm going to wear them to the supermarket or anything.

I am creating...a much tidier sewing room

I am try and get to Geelong one day this week...doesn't seem likely at this stage.

I am hearing...The Sound of Music...again.

Around the sleeping, C watching DVD, S practicing her writing, washing put away at last, dishwasher waiting for me, cats being weird??

One of my favourite things...putting my feet in the heater at night and reading the days paper brought home  from work by Mr Pixies.

A few plans for the rest of the week...Stay sane with Kinder holidays on...

A photo to share...Just what I have most recently photographed...for Mr Pixies, to go on ebay...not this particular shot, this one I took for me...weird I know

Daybook Monday

FOR TODAY...4th of July 2011

Outside My Window...Grey skies, then sunshine, then grey skies...this is Ballarat.

I am thinking...hello is there anybody out there??

I am thankful for...a sleeping baby.

From the kitchen...Homemade Pumpking Soup...pumkpin currently roasting in my now working oven ($300 later). I don't think a day has gone by since the oven was repaired that I haven't used it.

I am wearing...something comfortable.

I am creating...I have been drafting patterns and cutting out fabric...but it's so bloody freezing in my sewing room I wouldn't even dream of venturing out there at the moment.

I am stop wasting so much time on facebook this hour goes by in the blink of an eye...wish I'd never joined back up. Of course I could delete my account.

I am get some more photos up in frames and onto the wall. I have a ridiculous amount of frames in my buffet and almost bare walls. Just need to find the time to sort out what I want on the walls.

I am hearing...Miss C pretending to be an elephant...totally annoying, but cute at the same time, how it doesn't wake the baby up I don't know.

Around the house...clothes all washed, folded and put in there appropriate almost standard lamp in the lounge room...TV on ABC4kids (so what's new)...heater going...
curtains closed against the chill.

One of my favourite things...Listening to Miss 5 talk about something she is excited about...her facial expressions and her tone of voice almost remind me of what it is like to be young and remind me to find wonder in the small things.

A few plans for the rest of the week...No Kinder, make playdough and pikelets and do some paintings with the pixies. Try to wramgle some time for myself. Photograph some stuff to list on eBay. Meet my Mum for a coffee.

A photo to share...a little cliche, and he's a bit old now...but I still had the fluff from his newborn photo shoot and I never got any of the basket photos that I here we are...a "baby" in a basket.

Have a good week...if there's anybody out there actually reading :)
