Another rainy day here. This time of year when it rains it's cold old and my entire body aches-yuck! Gray rainy days also make me very lazy. Maybe I am solar powered! I have plenty to do but nothing I feel like doing. I have been working in my journal and I did put the mint green paper lace in the shop.

I'm also feeling a bit anxious becasue the divine Miss H is leaving Sunday for Washington,DC with a school group. This is the first time she will have gone away without a relative and it makes me so nervous.I know she will be safe and well supervised. I think it is harder because she is my only child and this is just another sign of how grown up she is getting.If I chewed my fingernails I would have none left. If you have children how did you deal with them growing up and becoming more independent?

Here is some "real life" in the form of how my desk looks today :)
Have a great weekend and I hope the sun is shining wherever you are!And if you haven't entered my giveaway, go now!!!


  1. I take deep breaths, and try to tell myself, "I did this when I was their age. They will be as careful as I was". Repeat. Repeat again. (!) I like your journal! ~Kathy

  2. Kathy,
    I know I have taught her well and pray she remembers everything she's learned. I will try the deep breathes and telling myself it will be fine. Also, thanks for the compliment, reading and commenting!

  3. Breathe, Mama, breathe...she's a smart cookie and she's been raised well. :)

  4. I ain'ta gonna lie. Sometimes I sat and cried. I always took a nap when Jeane was on the road alone and woke when she called to say she made it.

  5. Oh I SO have you beat with the messy workspace!
    hehe I am LOVING the pages you've got going on there!
    Much Love
