Working from Home…

DSC02216BLOG

So this picture doesn’t even do justice to the big lumpy lacy clumps of snow that are falling outside the window as I work at my makeshift daytime office on the dining room table. It feels like life is starting to fall into place a little again, the first trimester is done, I have a reasonably good balance between freelance design, my own design projects, schoolwork and crafting. Still I live for these moments when Aidan is sleeping, the house is clean so I can work, and my feet are warm .  I do have a home office I share with the DH unfortunatly my desk happens to be where I store all my stuff for my projects so I can quick run and get what I need during the day while watching Aidan. The dining room table makes a much better workspace, room to spread out, convience to check my emails with out closing a child gate after me, and lots of excuses to take story breaks.

Childhood Toy that I coveted…

My cousins had the best barbie house ever. It had everything from carpet, curtains in every window, to a kitchen sink, more impressive they made most of it. My cousin Ruth was closest in age to me so we always played with her Barbies. But her sister Liz had the Barbie that I coveted, Sweet Roses P.J.

She even smelt beautiful, and I blame that doll for my obsession with peonies. Because even though they said she smelt like roses, she really smelt like peonies on the last days of spring, and her dress looks just like it. I have put a personal plea with kingdom up above to have a dress like this waiting for me when I get there. I know that’s a morbid thought, but its the truth.

Of Quick Breads and Cobblers…

Is it possible to live on banana bread, pumpkin bread and my great grandma’s cobbler recipe? Must be because I am. The smell of cooking meat turns my stomach. Eggs frying in the morning, I have to open every window. You guessed it, we are pregnant. The little one will be making it’s appearance hopefully no later than the last week of April. As for now, bear the posts with no pictures, the ramblings and so on. We are doing our best in this house. Last time I got away with making popcorn for suppers during this period. No longer and option, sigh. But the plus side is, my day does have built in nap time which I never got before. So wish us luck!
