Resting, resting

I woke up this morning eager to start on the tasks of the day. A few hours later, and I am done with the main task which has been hanging over my head for weeks, and I’ve run out of steam. Now I’m resting.

Last week was a busy one; lots of early mornings and fun days with grandboys including a few unscheduled sick days, and no matter how much I appreciate those days, I don’t do much else when they are here, including rest. We do however enjoy things like these
and of course painting.

I had a go at the painted frame from this post, but it turned out really bad so I was happy I could just wash the paint right off. I’m still thinking I want to add collage, so I hadn’t bothered prepping it for paint.

We drove up to the cabin on Saturday and spent almost a full 24 hours there. It was windy and wet, but still very enjoyable and very quiet and peaceful. I got to rearrange my craft drawer which I have been filling up with odds and ends and what seems like quite an extensive collection of different paints.

We also played around with taking pictures through the holes in one of the Hama bead creations. Cool, huh!

And of course rainy day soccer (10 minutes outdoors and the rest indoors) and board games. I think this would be our equivalent to Snakes and ladders.

Time to rest up before the next task on my list, have a wonderful Monday!
