Daily Life


Just dropping in to say I am indeed back from my sister’s house, but the day I returned Chris came down with the stomach flu!  So I’ve been pretty busy taking care of things while he’s under the weather – so far I don’t feel sick at all myself, thank goodness!  I’m at our store right now adding a bunch of product to our database and watching the counter, so I’ve blogged a bit at our store blog.  Hopefully after this weekend I can get back into the swing of things.  In the meantime, I’ve been browsing a few of my favorite blogs – Holly has reminded me that fall is about here, Alicia Paulson has been sharing some of her summer fun (including the Oregon State Fair), and Molly Chicken has shared another free tutorial that makes me want to cozy up and stitch away!


Halloween has arrived here at the store.  It is funny to watch people’s reaction as they walk through the door – many come in frowning, with a pouting comment "fall already?!"  It seems nobody is ready for the summer to end, but then are we ever?  This summer sort of flashed right by me, waving "so long" as it went by.  Having a baby will do that, I think.  Benjamin is still a delight – it is fun to watch him consciously trying to reach for object so then he can put them to his mouth.  This morning I brought a new toy toward him, rattling it a bit from side to side, and his eyes were so fixed on it he jiggled his head side to side as he was watching it.  It was really funny.


This is Ben at 3 months with our friend Bobby Michaels.  He’s been spending a lot of time with his grandparents while Chris is sick, so I have missed him terribly.  But hopefully Chris will be feeling well soon, and sometime after this weekend I can get back into the swing of things!  Hope you all are enjoying the end of your summer…
