Here and There

It’s been a mix of lazy and productivity around our house.  The television was stuck on either golf or soccer all weekend – Happy Father’s Day Matt! 😉 Alice and I celebrated Father’s day by gifting Dad with a funny card and a new wok (his request!).  He then cooked us dinner (stir fry).  I mean, what a guy, right?  He’s pretty fantastic, all of the ladies in this house would have to agree.

In other news, being 31 weeks along in my pregnancy I figure it’s high time I get serious about transitioning Alice into her new room.  Sunday afternoon I started emptying her new room of all the things that do not belong, which means all my crafty supplies are spilling over into other areas of our house.  Now where to put everything…?  I’m really trying to not get overwhelmed and forcing myself to concentrate on one task at a time.  One foot in front of the other, that’s how everyone gets things done, right?

On the agenda this week: ORGANIZE.  We have lots of areas of under utilized storage and some serious organization needs to take place in order to maximize our space.  (Of course my sister in law and her family have begun house shopping which make me want to house shop.  Of course, right?!  Focusing on being content with what I have – which should not be hard.)

And you?  What’s new with you?

    Lazy and productive weekends are the best! Looks like you got some great family time over the holiday weekend. I love the shape of your desk chair by the way! Did you recover it?

    Thank you! The chair actually came with our mid century dining set that we found on Craigslist a while back. The seller had 5 chairs (we so wish he’d had 6!) so I use the extra 5th as a desk chair. And yes I recovered it… Not sure if I’d do the same pattern for the other 4 around the dining table though.

    Lazy + productive + soccer = best weekends.
    Looks like you had a wonderful weekend with your family. I swear I am always reorganizing my craft and sewing supplies, and then I turn around and they are spilling everywhere again. How does that happen?! Good luck with yours! Excited to see how it turns out 🙂

      Thanks Dusty! I think that staying organized will probably be a constant task. Unfortunately it’s not just a one time fix is it?!
