whisper

I meet the dawn with a new perspective this morning. I walked around my garden in my slippers and bathrobe inspecting and diagnosing. A little snail bait needed here. Some anti fungal needed there. The sun peaked over the ridge and warmed my face. The whole world seemed to whisper~ slow down now girl. Take a breath. Focus.

I went back inside and cleaned up my stamp carvings. I put away my inks.

I think today I will pack our bags. I will make sure Thom has plenty of clean underwear and pajamas to take. Finnigan is going to the groomers. I will make a run to Trader Joe's to pick up some items my little sister requested. Today is all about taking care of business. No more time for craziness.

However, if at the end of the day, I find an hour or two to create, I think I will finish this pair of earrings. You know, just a little something to bide the time. We leave tomorrow.

Oh my gosh...those earings are so cute! I happen to be wearing those same colors. ;)

Good luck with the new baby. And remember pregnant moms are already tired from the last few months of pregnancy. But not you...so when you feel like a train has ran you over just remember your body wasn't preparing you. But you'll survive cause moms always do. :)

Lots of Love!
