A Return to Routine

My house guests have gone home. It was a very nice weekend with them, despite being sick and having lousy weather. We enjoyed good food, good games, good talks and the first local farmer's market of the year. Yesterday our house returned to normal, although I'm still sick and as a result, not a lot of fun. I'm starting to feel a little better today - my first day in many not on any drugs. :) However, now I think Emily might be catching my bug. She's had a bit of a rough day today - nothing terrible, but just a little whiny and she looks very tired.

Our rain has FINALLY gone - after 3.5 inches this weekend and a couple of gloomy days - there was actual sunshine this morning. Emily and I went out and planted a bunch more flowers in the garden this morning. My fenced-in garden area (fenced to keep out the deer) is becoming more for flowers, and less for veggies this year. I'm okay with that.

After coming inside, I oiled up Emily's scalp to try and get rid of what looks like cradle cap, a problem she seems prone to. A nice long bath and two shampoos later, and her hair still looks like Lionel Ritchie's in the 80's. I think another shampoo or two might be in order later today.

Now that my weekend company is gone, I have once again turned my guest room back into my scrapbooking oasis. I'm thinking that in a few weeks I'm going to move Emily into our guest room (which is much bigger than her current room and can accommodate all her toys that seem to be ruling our living room). That means that her current room will be vacant and I intend to turn it into my scrapbooking space. I have great plans in my head, but am unsure what will actually occur. I'll keep you posted on that front.

After bringing all my beloved scrapping supplies out of the closet again, I did complete one layout. It's a picture of my daughter trying to nurse her baby after seeing her aunt nursing. Except Emily really had no idea of what she was doing - just that she needed to cover the baby close to her so that she could eat. I'm quite pleased with it - I even paper pieced the monkeys together. Take a look...

That's all for now. I'm hoping to be fully recovered by my next posting.

Until next time...
