You may have wondered what happened to me. You may have wondered why I haven't posted here.
You may not even be here any more.
Are you here?
Well. It's been... something else around here.
I haven't been able to write here because I haven't been able to come up with a humorous spin on the non-stop ordeal of sleep-deprivation and sickness that I have encountered. I was actually afraid of what vitriol I might spew about the injustice of it all if I started a post.
So much for my "vacation".
As I write this, I still have two children with fevers. And I'm still coughing up a lung or two. We're ALL coughing up lungs around here.
Lest I continue to bore you with tales of our woes, I'll stop. Suffice it to say that I've been feeling a little unbalanced.
We came up with a plan to help us feel a little more chill.
Just me and Mom and a snotty (but fairly cheerful) baby.
Flowers and green and beauty in the winter?
The problem with this is that it makes me want things. (Like, um, spring.)
Ginormous clay pots with water flowing out of them into crisp little blue pools?
A cute, smiley baby with a snot-crusted face?
Want! (Um, hold the snot crust!)
Wait, I have that!
It also made me want to make things. I came away with a few dreams and ideas. We'll see if I can put a few of them into practice this winter and spring.
Like these adorable miniature gardens.
They're just so tiny!
I've always admired these miniatures and I would love to try my hand at making them!
Also, some day I want to learn to weld and work with metal so I can make awesome little sculptures like this:
I've always loved metal art. Ahhh... someday...
So we got a got our spring fever ramped up a few notches, and got a little break from being house-bound. We also managed a little "retail therapy" but that was severely frustrated by the traffic. Oh, city life is not the life for me.
It has it's perks sometimes, though... like little doses of spring in winter...
