Narrating Life

Here is what is happening in our life right now...


...this little girl is in her room NOT taking a nap. I know because I can hear her playing. But now that she is in a "big girl bed" (which yes, is just her crib mattress on the floor, don't judge) I try to let her just have "quiet time." She will be asleep 1/2 an hour before it is time to wake her up.

...I am in the middle of making a cake. It's actually turning out to be kind of an epic cake. I'm okay with that because it is the cake intended to christen the kitchen. I'll tell you all about it once it's done. I've burned the caramel sauce that goes on it twice. TWICE.

...these curtains arrived in the mail today. I love them.

...my in-laws are coming in two days! We're excited to see them and I'm happy for the motivation to get the house a little bit more in shape.

...I've been thinking about our little family of three a lot lately. I think we're going to have a good year.

...I'm feeling the need to do a bit more Living Life rather than Narrating Life so my posting here will be slim at best for a couple of weeks. I hope you understand. I'll still pop in on Fridays to share the menu!

...Tomorrow is the 12th. Are you going to play along this year? Pretty please?

I drove past the little town of Shelley today and thought to myself, "I must tell Miranda about one of my favorite antique stores!" And so I am telling you about HIDDEN TREASURES in Shelley Idaho. Actually, it is 2 stores. The real antique store is on the highway through town. The other (really huge) store is a bit more hidden. This store buys entire estates. You need a couple of hours to really appreciate the entire store. Both are a mental health trip for me. They have wonderful "stuff" and even wonderful knockoffs. Check them out sometime. Dugan even loves their stuff. Love, Judy J

My son is currently sleeping on a crib mattress on the floor as well. I think it is a great idea.

She got her pillow pet!

Such a little cutie curled up like that, with her longed for Christmas pressie too!

Will love catching up with you Miranda when you have a quiet moment but living life is so very important - enjoy.


PS: 12 on the 12th was another day doing nothing - I really must book in the most exciting day soon!
