Start of a new week

It's Monday morning. I'm starting my second week of being home. So much to do; so little time, really. As always, I'm amazed at how quickly a week passes. This is also my last week of having the house to myself. The solitude stops when Max and Kendall finish school for the year. Today, I find myself thinking about how I can really manage my time during the day. In the course of a regular day, I need to:

Job search
Keep the house picked up
Create art
Find time for meditation/quiet

And along with all of those things, I want to get a website started (or at the very least, get my Etsy store up and running again). Designing a website is something that I've been dragging my feet on since I have no idea where to start with it. But this is also a time for new explorations. I just need to take a few deep breaths and know that Rome was not built in a day.

We had a fabulous, relaxing weekend filled with biking, a football game and kayaking. I was sad to see it come to an end. Here are some photos:

Yesterday at the lake. Even Kendall got out and paddled ;)

Kendall's newly improved room, which my mother and I did on Friday. Needless to say, by the time Kendall came home on Sunday, she was a happy girl.


  1. Of course she loves the room! It's terrific. Was that wonderfully shabby chic dresser like that or did you give it the look??

    I was busy again this weekend but with fun things. Especially yesterday, me and hubs went for a ride on his motorcycle. It's both nerve wracking and exhilarating at the same time. A bit out of my comfort zone.... but it's the being with him part that makes it so worth it.

    Have a great week. :)
