Wow am I ever overdue for a blog!
Life has been insane. We have a new baby in the family. Athena is absolutely gorgeous! She was born on the twenty-third and was 7lbs 13oz, almost exactly twice her preemie Mommy was when she was born. A fact that prompted me to coo at the baby, “Look! Your teeny tiny Momma had a full size baby!” I would show you the precious girl but I don’t want to be posting pictures of her without the permission of her mother.
Although, I can show you this:
We took her baby stuff shopping. It was funny to watch her and her Dad. Of course, they think it was funny to watch me… but here’s why they were the funny ones:
My life has been full of little joys woven into the stress and busy-ness.
My daughter’s dance competition. It’s a buttload of stress for me because it’s a highly toxic day. People are toxic in general but stick me in a dressing room with 50 dancers and their mothers, a cloud of hairsprays and make up and I’m toasted. It is worth it to watch her dance. And this time she got the second highest score in her division as well as the highest score she’s ever gotten.
Untouched, that pic was taken with my phone.
She’ll kill me if she sees I put it up there. At least it’s not one with the mustache. *laughs*
Yesterday I was a bad girl – sort of. I went down the stairs to the beach. Really not feeling well enough for that but I needed it. Today I’m laid up but I did enjoy the walk and the pictures I took. I snapped things I found interesting, as usual. They’re not all that pretty, however. The storms and the thaw left some … things … on the beach. 😀
Thankfully, I did find some beach glass and this guy:
To cap it off, I was sitting on the bench at the bottom of the stairs, resting a bit before I started working my way up the stairs. (When I got to the top of the stairs, by the way, he was there with the car to drive me the last block home because he figured I’d be in pain. Ain’t he sweet?) I leaned my head back and saw a beautiful thing.
Yesterday was a beautiful day and we spent a lot of time on the porch. I was playing with my camera settings, the “magic” ones in particular. I took a picture of The Boyfriend with the “drawing” setting.
I have uploaded the photos for the website and I’m working on the text. It’s coming along! FIVE MORE LIKES on my Facebook page to get to the giveaway!
Ooops, four more, friend of mine just liked it because she loves Witch Hitlist. 😀
Have a great day my lovely people.
