I've been waiting for my favorite season and it has finally arrived with its sunny skies, beautiful weather and kids who want to 'do something fun'. I've got a lot of work to do, but how can you deny them the summertime fun that they deserve after a long year of school? You can't. You just can't.
So, I am getting up at the crack of dawn every morning so I can work until they wake up (while secretly hoping they stayed up really late so they'll sleep in). I'm usually able to work a good 5 hours until we're off to the lake, the pool or wherever their little hearts desire.
I did manage to sort through some jewelry to decide what I want to keep and what I want to clearance and rearranged my studio a bit before we left.
Honestly, after seeing this picture I'm not crazy about the layout so I'll play around with it a little tonight with a well deserved glass of wine.
This is me with my 'shuttle the kids to the lake' look. My son did tell me that I get the "Mother of the Day Award." Gotta love that, right?
He caught a small blue gill on his first cast which he threw back.
I packed my laptop, some beading supplies to finish a necklace I've been working on and some very important notes so I could get some work done on a course that I'm taking. I was so excited that I could use this time to get caught up.
But...as soon as we got to the lake I discovered that I left the bag on the floor by the door. So, needless to say, I didn't get any work done. There wasn't any cell service, so I took in the beauty of my surroundings and did something that I rarely do which was...RELAX.
We went to Taco Bell afterwards and on the way home I was asked if I would take them to the clubhouse to play pool and to swim.
So, here we are...this time I remembered my bag of goodies and laptop. I love hearing the kids scream with delight, the sound of the water from the sprayers and have to chuckle when I hear the parents telling their kids to get out of the pool about 6 times before they threaten them. I so remember those days. Well, an hour turned in to almost 3 and the pool will be closing soon. The good news is I did manager to get a blog post in. Hurray!
I wonder what he has in store for tomorrow?
For me, it's an early morning cup of coffee and more of what I love to do--which is designing and making jewelry.
Is it 6am yet?
