Wow! Snapfish is having a great promotional deal right now! If you order 50 4×6 pictures right now, they’ll be 1 cent each! You have to hurry because this great deal will be over on July 12th! I took advantage and am getting 50 prints of our trip to the beach this fourth of July!
I had a good 4th of July weekend. It was my first trip to the pacific coast and Melody’s first trip to the beach! The pacific coast is much different than the east coast. It’s much cooler, temperatures only in the 60’s and quite windy.. it’s great for kite flying if nothing else. I would’ve liked to stay longer but I was not exactly dressed for it and I didn’t want Melody to catch a chill or get an ear ache. It did rain a bit but we found refuge in cute little pirate themed pastry shop. We also took in the sites of a glass blowing place were you could create your own float or paper weight. Shrimp pizza was called for at lunch and after a bit of souvenir and outlet shopping, we headed home before the traffic got too crazy.
That’s my 4th of July in a nut shell!
It was a blessing to have my daughter to sleep all morning! Why do you ask? Well, I was contacted for a job yesterday evening and I was pondering whether to do it and whether or not I would be able to finish it by the deadline! I prayed about it and slept on it and I was able to. It made me happy to able to do some substantial work for someone and it was fun 🙂
I think the design came out just nicely as it’s for a Children’s Sunday School Class that’s learning about the fruit of the spirt.
So, I am not putting pressure on myself anymore to get art done… there’s enough for me to do around the house and to take care of my daughter. It’s been hard enough to get letters out to people, respond to e-mail and even for me to eat.
I think Melody and I will start going on walks everyday… the fresh air does me good… I have been getting so frazzled lately. Don’t get me wrong.. I love my baby to pieces and enjoy spending time with her… it’s just I guess everything is so new still.. and I am having to learn that I can’t juggle everything even if certain people think that I should. It’s okay for me to leave things… right now dishes from dinner are still on the table ( including my supper which i wasn’t able to finish) , the trash hasn’t been taken out and there’s two loads of laundry for me to fold. Such is life!
