Warning: This post has no theme and is basically just a bunch of non sequiturs about the random bits of life here lately. It does not thoughtfully discuss important issues or concerns and in fact, contains no life changing information at any point. But then, that shouldn’t be a surprise, because this isn’t that kind of blog. Happy Tuesday!!
My sister and nephew came to visit me last weekend. I forgot how adorable and busy toddlers can be. And I miss my sister.
I finished my first shawl. Except for blocking. I still have two projects to finish to make my August knitting goals.
School supply and clothes shopping? Done and done. It feels so good. (Also: I love school uniforms. Sooooo many cute clothes out there, I know I’d blow our budget if I wasn’t looking at just khakis and polos.)
We bought a piano. My mom’s friend posted it on Facebook and a whole lot of craziness ensued, but it’s here and it’s tuned (it took two times to get it in pitch) and it’s beautiful and I love it. Now I just need to buy myself some sheet music and set up lessons for the kids. It feels wonderful to have a musical instrument in the house again.
I only have one interior wall on the whole main floor that will fit a piano. One. I think that is what they call an open floor plan.
Today I had to bite the bullet and rearrange my dining room around the piano. I don’t know if it’s going to work. I do know that I’d rather have a piano than a dining room table I use 10 times a year so we’ll see.
I haven’t been using my camera or updating my “family yearbook” as much as a should.
I think I need some house plants. I’m a bit of a black thumb but my house gets beautiful light. Any suggestions for easy plants to get me started? Where do you even FIND indoor plants??
The other day I decided I should purge something but I really wasn’t in the mood for the work (and it was HOT). So I deleted all my pinterest boards and started over. It was very cathartic actually. I’ve since created five boards, four of which have to do with crafting, and two of those which have to do with knitting. I know my passions.
And that is the hodge-podge of things going on in my life at the moment.
