4th of July Blah

Happy Independence Day! Mine has been rather blah. While I was growing up we always went to the lake on the 4th. Not being at a lake on the 4th is a big downer. I should have made better plans. Steven and Melody are coming over tomorrow, so that'll be a nice break in the cleaning routine.

Hubby and I have spent the last couple of days cleaning. There's still a lot to do, but I'm pleased with what we have accomplished. Here's Marjorie's ex-bedroom. It had turned into quite the depository of junk and extra stuff. Getting it back to this was a big job. Now all we need to do is fix the bed frame so the bed can be at a normal height.

I allowed myself a few times of distraction. I made this toy today.

I made these chocolate chip cookies today (a new recipe that I don't recommend... why mess with perfection?).

We had a sudden and heavy downpour. Afterwards the sun came out again.

Today I'm thankful for:
1) my mom calling me "honey" yesterday on the phone
2) a lovely downpour without hail or lightning (and being inside, dry)
3) naps
4) good results from hard work
5) yummy salad that Charles made

your toys are so inspiring....I need to make more, but I'm not as creative as you in that department.

What did you use for your toys hair? He's cute. It does feel good to get a big job done. I have to tackle the basement, the sewing room, the bedroom, the closet...
