Take time to enjoy your day, and the limited days of summer that I fear we have left! The last couple of days have been beautiful, but with just a touch of coolness in the air that feels suspiciously like fall to me! NO! I’m soooo not ready.
In fact I’m dreading cool weather and back to school and the particular routine that comes with it! I know a lot of parents look forward to the back to school season…for reasons I can relate to…BUT I am not. I’m just not looking forward to the homework (yes at this age and grade I am really the one sitting down to ‘do’ homework) and getting my 7 year old son to get through it, is no easy task. At least, it wasn’t last year. Maybe this year will be different. I don’t remember not wanting to go to school in the early grades. Not the case here. My son already, going into grade two, does not really want to go. I’m hoping he’ll change his mind! Wishful thinking? 🙂
Today was a lovely summer day and it started in a very nice way too! My two boys decided to bring me breakfast in bed, (some toast with no butter and some honey drizzled in the middle) 🙂 along with some lovely pictures they had drawn together. A great way to start the day!
This morning I was able to finish the card I started late last night for the sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers. I love making 4.25″ cards like this one, and I thought the sketch today was perfect for this sweet new Penny Black stamp I bought last week. I colored the hedgie with watercolor crayons and a blender brush, highlighting a little with fine point markers.
Enjoy your day!
