Middle of the Week

This week I am...

...understanding why we've hidden away our family pictures and little charms, like the snowflakes Billy loves so much, to stage our house.

...missing them anyways. It just doesn't feel like a home without all the lovingly arranged clutter!

...mulling over how to create messy art experiences for Billy (here) that don't overtake our staged home.

...thinking about creating a series for our experiments. Surely I'm not the only one trying to simultaneously raise creative kids and keep a tidy home at the same time?

...reading, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" for the first time, and enjoying it.

...amazed at the world that Jules Verne was able to envision, and how right he was in his predictions!

...wishing Isia was old enough to read it- and discuss it- with.

...reading her  "The Little House in the Big Woods" instead. She simmers down and follows along well, even if she still doesn't understand why Laura calls her parents "Ma" and "Pa." (smile)

...enjoying the snow- although our quick glimpses of Spring haven't hurt!

...wondering if Spring really might be around the corner?

Wishing you warm blankets and good books as you end your week!

  1. Ugh...I hate having a staged house. That might be why we haven't moved in the the last twelve years ;) Enjoy Jules...he's quite the story teller. Actually, I think he must have been absolutely brilliant. Stay warm!

    1. Melissa, I Love that you're on a first name basis with him! I'm definitely enjoying his brilliance and dry sense of humor- a perfect distraction from staged houses. Speaking of which- I think it would be a perfectly valid reason for never moving again! (smile) ~Cassidy

  2. I feel for you. All of our hand-crafted things and art projects are being boxed as we get ready to stage ours, and it feels so empty!

    1. Erin, It does make it so empty- I'm not a fan. And I want my pictures back! Oh well, as least we can support each other through the process? ~Cassidy


Would love to hear from you!
