Single parentville…..

Living as a single parent for the time being until we move. Did I ever tell you how much I appreciate my husband? Ok, I may give him a hard time for watching Sunday football all day on Sunday….. or nag him about taking out the trash…….. or nag him about so many other things. When they are gone…… you sure do need them for so many things and realize how much they are needed to complete your little family unit! He is the sweetest guy, always positive, even when things are down. I miss my coffee maker this morning. Reality… I make a bad cup of coffee, and I really don’t want to head over to Starbucks in my PJ’s! Well, there you have it…. single parents out there, hats off to you! What else? Had to share a couple of pages in a Art book I made a while back…….Img_1628 Img_1632Img_1630 Img_1633 

Went roller skating on Monday…. it was free roller skating night. Do you remember doing this in the 70’s? Skating to Donna Summer….. Well, had a babysitter and went with a Teacher from our school. Made a apple pie from scratch, it was delicious! Made me start thinking of this section in Cosmo… you know the one that gives you suggestions on what to do that month? I think its called "why don’t you……" Well I am no Cosmo…. but I thought it would be fun to give a little list on suggestions  here they are:

This month why don’t you……….

* Bake a apple pie from scratch

* Go Roller Skating or Salsa dancing

* fill all your vases with fresh Fall Flowers

* Go to the hometown football game

* Teach your child how to wash the dishes (I bought 2 tubs, sponges (cut them in half), let her pick a scrubber, and her own dish soap) Montessori style you might say!

If you have any for me…. I would love to hear them!

here are a couple of Flea Market finds this week:Img_1617 Img_1626  vintage crepe napkins and a baby blanket quilt.

also a little update on Flea Market Studio Shop. That’s about all folks! Have a beautiful Fall Day!!! Img_1635_2

    Wow, cudos to Typepad for featuring your blog. I’ve been toying with the need to begin blogging and usually talk myself out of it. I fear that I will have nothing to say on a daily basis. But seeing your journals and clicking over to your store have inspired me to give it a go. I may not have a huge volume of craft creations to feature, but I have lots of drawings to pull from. Thanks for being inspiring, I’ll check back daily.

    Here is one for your list…
    Watch “Gone With The Wind”. I just introduced it to my 9 year old daughter and she loved, loved, loved it.

  15. Marilyn Says:

    Wowsers! Featured Typepad Blog!!! I always knew you rocked. And that little gal in the ruby slippers is too cute for words.
    Try bobbing for apples or sitting on a porch/patio in the cool/cold air eating warm cookies and drinking cold apple cider on a sunny fall afternoon.
    I’m missing you in advance… Marilyn

    I had the weekend mostly to myself. I did get alot done. A LOT of Laundry was washed ( I usually do this 2X a week, just for fun, hahha). I also have a big mirror pretty much finished (painting) and made some more christmas houses.
    For your list you could add: start packing for your move. However I feel you had some greeeat things on that list, like time with an adult. Love time with my kids, but we need time wiht adults a little. And fresh flowers always help to sell a house either on the real estate market or sell it to your family (“this is OUr home”) .
    Dish duty for your wonderful daughter~ “priceless” You BOTH will be reaping the rewards of this regular member of your to do list, oh, I mean her to do list!
    I started at age 5 and of course I am still doing them. This is nice time together for you two!!! : )
    ***!!!!!I hope that you have a wonderful week!!!!!***
    With Kindness, and a hug

    Okay, I just found your blog, and I am in love with it! You are so very creative and inspirational! I am a California girl who moved to southern Missouri a year ago, so I understand the trauma of moving! Keep thinking the happy thoughts about the good things to look forward to.
    Take care of yourself!
    God bless you during this time!
    Warm Pie, Happy Home
