I haven’t posted any of my cards for a while, so here’s one from our Valentine/Wedding/Love card swap last night. It was my second card attempt of the day, so I only had an hour to whip it up, but I think it turned out quite cute. I love it when I surprise myself and do something crafty on my own. It’s rare.
Now that I had to stop marathon training I’m starting to get into ‘crafty’ mode again and have been itching to sew, paint or build something. I saw this great book at the craft store and my mind has been swimming with baby ideas ever since. I forget how fun planning for baby can actually be! I’ll at least hold off for one more week so that I can find out if I’ll be making sweet little boy or girl baby things.
Besides the card swap I have done very little the rest of the week besides clean, (okay you got me) but I thought about cleaning! and I did start clearing out my weed infested yard. Oh, and I started to work out again (walking) which has been great! Hopefully I’ll even work up to running again soon if I can stay healthy for more than a week or two!
But this weekend I plan on being very busy and making up for all of my lost time being sick, and just being lazy. And I’m planning on getting dirty. Very dirty. I just had this delivered tonight.
I’m so excited to walk into my backyard and see more than a brown wasteland. Our yard is all prepped and ready for the sod, however, we now need to dig 8 tons of dirt out from around the swing set to accommodate the 8 tons of sand that is going to be delivered tomorrow morning. I have no idea how much sand that is, or how long it’s going to take us to get it from our driveway to the backyard, but I do know that these three kids can’t wait to start digging in it!
I have a feeling that tomorrow night I’m going to need a very long, very hot shower. If any of you are nearby and have nothing to do in the morning. . . you know where to find me! Hope you all have a lovely weekend and I’ll be back to post some yard pictures soon!
