i had plans for a couple blog posts to close out this week.
yeah. not happening.
what is happening is a lot of this:
100% cranberry juice.
and not because it's my favorite juice, which it might be.
i'm drinking it like it's my job. for medicinal purposes. annoying.
annoying for anyone at any time, but especially when you've got a toddler on the loose.
also, i think medicinal is a funny word to say.
i change my kitchen towels once a day, at least. this one is my favorite right now.
i love the colors, such a cheerful palette for a dreary day. of cranberry juice drinking.
and the motif is super cute, right?
another funny word to say.
remember those horrible "fill in the circle" tests?
what are those called? i bet it's a funny word.
well, i've been doing a few of them for some things we've got going on.
good. grief. why i ever thought they were a treat to fill out, i will never know.
the best part is, i spent entirely too long searching my home for a pencil. my preference is pen.
always has been. in recent years, these are my very favorites. i have many colors.
each used for different things in my planner and on the calendar. i'm
ridiculous organized like that.
oh yes. the pencils. actually one. i found one pencil.
and i may have used a makeup sharpener to make it useful.
speaking of useful, i miss encyclopedias.
remember when they were a thing?
i'm in a funny spot. very much immersed in the age of the world wide web and
the instantaneous search results. but i also spent a lot of time pouring over actual books for information.
i still do. it's just something i will never tire of. flipping through pages, browsing through the library. love it.
i have a set of old chilcraft children's books. the "make and do library".
as a little girl, these were what i spent hours "researching".
science projects, animal facts , craft ideas, fairy tales and stories about children around the globe.
i learned so much from this collection.
i read through several of the books on a regular basis with elijah.
(even if he's just running around, i read anyway. it's good for me and him!)
even a quick glance at a single page rushes my childhood to the front of my mind.
don't you love when something transports you like that?
my sweet child is already asleep. praise jesus.
my husband will be home from work any second and we will have a date night in. holla.
so. tell me. what's your weekend looking like?
and feel free to lend advice on the juice situation :)
