This weekend (well, all week really) has a lot of shifting stuff involved with it. We have been the recipients of several awesome gifts from our very talented, artistic grandparents. Amongst these:
and the whimsical:
and the expressive:
Let’s just say that my children will not be lacking in art paper for quite some time since we also inherited a treasure trove of all kinds of art paper. (In a future post I will let you all in on how we are using a bunch of this paper during our “Morning Basket” time.)
I have also been busy in the kitchen with the last of the produce from our grape vines. I now have 12 jars of jelly that are sparkling on provisions shelf just beckoning with promises of grape, blueberry, and pomegranate flavors. Yum, yum!
After all this creativity, it helps to have a little extra storage space. So I am doing one more big purge of extra clothing before the seasons change again. Can you believe I have so many extra clothes! I am going to sell the great stuff if I can and re-home whatever else I can. I hope to make a bit more room in my own closet too. Perhaps if I can finish this project, I can move on to the next items on my list. If all goes well, I will have this done by the end of next week.
Ambitious? Very! But if I can get this stuff done before fall I will be thrilled and the holiday season will be a bit easier. 🙂
Besides, fall feels a little closer since the summer is officially over. How do I justify making this statement? Because we were here last night:
I always think of the State Fair as the true end of summer. So, off we go into the post summer/pre fall season!
What plans do you all have? Or how are you holding on to your summer fun? Please share with me anything you are up too – I love to hear it!
Peace and health,
