It was a peaceful weekend, quiet and low key. We milled about doing this and that. No trips, no rushing around. Delightful!
On Saturday I gave a couple of haircuts on the front porch. For some reason, even though I cut the boys’ hair myself and own all of the cutting tools, I wait until they look like orphans in a third world country before I actually cut their hair. I will go weeks saying, “Boy, you need a HAIRCUT!” knowing that all I have to do is pull out the clippers and have it done in about 10 minutes. Pitiful.
After the haircuts were done Patience and I decided to use the nice light on the porch to take some new photos for our shop. My Mason Jar Straw Lids are our hottest seller these days, so we wanted to spice up their pictures. We set one of our tables on the porch with our pretty summer dishes and took about 7000 shots. This is Patience’s influence. I am a just-take-a-couple-of-pictures-and-be-done kind of girl, but she likes to keep going with gusto. My problem with taking so many is that I have to reject a bunch of good ones.
Just to show you, here’s one of the rejects….but I love it!
And the good ones…they are super yummy! I love this one with our new stainless steel straws.
Seriously, I could show you 6998 more! And we have several new listings in the shop and more to come. EEK!
Since the table was all set anyway, the 4 girls decided to eat dinner out there and had a lovely time. Although I couldn’t tell you why they aren’t actually drinking from the mason jars with lids. I wonder if they know they are allowed to actually USE them.
Yesterday was James’ birthday. The kids and I pampered him as much as we could. We did whatever he wanted, which meant spending the afternoon playing Wii Family Feud. It was girls against boys. The girls won. I’m just sayin’. Birthday or no birthday….no one lets anyone else win around here.
I had to look through my Instagram feed to remind myself of what happened over the weekend. It’s sad when I can’t remember what I did yesterday. Especially when I saw this picture from church of 2 of my kids singing for the Lord. Really Mom, this is something you should remember.
Sorry for the grainy picture. I was using my iphone and I was way in the back. Note to self: sit in the front the next time my kids sing.
I guess that’s not a completely uneventful weekend. A few interesting things happened.
How about you? Did you relax? Or go gusto?
