Walks, Crafting, and Visits

A couple of weeks ago I told you about how Tiffany and I had been going for walks down our big hill. Shiloh really loves it when we go walking. :)

Dog Running ~ Lifeofjoy.meOne day of the first days the chickens followed us a bit.

Chicken Out for a Stroll ~ Lifeofjoy.meAnd the the butterflies were surrounding us. It was amazing because they even landed on us, this day.

I finally got serious about cleaning out my side of the closet a little while back. There is no before picture for several reasons: didn’t even think about it and too embarrassed to show it if I had remembered. :p But it looks pretty good now.

Recently I finally scraped all the dust off my dresser and put away about a year’s worth of jewelry.

Clean Dresser ~ Lifeofjoy.meYou can also see part of a VERY OLD vision board that has been hanging above my dresser for well over a decade! I’m about to make a new one though. :p

This week I finally got around to finishing the pumpkin dishcloth I was knitting.

Knitted Pumpkin Dishcloth ~ Lifeofjoy.meI love it. At least I finished it before the season was over. You can find the free pattern to knit over on this webpage. I like knitted dishcloths. :) Now if I can only figure out how to get all my towels clean, clean smelling, and still be absorbent.

I went into Michael’s this week to pick up some yarn for a project I’m going to make for my grandson for Christmas. While I was there I saw FOUR bins . . . FOUR BINS . . . of different washi tape for 33¢ each . . . yes! 33¢ each!!!!! I was in washi tape heaven . . . so many to choose from. Of course they are merely hypothetical stocking stuffers at this point and I am so eager to show them to you, but alas, it will have to wait. :o

Michael played a little with some pouring painting techniques this week.

Pouring ~ Lifeofjoy.meWe found that what he thought was silicone had zero silicone in it and thus did not produce the desired “cells”/outcome. But we will not be deterred . . . we will press on and try again later.

Michael had a birthday this week and my niece has hers next week, so Brian, Lauren, and Liam are coming up!!! This cutie will be here and I will have pictures to share next week!!!

grandson ~ Lifeofjoy.meThankfully Brian and Lauren have been sending me some pictures. In the latest ones he’s really matured a lot from just a few months ago. Time sure does fly! He’s getting sooo big! He’s really loving being in daycare; he’s thriving with other kids and all the activities. I am soooo eager to see them this weekend. :(

Well, that about wraps it up for me this week. I hope you have a great weekend; I know we will. Haven’t seen my parents or sister and her family in a while, and it is just time. :)

Until next time, God bless,

Michele ºÜº
