I love that the alley behind my house around and the edges of my house are a good habitat for this little guy. I know they can be loud sometimes, but it reminds me of camping days by the river. Cannot wait till we are able to do that again.

Clean Up

Earlier this week, I took my daughter and my daycare kids on litter patrol. I work very hard to instill morals and values, and I want them to know that little acts of kindness make big impacts on showing you care.

Coffee Is Supposed To Get Me Started…

I had grand plans for the day. Most of it was being outside walking down some new trails I was told about. Instead I sit out on my front porch, with my coffee, watching the rain. I love the sound of rain, but with all the quarantining going on I need my outside time. My heart is sad because it’s washing away all the wonderful chalk encouragements my kids and I worked on this week.

So I guess I will have to start a list of which ones to put up next. but I know my daughter is going to be sad as well. At some point I need to do some continuing education courses to get my yearly hours in. I need to go to the store to get some basics. I do know that my husband gave me a weighted blanket this week and I’ve been wanting one forever. And I love it! My goal is to get one for my ADHD son. He has a hard time at night, so I’m hoping this will help him.

Outside of that, nothing exciting now. I will say that a friend of mine was getting rid of a door. Just a door. And I’m taking it to paint. If you remember I completed a very large mirror painting in acrylic. So I’m pretty excited to have a door. Do I have any clue what I’m going to do with it? Absolutely not. i’m hoping it’s the same size as our current pantry door and we can switch them out. My family thinks I’m crazy, but I don’t think there’s anything wrong with adding a little extra pop into your interior. Especially when you suddenly are spending so much more time there.

Praying for everyone to stay safe, healthy, and have a fabulous weekend!

Empty desolation
Emotional eyes
Cast upon the minimal canvas
Of powerful nothingness
