refreshed




A short vacation is always good for the mind and soul. Miss. A and I had a very nice visit with my sister and her two little ones. Her new little girl is very easy and it was a lot of fun to see the older kids play together. Miss. A and her cousin are only three months apart and so they were able to entertain themselves quite easily. It was sweet to see how much Miss. A enjoyed the little baby. She actually became quite obsessed with her and wanted to make sure she always had an idea of where the baby was at all times. I will make a note that being around a new little baby did not in any way give me the 'baby bug'.

We returned from our trip mid-afternoon friday only to repack and drop Miss. A off at the grandparents. Daniel and I took a nice weekend getaway. I had booked this weekend almost a month ago and at the time I was not aware that it was Valentines weekend. I guess one could say that it was a Valentine getaway but that was not the intention. In actuality we just needed a break. Daniel has been working quite hard all winter on many different contracts and we just needed a break. It was a lot of fun looking at antique shops, driving through the country side, and lingering with meals. We came back from the trip refreshed but a bit sluggish from the time away. I have found it a bit hard to get back into the swing of things. There are piles of laundry that need to be washed and bags waiting to be unpacked. I am sure that by the end of the week things will be under control. I was originally going to upload my Etsy shop on the 15th but I will be pushing the date back to the first of March in order to prevent stress in my life. Right now I am looking forward to finishing a few things for the shop at a slow and easy pace.

There's nothing lovelier than some "grown-up" time with your honey. As much as we love our little ones, isn't it nice once in a while? Glad to hear you're feeling refreshed!
