Teeny Tour

I've been excited to share with you the finished product....My puppy-loving boy chose this quilt and the wall colors to match. I love the color choices and I think the room turned out pretty cute. What do you think?

This room, Nate's room, might just be my favorite bedroom of the house. I hope to rectify that once my bedroom is out of construction, but for now I just love these windows that look out at the sycamores, Woodpeckers and other flitting entertainment. I liked this room so much even the first time we looked at the house.

I started with the Green, and added the huge Brown stripe. Nate wanted just more stripe and I wanted the contrast of a darker brown. My girlfriend suggested I just add a darker stripe and I LOVE it.

Makes me think on Joe's room...maybe it needs another stripe? But for now, it'll wait. :)

Eli chose this duvet cover with a little prodding. In truth, he really wanted a dinosaur quilt. I hesitated because as much as he loves dinosaurs he gets bad dreams about them. I thought maybe we should do something more....restful for on the bed. So he chose the alligator (still a reptile) pulling the moone in a wagon. I love it. I picked up matching paper sconces (Ikea) and wall hooks and am planning to paint his room next. Yellowy orange or orangy-yellow. Boy yellow. Do they make that color?

But today all that paint will wait. I pitted my last of #35 of cherries yesterday. I made raspberry-cherry freezer jam and served it on toast this a.m. All the work was worthwhile when Eli said "This is the best jelly in the world, Mama!" He picked those very cherries. :) Summer fun!
Today we are taking the boys to the movie annual treat. They've been so looking forward to seeing Cars 2, so today we go. I'm also planning on poking around in the garden and finally planting some plants I keep watering to keep alive in plastic containers. I haven't put pumpkins in yet so I'm hoping they'll give us fruit in time. I'd better just do it today.
Sunday is our Sabbath, I try to rest as much as I can doing things that I enjoy and are restful. Cars 2, maybe I'll take a nap? Maybe I'll see if hubby wants to go without me?

What are you doing today? Do you take Sabbath? A day of rest?

Ah, ditto Cathy.

Yes, we keep some sort of Sabbath, although it seems like it's mostly a prioritizing of leisure time, which is about the best we can do with Mr. Kiddo and Joe's Routines (he loves his weekend routines), so we have good downtime on both Saturday and Sunday afternoons. Quasi-Sabbath, perhaps. Certainly not as restful as designating a whole day.... maybe someday. I'd like that.

I hope all is well. I am so sad, I can't see your photos.
