weekly update

so that blog malaise is lingering...

truth is, my mind has been overly occupied with not so creative, more contemplative thoughts that don't lend themselves to blogging, ya know?

so...i thought i'd let you in on the mundane in my life:
1. we did switch totally to gdiapers and i love it. feel good about flushing it away and not piling it up in the landfill...sigh of relief!
2. we got some klean kanteens and a sigg for chris (inspired by rachel and others out there in blogland) i plan on making some kanteen kozies to spruce up the look (stella wishes for a sigg now because they are so cute!)
3. just finished watching season one of curb your enthusiasm. pretty funny. not stellar though.
4. also just watched grizzly man. bizarre and disturbing.
5. happy to find routine these days. i need it to keep my mind from spinning.
6. i'll be posting some photos soon of the apron and tea for 2 set i made for the women's auction at my family's church...happy to say it brought in some good cash thanks to a devoted fan!
7. has anyone ever done sitemeter or the like? you can see who visits your site when and from where and how they found you. interesting at first, freaky after you think about it for too long...but interesting nonetheless.

and here's an idea...maybe y'all should leave a comment saying hi so i can "meet" the people visiting my little blog...that would be fun, wouldn't it??? and i don't think i'm being sarcastic...really...

okie doke. hopefully fall will arrive here soon with crisp cool air and refresh my brain and spirits...needing some rejuvenation these days...so send some light my way, think happy thoughts, pray for some inspiration...

so dramatic, aren't i!!???

thanks for keeping me going girls...i'm still loving the updates on your blogs!!! makes me happy!

HI! yay! i miss you! i was just about to write you a "what's up?" but i see you beat me to the punch. how funny that we both wrote today. i like the siggs too. i was gonna get one online, but when i saw the kanteen in the store, i just got that instead.

drop me a line, or call me for a chat; it's been too long...

you're back! so when you look at your site meter thingy how many visits do you get from Seattle a day? i know i check your site pretty often.
bought the siggs for the kidds for the school year...here's hoping they don't get lost anytime soon.

melis, just invested in a klean kanteen today and a kid's sigg for ella.

...all the little steps to make us a healthier family, right?

p.s. did you ever blog about your cozies for them? love to see your ideas, although I got a really cool army green color and ella got this really sweet zoo animal/numbers one...
