busy bee

the cuties might not have been too busy today but their mama sure was! 

we started the day with breakfast (of course!). Since we'd been inside practically all day yesterday, i wanted the kiddos to be outside as much as possible. So Cutie Face ate on our side porch. She asked for a Fig Newton and I thought, ehh, why not--decent on the nutrition factor and super easy for me :-o

Unfortunately for her, a lawnman was using a leafblower across the street. This noise literally brought tears to her poor eyes. She was sooooo scared of it but I told her that he was cleaning (she loves being clean so this thought was a comfort to her) and then i told her it was like mommy's vacuum. These thoughts brought some solace but not much-she was soon begging to go back inside. 

I couldn't resist snapping some photos, though, because the light was nice and i'd slacked severely in the picture taking department these last couple of days.

Thanks to my mother-in-law, I was able to take a 2-week sewing class. The last class ended today and it was great. I wound up being the only student enrolled in the "beginning sewing" lesson so i technically had a 1-on-1 sewing instructional. It was so fun and informative!

Because it was from 9:30-1, I left the cuties with a sweet babysitter (though they both gave her a rough time by crying her ear off...we need to work on the truth that i'll always return...no need to cry!)

then it was home and lunch and bed and nursing and finishing the sewing project (a fun skirt---if i had elastic it'd be done by now! here is its semi-finished state...appearing more vibrant in this pic than in real life).

and then it was clean clean--my first woman's Bible study was tonight! oh my! {it was wonderful, by the way--so thank you all for your prayers in preparation of it.}

I, unfortunately, burnt the brownie cupcakes i made for the ladies so it was off to our local health food store for some last minute goodies.

While Cutie Face ate dinner & Cutie Cakes entertained herself in the bouncer (thank goodness for that bouncer!),
it was time for bedtime prep for the girlies--bath, bottle, bed for CC and potty, book, bed for CF.

15 minutes later the Bible study gals were at my door...too bad CF decided she needed to go potty yet again (she has impeccable timing, that one)

While that doesn't seem like a lot, being away from the homestead and the cuties for 3.5 hours definitely made the day fly.

Thanks for bearing with me on these boring catchup posts. When i write daily, my posts tend to be more fun and less...boring/diary-esque.

Let's bring the fun{k} back! here's to writing every day!

eeeeek! for some reason my computer just shut down and i lost half this post. Sorry for the disjointedness (yet again)...off to go backup my computer should it completely go on the fritz!
