{refeshing truth}

I came across this gem through Proud To Be Country and although I have no idea how to get the video to appear on here so you could just click the 'play' button...i think that if i just do this:

The Gift of an Ordinary Day by Katrina Kenison

...and ask you to click the link, it should bring you to the right place...?

go ahead, click it...and be refreshed!

I was!

::super speedy goodness::

wanna know how to make this?

come on over to simply homemade goodness and have a look!!

{feelin' groovy}

the other day i got together with a couple mums and their kids (10 in total!!) and we decided to have a tie-dyeing par-tay!!

it may have been in the sweltering heat of the noon-day sun...and it may have taken us over an hour to mix all the colours together with boiling water...but who's to say;P

unfortunately, i didn't snap any pictures of the event...and the tedious tying or dyeing...or any of the kidlets displaying generous amounts of patience toward their mumas...

but i JUST rinsed them out and dried them...the dye isn't as vibrant as I, personally, would like...but...

what do you think???

I think they and their new owners are pretty darn cute!!
nice work for a trial run, i'd say!!
here's hoping the 8 other shirts turn out just as surprising!!

{my baby...bean}

well...i have a moment, so i'll take what i get! (in all honesty, i AM procrastinating;P) my baby is growing like a weed, which isn't anything new.

but what IS new is that i am actually snapping some pictures of 'things' :)

recently, Avery's been excited about 'camping out' in her room - an idea that she fancied, but one her older sister was NOT fond, alone she slept!

{simple pleasures!}

{ooooh...and another simple pleasure...sleeping in Sissy's bed for nap-time, without her knowing!! Ssshhh!}


and i will leave you with 2 pictures of Avery's newest 'talent' - dressing herself!!
{from head...}

{to toes!!}

well, i guess i can avoid no longer!! duties call (read: i must go and clean/wrap/freeze 60 fresh sockeye least i now know what's for dinner!!)
