I am finally resurfacing to life

Arts festivals take the wind out of me. I leave myself so exhausted by the time the show starts, i muster up all the personality I have to enjoy all the people that come out to see me/us, and new people I get to meet. Then I enjoy the feeling of money in my pocket (since it is feast or famine being a stay at home mom/working artist who only gets to put herself and work first a few weeks out of the year) and then...... I 1. enjoy my kids and my family and 2. SLEEP and catch up on TV i have tivo'ed.

Over the last week I have gone to the pool, spent time with friends, gone out to dinner a few times, had a picnic in the backyard, watched my girls play in the sprinkler (and joined in), planted flowers with my girls, went to the farmers market, watched them ride their bikes with friends (and joined in), shopped, went to the library, went hiking, caught up on laundry, organized and made some lists. For relaxing - it was productive relaxing.

Here are some photos from the last week.

mia helping me with flowers

ryan warming up after swimming.

not the best bike safety photo - but she does where her helmet and clothes 95% of the time.

just what i needed for a drive to the mountians


mount evans - the tallest paved road in north america. and did i mention i am terrified of heights!
I had attempted to make it to the top ten years ago, and only attempted it again because i had forgotten just how scarey the drive is. there is NO room for error. that snow line is the road- with straight drops.

Sounds like a lovely week. There is NO WAY I could drive up that road! The view is amazing though.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I believe I've seen your work on Design for Mankind lately. I appreciate the compliments on my garden. And no, we're not done with the play structure...we just had to move it over because it killed the grass! Bummer!

I am on Verizon and would not like to switch carriers but would love an iPhone. Will this ever happen?

Hello Guru, what entice you to post an article. This article was extremely interesting, especially since I was searching for thoughts on this subject last Thursday.
