rain and orange squirrels make me happy

holiday monday and the kids are busy painting each others faces. (it is a little too quiet but i am trying not to let it worry me!)

thank you so much for all your kind words and thoughts.

it is cooler and rainy and i am feeling a bit better. the rain does that to me! but to add to my blues our dear turtle giselle has gone missing. we are not sure how she managed to get out of her enclosure on saturday. we have posted signs around the neighborhood and the little bug keeps telling me that she is in the yard under the grass searching for her lunch. but my heart isn't feeling very optimistic.

for s

on a happier note a dear little friend and neighbor is turning 4. we fashioned together a drawstring backpack and crayon roll out of this squirrel-ly old ikea crib set, the big bug made her a paperbag sketchbook and we threw in some beads and string for a rainy-day kit. now the big bug insists we need to include an orange squirrel. "like stephanie makes". a pretty tough call i told her. but we will see what we can come up with...

Such a sweet gift! Sorry to hear about Giselle ... boy, if she had to wander off, her timing sure left something to be desired. Hang in there.
