Sometimes it’s the little things that make my heart giddy.This fella of mine has decided to make healthy life choices. He came home from school yesterday asking if he could go to the grocery store to buy food for his lunch. He walked in an hour later with his arms loaded with bags full of chicken, flank steak, vegetables, sauces and storage containers. He was so excited about slicing, cooking, and packaging his lunches for the week. In the end end, he had prepared five lunches of chicken or steak, rice, sautéed veggies and a salad. He kept repeating “I’m tired of the excuses. I just have to do it.” Wow. I’ve got a lot to learn.Do you see them?! No, not the flowers. LIGHTS!!! OhEmGee! Lights. Bright lights. Ben came yesterday and installed the track lights. After ten years in my craft room upstairs with no windows, then moving everything down to the basement to a room with windows and now LIGHTS! I want to be here every day, all day long.I feel a bit selfish about this beauty which has made my heart literally skip with joy. (Although those two green squares that match up kind of make me crazy. I’m going to let it go.) I feel a bit guilty about all the time I’ve put into something just for me, but just look at her! While Ben was installing lights, I cut a couple hundred little two inch squares and sewed them together to make the border. I loved hand sewing all of the flowers and leaves. I loved using scraps that I have on hand. Each one is different. No two are alike. It is colorful, bright, flowery, and fun. If you want to know my style…this is it.
What’s made your heart sing lately?
