okay…so it is like 10000 degrees outside today. zoey tried to help me with the sprinkler, but she was attacked by some huge stinging bug…go figure. she wasn’t stung, but she was scared. we both screamed like crazy girls and went back inside. i’ve been inside since then. that means i took a bunch of pics of random stuff all over the place…..IN THE HEAT. i’m not even sure what that means, but i hope these photos inspire you…..i am supposed to be calling doctors, folding clothes, doing laundry, sending payments in the mail, organizing my thoughts, etc…..but instead, i’m blogging. it’s much more fun anyway. if i don’t stay tapped into the world of technology, i will become electronically flabby and depressed. who wants that???
i found this adorable photo of arek when he was about 2. i used to put him in my vintage washtubs w/a bunch of toys and tons of cheap pink bubble soap and let him play. HE LOVED IT. who says you have to go to the waterpark to have a good time??????
here are a bunch of pics from around the house today. i am still finding goodies my fairy junkmother and her husband gave me. i can’t get enough of the stuff they love!!! i love, love, love these vintage numbers. i think they are so sweet.
i was also given these vintage birdies and this plastic plant.
