Did 7 weeks really went by without me posting anything here?
I wish I could blame the kids for making time fly so fast, but I’m painfully aware of the fact that my time management skills weren’t so great to begin with…
So anyway, here’s the short update on how we spent the last weeks:
We went on our annual Christmas season visit to the Burnaby Village Museum, and spent a very nice evening there.
Then we visited Seattle for a short family vacation. The trip was tailored to fit the little ones, and it was really good fun for everyone involved. We visited the Children’s Museum, the Pacific Science Canter, Seattle Aquarium, and even the very child friendly Seattle Art Museum. The fact that we could easily drive to Seattle instead of buying 4 plane tickets, made the whole thing even better, and I think it’s safe to assume we will visit the area again and check out more attractions (like the music/sci-fi museum and the Museum of Flight).
And then there was this silly promise I made to myself, that – since this is a crafty blog – I should actually try to make something before my next post… I did manage to finally craft a new bag for the shop this week, but no more promises of that kind for me!
A teeny tiny fraction of my time also seems to be consumed by a certain someone who needs to demonstrate the fact he has indeed turned two, and also by his older brother who thinks that just because I brought him into this world, I should also actually be parenting him (the nerve!).
Staying indoors does not improve the situation, so we were very happy to have some days of snow play.
Oh, and I also used some of my time to move my sewing room out of the dark, window-deprived basement room, and into the spare bedroom upstairs. Which means that when I do manage to walk in there during the early hours of the morning, the sun and the trees outside might make my wall look like this:
Which I really like, even if it doesn’t magically create more time for me to sew…
