Growing Adventures

Weeks ago on a Saturday we went for a long walk on the Tolt Pipeline, it was a beautiful day. Later that evening we had an accident in our home. It was so incredibly horrible and frightening. He *is* wonderful (about two weeks later). Thank you to all of you who prayed and sent us so many good and powerful thoughts and prayers.

So, now, he's been himself again for more than a week. And he's smiling and giggling now. He smiles and laughs a little every time he's re-introduced to Francis the (ceiling) Fan, which he sees from the changing table. He looks so good in red that I'm planning two sweaters in his favorite deep, good red. Basic Crew and Geordie Stripe Yoke Jacket (Ravelry links).

The apple tree out front of church. I'm so excited to eat one of these this fall. Maybe enough to make a pie, or applesauce?

And this week. I made some art. A couple of pages in the journal. Got a couple more pieces of art on the wall of the studio. Need to keep doing this around the house, we have so much in boxes still.

I ran out of nails before I could finish adding the frame. Once I have this completed, I'll be posting to etsy.

Fell in love with hearts again after wandering through the Fresh Paint show at the Everett Marina on Saturday. Expect a series of these.

I'm happy to see you've had some time for art, even with the little bundle of joy. What a scary event you two parents had with your little man. I'm happy to hear he's in great shape. And he's adorable, by the way.

Your ArtFest pal,

Ah!! You fell in love with hearts. You must have seen Tami Cole's paintings. She inspired me to do more hearts also.
So glad you are all well and living the good life.

Yikes! I run away to the woods for three weeks and look what I miss! I'm glad I'm hearing about this when Tex is all OK, though, cause I don't know if I could deal with worrying about him along with everything else. I'm so glad he's doing well.

I wonder what it is about ceiling fans, and even completely inert light fixtures, that fascinates babies? I'm glad he's back to his learning, growing, happy self.
