My Saturday Evening Post: 11.4.17

THE MUSCLES YOU NEED TO DRINK COFFEE
Not sure what they’re called, but I pulled them this week. Took Thursday night off, because my side hurt so much. Felt almost normal on Friday, but when I went to bed last night it was like, “Psyche! Just kidding!” This morning it felt worse than it had originally. So, this Saturday evening I am clutching a heating pad under my arm and reminding myself to breathe through the pain.

CONFETTI FOOD
Lucy’s first birthday party theme is confetti. I have been looking up food ideas. Fruit and vegetables are no-brainers. Anyone have any suggestions?

NO, HE WON’T BE NAMED LINUS
Hannah selected the name Isaac for a son years and years ago, and in March she will finally get to use it. That’s right folks. Baby #2 is a boy. We are very excited!

HOW’D I DO?
My system didn’t fail me! There are more sticky notes on the right, than on the left; I feel considerably less stressed about what I still have to do; and I have a lot of hope for a good ending to this year.

WHERE MY HISTORY LIVES
I love going up to my attic. My family makes fun of me, but every time I go up there I see something that makes my heart happy. I always tell myself I’m going to purge everything, but some things just keep being useful.

Case in point: I needed curtains for a window in the front entryway. This week, I remembered a set of curtains I had made in 1990! They fit the window and “decor” perfecly!

While I was up there, I found a picture my Mother loved. It’s a print my sister, Jill, gave her. I think it’s a nice addition, and I’m pretty sure Lucy’s going to like it.

I really do love old things, especially when they hold a bit of my history.

Come on in!
