New to Sunday Lately? It works like this: every week there are prompts from the Blogger Tribe (led by Katy, Angelica, Meaghan, and Nicole) to describe what is happening in your life. Then you join the linkup and we e-hang out every Sunday, sharing that small glimpse into everyone else’s corner of the world. Trust me, it’s really fun.
This week’s prompts are: Doing, Appreciating, Designing, Humming, Expecting.
It’s been a busy week, but yesterday was especially packed – in the morning I went to volunteer at our city’s Ride for Refuge. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s a cool idea and supports multiple charities in Canada and the US who raise money for displaced, vulnerable, and exploited people. I was brought in by friends who volunteer with Matthew House Ottawa, and helped to serve with the food team. It was great fun, and so far they’ve raised almost $80,000!!! Donations are still being accepted, and though I haven’t registered to be pledged donations, some of my friends have – if you’re interested in donating to this great cause, you can sponsor the Crazy Camels – every little bit counts!
Relaxing Sundays. I’ve said this before & I’ll likely say it again – Sundays are the best day of the week. Today has been full of toddler snot & now a sick husband as well, but I’m just so grateful that we have the day to rest & recover before work starts tomorrow.
More things than my husband wants to hear about – he’s often on my case about finishing projects that I’ve started before moving on to something else. I see his point of view, but I also see that it’s nice to have more than one thing to work on, for when one project gets too boring or overwhelming (or I have to wait for fabric to arrive in the post or be pre-washed once it has arrived). This week that just passed I finished hanging some artwork around the house (a “project” that was supposed to be done a couple months after we moved in 2 years ago!), and I finished re-doing a dresser that I started at the beginning of June. It’s nice to finally have that one out of the living room & into our bedroom where it belongs!
newworldson – pretty much their entire discography! lol. My son LOVES their music, and so do I, so cranky teething baby + newworldson = happy smiles & living room dance parties = happy mom. It’s a pretty awesome equation.
My husband to complain as I try to snap a million pictures of him in his new sweaters I’m making. A favourite pattern company of mine has a men’s hoodie in testing right now, and my husband really doesn’t mind being a guinea pig, which is great. He’s not so fond of posing for pictures after it’s all said & done with, however. He does it to amuse me/because I ask, and I love him for it, but it’s really not his cup of tea. I’m sure one day he’ll come around though, right?! *fingers crossed* (pictures to come next week!)
