so, i'll start this post off with pics of my two younger grandsons.
my little charlie baby. he is 2 1/2 weeks old and he has just stolen my heart. he is getting adjusted to life on the outside pretty well. ben is laid off for the winter so the three of them are enjoying just hanging out and bonding.
this is my #3 grandson, luke. he is 3 months old now and a happy, happy, happy baby. meghan has returned to working a few hours a week so jeff and i get to spend a few hours with him and joe (then i take joe home for more bubby time!)
i won't complain about the cold because i know the rest of the country has been cold too. especially in places that don't usually get that cold. we haven't had any more ice and i guess we've been having a fair amount of snow. but except for a few days this month when it warmed up into the 40's and we thawed a little, its been frigid temperatures for the last 6-7 weeks at least. i think its been the coldest winter since i've been here in maine (10 years now).
anyway, on the bright side each day is lighter and i find my mood improving and i'm not lighting up every room the way i was in december/early january. winter has its struggles, but i still wouldn't trade living here for anything.
we've gotten into a pretty good rhythm of working (me 20 hrs & jeff 24 hrs) spending time on home projects and spending time with the kids/babies. i want to make sure that i am a part of each ones life on a regular basis. joe and ethan now come and spend the night once a week. when the weather gets easier i will try to spend more time with them both one on one. i love being bubby!!!
i haven't been crafting anything lately because i am trying to organize my craft supplies. i need to know what i have and i need to know what i need to properly store them in my new craft room. its slow and tedious but i am slowly making my way through tote after tote. once that is done then i have some sewing projects and lots of scrapbooking to do.
now that my daughter doesn't need me cooking meals for them, i've been cooking very little the last week or so. i'm trying to eat a more "raw" diet so i've still got lots of prep to do, but no big, heavy meals. i've been juicing more regularly too. i feel like i have so much more energy when i eat this way.
until next time!
