Last night Scott helped me put up my new curtain hanging system in the dining room (which has been sitting on my bedroom floor since April). I stood back and had to say, "holy curtains!" There's just a lot more fabric up there than what I'm used to. Here's the before and after:
I actually went to bed last night not quite sure if I even liked it. But this morning I felt better about it. I used a cable system from pottery barn. Basically the curtains just attach to little clips that slide along the wire. I like to leave my windows open and airy, but with this new set-up I have the option of pulling them closed if we want more privacy. There are a couple other things I'm going to add to the dining room as well, but all in good time. I'm even toying around with the idea of painting my table and chairs (just the legs & back) -- I'm thinking black. Right now they are navy blue. We shall see.
I guess I haven't mentioned already here but Anna is crawling all over the place. I've had a little bit of hard time transitioning back into the mindset of baby-proofing the house. Especially keeping little papers & things off the carpet -- we've already been through one gagging/puking spell due to my negligence. Anna is also eating real bananas and loving it. She naps twice a day -- very well. And we put her to bed at 7:30 and she's out for the night. She's a good little girl and has a smile that just absolutely makes you melt!
Conner has just completed memorizing all 13 Articles of Faith. He is pretty proud of it and likes to share his talent with anyone he sees. Including the staff at Safeway.
Payton gets more and more silly everyday. He's just at that cute 3-year old stage where you just want to eat him up (at least that's what Scott always says). But he makes sure to balance his cuteness with an almost equal part of naughtiness. Among other things, today it was using all my stamps to decorate his Whac-A-Mole game.
I guess that teaches me to buy the children's book character stamps. If Fox in Socks is printed somewhere, then it obviously belongs to Payton.
Yesterday I had the strange experience of going to church with no calling responsibilities to worry about. I've been warned that my freedom will not last for long. I'm very interested to find out where they'll put me next.
