Relaxation

It occurred to me sometime yesterday that I needed to STOP. I hit the ground running after finding out we were getting the new house and had not stopped for a break and it had been almost a month. I had packed, traveled, packed, moved and started to settle in and it had taken its toll on me. I was feeling stressed and it was making me feel not my best. I've spent a lot of time resting over the past couple of days. I managed to get a couple of boxes unpacked, but that's about it.

Because I haven't done much this week, I don't have much to say, but I did want to leave you with another picture from the new place. The item in this picture might be the thing that made me decide on this house. Let me introduce you to my new best friend - the claw foot tub. Yes, it's okay to be jealous - I would be if I were you.
I shall leave you with another picture. It seems that late in my 6th year, I was already a budding artist. I'm sure the Snopy (Snoopy) and Garfid (Garfield) have never been portrayed with such emotion. These were in a box I didn't know I had - along with many other art projects from the mid 80s.

Okay, that's it! I'm coming over... let's have a bubbly party!

A good friend of mine and I did that to celebrate our first apartments... it was the middle of summer so we got into our bathing suits, drew a bubble bath, made up some yummy summer drinks, and sat in the tub sideways with our feet hanging off the sides...

We just sat and giggled and blew bubbles at each other all night, it was so much fun!!


But really... enjoy the tub, and do get some R&R... it's easy to get busy and forget to relax. I'm going through that now as well. The relaxing part after crazy times, that is... hehee.

Summer drinks? Bathtub swimming party? I'm all for it. I think that is JUST what I need. I failed to mention that my sister is having a garage sale on Saturday that I'm joining in on. If I can just get through the next few days.

At least I'm not planning my wedding/honeymoon like you are :)

And I think Elegant and Casserole need to get ahold of your childhood art! :)

I am jealous of your tub...I am inviting myself over for a bubble party. ;)

Those drawing are adorable. I loved Snopy and Garfid, and still do.
