right now

Right now:
1 We are sitting on this big, comfy, glider chair listening to the thunder and rain.
We purchased this chair for one reason. Clearly, that reason was not for its beauty... but more comfort AND most importantly so I could hold more than 1 girl at once. It was nice when I had Quincey because I could hold both girls & then when we added Lola to the mix we'd all four be on this chair reading books and falling asleep at bedtime. Avery would sit on the arm. It was nice especially if you have kids close in age.
2 Getting ready for this girls birthday.
3 Planning our trip somewhere with lots of sunshine and no computers and cellphones. Yes!
4 Enjoying teaching my classes at Something Splendid.
5 Working on products for the next Dear Lizzy line.
6 Dreaming of the above number three.
7 Dreading making a dentist appointment for my toothache. Why do I have the worst teeth?
8 Dying to chop off my hair. It's time.
9 Thrilled that despite my brown thumb, our garden is sprouting corn and the raspberries are a foot high.
10 Laughing at Quincey asking me over & over & over if she can put on her new "swimming soup" from Lime Ricki.

glad your garden is growing, we planted herbs and they are all dead...your hair is fab, but I am sure it will be just as fab shorter! good luck with the tooth, I have a cracked crown that needs attention, and I keep dragging it out too, teeth are a pain in the tush...

Can't imagine you chopping off that glorious beautiful hair! But change is good too!

Lisa said...

Your hair is beautiful, but cannot wait to see the new cut!

Your "right now" list sounds great!! Turning 5 is such a milestone!! Have a great time on your trip!! I think I need a chair like that one...if only my kids would sit and listen to me read. Maybe they would if I had a comfy chair like that :)

#10 made me laugh cause my 2 year old calls it a swimming soupie:)

Your long tresses are so beautiful, and your hair always looks so perfect in all your photos ... I am sure that you will continue to look gorgeous with shorter hair too ... looking forward to seeing your new Dear Lizzy line.
Cheers, Pip

Just cut my hair too, and though I've never had a short haircut that I love, I love love love my new short do! It will be so nice to have less thick hair to deal with during the hot Utah summers.
PS, I'm so looking forward to putting on my Lime Ricki "swimming soup" too, just not looking forward to people SEEING me in said "soup"

You might be interested in the free .pdf "Rainbows" download being offered at this site. It would look nice hanging on your wall behind the chair.

great comfy chair

The chair looks so comfy!! Don't like the dentist much here either, in high school while at an appt. to have my braces checked, I bit the orthodontist(on purpose)! Anyway, Raspberries? I never thought to add those to our garden, love those!!
Love your hair!! But I understand my hair is the longest it has ever been and it is so hot here in NC right now and it has got me thinking about cutting mine too!! If you get a new cut, please share!!

Paige said...

hi! I'm sure you've been asked this many times but can you tell me what paint color that is on your wall in the cute photo of your sweet daughter above? Thank you & enjoy your blog and Dear Lizzie line. :o)

The quilt on your chair is awesome, and i am jealous of your computer-free, phone-free vacation!

You know what Lizzy... you are so great you fill my heart with love and fill my mind with happiness!! you are an inspiration to everyone and I think its great how you are a member of church like I am, just seeing that I am not the only member is great! I am only 13 but this is the best blog ever ( apart from my sisters: my handcraftedhome) I love your posts and your beautiful children and you have changed my life around about kids and how when I am older I want to have kids!!! Thankyou so much for your inspirational posts!

I have that same chair that I bought when I had my first daughter five years ago. Now I have three beautiful daughters (too) and we still love to snuggle in that big old chair. I love your blog. I read it often but don't always have a hand free to write a comment.;) I guess I feel a little connected to you because of a couple similarities, my father past away a few years ago and we both have 3 girls. Anyways, you seem like such a wonderful and sweet person. Thanks for sharing your lovely world with all of us. I have a private blog but if you would want to see it just email me at suzannejhart(at)mac(dot)com. Thanks!
