Here they are! The very last of the Vermont photos!
This is how we spent our down time; games, puzzles, tarts, steaks, video games, phones, naps, keyboarding, laptops, movies, legos, pancakes, movies, etc.
I enjoyed the puzzle so much that I bought one to bring home and place out on a table to work on from time to time. I've also decided that as clean as I like my home, I do enjoy the lived-in look as well. Therefore, the new keyboard is on a stand in the dining room, within eye/earshot of the kitchen and living room, so I can enjoy the sounds of simple piano tunes while slaving away at the stove. It's amazing what a little vacation can do for the soul and mine has been revived. Perspective; it's nice to get a new one sometimes. Will I still get annoyed when toys and jackets and wrappers are strewn around the house? Yes. Yes, I will. But I definitely feel less tightly wound about the necessary clutter.
And a happy mom makes life much easier for the rest of the family, right?
