My Monthly Favorites

I have been keeping a running list of some favorite 
blogs, websites and links that I run across.
Things, people, ideas that interest me at that moment.

My Favorite Room

We moved in May to a new home closer into town.
Everyone has their own space with more rooms to spare, 
which makes everyone very happy.
Room for those who want some space, 
to be alone, 
paint, read,
to play music,
and one of my favorite rooms,
the 'yoga den'.

When I need a minute, this is where I go.
This room and my soap room.
(I have a big comfy recliner)  :)
This room is sanity.
There is space for yoga and if the kids come too, there is room for them as well.
It's simple but oh so sweet for those mama moments.

A comfy couch, drums, yarn, meditation, yoga and it smells oh so good.

Good day

In Charge and Berries!

Papa was in charge while I cooked dinner.
I peek out the window to bath-time,
fully clothed, water guns and all.

On another note,
Blueberry season is coming to an end.
I took the little boys to our favorite picking spot,
Buffalo Creek.

We left with a few gallons of berries and a handful of sunflowers.
It was a good day.
