Simple Things

March 9th, 2012 by zoe No Comments

These days I havent been doing that many elaborate project with the kids. Why? Because they come up with projects, imagine,and complete them all on their own. I think it has something to do with the years I spent painting, glueing and doodling with them and partially to the fact that they have this space to be creative whenever they darn well please. So for right now I am embracing other things as we start the slow drip into Spring.

Keeping my spirits uplifted is priority one. Sunshine really is my favorite. Too many gray days and I feel like a zombie has had my thinking parts for lunch. I take this image on the authority of a 7-year-old friend who gave me a “History Lesson” which informed me that “Zombies eat brains“. I really need history lessons on such things, thank you Willow for your expertise.

So, for now I am not dwelling on the projects I keep dreaming of but I am not actually DOING. For now I am focusing on the little things that make me happy.

Like kids sitting down all by themselves and drawing cool stuff.

Like the major face painter in the family who needs to channel Spider-Man for at least one hour of each day.

Like bright and festive fish taco’s that remind me of the ocean.

Like hanging the results of my tie dye curtain project – so fun!

Inspired by this tutorial.

Like chasing my boys down the mountain on these slushy warm spring days and nights!

Like my new bedside motto – which makes me feel motivated and makes me laugh at the same time.

Practicing a good uppercut just in case those zombies ever do come to town!
