My First Award........

An Award: So, I received my very first award! The Lemonade Award is passed to bloggers for showing great Attitude and/or Gratitude. Thank you Tammy so very much. Tammy's blog was one of the very first that I found when I discovered the world of blogging. I love that her posts are incredibly honest and inspiring - it can be difficult to be so honest with yourself let alone to a world of strangers (at least some are). I am awed by her daughters and all of the exploring that they do together.

I know that there are some rules to the award - it's getting late here so I will complete with the follow through in tomorrow's post.

Fun: In other news, Max had a playdate today with a great buddy from school. We have a mutual agreement with fellow parents that there will be no media (TV, music, computers) involved in playdates. When you let children use their own imaginations it's amazing where they will go. Max and his friend spent two inspired hours building a wonderful gnome treehouse out of every block and building thingy that they could find. I wish that I could have taken a picture before they proceeded to demolish it!

Crafting: My creative space aka my "Treehouse" is a mess. I am committed to getting it organized and cleaned up. The hard part is that it's a tiny room that is used for an office/storage/crafting/Max's art space and my husband's sports paraphernalia dumping ground. Yikes?! Where do I start? First I think that I have to clear my bedroom closet. This will give me space to box up and store my husbands junk, oops, I mean treasures :) Second............ hmm.

Dinner: My husband is out of town so we had our family favourite - Breakfast for Dinner and fruit salad for dessert. Does anyone else do breakfast for dinner?

I treasure the winter, but look forward to days like this.............
