Surrounded




Things that surround me:

Bars of freshly made lavender soap

boys playing with their daddy's lego cars

black beans simmering

stainless steal water bottle I got from christmas (thanks sis!)

mug of hot tea




My voice got lost somewhere in the van yesterday, at least that is what Warren said. I must have found it sometime last night because I'm back to my same decible level today. Warren exclaimed, "You found your voice Mommy!" Having lost my voice I actually realized two things...1) the boys can hear the tiniest whisper if they want to, 2)how often I tend to raise my voice to try to get their attention. Since, I couldn't raise my voice I didn't and things went much more smoothly than my loud voice could have imagined. So even though my voice has returned to it's rightful place I am striving to keep a quiet tone. We'll see how long it lasts....

Maybe I should pretend to lose my voice, just to keep things calm around here. :)

I hope you had a wonderful holiday and are getting off to a great start to the new year. I wanted to thank you for entering my Sew Mama Sew Giveaway. I know that that was a busy week for everyone trying to enter all of the contests and it was hard to actually take the time to get a good look at the blogs. So I would like to invite you back to one or both of my blogs to look around and see if one of them is a place that you would like to come back and visit again. If so, please consider signing up as a follower or putting me on your blog list so you will know when I post. My sewing blog is www.sewingwithtrudy.blogspot.com and my art blog is www.artisticcreationswithtrudy.blogspot.com I would also like to remind you that my 9 year old daughter has her own sewing blog. You can visit her at www.sewingsister.blogspot.com
Thank you so much for your time, and I hope you have a beautiful day.

God bless,

Trudy
