Summertime....Slow but sure!

Slow...............Slow..............Slow...........My computer is slow and it's making me sleepy waiting for my turn to put anything up. I made myself a cup of coffee while I waited. The Toot's taking her nap and this is my only opportunity to get on the computer. 

I've been waiting for my two Sculpy pieces to dry and this has been going on for over a week now. I also made some Sculpy stands for them. I've sealed the paintings and the stands with a clear varnish and it's taking a long time to dry completely. So I wait, and wait, and wait.

The heat has been slowing me down too. Some days I knockout on the couch while the little one is napping. Summertime is always hard on me and I can't seem to get much artwork done. 

We've been to the library a lot and having a fun time there. We've found one that has a great children's area that the Toot enjoys very much. She makes friends easily and I'm glad she has this quality in her. She's also learning to move on when someone doesn't want to play. No hurt feelings just keep going with your own fun. Today we met a cute little red head named Phoenix. She was about a year older than my Toot and they got along fine playing with the sponge blocks together. In a couple of weeks we'll be starting our Mommy and Me class again.  I will try to get her in some kind of dance class that will also be starting in September. 

I'm still trying to get organized and clearing out clutter. It's getting done...slowly. I've still got her playpen in the living room that is full of stuffed animals and toys. That is my next project that I'd like to have out and sorted in a different room and in a box or shelved. 

It seems that cleaning is the only thing I can get myself to do these summer days. I like the workout and the feeling of accomplishment when I finish. This has probably been my usual routine every year and I never thought about it until now that I've typed it. Yes, I like to clean. It's meditative for me. Tomorrow the Toot and I will be going to my father's house and I'll be cleaning over there. I want to give his kitchen a thorough cleaning. He enjoys yard work and he's been working on a backyard fence over the summer, so I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to help him where I knew he needed it. Today I went to the store to buy some cleaning supplies and now I'm ready for a good workout. 


  1. What a beauty and cute little girl, so spontaneous :)
    To me summer is the same i can't stand the humidity of this place however it's beautiful beaches ...
    Good way to give a hand to your father.

  2. Thanks Pura,
    We'll be seeing cool days soon.
    It's sad, but our California beaches are filthy. We went to a beach a couple of weeks ago and I was shocked to see so much trash at the shoreline. I'm sure your beaches are not as bad as ours.
    Have a great summer!
