I would be a cat- more specifically, my cat!
This is an opening exercise I like to use to start up groups at the hospital:
"If you were an animal- what would you be and why?"
My typical response is actually a flying squirl. The reason for that seemingly odd response is that I love trees- I really love to climb trees (although that doesn't happen much anymore), and I love being outside, and I would love to live in a cozy little nest.
With the recent fall weather- I've been longing to trade places with my dear kitty Frida- just for one day couldn't she be the Mommy and I could do this all day?????
Why, you may ask am I feeling this way....here's one great example:
I was emptying my bladder for the first time all day at 12:23 pm, while the children were eating lunch when I heard a loud "BANG!"- "what was that noise?" I asked- Zella responded "it was Mosie making a mess Momma!". I go into the kitchen to find this-
It was a hummus explosion- literally. all over the walls, all over the curtains, table, chair, him. UGGGGHHHH. I do so love being a mom- but some days, are tough!
On a another note, I had mentioned in a previous post that I had 3 projects to tackle this month- the update is that 2 are done, and I have 1 to go (Zella's costume).
Project #1: Mei Tai style baby carrier
These insane trees were all over the place- built into both the interior and exterior architecture of the building. They are dried out and stripped of their bark- possibly polyurethaned from what I could guess. I am convinced that we will figure out how to hook one of these suckers up in our basement playroom- how fabulous would this be for Mosie and ZZ to climb on all winter????
A very special touch were these great hand carved letters that Alex's dad made for them. They sat on the table where the place cards were.
and last, but not least- I made a painting that was displayed as guest enteredd the living room for the ceremony. To me- this painting represented all the things I know Alexa to love- trees, fall, Vermont, nature, and Alex of course!
I only wish I had a picture of the INSANELY delicious fall spice- gluten free cupcakes with buttercream frosting- they were unreal!
