my head feels full of fluff

In my plans for the day, I had wanted to write about my new word (more like phrase) for the year, but I am so tired I can't think clearly. I will get to it when I am more coherent, okay?

Michael has been waking up between 4 and 4:30 every morning for the past few weeks, and typically we just tell him to get in bed with us. For the past few days though, we have been encouraging him to stay in his own bed. It was easier to lay down with him in his bed when his and Emily's beds were pushed together, but Emily rearranged and moved the beds apart (which is very good and it looks very cute!) and a single twin bed is NOT big enough for a mommy or daddy + a 9 year old Michael.

Steve took the shift night before last, and when I found him he was sleeping like a log by Michael. Me? No such luck. I was mostly awake from 4 o'clock on this morning. And I am not an early riser! So my head feels stuffed full of fluff, just like Winnie the Pooh's.

Instead of resolutions, then, I'll show you some pictures that I have in progress.

Gardening Gone Wild's January photo contest's theme is: "Macro in a Mason Jar". You'll have to take a look at the technique on the website, but take a look here at my attempts at fulfilling the assignment. Can you tell what the subject matter is of the first three photos?? :)

And I will leave you with a sweet & funny comment that Steve made to me on IM today when I asked if he had said anything that I missed when I accidentally closed the IM window:

"you mean you missed my 300+ lines of romantic poetry describing how much I love you? :D - just consider that it happened. because for some reason, I don't have it on my end either." It made me smile! :)

Have a wonderful day and hopefully I will feel awake and aware enough tomorrow to tell you about my new motto/mantra for 2011. :)


  1. My guess is peels, skins, or wrappers or something like that! :)

  2. Tammy: Yes!! It was the skin from a garlic. Good eye! :)

    CB: Yes he is :)
