The Great Crate Date

Sometimes we have fun here. Just sometimes though.

Cecilia was having so much fun playing in the dog crate she thought she might be in trouble.

Nothing a little jail time couldn't solve.

Nothing would slow her down for long though.

Harvey decided to join in.

Trying to get a photo with both children in focus is difficult.

Harvey decided to take matters into his own hands.

Nap Time Nooks Part 2

Cecilia fell asleep while eating. This is the girl who usually protests she is tired till her head hits the pillow.

For my 30 by 30 goals this month I practiced the piano for 3 hours every week. I know I wrote that it was really hard last month to find time, but I found it was even harder to wake up at 6 am every day. Even harder than that was trying to go to bed at 9 pm. You lose a lot of valuable alone time going to bed early. Projects suffer. I'm going to keep at it this next month though. Last month I managed about 3 days a week to be up by 6 and in bed by 9. This month I might just be able to hit 5 days, and if not 4 would be fine. I'm  also going to see if I can learn to do a hand stand this month as a backup.

24 goals to go means I have 2 years left on this project. I also means I had a birthday! We spent the day eating wonderful food and playing awesome games with friends and family. I made the best cherry chip cake. I will be making that recipe probably every year for the rest of my life now.

In other news, Captain and I refinished a pair of nightstands I picked up from a yard sale. It took us a month of evenings to finish it, but they turned out lovely in the end.

If you're happy and you know it clap your feet.

Cecilia loves everything that is Harvey's.

She uses his nap time to play with all his toys that he carefully hordes away while he is awake and alert.

She is quite pleased with herself.

Nap Time Nooks

I promise you, I did not put him in there or encourage this in any way. Harvey just really likes the puppy's bed.
