I’m going to have to move my ‘Thursday Finds’ to another day. Thursday nights are a busy night over here, this is the night John and I usually prep the weeks dolls. Stuffing, cutting and tying – lol, all night long.
Luckily for us we are in the Alps segment of the Tour de France. I’m not a sports person at all – but I love watching TdF. Love it! It is so relaxing and exciting at the same time especially now with the very steep hill action. And – man alive- that Lance Armstrong.. very impressive. I have no idea what actual goes on as far as tactics, or whatever, and up until recently I thought that the Palleton was a rider (it’s the group of riders or something). I choose my favorites almost soley on their outfits and I don’t know how long the race goes one. I wrote more on my TdF love last year – you can see here if you want to see where the love began.
I picked up this book (Buddhism for Mothers of Young Children) to offset my current obsession with reading all the Twilight books (I’m actually listening to them while I work – I’m at the end of Eclipse and am about to start the Breaking Dawn one – LOVE them!). It’s a really easy read essentially about being mindful and present with our children – I really enjoyed it. It is a gentle reminder of this fleeting time. Where do I get time to read you ask? We visited my parents this weekend in Vancouver so Nonna had the kids pretty much all the time. It was the usual Vancouver trip that starts with a trip to the fabric stores and ends with a trip to the Aquarium. Fun times.
I should go – I feel guilty as I can see John on the couch stuffing bodies, I should join him. I have to show you all this though – these are some of my new clothes that I’ll have for the dolls. These clothes were made up by Reggie and Constance. I sketched out my doll clothing ‘vision’ and they made it a reality. These dolls will be up tomorrow for sale – around 1pm ish PST.
