{phfr} - Late July Edition

If any of you follow me on Instagram, I apologize for my redundancy here on the blog.  What can I say?  I don't have much more than this right now.


On one of my husband's work trips a year or two ago, he was sent to a Pacific island and brought me back this pretty piece of coral.  He's traveling again this week and it seems like forever until he returns again (actually it's just until Monday, I'm pregnant and hormonal I need any other reason to be dramatic?) and this small thing has been a source of comfort.
I finally finished the little crochet bag I was working on (and I finished our project we started way back in Lent too!).  It's not a very useful bag, but I learned a lot...

...and my girls like it, so...Happy!
I don't have any funny pictures to show, so how about a little story.  When my husband is traveling I have a very difficult time sleeping.  I feel like I am perpetually on call, and really I suppose I am.  Every noise I hear wakes me up.  Every. Single. Noise.  It's been three days of this and I am TIRED.  So the first night Dan was gone, I had finally gotten to sleep.  Around 2:30 am I heard a noise that sounded a bit like Fritter, so I decided to get up and investigate.  Sure enough, there was my son coming back to his room from the kitchen.  "What are you doing?!" I asked in a not very calm at all way.  "Eating chocolate," was the answer I got.  "From where?!" again not so calm.  "From the fridge," as if I should have known that all along.
Apparently, my big boy had woken up in the middle of the night and had a bit of a hankering for chocolate syrup and so proceeded to drink some from the bottle before venturing back off to bed.
Yeah.  Funny.
My husband is gone, it's hot outside, our baby pool has a couple of big holes in it, so this is the best I could come up with for activity the other afternoon while I sat in the shade with ice water.  Pathetic, but they had fun and that's what matters.
Visit Like Mother, Like Daughter for more contentment!

My Girls and Silliness

Yesterday I posted this picture to Instagram:
 What didn't get shown in the Instagram picture, mostly because of the way I had to crop it was the little "Band-Aid" on Sunflower's leg.  The girls had been playing outside while I was busy inside with Fritter's school (another post for another time).  Sunflower came inside to inform me that she had scratched her leg.  After a quick check from her busy mom, who honestly did little more than mumble a quick "You're ok.  Go outside please.", she went to her big sister.  Ladybug is always a devoted sister and so took matters into her own hands and created the orange tree leaf bandage you see in the picture below (of course I had time to take the picture, just not properly bandage her leg):
Necessity is the mother of invention, me thinks.  :)
