happy, happy monday to you! summer is officially OVER for us this morning. the boys went off to school. 6th grade and 2nd grade. so unbelievable. they are SO grown up, it's not even funny. i made them a special breakfast (hard boiled eggs, waffles and fruit salad was their choice)... packed their new lunch boxes and backpacks...they put on their new school clothes and shoes and went off on their way! they are sitting there right now learning new things. louie is sleeping and the house is sooooo quiet. i'm ready though. ready to get back to work and have a little free time to myself once in awhile! chris' classes start thursday. his second semester of teaching quantum field theory. (what the heck IS that!?) he really loves it.
as a little tribute to the end of summer, i did a new painting. sort of a self portrait. it's me and the boys and louie...but it could be anyone really. chris wanted to know where he was. sorry honey. i painted it in another one of my OLD vintage berry drawers and attached a chippy old red ball to the top where a drawer pull once was long ago. i seriously LOVE painting on the galvanized metal...and love the old wood that frames it. makes for a pretty cool little piece of art to hang in your favorite room, don't you think!?
the shop in just a moment:)
and here a couple more pics of my little sweetheart louie...oh my i love this dog. absolute cutest little bundle of love ever....hard to snap a picture of this moving target!
i do have lots more pictures of our vacation to share with you...but our internet has been so sketchy lately. it takes forever and a day to upload them. grrrr...stupid internet dish. such a nightmare! okay...i'm off. have a great day everyone! and to all of you who have little (and big) kids headed off to their 1st days...wishing you a fabulous school year!! xoxo...jenn
