An Update

Well everyone, I think it has been some time since I wrote anything of consequence - in that you are all due for an update...of sorts!

So the move to the country is postponed - no chicken farming for us anytime soon!  The house we were interested in was not all we hoped it would be.  We did a home inspection (thankfully hubby is a home inspector - so no charge) and we found some issues that we were not interested in dealing with at the price being asked.  Though slightly disappointed we are happy to know what we know now and not later!

On our renos - well, they continue...the heat/humidity slowed us down a bit - sadly the bedroom is still not done, but as I type Dave is putting the new hinges on our freshly revamped kitchen cupboards! Yippee, cupboard doors again! 

Olivia is turning 3 on Saturday and though I should be all "Wow I can't believe she is three!?!"  It's more a "Wow, I can't believe I've only been a mom three years now!?!?"  Though the fact that she wears a size 7 now is something else all together...remember the post a couple of months ago about how her feet had grown and we had to get new shoes...well repeat that for this last weekend - kids eh?!

Catherine is learning to trust in herself and walk unaided - I am happy and a little sadden, I find she is growing so fast!

I haven't been able to do any art since the studio tour as my studio is acting as our master bedroom until the reno is done.  Though I'm still open for portrait work if anyone is interested! ;)

The summer is whizzing by and there are big things on the horizon!  I continue to seek God in all things - big or small - and I am still working towards knowing Him better!  I need to be more disciplined in just about every area of my life - Lord help me!

I am not sure of the future of Homemaker Design, as a magazine - or at least at the scale I had intended.  Though I enjoy it and love to have it around, there is not enough support and I think God is calling me to other things.  The option shall remain and I will keep up on this blog (though really other then a couple of loyal 'fans', I'm not sure if anyone really reads this?!?!)  But I think I may have to decided carefully where I will put my focus...

All is all, the summer has been enjoyable - bloody hot yes, but still enjoyable and hey, when it gets too hot, just remember - there is less the six months 'till Christmas!!!
