Mojo Monday

Good afternoon! I just got back in from storytime at the library with the kids and a few quick errands Joann’s for some pinking shears and Michael’s for some toggle clasps for making beaded stitch markers. Of course, I had to stop at WaWa and get a cup of coffee. I like their Dark Roasted and even though there are 5 Starbucks (talk about overkill) in the path that I travelled, I didn’t go to any because when I pay $4 for a cup of coffee, I think it should be made perfect each time and depending upon which one I go to and who is working, I usually have to watch them like a Chicken Hawk to make sure it is to my liking. Sometimes they are too lazy to actually include real froth in my latte and actually look disgusted when I ask them to redo it with real froth. Anyhoo, that is another conversation for another day. 😉

How was your weekend? Mine was okay not too much going on but I titled this Mojo Monday as I am trying to get my crafting mojo back. I have a slew of ideas filling my head yet I have one project that I really don’t want to do for a few reasons but a dear friend asked me to do it, so I will but just knowing that I have to do has really sapped my mojo.

My parents found a sewing machine for Princess and it is way too cute, pics later after I deal with the forementioned must do craft item. She sewed a few scraps on Saturday and keeps begging to want to sew something. It was $2 and a real steal and cleaned up nicely after my Dad removed the Bratz labeling as everybody knows that I really do not like those dolls. 🙂

Homeschooling is coming along. I can see the learning which is always rewarding but I feel the need for a bit of small change. I was doing my own thing and it was looking like a patchwork quilt which is good but sometimes required more work than I had time so I am going to loosely follow the Ambleside Curriculum of course continuing with Math-U-See and some other items. The Prince is picking up so much by being present that he went through Book 1 and Book 2 of the Bob Books the other night to prove that he can read too…of course this is wonderful that he is learning so much but it also means that @ 3.5 years of age he is turning into a real whippersnapper.

I could stall on here all day but I have some other items to tend to so I must tend, tend, tend. I will be responding by email to many of the comments tonight and thanks for leaving me comments, I really do appreciate it. 😀
