ironing in the new year


i never thought i would spend the last week of 2009 laundering new sheets and towels. the sheets took over 2 hours to iron; i found it to be as meditative activity as jogging. and the results were so very worth the effort. perhaps 2010 will be the year when i finally get my house in order. although, there's a good chance we may be moving. to somewhere exciting, i hope.

i'll be 30 in 17 days, leon will be 1 at the end of february.

may this new year and decade be a happy and healthy one for everyone!

Lucy has that exact same toy! It's still going strong, though different balls get lost for a time, only to turn up a few months later. Leon looks so cute in those overalls. Love the colour combination.

I'm a Cap too and I'll be (eek) 37 in ten days.

Happy New Year to your sweet family!

I spent the first day of the year scrubbing my apartment, and while it wasn't so exciting, it was so rewarding and appeased the superstitious part of my personality! So I can completely understand the satisfaction of ironing. Wishing you much health and happiness in this decade! 30 is great! You're going to love it. xo

lots of january birthdays, it looks like!

leon loves his new toy, although he like to use the hammer for other things than the toy, and the balls are always disappearing and reappearing in strange corners of the apartment.
