man, i love the weekend. i think even more than the weekend i love the anticipation of it. as soon as it actually begins, it feels like it'll soon be over, and then before we know it it's sunday night. AA Milne said it best, so i'll just leave it to him.
this weekend one of my favorite friends is in town from florida, and one of Russ' is moving to texas with his wife. so we'll be doing a bit of celebrating and some bittersweet well-wishing. and as always, wrangling these two babysprouts.
when i say wrangling, i mean it. Cal is covering some serious ground with his rolling & has even been known to army crawl an inch or two. i keep telling him to just be a little baby gosh-darnit, but he won't listen. he's taking after his brother in that way, maybe a bit more politely so. Hayes just laughs in my face when i sternly ask him to do/not do something. which usually ends in me laughing as well. note to self: work on poker face.
this weekend also marks the last before Bijou Market season begins again. it was a good month off, but we're ready to get back in the swing of work. Russ has been working on his first-ever booth (unless you count his water and fruit stand a few years ago, which pulled in an astounding $13, ha!)
he'll be selling a wi---de variety of steel letters, symbols, numbers, arrows etc. that you can commission and customize with different sizes & stains, patinas & paint. pretty exciting! we had a few neighbors over and his welding schedule is quickly filling up already which is exciting! if you'd like to commission him, he's at russbframe at gmail dot com.
here's the piece we put up in our house:
it's 8 feet long, and 70 pounds so let's all pray we never see an earthquake around here.
also, if you are a crafty lady or gent and want to apply for April, head to Bijou Market for info! Happy weekend!!
