Thoughtful


Waiting, waiting, waiting. Sometimes it feels like it's all I seem to do. Today we're still waiting for the new refrigerator...we've had to cancel the delivery twice because we haven't had time to empty the kitchen out. There's been church, and parties, and picnics, award nights, beach trips, museum trips, class presentations all in the space of a week, not letting up for the month.


Usually I really enjoy this time of year...enjoy getting out and being with the kids at school, but this year has been overburdened. The piles of winter clothes are growing in the corners unattended, passed over by the bid for clean clothes. The machines wash and dry, all day, all night till there's no one awake to keep them going. Dishes piled high, washed, piled high, washed. Next week, more parties, sleep overs, picnics, class trips, potlucks, exams and dances.


My Mum sent me her old Photoshop Elements and I thought I was going to get to play around with textures and layers more...but I realize it's the same process as the one I've been using with Micrsoft Picture It, which is actually much quicker and simpler.

My Mother always used to tell me: "Do what you must, not all that you can." I think it's a good credo when you're feeling overwhelmed with the must-do's vs. the want to do's. Lovely photos. :)
