Hello friend! How is it going on this third day of the year? It’s quiet in my house and I don’t know how it makes me feel!
We’ve had so many people coming and going in the last two weeks and with my mate at home it’s been loud and boisterous and just so beautiful. I miss it now, but I’m also kind of relieved, which is weird, I know.
I may still be recovering from the trauma known as 2020, but socializing these days, while enjoyable, takes a lot out of me.
I’m a sociable person by nature, but hosting, cooking and cleaning is exhausting, isn’t it? Why are there so many dishes? And why does the vacuuming never stop? LOL!
And yet… I still love the rush of having friends and family over. It just reminds me that life goes on.
Anyway, the only sound I hear now is Rosie chewing on her kibble and the fridge humming. I’m a little lonely, I won’t lie.
Yesterday I wanted to be productive and planned to put away the Christmas decorations but instead we spent the time painting Connor’s new rain boots with those awesome Posca colored pencils.
Connor did most of the designs but I added a little bit here and there with some hearts and stars.
These rain boots are from a Canadian brand new to me called Kamik, by the way, and they were so good at keeping Connor’s feet dry that I want a pair for myself.
Before we decorated them yesterday, we took the boots to stomp on puddles on a hike we love to do in our town that takes you to a waterfall, and even after crossing several streams, Connor’s socks stayed dead dry.
But my socks got wet!
Am I the only person who just can’t do anything with wet socks? You are my trouble pet. Anyway, I’m on a mission to find myself a pair!
I’m also on a mission to apply eyeshadows that aren’t NARS Fez or Kalahari (my go-to colors for, oh, the last six months or so). This morning I was digging in a drawer and unearthed some Jane Iredale beauties!
If today’s FOTD goes well, I’ll let you know.
How are you doing today? What’s new from your side?
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
