Took pictures of Busybee today and got this one of her sniffing a flower on the deck. So cute! I hope I can get my eating under control so she grows up and doesn't learn any bad habits from me. I'm glad I got the band and am working toward a healthier life.
On the home deocrating front, Mr. Coconut and began sanding and priming the cabinets. This is a small preview of what the cabinets used to look like. Notice the wood floor color TOTALLY clashes with the cabinets, hense, the reason we're painting them. I bought an Antique white which is a warm cream color. i also bought a Ralph Lauren "tea stain" glaze that I will rub into the corners to highlight the panels of the cabinets and warm them up a bit. We only got the lower cabinets done - sanding and priming took much longer than I thought it would. I'm also going slow b/c I'm so worried about creating visible streaking. The primer is oil based, so if I create ridges in the paint, its going to really show up later when I paint them. Anyway, I don't know if I told you guys that I also knit. I'm knitting a little jacket for BusyBee but I swear, I never get through one row uninterupted by a kid needing/wanting something. Anyway, while grandma took the kids for most of the day today, I knit for a solid hour straight! It was heaven and I made a lot of progress. It felt great! Knitting is like yoga for me - its very calming for me and a real stress buster.
Mr. Coconuts was away meeting a car owner for breakfast - he's racing cars again competitively this Fall and this is a new owner that he's entertaining driving for. Its nothing glamorous nor profitable - its his hobby, that's all. Anyway, he's sewed up all his sponsors and thinks he will go ahead and do it again this year. I'll keep you all posted on how well he does.
On another front, remember how I told you that BusyBee loves to take my camera and take pictures? After I took pictures of her with the flowers she insisted I let her take a few. She snapped these, and I can't help but just love the perspective. This is how she sees the world from her short little self! So crisp too! Lucky shots for a 2 - almost 3 year old next month!!
