I haven’t posted since Hannah’s first day of school, it’s just the start of the busy season around here. I haven’t started her Halloween costume yet, and we’re still settling in to the school year. Plus we’ve hired a new sitter, and I’m heading into a lot of holiday deadlines with work.

Once again, it’s summer, and I didn’t take many outfit photos last month. At all. But I did grab three days of outfits in Italy, where I turned on my full fancy tourist look.

So, I’m working full time now, and life is a juggle. We have a part-time sitter, I’m not spending every afternoon with H anymore. Which is great for her–she gets to run around with a fun college student who does all the fun things she wants to do. And it’s great for me–I work, I use my brain, I love what I’m doing. But I miss those long afternoons with her, and the projects and activities we’d do together.

When the new year rolled around I got my usual urge to reorganize, but this year I really, really reorganized. We replaced the 9-year-old bedroom carpet in my studio with some office carpet that wears well, I completely moved furniture around, and I threw out…quite a lot. I wanted the space to feel more open, and even though I have a LOT of craft supplies…I wanted it to feel as contained as possible.

I’m juggling a lot as May gets started, and I haven’t posted in 2 weeks. I’m getting over strep throat for the THIRD time since the beginning of April, and we’re getting ready for a family holiday this month. But April was a great month, with a spring break trip to Mystic, CT and my first quilt finish of 2017 (I know, it only took until April).

Because they’re still delicious, even if they did take out my MacBook. Here’s the thing: Adam travels a few days a month for work now, and he hates shellfish and seafood. So, when he leaves town I take advantage and cook myself shrimp, scallops, mussels. Especially mussels, this recipe has become my go-to dinner (because a bag of mussels is like $7).

It was so gray and grim today. But even with the weather, it was a great day! Tuesdays are The Days around here. We already had a lot going on, but since the new year it’s gotten even busier. This is a good part of my view every Tuesday, just out the car window. And not always raining.

I think my new Life Planner cover kind of sums it up for this post. In my campaign to catch up on life, to get back to it, I’ve got a few planner updates.
