Breathe in and breathe out.

Yesterday I had a friend send me an email wondering if I was okay.  She said, "It isn't like you not to respond right away."  It had been several days since I had even checked my email accounts and she had sent me a few.  I have been really busy.  Do you ever get so busy that you don't even know how to slow down?  So you just keep going and going and going and then when you can't go anymore, and when you finally get to stop, your eyes just well up with tears and those big droplets of saltiness stream down your cheeks because you realize that your body is finally still ... and it feels nice, but its sore too, and you are filled with emotions for lots of reasons and they just all come pouring out at the same time?

Sometimes I do, like now.

My basement project is almost finished.  I made a list yesterday morning of all the final touches that need to be done.  It's amazing how many little things are still left to be done when you think you are already almost done - you know?  But Saturday is the day that my renters will officially move in.  Ready or not.

Deep breath ... so I haven't decorated for Halloween, which is a little sad for me because it really is my favorite holiday (a close one to Christmas though, since isn't Christmas everyone's most favorite holiday?)  I did just visit two of my sister's houses who have decorated for Halloween.  They go a little nuts at Halloween.  It runs in our family.

Here is a peek at just a few of Spring's things .... she has a gift for arranging, (although just a few pictures don't do her justice) ... and I really like her style.


  1. SO GLAD to know you are okay...or at least ALIVE! I was seriously worried! It is so nice to have you's funny but emailing and your blog do make me feel like I am still a part of your life...even if it is all the way from California! I feel like we are way more connected since we have these tools! Much better than only having when our babies were small! I LOVE SPRING'S DECORATIONS....your family all got those genes from your parents! You are so lucky! And don't stress about Halloween this'll come again for you before we even know it! I FEEL LIKE I JUST PUT CHRISTMAS AWAY!!!

  2. cute cute stuff spring! if you go visit again, i want to come. i want to see courtney's stuff too. :)

    sorry about your tears. you're almost there!!! it'll be worth it.

  3. You're almost there! Then you will be able to relax. I pray that you will find relaxtion and peace. :) Your sister's decorations are awesome! I love everything! And, you still have time to get out your Halloween stuff if you want.

  4. Happy Halloween Inspirations! Hang in there! :)

  5. I do get how one can get soooo busy...that was me the other feels weird when I can't get to the computer. I do try to give myself a break from it every Sunday...I may do a prepost and date it for Sunday but I do like to stay away.

    Love these Halloween treasures. I have not done any decorating for is not such a big thing up here in Canada.

    Hugs for a less busy week.....
