Grateful for....a quiet week

After having a lot on my plate over the last few weeks, this week was so very needed.

A quiet week at home, a to-do list I could work on but didn't have to, and not a lot of running around - it's been fantastic.

So things I'm grateful for :

1 - A sleeping toddler. The mostly quiet week at home has been great for both Levi and I. Levi has been having a two hour nap each morning, which allows me to get the house sorted and do a little creating. And he has been a much happier child for it, and that, in turn, has made our days so much more relaxing.

2 - Catching up with friends - you know the type of friends where you can just hang out over a coffee and the conversation flows easily, as does the laughter? Good times.

3 - Creative time. Finally working on what's been in my sketchbooks and brain, and loving it!

Joining in with Maxabella Loves and Kymmie from A Day in the Life of Us - why not pop over and play along too?



  1. Two hour nap!? I'm so jealous! My toddler hasn't slept that long in aaaggggeeeessss. Love creative time. Hope the pen and paper time yielded wonderful results. :)

  2. Lovely list!!
    You're a screenprinter!! Yaaaaay!! It is addictive isn't it :o)

    Thanks for stopping by..

  3. Oh I'd give anything for a two hour nap. Soak it up!

  4. Toddler naps and creative time are the best! It's amazing how much you can actually get done in two hours! :)

  5. It's amazing how a sleep makes for a better day and a happy toddler! So glad that you've had time to rejuvenate this week. Must make a change from the madness!!! Thanks for linking up today!

  6. Glad to read about someone slowing down, we so all need to do more of that!

  7. I love it when kids have such a great sleep! Mine sleep at all different times now, but sometimes, just maybe once a week they are all sleeping at the same time... and its bliss!

  8. A sleeping toddler is such a gift! Enjoy it while you can.
