[this week]

Today was superhero day at Sienna’s school. She was little bit late for school due to me painting her face but I think it was worth it. The cutest superhero ever!

Flocks of birds (these ones were Bohemian Waxwings) – a sure sign of spring. I think it's finally spring as it was +18C today and most of the snow is gone. First playground day. Yey!

My new baby. Wish me luck for keeping it alive. I need it. ;)
Plus a cute little ceramic bird house to hang in our tree.

I love it when yet another renovation project gets done. This week it was front & back entrance tiles. What a mess it’s been (I took these photos to prove it) but so worth it when it’s all done. My back is kaput from all the floor cleaning (the grout haze is so hard to get off!) but I’m all smiles as I walk on the tiles now. I’ll try to remember to post a photo of clean tiles later. I love the tile we picked.

[need a new exercise routine?]

This video shows Oona Kivelä, who has won The World Pole Dancing Championship twice, doing her exercises.

I only do this routine on the second Tuesday of every month as it's not that challenging anymore. Hahaa! J

Kumi Yamashita made this portrait on wooden panel with nails and a single, unbroken sewing thread. All I can say is “wow!”.

[free printables]

I’m stuck at home waiting for a tile guy to show up to do our front and back entrance tiles. He’s already two hours late. Hmm, we’ll most likely need to find a new guy. Frustrating. What a way to run a business, hey?

While waiting, I made these journaling cards by hand. I tried to scan them but they didn't look good scanned. These are not hard to make though. Print the card outlines only and then use a thin permanent marker to doodle some simple flowers.

Here are some free printables with some quotes I've seen lately.

Happy Monday everyone!

("As you wish" of course comes from the movie Princess Bride and means "I love you.")
