Sebastian obviously doesn't understand the 'gain an extra hour of sleep' concept because he's been waking up at obscenely early hours these last two mornings. We kept him up an extra hour thinking that might buy us an hour in the morning like it used to but the boy is the perkiest thing I've ever seen at 5:45 a.m. I doubt even my mother would recognize me with these puffy eyes and bad hair. Thankfully, my lovely husband has taken the boy to get his coffee markout for the week so we can all be civil this morning.
My mom rejoiced a little when the ducks were taken to the duck farm to graze and poop wherever they like other than our backyard. They were starting to loose their down and get their white feathers so the term 'Ugly Duckling' may have been applicable soon. They were sweet and Sebastian loved to check on them and make sure they were staying in their box. He asked where they were when he woke up from his nap yesterday and we took him outside to show him that they had gone 'ByeBye'. He recovers quickly. Here's a little video we shot from a week ago. Its a little long but if you scroll to 1:15, you can watch as I gracefully chase down the ducks.
I've been making some craft tutorial videos for a friend's site that is launching in February and whipped up this scarf for one of them. I'll be posting the tutorial on the Red Velvet Blog later this week. I also did a fun 'point, shoot and hope for the best' self-portrait session. Thanks for reading! Oh, and my new banner includes the fabulous bag that Leigh Anne from Freckled Nest made for me. Check her out, she's got a lot going on over there!
