This and that

These days I'm...
-learning how to comfort a sick and teething baby; bouncing,swaying, snuggling, gum rubbing
- sharing all nighters with a perfect teammate, exchanging knowing hugs and glances
- sleeping, needy babe in arms
- encouraged by daily liturgies
- rethinking blog design
- proudly posting beautiful artwork; energized by my students; collecting "junk" for new sculptures
- thankful for such wonderful work
- enjoying Downton Abbey dates
- settling into the dead of winter, trying not to get the blues
- straddling two churches, praying God's direction and wisdom for both
- planning paintings, soaking up inspiration
- thinking of Kimmie, praying for health and safely
- enduring my 3rd cold of the season; pounding tea, vitamin C and echinacea
- looking for a new knitting project
- bittersweetly buying baby cereal and putting off opening it (and kinda wanting him to stay little forever)
warding off worry; trying to live life in the moment.

What is filling your days?


  1. Beautiful post of simple life, with new(ish) baby. Cereal comes too fast. Love 'Downton Abbey'. Prayers for church peace. Be blessed.

    1. Thanks! I'm new to Downton Abbey, but all of the sudden I'm hearing about it all over the place!

  2. I just finished Season 1 of Downton Abbey!! So good! Are you onto Season 2 yet??? Hoping you are feeling better and getting some rest!

    1. Almost to season 2, can't wait! xo

  4. Hi Kerrie,
    I have been following your blog for a couple weeks. I love your site! It gives me so much inspirations and ideas, that now I'm thinking to open my own blog. The way, you approach "days of our life", is simple, yet beautiful. Your're great mom, wife and artist.


    1. Hi Radka, Thanks so much for the kind compliments! I'm so glad you are inspired, that's a lot of why I do it. :) You should totally start a blog. It's so fun and relaxing. :) Keep in touch, and let me know if you start your blog!

  5. If you ever want to beat the winter blahs by having a craft time together let me know! I'm spending my time reading, and exercising these days, and neglecting crafting a little bit too much.
