This was my first week as a SAHM again. (I haven't stayed home for 2 years) I didn't think it would be so weird to stay at home again, b/c the whole time I was working I was yearning to stay at home and be a full time momma. I'm enjoying it even though it's taking some adjustments. I can already see the beady changing. She is a typical 3 year old, don't get me wrong but she was having some problems with attitude and whining and peeing in her pants. We still have some whining going on but for the most part things are looking better. Of course I'm more relaxed and since I'm the Momma, I'm the thermostat of the home, that's a good thing. I'm exited since I get to make a cappuccino and do my devos in the mornings. It's the best way to wake up and start the day.
Luckily this week has been nice out so we've played
outside and had the windows open letting in clean/fresh air. The other day while we were playing outside I was fooling around with my camera, and I found a few features I'd never noticed before. There's this button called SCN and under that is a few settings. I can change it to Sepia tones right on the camera, also black and white etc. I snapped this photo of the bead in the sepia tones and didn't even have to do any editing on my photo program. pretty cool. it also has a setting for fireworks, playing outside, back light etc. For this sandbox photo I used the "beach" setting. it's for really bright photos. I guess it's always the small things that excite me. Btw, sandboxes are wonderful, esp the covered kind. The girls will play in the sand for hours! being covered we don't have to worry about any stray cats using it for a litter box.
Speaking of cat's mine are strange, they're silly actually. When the bub gets home her backpack almost never gets hung up like it should be. and they always fight over who gets to lay on it. I snapped this photo b/c I thought Simba looked funny laying on the bag with the straps on.. what a silly cat he is.
I also finally finished my Secret prayer swap socks. I mailed them Tuesday or Wednesday (I forget) I haven't heard if my swapee got them yet. I'm anxious and I really hope she likes them and they fit. I made up the pattern myself so it took me a little longer to finish them b/c I took notes. I also included in the box a book by Max Lucado, some postcards, the sock yarn I'd originally started with and that sock bag I made. It was a fun swap, I want to do the next one but it starts around the same time as Sock Wars 3 so I'm sitting the next one out. there are more photos over at flickr and ravelry.
well I've got to get ready, I'm going to sit and knit at 1PM.

Congrats on being a SAHM again!! Glad to hear all the kinks are getting worked out too. I know it was an adjustment when I had to move home with my office stuff and I don't even have any kids! LOL

Being a SAHM is a wonderful gift you give your daughter and yourself (the cats, who knows?). Don't you love how cameras have all those little secret settings? I never can remember what setting I need when I'm in a hurry, though, and I've just got the most basic of point and shoots!
