I heart summer.

Summer days are so fulfilling.  We are so together.  And so busy.  And so consumed with life.  Yet everything is so relaxed.  I love it. 

We spent the much of the morning moving everything out of the upstairs, removing doors, and taping off vents.  B started sanding this afternoon and made it through the first sanding with little difficulty.  And, bless his heart, he's working upstairs in easily 100 degree temperatures.  But he looks so dang cute doing it :)

Since we're not unfamiliar with this whole remodel bit, we've actually become fairly tolerant of  displaced furniture and accessories that we have to accommodate for the duration of our renovations.  It actually creates some unique little spaces in our home that wouldn't exist otherwise.  And since it's only temporary, it's kinda charming.

The living room with the addition of the rocker from Becks' nursery and our cheapo Ikea mini-couch/sleeper which I'm comfortably blogging from right now :)

Our bedroom with the addition of Becks' dresser and his crib mattress.  He's all cozied up with us for the next couple of days on his little floor palette.

The view from my bed, accented with the doors from upstairs. 

Anyway, while B was sanding, Becks and I busied ourselves with finger painting, and it was about twelve kinds of fun. 

Apparently, sticking his tongue out is all part of the creative genius. 

Then, we carried our creativity outdoors where we blew bubbles and chalked up the driveway. 

Obviously, I enjoy chalking quite a bit.  Probably more than Becks.

And, for the record, here's our end-of-the-day-freshly-sanded-pine pics - or, proof that we're actually accomplishing something in a timely manner pics ;)

The End.

I have to agree 100%. I too, heart summer! Keep up the hard work on the house, it will pay off in the end. With my spare time this summer I hope to organize our house project pics from the past 2...yep T.W.O. years of hard word. But, I love my little house now!

Also, I love your idea of using the pie stand as a riser on your night are so clever!
