All is Quiet on the Home Front...

Wow! What a difference one nine-year-old can make!

j has gone to visit Gram amd Popa for a few days. It's so unusually quiet around here. G doesn't know what to do with himself...and neither do I. He walked around today looking for j, saying "Knock, Knock." (It's a thing they do. G says "Knock, knock." j says "who's there?" G says "me, Bubba." It's very cute.) But today, j wasn't here to answer.

It was quiet.
We only had 2 small messes to clean up.
I actually got the laundry done.
There was only one bath given today. (Usually the minimum is 3.)
No one whined at me.
G took a 3 hour nap.
I scrapped during his nap. (See card and layout below.)
It was so darn quiet.

G found a photo of j in my junk photo bin. He toted it around much of the day. I really feel for him because he probably doesn't understand that Bubba will be home in a few days and he's having a blast at Gram's.

All in all, it was a very different day.

I found this scrap of purple-ish embroidered paper in my scraps. I've had it forever. Today, I was determined to use it and here's the result. I think I might try to do a "use-one-scrap-a-day" challenge to myself.

That is so pretty! I might have to try to do the "use a scrap a day" thing...it could keep me going forever!

Cute! I love your challenge idea! I need to challenge myself to scrapbook at least once a month. LOL That'd be better than what I'm doing now! Ugh!
