My gross lack of motivation stems from a pattern of issues with my work and a growing lack of passion for what I do. I am a little bit concerned by this, but after over 7 years of hard work and dedication, I have seen it makes no difference. People who do less work, are less involved and dedicated receive a paycheck all the same and don't have the stress and concern that I do. I can no longer give myself completely to my job and I think I will be better for it.
Anyway, most of last week I spent my evenings working on some very important projects. I could not post about them, as my most dedicated reader was the reciepient of these projects yesterday. I did not want to give away the surprise before the shower, so no posting. Now though, I am free to post my photos for the projects I was working on and the pictures from my friend Jenn's baby shower. The shower was yesterday in Dover and was lovely. I had a great time seeing Jenn (it's been over a year and a half since we've seen each other in person!) I also enjoyed talking with some of her family but mostly sharing in the excitement and anticipation of the birth of her first child. Henry Donald is due on September 9th and it is wonderful to see what a loving family he will be joining and how thrilled they are with his anticipated arrival.
So, here are my photos for the week.
|Diaper Pouch. I have a travel pack of wipes and 4 size 2 diapers in here. Snug, but big enough for what you need. It can be thrown in a purse, diaper bag or just taken on its own. Hopefully it comes in handy.|
|Inside view of the diaper pouch.|
|Decorative Pillow. I wanted to make a pillow, but for a baby? No. So I made a pillow anyway and attached a handle so it can be used as decoration. I really love this fabric.|
|Inside of the diaper bag. It has 4 inside pockets and the fabric inside coordinates with the exterior elephant fabric.|
|Outside view of the diaper bag. Each end has a bottle pocket and the handles match the interior fabric. It's approx. 15 long x 11 high x 3wide.|
|Lovely, glowing Jenn!! I love that monkey balloon and am so glad here theme for the baby's room is Jungle. I think that is such a fun theme!!|
|Jenn's level of reading. Just kidding. Jenn got several children's books for Henry's collection. Goodnight Moon is a great book.|
|A terrible (grainy, out of focus, poor lighting) picture of Jenn with my diaper bag. I don't know why I didn't pay attention that this didn't come out well. Too much gushing and talking probably.|
|Jenn with the afghan my Mom made. Love the color and it was sooooooo soft! My Mom is awesome.|
Now, don't expect to hear much from me this week either. I am having another 'procedure' on Tuesday and will be taking the day off from work (mandatory) and another day off afterwards to make sure I am completely recovered afterwards. (Last time things did not go as well as I'd hoped and well, I may have spent a brief hiatus at the ER making sure all was well. I KNOW that will not happen again but am being cautious and taking an extra day to be sure all is good before I return to work. It's not like I don't have the time to use!!!)
Best wishes for a lovely week.
