challenging day

it has been a particularly challenging day today. with very short notice our land lord is demoing our bathroom to replace a moldy ceiling. it is going to take a few days wherein we will be in and out of the house to avoid dust and contractors. eliot managed to spike a 102 fever today to add to the mix. the poor guy is in good spirits, i think it is related to the teething. i wasnt feeling well last night either so my mother was kind enough to come over and keep eliot entertained while i lay on the couch and complained.

so, not much crafting done and it will, very likely, be a little sparse with the posting over here for a few days. this has spurred on more conversation about buying a house rather than continue renting in other peoples houses.

i did find some nice poems in eliot's children's books this evening.. here is one i particularly liked:

Sweet and Low

Sweet and low, sweet and low
Wind of the western sea,
Low, low, breathe and blow,
Wind of the western sea,
Over the rolling waters go,
Come from the dying moon, and blow,
Blow him again to me;
While my little one, while my pretty one, sleeps.
Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Oh that is so annoying about the contractors in the bathroom! Poor eliot with the fever - I hope he gets his teeth through soon! ANd I hope you are feeling better as well! Maybe next week will be better!
