Idleness? ~ Theme Thursday

I laughed out loud when I saw that this week’s Theme Thursday was idleness. Dear, sweet Stacy – so optimistically suggested that we find some idleness to shoot this week.

It is so not happening around our place this week, much to my chagrin. Poor J., when he walks through the door each evening – he doesn’t know whether he is going to get a completely wasted, staring off into space, brain-dead wife, or one in tears. It has not been one of my finer weeks, for sure.

So I went to the archives. These photos were from the week of Ad’s birthday. I caught her in a moment of idleness, just off in her own little world.


Sweet cheeks

Just takin' a moment

Her new puppy, bear, blankie, favorite sundress, and a fresh Ariel tattoo. Just lying in the sun. So gorgeous.

This week has been a little “Addie-heavy,” I know. Perhaps I am subconsciously trying to make up for the “car door to the middle of her poor forehead” incident. But that is a story for another day when I have a little more energy to deal with it, and maybe a touch more of that elusive idleness.

    You can’t leave us hangin like that. What did you do to your poor girl? She looks as beautiful as ever. Lovely light shining down on her face.

    Poor husband’s, they really need to call first before coming through the door to check the mood status of the home. I think that was on the fine print of the marriage license.

    Oh no! Sorry to hear that your week has been less than stellar. I hope it gets better from here. Lovely shots of Addie, of course. 🙂

    That last shot is so sweet. I love her “idle” look laying on the bed with a blanket. Very sweet, and I so love her curls. 🙂

    I love that last shot too. Very idle indeed. I hope your little girl is ok.

    I totally love the last one. She definitely looks at rest , but deep in thought. I couldn’t post a photo of my 2 year old because like all toddler he doesn’t have and idle bone in his body. I opted for the 5 month old sleeping who isn’t mobile yet LOL!

    All I can say is… just perfect.

    Sweet pictures as always. Must be the door in the forehead incident tied in with the rough afternoon.

    Such a sweet little moment! I’m sorry for the rough week…it’s looking back on moments like this that help get us through the hard times. Here’s to a better tomorrow!

    Sorry to hear that there hasn’t been any easy times at your house this week — maybe next week will be better? I’ll keep my fingers crossed!

    She might be a little…trying…at times, but she sure is adorable!

    Hope the weekend was better. Gorgeous shots of her. We’ve been busy around here which caused me to go into idle-mode.

    I share your frenzied, frazzledness although hopefully it is getting better now. I am so far behind on my blog reading and posting…….
    I once walked the BA into a door frame when she was a babe in arms. She seems to have survived.

    The last photo is so sweet. I would really like some idle times too…please!!! 🙂
