Last night was a leisurely evening, and I suddenly realized that in a very short amount of time, I will not be able to relax as soon as Anna Ruth goes to bed. I will have another child to care for who will need to be fed and changed and held even after we get the energetic almost-three-year-old off to sleep. I decided to cherish those few hours and did something I haven't done in a while--color. Yes, you read that right; one of my favorite things to do to chill and relax is color in my adult coloring books. That may sound a little off-color (pun intended), but it's not what it sounds like. I have two coloring books with really neat 3-D designs and archi-scapes, and they are so much fun to color with colored pencils.
Here are some examples of my creations:
The only things that could have made the evening a little better are a glass of wine and an electric pencil sharpener.
