I like to write little stories for children in my spare time. Most of them are for my student lessons, but some are stories that I "plan" to illustrate and send to publishers (one day, like most things). One story in particular I have been working on intermittently for almost two years. I've begun the pencil sketches, and Husband has been playing with watercolors on my copies of my sketches.

It's a strange but fun spousal activity. Just call us Jan and Stan Berenstain! We plan to spend quite a few weekends this summer collaborating on this little project, so you'll be seeing more on the progress in future posts.
In other news, for the first time ever we've hung curtains. I've talked about hanging curtains in every house we've rented and this time we actually did it.
Don't they make a big difference in the room? And I love the white and wood tones together. It seems so rustically formal, and thus so casually elegant. (Though a professional interior designer might cringe at the simplicity!)
