Welcome weekend

With the addition of this rain barrel, we are all set for the rainy days ahead.

Other welcome additions from the neighborhood yard sale - Krypto, egg cups - (we've been looking for some!) and this cool webbing, used for lawn chairs. The colors match Viv's room. Don't know what we'll use for but just couldn't pass up.

And, someone is digging in our dirt - squirrels or rabbits. I am more than a bit annoyed.

Trying to protect the seedlings that have emerged with toilet paper rolls. I think chicken wire might be our next step.

Gingham happy

Inspired by Farm Chicks, I recovered this wooden desk top with a vinyl (flannel back). Now the kids can draw all they want. This desk was a freebie find at a garage sale last summer in Ohio. We found a perfect nook, with a perfect view for inspiration.

This fabric was leftover from our backsplash in our old house. Seeing this picture makes me miss that house.

My babies grow

One baby is at school. Registered for Kindergarten last week. I don't think I am ready. He is.

My other baby has entered the tantrum zone.

Meet my newest babies.

seedlings grow

The kids refer to them as such. Now, I do too. Some seedlings under grow light. Parsley is already in ground. I am cautiously optimistic about the raised beds. In celebration of Earth Day, we're picking up a rain barrel this weekend - yeah! Need to think of plan b - to keep squirrels and rabbits out of the beds.

Allergies beware

Spring has exploded in our home.

Once we're there, we do headstands with a tree backdrop.

No excuses

I won't, although I feel the need of saying why I haven't been around.

I've been swirling, sometimes at too fast of a pace. But all is good, each step. I am reminded to slow down and watch the lovely around.
