See what's happening here


I don't think we'll be doing dandelion wine this year, we're not near as many dandelions this year. I think I should plant a patch of them!


Yay! The Husband got a clothesline built for me!



I know. I post a lot of flower pictures. And there are more to come. Not because I'm very good at taking them. Simply because it's Spring and that's what I'm noticing!

These blossoms are from the tree on the other side of our driveway. When it first bloomed I thought how nice it would be to have a couple in the backyard, maybe hang a hammock between them. When I went over to take the pictures, there was a LOUD hum of bees. The tree was swarmed with them. So, the tree, and it's pretty flowers can stay right on the other side of the driveway with it's bees. I'll find something else for the backyard!

What's this? Woodstove in mid-April? Oh yes. Our unseasonably warm weather ended and we were 'treated' to a couple cold, rainy, much more CNY like weather.


Super blurry, I know. But I had to post it. My goodness, he's such a mix of teenager and child right now (my oldest, Evan, in the back) his face says child to me still. I wonder if maybe it always will. But every day it seems his style, his mannerisms, his personality - more and more a teen.


The new mudroom color. I'm not loving it, at all. It's not so mustardy in real life - but close. I wanted more of a goldenrod/brown mustard. And the cream isn't the right shade of cream. It looks like a dirty laundromat. Blah.


Making progress. Sort of. It's sat like this for a weekish now!

Morning walk. I so love it here.


Can't believe how green it's gotten in the last week. Where the play set and fort are going.

one hundred!


Kevin said I wouldn't be able to capture how foggy it was on camera. I still tried. He was right. It was thick that morning!



first spring flower!

My husbands band, Boots N Shorts

I don't know what setting my camera was on half the night, but it was obviously all wrong (and I was um, slightly tipsy and couldn't be bothered to fix it)

Anyway, there's still something I really like about this picture.

(that's me in the black shirt and skirt. The skirt was a  3 dollar thrift store find, and perfect for the unseasonably warm evening!)


It was in the 80's this weekend (almost 90 on Friday!). Perfect for some grilling!


Colin had a play at school, the nanny goats gruff. I was honestly really amazed at how good it was for first graders. It was obvious how much time and effort was placed into it. No good pictures of the play - it was dark and we were in the back, this was just after.




Seems Sunday is becoming my catch-up day. I'd really like to try getting back to posting daily.
