hello and goodbye

A fitting title since my first post this month comes almost at the end of February. I am slow time of year, as I make my way through what I hope is the end of winter. Not that it was a bad one; our winter has been unseasonably warm this year, even kibboshing all attemps at an ice rink on the lake as customary for us. Still, I find myself day dreaming of gardening, beacheswarm sunshine on my skin, ahhh!

For now we keep ourselves busy with:


tea party it is

minecraft hour

6:52 SP

kale ready for dehydration

when getting married, a sock will suffice for a tie

~ posies: something special to spice up a little something I made this past fall

~ tea parties: now that they are reading & writing, little notes are given to me with special requests <3

~ minecraft: because this mumma caves & gives them techie time

~ doggy cuddles: because the theme for SPFebruary is with something you love

~ kale goodness: dehydrated for chips, in smoothies, lasagna, soup - as many ways as possible.

~ impromptu weddings: since my niece recently became engaged, the talk at the table & the play has been all things weddings. Here she is a flower girl & this summer my girlies will be her flower girls :)

~ thank you iPhone for helping me capture a little bit of each day ~ 


  1. Oh, oh, I find myself looking a lot at summer photos, dreaming of days at the cottage beach, planning where and what we are planting this coming year....with all this puffy snow this week, I should be capturing these moments...even the kids have been saying, 'can we go to the cottage' - ah, ya, it'll be absolutely freezing!

  2. With this early spring I think your dreams of beaches & plantings will soon be a reality.
    The snow came furiously but has left so quickly instant spring in March?? - pinch me I must be dreaming!
