All of this sweet, golden sunshiny weather has been such a treat for us this year!
Outside my window, many things are blossoming that we normally don't see until much later in the spring.
Yesterday, my honeysuckle bush was buzzing with all sorts of bees circling around it. Makes me wonder if we'll have another bumblebee nest under our deck this year.
I'm thinking about paint colors for my kitchen.
It's been almost six years since we painted last...and it's time for my walls to get a fresh new coat.
I'd really like to brighten things up a bit with a light, warm, springtime hue.....although it is hard to choose. :)
I have it narrowed down to these two colors, and I think I know which one I'll pick...
It's hard to tell from the photo, but one is a buttery yellow, and the other more of a light, creamy cinnamon.
What do you think?
I am thankful:
For warm sunshine to sweeten our laundry after yet another round of the flu.
For these little makeshift clotheslines that, somehow, seem to make mountains of laundry quietly melt into neat little piles.
For the quiet simplicity it brings to our days.
In the kitchen, it's cabbage season. :)
Everyone in my family loves this vegetable, and I've been experimenting with some new recipes (along with our old favorites).
Today I'll be making my first batch of sauerkraut...I'll let you know if it goes well!
sewing lessons for Rose . . . a few more Alphabet Time units for Little Monkey . . . some handmade lovelies for Mother's Day . . . and, I'm hoping, one more ruffley apron from some vintage-looking fabric I found at a garage sale. :)
I am reading...
In the schoolroom, things are back on the regular schedule, after a long spring break/flu break.
This week, we're moving on to the letter "E" in Alphabet Time....General and Rose are working hard on finishing up a few of their subjects...and I'm thinking about a few fun units I'd like to work on with everyone over the summer ~ for history and studying the States.
Around the house, there is still much cleaning to be done!
This week I hope to bring some order and simplicity to my craft stash. I need to weed out a lot of things, and maybe even set up a little "spot" where Rose & I can work on our spring/summer sewing projects. We'll see!
One of my favorite things...sweet baby kisses.
I'll be getting as many as I can of these, this week, since my "Baby" will be turning 2 this weekend!
After that, I am pretty certain I will no longer be able to get away with calling this growing boy a baby :)
A peek into my day:
We had such warm weather a few weeks back! On this particular morning, Peanut woke up, made a beeline for his sandals, and asked to go straight out to the sandbox, jammies and all. :)
