Early Spring Views

It's greening up out there and the light is changing.  Both of these pictures are evidence of it.  For now, early Spring is warm and we have been living it up, to exhausting levels.  I've put three loads of laundry on the line so far and have started eyeing forecasts again so I can do more.  Winter's salt and dirt is being swept away and the freshness of Spring (and the manure smells from nearby farms) is drifting through the air.

Sidewalk Chalk

The weather is turning today, with a chance of rain, and by the end of the week, a chance of snow.  Just in time for the maple festival.  Mike's middle sister (meaning that she is the middle child) is coming this weekend and I have some activities planned that will keep us busy inside, including our own attempt at making maple candy.

Washing Play Cloths

I had the children wash the play cloths yesterday.  I'm not sure it was necessary, but it thrilled them so to do it.  We've been watching some wonderful kindergarten videos, which have inspired them (and me!).  We're working our way into our warm-weather rhythm with more time outside, daily walks, and more frequent hikes.  My focus has been on them and our home, so I've been present there instead of here.  I've been working really hard to get out some major clutter (I know, the running joke) so that the basement is more open and I've finally gotten to a good spot.  I've sent out half a dozen big bags of trash and twice that to the local thrift store.  It feels really good to see it all go, like an energy cleansing for our home, and I am hopeful for the months ahead.

That's an interesting thought. The school is in Spain and it's possible their policies are different. Some people seem to take them home guidelines very seriously and others do not. Home is all we have here. ;-) I noticed that their shoes seemed to be much more sturdy than ones commonly available here, since they could scrub them with stiff brushes.

That little bonnet was mine when I was little and I guess it was my mother's. We have several and that one is the favorite. I need to find a straw hat for Roan like Almanzo in Farmer Boy.

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
