I’ve been spinning some yarn lately.
Spring came here so early that I didn’t even have a chance to wish away rain but I’m looking forward to having garden full of veggies and fruits this summer! I’m most excited about Japanese pear tree is flowering.
Lucian loves the kale that survived winter, he also sang a song at the dormant artichoke so that it’ll comeback this year — hilarious!
Post breakfast scene on a lazy sunday. We should have more slow days like this.
Our neighbor gave us all this firewood! We had meant to get a cord (…or half) of wood for the winter since we love making fire for warmth but never got around to it and had been getting tiny over-priced bundles at grocery store — I’m overjoyed! Some of the tree stumps that haven’t been split yet, I’m thinking of making stools/side-table with them.
We’ve had ridiculously splendid weather here this ‘winter’ and I’ve been watching out for an extra nice day we can take some time off to go to the coast. And there it was, blue sky 70F day on the beach. Some people were wearing jackets (surely unable to believe how warm it actually was) and others were in bathing suit swimming in the ocean (brave souls, I’m certain the water was cold).
Ashland made this for me at school. “I love you because you give me jam sandwiches” …Jam Sandwiches?? Of all things! So I just wanted to clarify to the world in general that I also make Chicken & Dumpling soup [his favorite, or so I thought!] from scratch (takes 3+ hours) pretty much every week. And less frequently but also pizza, made from homemade dough. And we take him on many amazing adventures. And we recently bought him wii u!! But nope, he loves me for jam sandwiches.
Here’s all the candies I confiscated from kids’ valentine loot from school. Sheesh, it’s worse than halloween. They already ate a few before I had the chance to grab the rest. I told them they can have ONE tomorrow, maybe.
Speaking of silly kids, Lucian said the funniest thing the other day it still makes me laugh. He said:
“But Mama, dragons have no lips!”
I had to think about it for a second, but he’s totally right, Dragons have no lips. I never thought of it that way. But since he uttered those words I keep seeing lipless dragon faces in my mind’s eye and makes me laugh during the day and creeps me out in the dark at night. Seriously this kid, he is full of hilariously senseless truisms.
