Spring Photos.

Things with the house reorganizing are coming along every so slowly doing it mostly by myself. Yesterday I reorganized all the boxes in the POD outside and brought in 95% of the toys.  They’re semi-organized in our old bedroom, the new playroom/office.  I got completely worn out and sore after moving all those boxes.  I’ve been too tired to do any more today! I managed to take the girls outside earlier to check out signs of spring.  We also potted some...

Spring Tease & The Mouse.

We have a mouse in our house!  This has never happened before here. It came in the dryer vent hole, stole my collection of saved garden seeds, and made a nice nest behind the dryer in the corner.  I saw no signs of it and had no idea it was there until our dryer broke and we got it repaired the other day.  When we pulled out the dryer, there was the evidence! I wondered why my cats had taken to...

Tufted Titmouse.

 I took Ada back to the doctor today. Her throat is still infected, worse than before.  We had to miss homeschool co-op because she was awake all night with a fever yet again. Rosie is as grumpy as she’s probably ever been in her life!  Her nose is still stuffy, which is unusual for her.  Must be an extra crappy cold. Ada still acts cheerful, despite being sick and never sleeping. Here she is on her bird watching perch this morning....

Sad.

I don’t know what’s wrong with me.  I feel sad lately.  Weary. Depressed maybe? I want to be pregnant SO BADLY.  Yet I’m not.  Everyone else I know is pregnant or just had a baby.  Even my best friend is pregnant now.  I am overjoyed for her.  I love talking about pregnancy with her.  I am extremely excited to find out if her baby is a boy or a girl, what the baby’s name will be, the baby’s personality, everything.  I just wish I could shut off...

Sight. (A day at the creek.)

Today it felt like summer outside. I love summer.  I love being outside.  Summer weather makes me happy, even when I’m sweating in the blazing sun. I’ve been looking forward to this summer because Ada is an outdoors girl.  Rosie, well she isn’t…she doesn’t like bugs, or dirt, or anything like that. Last year in the spring we went on a guided hike up a creek nearby and Rosie sobbed the entire time.  Today we went back to the same creek to play. ...

I’m sitting in my freezing cold house surrounded by half folded piles of clean laundry and random toys.  The heat was turned off and the windows were left open, so it’s a chipper 60 degrees in here this morning. We had oatmeal raisin chocolate chip cookies for breakfast because the chickens have temporarily stopped laying eggs. The girls are playing with dolls on the floor in mismatched pajamas while we listen to The Civil Wars. Next up, a Queen dance party…...
