Yesterday was such a gift. I know, every single day is a gift, made by God. But yesterday went so well, so smoothly, was one of those “this is what I pictured” sort of days — and we haven’t had one of those since… well, October. I started feeling lousy, life was busier than anticipated… Continue reading a normal day!
We woke to our first real snow this morning. I forgot how beautiful the white is, how blue the sky seems in contrast, how much light it reflects when the sun decides to make an appearance, and how instantly cozy your house feels. By mid-morning I was walking down the drive to start a fire… Continue reading mid-November
Mondays can feel rough around here. I know, you’re thinking, “Aren’t they for everyone?”, and I guess I’m the minority. I love Mondays. Just like I love September and January and the beginning of summer and my birthday, I love Mondays because they feel like a fresh start. I love schedules and the comfortability of… Continue reading A Monday
My goodness, this week! Full of Autumn goodness. Full of emotion. Full of the goodness of God. Full of prayers whispered. Full, full, full. We finally got around to picking a few apples from our bountiful trees rather than letting them all fall for the deer to enjoy. One large pot of applesauce made, bagged,… Continue reading a week in September
And so begins the slow goodbye to summer days. I know, we technically have a few more weeks left of summer and temperatures are still quite warm and we’re squeezing in every summertime activity that we can (hello, splashing in the brook and afternoons of fun with hoses and ice cream because why not and endless play… Continue reading hi, new season
It’s a rainy Tuesday. After packing a lunch and making my husband’s veggies and eggs for breakfast, I joined him on our front porch as we sat silently together in the midst of a thunder and lightning storm. It is surprisingly dark at 6am when there are storm clouds above you. The storm has moved… Continue reading summertime update
Hi, you three. We had our first beach outing today. I would be perfectly happy to never leave the comfortable spot we call home, but you — well, mainly you, Adrian — encourage and are a good reminder that going can be special. And it’s not always just the being wherever it is you’re going. It’s the preparation,… Continue reading to my three
Yesterday you two got into a fight over who should push the Power button on the TV remote control. You also decided to irritate each other during our table time as you colored pictures for me on one end and I folded clothes on the other. During those squabbles, I found myself inwardly sighing, reminding myself that… Continue reading Just To Remember
I go through my early morning routine today feeling a bit in a fog. I had one of those longer nights that come with babies. I kiss Josiah goodbye at the door and feel a bit of the cold fresh air and hear birds singing their songs. It’s too cold for that, isn’t it? Too… Continue reading Spring Is In The Air
Oh dear. So much for my fresh desire to write more. It’s been a month since I pushed publish. (And if this is my form of baby books, a family scrapbook, and photo album of sorts — well, I need to start doing a better job at being consistent!) And what a month it’s been! A gift… Continue reading March!
