between raindrops

Today was mostly rainy and grey, but we headed out to the local garden center’s spring open house. Last summer, we stumbled upon the most amazing garden center just a few miles from our house. Although finding Ted Lare was a happy accident, it quickly became our favorite place for plants, rocks, fun garden art, … Continue reading

signs of life

Let’s ignore the serious lack of life on this blog (ahem) and focus on the loveliness outside. Tonight after I put Bubba to bed, I ventured out with my camera to capture spring at my house. This is only our second spring in this house, and last year things were buried under years of neglect … Continue reading

Ever want to lose an entire week of your life? Spend some time with a sick baby. Ugh. Bubba is currently on his second round of meds for his sixth ear infection in as many months. The soonest the ENT could get us in to talk tubes was two weeks from now. Ugh. So, yeah. … Continue reading

Not very springlike, they complained. Why can’t it be warm? they whined. I ignored them. I called my dad to swap excited … Continue reading

It has rained all day today. A wonderful, slow, soaking rain. For hours. I love me some thunderstorms. Especially when it’s too cool for nasty weather and I can just enjoy the white flash of lightning followed by the rumbling thunder. Love. It was chilly and gray and gloomy today. And after 12 hours of … Continue reading

This little guy is probably six inches taller after today’s 70-degree sunshine. I have to apologize for the inconsistent posting. After 9 hours staring at a computer at work, I’m struggling to find the oomph to come home and stare at a computer for another hour or two. Thanks for reading!

tulips, take two

tulips, take two

A new week means new tulips for moi. As long as things are crazy and stressful at work, I will have tulips on my desk. It’s just necessary right now. There’s just something calming and joyful about flowers, particularly tulips. This week’s bunch appeared to be a lively purple, but this morning, when I got … Continue reading
