looking for greenness, finding beauty...

It seems lately that my schedule has become something like... work all day for four days in a row, and then have three days off. Three long, wonderful days. Enjoyed. Appreciated. Full of lots of good things like family story times, sewing, cooking lots of good food, being outside!

When I finished working this afternoon I ran outside as quickly as I could, joining Jason and the girls who had been out there all day long. I was determined to find some greenness in our slowly wakening landscape...

I would say that the clover is probably the greenest thing out there at the moment. How happy I am that we have this everywhere!

And our little seasonal creek has quite a bit of greenness in it too.

The creek is most certainly one of my favorite parts about spring here. To hear the sound of that water flowing over the rocks! I grew up near oceans and rivers. I miss them so very much. This little creek makes me very very happy.

I visited our hawthorn and saw that though still tiny, it's buds are so full of color, the green trying to come out. Not that you can see it well in this blurry picture, still I liked it, love our hawthorns!

Love this child...

who really is blooming herself.

And this little one, who is becoming a little less little.



These two sweet girls, who make our world so much more beautiful every day.

Wishing you all a weekend full of beauty and love!

I also get so excited for green in the spring- even little bits here and there make me happy!
Asa came over and asked me if Chloe is Ella! She really does remind me of my Ella. :)

Hey there!

I remember you putting up a diaper link somewhere a bit ago. Do you still sell cloth diapers? I'm looking for good-quality, simple prefolds. If so, is there a way to purchase a sample?

Thanks,
Cadi
