how are you this fine day? i'm actually thinking of leaving you. you might think it's because i rarely blog anymore, but really, i have some ideas brewing in my head. i think it might be time to move on. the economy - it sucks, you know. i'm sure that there are others who have moved along their merry way. (shhhh... i even bought a new domain name, and i know i can take it somewhere else for a lot less money every month.) change is hard, but necessary to move forward sometimes. so many ideas... keep an eye out to see where i land.... ;)
in the meantime, look! i actually scrapped! i was waiting ever so patiently since CHA for the girls paperie to arrive in stores. imagine my glee when i walked into scrapbook oasis this weekend and there it was. and voila! i got out my slice and my sewing machine and had some fun.
note to self...in the future, sewing in circles on multiple layers of cardstock might not be your wisest move. but i like how it turned out. something different...
so nice to see my boy out having fun with his friends. it felt like summer this past weekend, so it was a great day for a bike ride. the rain that has been drenching us this winter is allegedly on its way back today... i can't wait! i have loved having "weather" this year. the hills are so green and there are wildflowers everywhere. love the poppies and lupine cropping up along the sides of the roads and on the hillsides. oh, and the $1.29 daffodils at trader joe's. now that is true love! xo
another sign that spring is here... look what we have right next to our front door.
these are not the best pictures but if you look closely, it's a little mommy hummingbird!! little eggs about the size of a jelly belly. she's the cutest thing - brave and protective. i can't wait until these babies hatch - i love that birds flock to our house to nest. every year, we have one or two. i guess they feel safe here. i can just sit on the patio and watch the bird community go about their business. the crazy neighbor has a huge (overgrown) tree that they love. it's like my own little nature sanctuary in the middle of suburbia.
countdown to easter break is on - two more days of school and we are FREEEEEE!!! i love school vacations! and after that, i have a grown-up vacation planned. in two weeks, you can find me here, perhaps sipping on some tea or exploring a garden or two.
april is going to be a good month! ;)
