There is asparagus growing in the front yard
Ollie is very hefty! 6 months old and 20 pounds (: I make good, sturdy babies!
I made this play tipi one day on a whim, out of vintage sheets. A fun place to hang out (:
This amazing drawing is of ME! Drawn by Jude who is 2 years old!!
...and here I am again! Hahaha I love my fat face (:
What I do all day, every day. My back, arms and shoulders are getting remarkably strong.
Jude really took to sewing on this, my 'second' machine. I took out the needle and he had a blast 'sewing' a piece of fabric. It actually moved through so of course he was delighted (:
Look! Underwear! Jude has started the great potty-training journey. Whew! What adventures, I must say!
A special regular visitor to the feeder outside the kitchen window. How I love these sweet and tiny magical beings!
My studio! I haven't done much in there yet; just whipped up that play tipi, but I can't wait to sew some more. I really do love sewing. It's so much fun, and cathartic. My cheeks are always rosy afterwards so I know it's good for me!
And here is one of our newest gardens. Jason has been so dedicated to creating, digging, planting and beautifying that we now have a bunch of lovely gardens around the property for vegetables, herbs and flowers. When we first moved here it was a bit overwhelming to look around at all that needed to be done, but now it is coming along so wonderfully! I love our home so much.
I saw her fall over in her cage when I was sitting with Jude on the couch and immediately rushed over, only to see her gasping for air and unable to get up. I scooped her up, walked outside and sat in the grass with her on a beautiful sunny afternoon. I held her like a baby and she died in my arms, looking right into my eyes. She was a gentle, loving, peaceful being and we all miss her, but we're so glad that she was in our lives for the time that she was (:
