After announcing he is going to take Mr. C for a boat ride and that I can have a break, Mr. K is all smiles upon hearing me reply with “can I come too?” Looking back from the nice seat offered to me I see Mr. K happily sitting on the floor of the canoe [...]

how many years now?

*smirk* Come on, aren’t we sweet? With just the most innocent PDA. (I am a church girl for heaven’s sake. Emphasis here on girl—and I suppose church too.) I love you Mr. K. Still like you too. Happy anniversary. — Illustration inspired by a string of lots and lots of gold and aqua moments with [...]

dboy’s turn to teen.

This afternoon I say, “hey birthday boy! Can I take some pictures of you in the backyard?” “Sure mom.” We then hear the little blond’s raspy voice, “yes! owside! let’s GO!!!” This is sounding familiar to me.

looking forward –

Did you just crack a smile? Or maybe a little smirk?? Me too! There are things—moments and afternoons and evenings—to look forward to. We get to move toward the longer days, and the higher temps. I am in. I am in for all of it. Had some fun scribbling and doodling on this rainy Sunday [...]

maybe a little…

Not crazy. Just tired. Sure you might feel crazy—you might be acting crazy—have the character down pat both on and off screen—but it’s only the being tired part that is to blame. Being tired is crazy making. I have a little bit of experience in this area and it feels good to say it all [...]

happy may!

Very happy! Truly. It actually feels like May today and I officially say welcome! Join us— you may even stay awhile as far as I’m concerned. Let us linger in your loveliness. Your 60′s never felt so good after this down and out dreary April. And I’d take any 70′s you have up your sleeve [...]

while you wait.

To quote Julie’s words, “forecast: 100% chance of depressing.” That’s been the deal outside and women all week that I have talked to have echoed this how-low-can-we-go kind of attitude. If you are feeling out of sorts, you’re not alone. I have reached my tipping point today. And I am not subscribing for a single [...]

a spring shower—

in honor of heath’s flower. Smile! The goal on my mind: a fresh-life-filled April shower. That’s easy (and easier with a few kind offers to bring something! thanks again dears!!) with some smiling faces around any room—then add to that a to die for pregnant tummy and basically we all-for-one-and-one-for-all shifted into spring gear right [...]
