Right now, I am...
:: listening to the heavy pitter-patter of rain on the roof.
:: sighing with relief at the welcome water that is so much needed around here.
:: hoping I brought in the laundry off the line last night. I did, right? I think I did.
:: feeling grateful for a weekend full of entertaining friends, both impromptu gatherings and planned ones alike.
:: seeing green and yellow everywhere.
:: noticing the lily of the valley outside my studio door is close to blooming. They were my grandmother's favorite, always in bloom on her May birthday.
:: wondering just how it could be that my baby girl will be celebrating her first birthday this May, just a few weeks from now.
:: dreaming up some special plans to celebrate her young sweetness.
:: loving that it's sunhat season, and skirt season, and outside entertaining season. Love, love, love.
:: thinking that jumping lambs is one of the most fabulous things in all the world. Though their baby "baaas" are pretty spectacular too.
:: promising you another peek of Charlotte and Anne soon.
:: smelling coffee coming from the kitchen, mixed with a hint of the oatmeal that was the first word and request out of Harper's mouth when he woke up this morning.
:: anticipating a phone call letting me know that a certain buzzy box is ready to be picked up.
:: waiting for some friends to arrive to play today.
:: feeling the pull of the blazing woodstove, babies curled up with books and sheepskins, and my pile of knitting nearby it. Yes.
:: wishing you, as always, a lovely start to your own week!
