This and That
My husband celebrated his birthday this past week, it was a quiet affair. However there was a cheesecake slice (or two) for him and I bought ONE donut from the grocery store. I haven't had a donut for over a year. Lots of family called and wished him a 'happy birthday'. It was a nice day.
Last year I skipped decorating for Easter, I wasn't in the mood. This year I thought 'why not?'. Miss Holly loves to fish out an egg or two from the vase and bat them around the house. She is sneaky about it and sometimes I have to search around the house looking for the missing ones. (there is one missing as I sit and type this post)
On one of our walks I heard a robin! What a welcoming sound to hear. I'm witnessing every day the soft signs of winter leaving and spring pushing its way in. It begins with more daylight, birds singing and the melting of all that snow.
Frodo has decided that Spring has already sprung. He keeps trying to sit on his back yard stoop to survey his lands, only to come rushing in to sit beside me because he's too cold. The brilliant sunshine is throwing him off on how warm or cold it actually is. The forecast for next week will be over 50 degrees! Maybe the snow will be melted by then? Maybe we could grab a bagel sandwich and eat outside again? The possibilities are endless and I'm giddy thinking about them.
I've been journaling a lot these weeks and there seems no end in sight. I printed that photo above with a sprocket printer - the little photos are actually stickers and they add pizzazz to a journaling page. I continue to watercolor my daily haiku sketch illustrations. I also journal about memories or random thoughts.
I hope where ever you are you have sunshine and happiness. Thanks for visiting!
