At his house, they are coloring Easter eggs today. It's a good day for it - there's a blizzard outside!
Easter is coming! The bunny's at the mall and Jeff was surprised that James wanted to say hello to him! Cheese!
James has been taking trips out and about with his parents. Are you cold in there, James?
We've had some amazing moons lately!
I'd say Henry is adjusting just fine to his new home, don't you think so?
We are having a whopper of a spring blizzard today!And this snowy morning I found this adorable photo of our four kids taken on a snow day long ago!
My mom sent me another two boxes full of my grandma's diaries and I have been reading and reading and reading. She kept a diary every day until she could no longer write. I find her words fascinating. I think her daily entries speak of the beauty of order and they remind me that the rhythms of everyday life matter.
She lost her husband when my mom was just fourteen years old and she had a two year old at the time. She recorded every penny she spent, every time she changed the sheets on her bed, the weather, and each small occurrence as well as some heartbreaking experiences. My mom says that she was a fantastic mother, the kind of mother everyone should have. She faithfully loved her children and grandchildren. She was sort of shy so every person that was kind to her found their way into her daily jottings. It makes me realize that paying attention to others and letting them know they are in my heart and on my mind is EXTREMELY essential. I am so glad that I have journaled for most of my life. Someday one of my granddaughters might want to pour over my everyday thoughts.
The other day my neighbor texted me and suggested I cut some forsythia sticks off of her bush for inside blooming. Aren't they lovely?
And on this snowy day I have finally cut out my Easter dress!
Right now I feel like knitting and I hate to admit it but I've been watching the news channel because I sort of want to know what's happening in our crazy presidential race. I think I'll watch until I can't stand it anymore.
I'm SO looking forward to Easter Sunday! What are you going to do that day?
Thank you for popping in. You're kind to do so.
