Laundry swaying in the breeze.
Chubby, bare naked baby legs in canary yellow boots.
Folding clothes on the porch.
Flowers, finally flowers!
Eggs in abundance, the chickens are as happy as we are.
Painted piggy toes.
Bed on the porch.
Shirtless boys (and the shirts I find scattered in the yard).
The dreaded and loathesome winter/summer clothing switch... it's done! YES!
Cleaning out and organizing hidden spaces of junk.
The song of the peepers, lulling me to sleep.
Windows opened, fresh sheets on beds.
So many good things...such long awaited, yearned-for goodness!
Andrew had his first litters of rabbits a few weeks ago, and they went from a nest of tailless rat-like creatures to these impossibly sweet little bunny rabbits. He had four adult rabbits. And then the other Mama had another litter. We now have 20 darling baby bunnies...which is a bit overkill, if you ask me. But no one minds that many when they are so sweet and cuddly and cute. But in just a few short weeks those babies are going to turn into rabbits and then we may find ourselves with a little problem. The goal is to sell them at a local auction (that sells livestock too). I hope everything works out just.exactly.as.planned.
That's usually how things work, right? a-hem.
I've been sorting and cleaning lately but with homeschooling, it seems like it is impossible to get anything more than ONE 'extra' job done by the end of the day, so it is very slow going. The cubby today. The mudroom tomorrow. Sorting winter clothes. Donation bags, storage piles, bags for friends. I am trying to be content with those one 'extras' getting check off the mile-long list and not frantic about the fact that when one things gets checked off, two more take its' place.
I am high on spring right now- and it is pretty hard to get me down.
Everywhere I look, promise. Everywhere, life. Reaching up. Growing sturdy. Becoming refreshed.
And so am I.
