I have been lost the past few days in warm breezes,
I had to join my son in creating the longest Playdough snake
in Playdough history...
our Playdough history anyway.
I've been dealing with Miss Spiff.
I'm not sure if she is teething,
going through an independent stage,
desires to be as grown as the crew who are out and about in the sudden spring weather,
or all of the above.
But I've been dealing with some impressive attitude coming from this little creature.
Her attire on this day so expressly fits her.
Speaking of spring weather,
the Fairy Princess wandered out to the field and leashed up Jake for a royal walk.
I was beckoned to attach the saddle to the creature so that Levi could be commanded
to join in her fun,
but the saddle is in need of some repair.
So Jake (and Levi) was spared the ordeal.
Keeping this kid's focus on school in this sudden warm up
had been a full time job for her porch-sitting mother,...
lost in the plant catalog
every country kitchen book and magazine
on the premises:
My Farmer gave me a Christmas/birthday present of a new kitchen base cupboard.
This one is literally crumbling.
So I've ordered an unfinished oak cabinet through an Amish builder.
I will need to decide how to finish it.
The counter top is also wood.
I will need to finish it also.
If you have any suggestions
I am VERY open to them.
My sister has been after me to post some pictures of our grand project.
We have wanted to close in this back porch for years now...
and the opportunity has arrived!!!
I'm still in shock,
So, here is the progress so far.
We always eat out here in the warm weather
because there is such a beautiful view
and much more space than our kitchen.
I'm hoping we can get a pull-out couch or futon,
so if we get far-away guests,
they'll have a nice place to sleep.
Seeing this view and the cheerful light,
I'd like to move out here myself.
One last update before I go:
I started this project a few weeks ago:
It is almost done.
It's been a little more work than I expected.
Here is a peek of it so far:
I am excited to have reached 100 followers,
so I'll be posting a give-away in the next week or so,
depending on when I finish it.
Better get back to
that catalog work now.
Have you been immersed in any gardening catalogs lately?
