Spring and Random Photo Shares
Spring hits me every year with a forceful blow of busyness it seems. Activities gearing up to finish, summer plans getting laid out, trying to finish school strong while weather beckons outside.
I think it also has to do with Spring being a season of fatigue - the school year is nearing its end and energy is not as plentiful as it was in the Fall after rest over the summer. Pollen showers down and blows around in clouds and combined with heat and bugs zaps energy easier than usual.
The beautiful blooms, spotted lady bugs and pretty and chattering birds are all such a treat for the senses. So maybe this over-stimulation is part of things too.
Here are some random snippets from our life lately:
We've spotted this bird numerous times in the past week, this photo was taken from me sitting in bed with our blinds open! I've tried to capture a beautiful blue bird and have gotten so close to a photo but he always flies away. Their songs are plentiful in the early morning and their colors so beautiful!
Occupying a little boy in the car during 4H for two hours can get a tad interesting - taking silly pictures proved to be a lighthearted diversion that had him giggling: so cute!
Rachel was invited to a sweet woodland animals birthday party and we both enjoyed the sack races! A walk through the woods was so peaceful, beautiful and refreshing. Deer thundered through water collected in a grove of trees - it was over in seconds - but so majestic and amazing!
I love walks in the woods!!!
Also had a chance to celebrate a dear friends birthday - the honey bee theme was so fun and I made that popsicle stick honeycomb on the wall - love it! Inspired by this.
I've been working hard this week on polishing up my book and completing final edits!! This is getting exciting!
After a super busy weekend, my sweet son brought me homemade granola breakfast in bed. Love.
Well, how is that for a bunch of random things?! Happy weekend to you, friends -
