Some randomness

Before we get to some random things floating around my head today, make sure you check out my giveaway for Amy's newest issue of {Art Together} Printmaking!

Outside my window the snow has ended. Now it's just cold. But the sun has been peaking through the clouds this afternoon!

I am thinking about that I need to start ignoring my lizard brain. And just write. 

I am thankful for a husband who supports all the creative ideas I come up with. ANY idea I come up with

In the kitchen I should be putting together a meal plan. I have good intentions to. And I need to write a grocery list. We don't have much food in the house!

I am wearing yoga pants, sweater & warm hand knit socks. I am cold! 

I am creating a poetry project. I made some good progress this week on it! I'll be sharing more here soon!

I am going to begin supper soon & get some laundry done. The baby has been fussy all day. 

I am wondering where spring is! Although I have been seeing signs of it the past few days. Just waiting for it to come to stay

I am reading some poetry "how-to" books; Slow Motion by Dani Shapiro

I am hoping to see flowers popping up soon

I am looking forward to my husband coming home to take over bouncing around the house with a fussy baby duty

I am learning lessons in habit. When I stick with something it works. If I let a few days go by of not doing it, it is hard to get back to it. Oh the excuses! 

Around the house I am putting together a "spring cleaning" list. Not as intensive as the one from last year. Really just an airing out, cleaning the floors & washing some curtains. Need to wait for a string of warmer days though

I am pondering "Do you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?

One of my favorite things quiet mornings. Watching the sun come up as I read from the Bible, journal & enjoy that first cup of coffee. Packages in the mail "just because". I love happy mail!

A few plans for the rest of the week the week is almost done. This weekend it is celebrate St. Patrick's Day all weekend. Ree has plans to do some St. Patrick's art. We should start working on that

A peek into my day This has started to be our new routine in the morning. After she wakes up by watching one show, we put music on & sit at the table to do our "work". Mine is usually making to-do lists or grocery lists or some other kind of list. Ree works on art or her version of "school". Her new favorite activity is to "go to school" and learn her letters. 



  1. It is cold here today and tonight I hope to have my last fire of the season in the wood stove. All these up's and down's with the temps are driving me nuts.

    I sit down every Sunday afternoon to write out a meal plan, if I don't my week doesn't flow.

    I hope the baby calms soon, maybe growing?

  2. I love happy mail too! I got a package yesterday :)

  3. It's always better to learn letters in a princess dress. :-)

  4. I wish I could enter the giveaway but my little one isn't little anymore!! Fussy baby days were a downer. They didn't happen too often but when they did it just kinds sucked the productivity out of the day. I hear it's supposed to be nice this weekend. They snow again Monday! Enjoy the weekend.

  5. I sit at my table every morning drinking coffee,journalling, praying then onto organizing the to do list and errands. Makes for a smooth day! Love the peek into your world :)
