it’s oh so quiet….
i know the blog is neglected when a number of folk email to see if i’m ok. thanks guys. love you. the weeks are passing quickly, there are people i’ve not seen in what feels like forever, correspondence that is neglected, the studio is growing more and more cluttered and untidy, life is going on and is mostly pretty great. i feel though that i am still anxiously awaiting Spring’s arrival – there are so many hints of it and yet it’s the explosion of pink blossoms, Jericho bunnies and the arrival of Grandma P that i’m really waiting for before i truly feel it. soon soon. everything is happening just a few weeks later this year, including Easter. we did manage to get to Maplewood Farm to see the white and pink bunnies yesterday. we went as a playdate with Little A’s newest best bud at school. it was totally adorable – they even Eskimo kissed goodbye. sweetness!
you know what else is totally adorable? the things that little one’s say. i’ve started a magical thinking jar which of course includes a recent favorite; “i don’t want to cut my hair until May when the sheep get sheared” i can’t believe he remembered this from last year. we talked about the sheep getting sheared at Maplewood farm but we didn’t go since it was on my birthday and we were away. so sweet that he connected my birthday with the sheep shearing at the farm and warmer weather and a good time for a hair cut. i might be sad to see these locks fall but it will be nice to see his shining eyes again too.
Auntie’s birthday was a marker on our calender afterwhich Spring would soon follow. we stopped in for a short play and ate chocolate cake for lunch;
after this weekend (snow is expected) we will search more adamantly for those signs of Spring and hopefully shed the woolen layers.
perhaps we’ll venture out to Jericho and offer carrot tops at the bunny holes. i had a small dose of spring cleaning around the yard yesterday – it’s going to be so good this year in this new home. we’ll plant a small garden…dreaming and anticipating warmer weather and all it’s magic.
