Sundays are for...

Waking to the sweet scent of blooms, spring coming in a frothy white. Remembering to use that early morning light to capture this year's show.
Sunday is for...
Sunday is for...
Sunday is for...

Seeking a new point of view of something very old.
Sunday is for...

Serious fun.
Sunday is for...

Salvaging enough wood to make a deck and a tree house for the boys. This is like finding a pot of gold to a carpenter.
Sunday is for...

Sewing and sewing and sewing seams. And finally feeling like I am getting somewhere on the Scrappy Summer quilt.
Sunday is for...
(I chain pieced two squares, pressed and decided on a rough layout and then started on the strips. Totally made this up. I bet there is a better method).


Silly colored Easter bagels. Mason chose pink and Owen chose blue. Shockingly colored but still very tasty.
Sunday is for...

Salad in a barrel. We water it and then pinch it carefully (you have to hear Mace tell me not to pull it, pinch it, Mama, no pull roots).
Sunday is for...

Seeds and soil. Turning the beds and pushing in the bean seeds. Dirty but fun.
Sunday is for...

Sun on bare feet. Muddy toes. Blankets on grass. A few stitches in the warm rays before I have to get up again and make something else for someone.
Sunday is for...
Sunday is for...

Sundays are not for rest around these parts. But that is quite alright.

Okay, now after writing this post I am tired.

Your wee family is so rich.
In spirit and goodness.
And beautifully captured.

That quilt is amazing! And I want to come over, let the boys play outside while we chat and drink wine. Your house in and out just looks so perfectly warm.

durn... for once I'm jealous of warm weather... we've got snow flurries to keep us company. And if it's not those it is hail & thunderstorms. I'm getting tired of this weather :)
