warm and wonderful……


the weather has been anything but Winter…..
shorts, navy and white polka dot dresses,
sandals, 
tourists and smiles ……

lunches in warm bowls….
skillets simmering …..
sunshine filling every corner….

projects inside and out, nearly in every corner on this home front….

room remodeling….
sawdust …..
gardens warm and smelling of lovely full blooming rosemary…..

the chickens are so happy…..
a coop smelling of fresh herb…..
when I went to check and say "good night"…..
all three were piled on top of several sprigs in one box….
all tucked in tight and sweet dreams with heavenly scent…..

while out and about marketing…..
hardware lumber (oops, a miss cut)…
the feed store….
all the while the lingering scent of rosemary remained on my clothes….

it felt warm and summer….
fresh picked oranges from the yard…..
dinner with the kids home for Sunday supper….

talk of visiting friends from Sicily later in the year….
memories and excitement from ideas of adventures to share with them when they arrive….







a perfect pillow from The Dutch Girl for my porch (thank you Gayle)





this is going to be adorable……
an over window corner shelf…..
white and wonderful………
who needs Winter when we can play and garden and create????

Love the pics, especially the soup! Gives me a nice warm feeling of the joy of being at home doing all the simple day-to-day stuff.
