"If the world were merely seductive, that would be easy. If it were merely challenging, that would be no problem. But I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White

Keeping faith


Soooo, it's still here.
winter.
 blech!
I've great faith in the Lord and am eager for Easter.
I've lost my faith in spring.


Sarah n I are really sick. Jack is bored.
Awesome.
I went outside to try n help him with his snowman.
I did it wrong.
Broke his snowman.
Overexposed my pics.
It's the invisible snowman!


Oh well, I'd rather be practicing my photography. indoors.

Looking at these pretty springlike posies .

Jack kissing crocus again for mommy's photo replay
 remembering last Monday when I practiced my outdoor photography in manual mode.
(wish I could actually improve!)
Guess they're marginally better than years past, when I could only shoot in auto.
Anyone remember these?!
Preschool Jack spontaneously kissing crocus!

taken three years ago when I started this blog (that seems like yesterday)!!!

Since it was a school slush snow day so we did some of my pins!
Starting with this gluten free goodness aptly named

Truthfully it was almost too sweet for me....
But we mustered up more paper snowflakes, epsom salt vases n glue snowmen...

If we got more snow, this would be great!

But right now I feel more like doing this!

Bleah--hope you and your girl feel better soon. Jack can entertain himself by learning to brew the perfect pot of tea. :)

I need the snowman sign. Must make. Love it. Don't be hard on yourself. They will be more snowmen and plenty more perfect pictures in the future. (Just hopefully no more snowmen this year.)

I TOTALLY feel ya sister! Yesterday it got up to about 57, which was the first we've seen those temps since last year. We frantically cleaned out our pig pens in readiness for the 4-H pigs coming soon, got my flowerbeds in shape for loads of duck mulch today, and just soaked up the sun. Today is our last day for warm weather, and then back in the 30's for Spring Break next week. Yipee. Can't the sun stick around? At least you have crocus to look at!
