tulips & ramblings

some pictures of mother's day tulips

Yesterday evening I started not feeling so well, and today "it" turned into a full out head-cold. Thankfully, though, I have a nice supply of library books on hand. And so, I've been reading more than I have in awhile, and turned out a canvas painting and a watercolor today.

Things that have been going on recently include...

the lilac bush blooming
the grass getting cut for the first time this year (all green and velvety)
charlotte has learned how to goo and gurgle and make all sorts of noises
i got my hair cut (about 4 1/2 to 5 inches off)
we have 15 new baby chicks
my instagram has been overtaken by pictures of flowers and new paintings (which are of flowers)

What have you been doing recently? Happy Sunday.

PS // I hope to offer an update on Charlotte soon (and perhaps some two month photos), and also one on the baby chicks.


  1. These pictures are absolutely stunning. LOVE them! Great job. :)

  2. P.S. Hope you feel better soon! :)

  3. These pictures are gorgeous. I hope you're feeling better soon. Looking forward to an update on Charlotte. She's such a cutie. And I love your flower overloaded Instagram. It's a favorite for sure! xx

  4. Wow, those pictures are lovely! You have such a simple and beautiful way of writing and taking pictures. :) That is SO exciting that you have a baby sister! I'm just so happy for you. I've been babysitting a 7-month-old every week and it makes me want little siblings.


  5. ah.. I always get so excited when you post. these are seriously perfect.
    ugh. being sick in the spring is never nice. I'll be praying you feel better!
    and I can't wait for an update on Charlotte (and the pictures, ;)) and the baby chicks!!
