: Mushroom cap the size of a saucer! : blowing bubbles (through the front porch screen door) : gorgeous native oak leaf hydrangea : diy tomato trellis in the afternoon light : faux fossil clay pendants : pillowcase for the Little Boy (the one blowing the bubbles above :)
So much has happened in the last few weeks here. School is out - for a very long time - as we have made the decision to homeschool our boys next year. I am both looking forward to it and terrified at the same time. When not Googling everything I can find about homeschooling, I am spending every available second outside. The tomato plant in that pot sprouted in a flower pot in the back yard! So we went down to the woods, gathered up a wheelbarrow load of beautiful, black composted topsoil and filled up that huge pot with it. Then we cut down some silver maple saplings (they grow like weeds here) and cut some long honeysuckle vines to secure it with - boom! diy tomato trellis. And finally, happily, I am making things again. The stress of the past few months (jobs, finances, school) have melted away with the long summer afternoons. I think I must be part plant. I can feel myself unfurling. Stretching. Relaxing. Soaking up the sun. Growing.
Love you guys. Thanks for stickin' with me.
