as february draws to a close...



we've been chasing the chickens...

taking naps in the sun...

dressing hudson in his very first sun hat...



and hanging newly thrifted sheets out to dry on the line.

even the chickens have been tricked into thinking spring has sprung.

rain is in the forecast for the coming days--we're not out of winter's woods just yet. but we're certainly having lots of fun pretending.

one of my favorite smells ever is bed linens dried on the line. i mean, as a mother nothing can ever smell better than my babies, but sun-dried cotton is high on my list. i got a pleasant surprise today--the blue-flowered duvet cover pictured above (had for only $3, by the way) turned out to be queen-sized, not twin as it was marked. it was taped into a bundle that i didn't bother opening. just figured i'd stash it away to keep as an extra for lucy, once she gets into a twin-sized bed.

well. it's a queen and i happened to have a lonesome, queen-sized down comforter that needed a nice duvet. the two are now spread atop my bed, waiting for hudson and i to come in and snuggle up into all of that sunshine-y perfume.

after all, we still need an extra blanket on the bed. days may be warm, but nights are chilly!

so jealous of all your sunshine, but reading your post and seeing your pictures gives me hope that eventually some of that sunshine will make it's way to the east coast!

I just had to say thank you for being my inspiration in so many ways.

100% jealous of your sunshine! I sure hope it is on it's way to Ohio...soon enough I guess.
