Month Slice

Outside My Window - Snow!! We are just days into spring and we get our first snow of the year. It is beautiful.

The kids are in the backyard playing in the snow. The temperature is going to warm up so they got out there first thing to enjoy it. Nothing like running around finding snow clothes at 8:00 am on a no school day to get the day started. ;)

***I took a break and went sledding with the kids. The snow is deep but really wet so I knew it wasn't going to last long for good sledding. We walked down to the nearby field and used the steep slopes to have some fun. I love watching my kids sled. Love! Now, back to writing....

I Am Thinking - About Cam and how much I miss him today. He is the biggest kid of all in the snow. No matter what the weather is doing Cam still has to go to work. Instead of riding his motorcycle to work he took our back-up van. It took him really long to get into the city and I'm sure it will take way too long to come home. He is missing the fun snow day. And we miss him!

I Am Thankful - For the day off of school. It was a scheduled no school day already. The snow makes it all the more fun. I love school but it's really nice to have an extra day at home with the kids. No rushing to get ready in the morning and out the door.

From The Kitchen - Just made a double batch of popcorn. That is our favorite snack. 3T olive oil and 1/2 C popcorn in a heavy pan on the stove. Sprinkle with coarse salt. Delicious!!

Dinner? I don't know yet. I'm thinking maybe a big pot of baked beans....spooned into baked potatoes. It's vegan meal time.

I Am Wearing - Flannel pj bottoms, white t-shirt, socks and yes, my slippers. Cozy!

I Am Creating - A picture collage of our last trip to the ocean. I found two antique leaded window frames in our playhouse. I cleaned them up and after searching on Pinterest I found the fabulous idea of using each pane for a photo. I ordered the photos and am deciding which ones to use. It's going to look awesome! I'll post pics when it's done.

I Am Going - To take Sis to gymnastics tomorrow. She is amazing! Seriously, I know I'm the mom and I shouldn't brag but she really is talented. She is a natural. It's very fun for me to watch her.

I Am Reading - I just finished Mink River for book club. It was very good. I loved the unusual writing style and the characters too. Plus, it takes place on the OR coast. One of my favorite places.

I Am Hoping - For sunshine this weekend. We had a nice family bike ride a couple of weeks ago and I'd love to go out again. I've missed riding over the winter. Come on sun!

I Am Hearing - The kids are watching a movie and I'm sitting here on the couch with them. Snuggle time. I hear lots of popcorn chomping.

I Am Laughing At - My kids flying down the hill on sleds. It really makes me laugh. Right now the kids are giggling at the movie. Listening to them laugh makes me laugh. It's contagious.

Around The House - Wet coats and boots and pants are hanging to dry from our snow adventure this morning. Sunshine is streaming through the windows and warming us up. The beds are unmade and the kitchen is a mess. But, we are having a snow day and snuggling up for movie time trumps cleaning up.

One Of My Favorite Things - Babies. I love them. So. Much. Their precious faces. Soft skin. Fuzzy hair. Sweet breath. Gummy grins. Dimpled hands. I notice babies everywhere I go. I talk to them, coo at them. If I can, I stop and stroke the chubby faces. I love babies.

I Never Thought This Would Come Out Of My Mouth - Did you wipe the dog's bottom? Uh-huh, that right. We have to wipe Kali's bumbo after she goes poo-poo. I never thought I'd be wiping a dog's hiney.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week - Next week is conference week. I LOVE going to my kids' conferences. And it's the last week before Spring Break!!! Yippee!!

A Picture Thought I'm Sharing -


  1. Ilove this sliceof snowy homemade goodness. Thank you!

  2. So happy to hear you left the beds unmade and spent the day with your kids. I wish I had done that more as now I see how swiftly the time passes.
