don’t stand on my right…

because I won’t be able to look at you. I slept funny on my neck last night and now it’s killing me to turn my head to the right. I’m trying to slowly stretch it out, but man oh man, it hurts!

We’ve had another one of those lovely stay home all day kinds of days. The sun finally showed its face today and I keep finding Elizabeth in this square of sunshine on the floor. She crawls away from it, picks something up, and somehow manages to always plop back down right in the middle of it. Must feel warm on her back.

On Monday my girls and I had the pleasure of having Mama Urchin and her cutie pie kids come to our house to visit. As we sat together in my living room–both our (cow)girls off together somewhere outside, Mary nestled in beside her on the sofa and T mesmerized by the "penguin game"–I was amazed at how quickly we fell into a ‘groove’ of friendship. It was absolutely wonderful and comfortable. I felt like we’d been friends for a long time. We went for a walk around the farm, ate her yummy soup, and sat and talked until our children melted. Come back soon, friend. **edited to add: if you want to see what we sent one of the urchins home with, go here**

I’ve also been meaning to show you this lovely piece of pottery I received in the mail from my friend Melissa. I’ve admired her pottery on flickr for awhile and she’s FINALLY opened up an etsy shop (I’m digging this honey pot!) and started her own blog. This sea urchin vase was one that I admired for awhile and she was so kind to send me one of my own. I love it because it will be perfect for those tiny bouquets that little hands bring me all summer long. And for now, it’s helping my baby fern take root.  Thank you, Melissa. I really love it.

Miniswap partners went out today. So if you didn’t get an email from me, please let me know.

Happy Wednesday, friends.

  1. I love that pot, it is so cute! My kids have always been fascinated with the sun streaming in through the windows too, I love that 🙂

    I haven’t gotten an email from you yet.

  2. Molly, I love the picture of Elizabeth sitting in the sun. She is so precious. (Loved the one of her on the “pony” too!) Where does the time go? Just keep on keepin’ on. You’re such a good mama!

  3. That is so sweet how Elizabeth keeps gravitating toward the sunshine, I find myself doing the same thing all day at our house. Unfortunately, the sunniest spot is in our walk-in closet, there’s just not that much that can be accomplished in a closet!I’m so jealous that Mama Urchin got to visit, we want to come play on the farm too! Wouldn’t it be amazing if there could be a giant gathering of blogland mommies and children, it would be better than Woodstock. 🙂

  4. Hi Molly, beautiful pic of girly in the sun. I try everyday we have sunny, sunny weather to make as much vitamin D as I can!

    BTW, I didn’t get an email either!

  5. I tend to gravitate towards the sun-spots too! I just got the sticker yesterday…I guess it got lost for a bit but it made it’s way to me in one piece in the end. I can’t wait to get it on my car! Thanks so much again for your little give away!

  6. Such a cute sunshine seeker. When it’s sunny, I have a warm spot in the kitchen where I like to stand and drink my tea. Love your new header (and sidebar).
