a marshmallow day

The house groans and yawns under the weight of thick snow and I am happy to have my little family together safe under one roof. I dream of warm spring days and wonder if we will be in our dream house by then, but for now I am content and happy in this little house in which we began our journey into a family. The home that has held us safe and warm for four and a half years. She is friendly and familiar though flawed.

Yes, I wander into thereness but surrender to today’s hereness. Today the snow is glorious and winter is welcome to stay for just a little while longer.

sewing (just a glimpse today, but full details tomorrow)
peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
letters of of gratitude
toys in the water dish
mismatched socks
a sleeping gnome
bouncy bird
yummy fabric
lentil soup
plaid jammie pants
the waltons

a good day in the house of the bird and gnome indeed.

go gently + be wonderful

    Oh, hooray! I love finding a new blog to love. I smiled at the mismatched socks picture, and the animals in the water dish…I have a toddler too, and the quickest remedy for crankiness is a bowl of water on the floor with a miniature teapot, some animals, and a spoon! Your photos are breathtaking.

    Loving the photographs. For some reason I had the impression you were in England but obviously you are a neighbor to the North judging from those Maple Leaf stamps! I love Canada. Anyhow, I just wanted to say thank you for putting thank link to The Year of Choice on your page. The timing was perfect..it is just what I am needing for some much needed growth. Getting the sense you are doing much better than before..Happy for you!
