a summer morning

Our computer died weeks {or is it months now} ago and our internet has been dropping it like it’s hot of late.  Needless to say, blogging has been next to impossible and not so enjoyable.  But I do want to share our days with you so here are a few photos of our morning.

I marvelled at how tiny and sweet my two little ones looked creeping down the stairs this morning.

I took deep lung-fulls of their sleepy scent.

We visited the 14 new gold laced wyandotte chicks, and our two baby ducks (Anne + Gilbert} had a little swim.

We walked to the apple trees and counted the tiny apples that we will eat in the fall.

We checked the progress of the raspberries or blackberries {I don’t know how to tell until the berries form, but this might help}.  Whatever they are, they look promising which is great considering we got none last year.

We picked flowers.

We checked the garden and pulled up some radishes.

We laid on a blanket under the trees.

We had apple pancakes {my Gramma’s recipe} for lunch.

I washed the dishes and tried to remain mindful {Bin Iver helped…in fact, his music may change my life}

The house is {always} a mess, I am certain we will need to reupholster all our furniture after the kids are done having their way with it, and the kids are sometimes impossible, but we are surrounded by magic.

So much magic.

go gently + be wonderful

      Had I been thinking, I would have called them matthew and marilla since they are likely siblings

    Love “Anne and Gilbert”, but “Matthew and Marilla” would have been adorable too!

    Dirty dishes mean fun was had! Those radishes look really lovely well. Summer time is a good time for the internet to go out anyway. Your out side so much it won’t all to you right?

    I was also going to exclaim over their names. So I will – “Anne and Gilbert!” Oh, Matthew. I almost get teary thinking of him. Such lovely, lovely photos of your morning – I’m glad you still came here to share, despite technology troubles. :)

    Oh our house is a mess too, I figure that it shows we actually live here though :-) And I am not entirely sure what my husband and I were thinking when we bought WHITE furniture after we bought our house – pre-kids. Lets just say that it is stained, stained and stained some more…I’m thinking about making some couch/chair covers – but probably won’t get to it until the kids are much older :-)

    So much beauty in the ordinary if we only stop and notice – thank you for sharing.

    I love the photo of them walking through the grass. Beautiful. And love the duckling names!
