My bedroom window faces East, and I am blessed to be able to witness gorgeous sunrises without even having to get out of bed. The other day I couldn’t resist capturing some of the golden light and I jumped out of bed, pulled on my boots and an old fleece and ran outside.

Sam must have heard me leave, because when I turned around to walk back into the house, I discovered that he had followed me outside. He wasn’t wearing  a coat, and his boots were on the wrong feet but he was just so excited to be running outdoors in the sunshine at seven in the morning…and I mean, look at that smile!

I don’t know what the deal is with the last pose. He’s flexing perhaps? Hard to say.

wednesday yarn along


Joining Ginny and Nicole.

While I certainly have much more to share than a half-finished sock surrounded by random toys, I have found that my energy level has dropped significantly over the past two weeks and this is about the best I can do in terms of posting. I have been working steadily on these socks for Gabe but I haven’t found much time to knit during the day and it’s all I can do to stay up in the evenings till 9:00pm before dragging my sorry pregnant body to bed.

I have lots to share with everyone. Spring is here and the homestead is slowly waking up: bees are buzzing, apple blossoms are blooming, and sunrises are occurring earlier and earlier. I’ll post more over the next week or two; I feel like I need to get everyone caught up in our lives before the baby arrives and all I do is feed, burp, sleep, repeat.

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Version 2



While the majority of our weekend was spent indoors due to the rainy weather, we did have a few bursts of sunshine here and there. On Friday, Eddie took a four hour nap and Sam was determined to spend the entire afternoon outside. I really wanted to sit on the couch with my heating pad but I feel like my one-on-one time with him is going to be so limited (if not nonexistent) after the baby arrives so I set up a lawn chair with my knitting and watched him play while working on my Milo vest. I have to admit, the sun on my skin did feel amazing. It made me long for summer.

I have been coloring here and there but not too much. I have found that if I spend more than a half hour or so at a time coloring, I start to feel guilty. At least with knitting I’m producing something for myself or my family. Playing with colored pencils is just so…delightfully frivolous.

I finished Milo and after going through all my boy and girl knits, I am realizing that this baby really doesn’t need a single knitted item. May will be cool, but it will quickly warm up and the baby will be almost five or six months old before he or she will need even a light sweater. I am casting on a pair of socks for Gabe with a lovely hand painted yarn called Mountain Colors Bearfoot. The color is Mountain Trail.

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter filled with family, friends, and lots of chocolate.
