Snowy Sunday

Spring, where have you gone?

Just yesterday I was home in Kansas looking at these sunny daffodils in the yard. Now I’m back to Iowa, where it’s been snowing all day. Boo.

I was going to use it as an excuse to wallow in sickness, as I returned feverish with a swollen throat. But a few pills later I feel better, and there’s always so much to do on a Sunday.

For me, errands and freelance work. For Sadie, monitoring the yard.

For Mike, working on his garden fence. For Reggie, well, she seems to have the day off.

Loving: sherbet bowls

I’m continuing my love affair with orange. My mom left these for me, and I was so excited when I unwrapped them. I have no idea what I’m going to fill them with (I’m thinking buttons or something rather than ice cream), but that’s never stopped me from acquiring bowls before.
