Thursday Quicky. Mostly pictures.

A quick low-down..

Because this was written last night and I fell asleep before i hit the publish button.

Today was a rare sleep-in-late kind of day.  One of those mornings you wish you could just sleep a few more hours but crawl out of the covers at 9am because, alas, all good things must come to an end and just knowing my favorite Golden French Toast coffee is waiting, waiting for my anticipated morning conversation with my husband, along with two children greeting me with big smiles…so worth  it.

Have I mentioned how much I LOVE the sunrises and sunsets here?

Ahh-maaa-zing! And that’s to say the least. Even the mid day views are beautiful.

We can’t wait to enjoy it moreso in the spring out on the back deck.

Breakfast I whipped up for my sweet husband because, well, he rocks my world and I appreciate him so much. 😀

Our snow is pretty much non existent as of this moment, some ice here and there, some grass too. Temperatures are making it feel and look more spring-like than anything. And I have yet to take pictures of our grass, but I will before it is covered by that pretty white stuff again tonight.

All of the photos in this post were taken over the past week and a half.

Olive has her very own mirror, which she loves to look at herself  in and  say hello to “I love” (this is how she says Olive).

Stream of Conscience

So, I hate to do it but I’m going to start off with a rant. Yesterday I had a blog post all typed via my cell phone. Battery was low. I knew it was a bad idea, yet I kept typing anyway, just because sometimes I’m a bad-ass like that. Then, just as quickly as I had wrote, my phone shut off on me. Not saving a draft on it’s way out… Figures.


Initially, I wrote about how on Friday Brandon came home from school with a rash which I dismissed until Saturday morning because at first it didn’t look like anything to worry about. He had no other symptoms besides rash and itching and it seemed mild. I thought maybe it was an allergic reaction to something he was doing at school and assumed it would be better by the end of the weekend. Saturday morning I took him up to the ER, where he was diagnosed with Chicken Pox, even though he was vaccinated when he was little. Olive has been vaccinated also so I asked what the chances would be that she would catch this. Apparently, when you get vaccinated it only protects you 85%, so there is still that small chance. Brandon must have been that small chance. So, no school until Monday, or until it resolves. Scary because his lymph nodes in his skull are swollen. I’ve honestly never seen anything like it and I was unaware we even had lymph nodes in our skull. In the meantime we will be doing school work from home.


I’ve taken some photos this past week, which I will post later this evening.


Olive’s hair is coming in so beautifully. I was just talking to Dennis about how in a few more months she would be wearing barrettes. Finally. I can’t wait. To see her with hair, eep. I plan on purchasing a pretty box this spring for all of her hair accessories.


Today greeted us with above normal temperatures here in Vermont. A very mild 40 degrees. I see grass. Lots of green grass. And water. Our back yard is looking more like a pond right now.


I will be back later with new pictures.. Have a great day.
