Week 8

Hope is faith holding out its hand in the dark.
George Iles

February, 2011.  Days filled with glimmers of hope.  Purple crocus peeking through fluffy blankets of snow.  Open water dancing in the sunlight.  Dripping icicles.  Birds in abundance.  Sunshine moments.  Jacket afternoons.  Faith holds out its hand and hope springs up in the chirp of a robin...spring is just around the corner.

Week 7

Love is the flower you've got to let grow
John Lennon

This week in grows outside our backdoor!  Warmer days.   Shorter nights.  Singing birds.  Robins.  Leftover dandelions.  Handmade wind chimes.  Handpicked Valentines. A gaggle of geese.  Weeping willows.  Third grade concerts.  (photos to come)    The mixed up days of February.  Week 7.  Project Life. 2011

Week 6

Winter is the season in which people try to keep the house
as warm as it was in the summer, when they complained about the heat.  
~Author Unknown

February....snow piled high.  Birthday sleepovers.  
Long nights.  Short days.
Snow.  Snow.  Melting snow.  Dirty cars.  More snow.
 Filling bird feeders. Knitting.  Planning summer. 
Eating pizza! 
February fun times!

Week 5

Coconut shrimp and clams.  Below normal temps.  A snow day.  And another!  Patches of brown in a sea of white. Little red finches on a newly hung feeder.  Back lit grass at sunset.  Antique bells with a unique sound.  Thigh high drifts.  Late January.  Early February.  Days best spent in a rocker with a quilt and a new book!
