skidoo



my son's toy snowmobile was driving through some black paint today 'making prints'. That got boring fast so he painted some whiskers on his cheeks.

washing day


I love my clothesline. I really really do. I love how clothes smell that have been dried on the line, I love how stiff and scratchy everything is and I love how white the sun bleaches the cloth diapers. At the last house we lived in I couldn't have a clothesline or a compost and I always felt like I wasn't really myself.

end of the day


spring is always so busy. the days pass so quickly, my 'to do' lists can't even begin to keep up. i have seeds to plant, shirts to make, quilts to sew and socks to knit but my kids just want to be outside discovering a new season. i took this picture at the end of a really busy day, when i put my feet up before starting the dishes.
