crocuses blooming in the front bulb garden…

(this was yesterday…now the poor things are covered in snow!)

and one of my favorite Gladys Taber books

“The Book of Stillmeadow”

I’m doing a re-read of the spring entries…

I love her poem “Song for April”…

and the sweet illustrations…


The birds chirping in the tree tops…

The squirrels chattering…


~for Emily wherever I may find her~

What a dream I had
Pressed in organdy
Clothed in crinoline
Of smoky burgundy
Softer than the rain

I wandered empty streets down
Past the shop displays
I heard cathedral bells
Dripping down the alleyways
As I walked on

And when you ran to me, your
Cheeks flushed with the night
We walked on frosted fields
Of juniper and lamplight
I held your hand

And when I awoke
And felt you warm and near
I kissed your honey hair
With my grateful tears
Oh, I love you girl
Oh, I love you


This cotton blossom candle as I write…



“When I get to Heaven, I am going to eat all the hot bread and potatoes I want. Cinnamon rolls, pinwheel biscuits, nut muffins, French-fried potatoes, baked potatoes, creamy mashed potatoes. Potato fluff. Butter will go well too. And fresh-made jam. Or clear amber honey.” ~Gladys Taber


bread dough…


that if I wait long enough to look outside, eventually the blasted snow will melt!

How are you spending your Saturday?

    YEAH, it’s Six Senses Sunday!!

    SEEING – the transformation of my house as a friend makes improvements for me! (changed out 3 light fixtures that I’ve hated since we moved in 6 yrs ago & painting my daycare bedroom.)

    HEARING – Today, it’s the tv. Catching up on my shows since I’m home alone – and enjoying it immensely! Last night it was the sounds of laughter from my girlfriends as we had dinner out together.

    SMELLING – fresh spring air from the open door upstairs & fresh primer & paint downstairs. LOL


    FEELING – like I’m getting things accomplished which is a huge weight off my shoulders. My to do list is very long, and sometimes it’s overwhelming, but feeling like I’m marking off enough to make a difference feels really great.

    KNOWING -the chaos in my life will pay off someday and I’ll be able to relax by the beach in the hot sun with no worries!!! ahhhhhhhhhhh
