Winter-Time

Late lies the wintry sun a-bed,
A frosty, fiery sleepy-head;
Blinks but an hour or two; and then,
A blood-red orange, sets again.

Before the stars have left the skies,
At morning in the dark I rise;
And shivering in my nakedness,
By the cold candle, bathe and dress.

Close by the jolly fire I sit
To warm my frozen bones a bit;
Or with a reindeer-sled, explore
The colder countries round the door.

Snow Fun

So far this Winter has not been the play out in the snow kind of Winter. If there has been a decent amount of snow it’s been brutally cold outside or windy or both. We have had only a few days of outside time, so last weekend whent the temps soared into the 40s I ordered the babies outside as quickly as they could go to enjoy the snow and the warmth while it lasted!

At The Parsonage – Spring is Here

So it’s Spring. Which because we’ve had such an incredibly warm Winter, I have to say, is kind of like “oh yeah, it’s official now.” I have come to appreciate this season more, living where Winter is actually hard, harsh and long. Spring is welcomed and long for in the way I long for Fall after a hot Summer. In Texas Winter is cool then suddenly it’s hot and that’s Spring. I always thought this one just blended into Summer, like you have really warm Sp-ummer then third level of hades hot Summer.

Anyway, you’re welcome for all that. It’s Spring here. It made me happy when I opened the Easter box my mom sends every year filled with Springy things and those beautiful WHITE Easter dresses and handsome new spiffs for the boys.

I’ve even taken a few minutes to pretty the house for Spring. Aren’t tulips lovely?

The kids home in the morning have been wanting  to do more crafts lately. I dug up some for Spring. Brown chicks because I couldn’t find the yellow paint.

Perfectly Spring.

Esther saw the Robin foot print one and has been begging to do this for a week now. The thought of painting feet gave me serious pause but I relented and was organized enough for it to go quickly and easily enough.

So far, Spring here has been cool and rainy with the occasional warm and sunny day. Nice but keeps you on your toes. Don’t put the coats away just yet kiddies!
