No matter how much you want time to stand still, it just keeps marching on. With spring just around the corner, and the girls headed home for spring break—sort of—March was a month of anticipation.
We celebrated birthdays, and Easter, and knitting in https://bigwhitehouseonthehill.wordpress.com/2016/03/25/a-little-of-this-a-little-of-that-2/. And by the by, Sweet Miss’ received a pair of socks from the Easter bunny that were fabulous, if I do say so myself. (And yes, she did make it back from Ireland with lots of stories safe and sound.)
Hard to believe, but we bought original artwork in March for the entry alcove in https://bigwhitehouseonthehill.wordpress.com/2016/03/11/now-thats-art/. Papa Willy was nonplussed, but I really like it. I’d love to say we’ve balanced it out with other fabulous pieces, but this isn’t a movie it’s real life.
And the painting over our bed looks lovely—especially when I make our bed. I would definitely order from abroad again, but I’d be certain to factor in the extra cost of having a piece mounted. Check out https://bigwhitehouseonthehill.wordpress.com/2016/03/21/a-matter-of-scale/ for more details.
Moving outdoors, we looked at the lovely https://bigwhitehouseonthehill.wordpress.com/2016/03/07/blossom-time/ in the orchard. It’s just such a beautiful time of year.
And the blossoms of the past with a whole lot of patience and the support of a paint stirrer resulted in https://bigwhitehouseonthehill.wordpress.com/2016/03/14/anticipation-rewarded/. We grew lemons in Washington state. OK, so they’re were grown inside, and it took over a year, but we grew lemons in Washington state.
That’s edible lemons that we ate with chicken and in a lovely lemon pie. It’s these little miracles that can change lives.
Speaking of miracles, I want to tell you that the seeds I planted the other day have sprouted, my garden is covered in the green of new growth. I want to tell you that, but I’d be lying. It’s only been a couple of days; give me a break. I’m crossing my fingers and looking forward to a great season in the garden. Optimism is half the battle for https://bigwhitehouseonthehill.wordpress.com/?p=6873&preview=true.
And now for the https://bigwhitehouseonthehill.wordpress.com/2016/03/04/magic-powder/ post. I received a lot of interest from South America with this post, don’t ask me why, apparently they have a problem with ripped jeans, too. I’m still meaning to check out the CD tutorial; maybe it’ll happen next week.
Hope your March was filled with time with family, celebration, the promise of spring, and the joy of living.
