Good morning, ladies!

A few hours ago, I said goodbye to my friend Amber again. She and her husband came over for another visit. We stayed up WAY too late, got up WAY to early, and now they're on their way to their next stop. This time, I knew they were coming. 

It was a cold foggy morning and the quiet that settles after the guests leave is always a little strange to me. 

As I headed downstairs to grab my laptop, I noticed the cats sitting together looking out of the window. Of course, the noise of the camera disturbed them. I never thought this would happen...Today, you're getting a post with a series of cat pictures. 

I'm going to be really busy in a few weeks...I'm not sure what it's going to look like, but I feel like I should just warn you now. My friend Heidi is going to be having another baby very soon and I'm going to be helping her for a while. 

In the meantime, I've been doing crazy things like tearing my room apart trying to get things organized. February is a time to start working outside again. I'm thinking that that is going to be put on hold this year. 

Normally I would start gathering leaves and sticks that have blown in and settled through the winter. This year, I would be digging up some grass that has been trying to take over a flower bed. 

By the time March comes I would be ready to start pulling up all the weeds that mark the coming of spring. 

I'm not exactly sure what I'll be doing this year.

I'll get to the yard work eventually...In the meantime, things are just going to look different. Rather than tending to dead things and ugly things it looks like I'll be coming alongside one of my best friends as she and her daughter welcome something very much alive and beautiful into the world.

Frankly, I'm looking forward to whatever the next few weeks will bring!


  1. I love your heart.
    Seriously, you are so compassionate and is incredibly refreshing! I can't wait to hear more about this new beautiful life coming into the world, and i know that you're going to be such a help to your friend!

  2. Yay for visiting friends and new babies. I just got off the phone with a dear friend who had a baby recently and her birth story just brought me to tears. Enjoy your friend's new little darling!

  3. So exciting to welcome new life into the world! Looking forward to hearing about that. Though I understand you'll be busy so no worries about updating. Just whenever you get the chance. :)

  4. LOOK at that picture, I LOVE IT! How cute are they!! Do you have horses too?



I love hearing from you! Please be sure to leave your e-mail so that I can reply. :)
