Four Seasons::30 Days-Spring Days 14-18


Day 14: Tennis lessons.




Day 15-17: I took a little trip to the Festival for Faith & Writing.


Day 15: My hotel room...

Day 16: The chapel on the Calvin campus.

 

Day 17: The view from the nature trail...I had to take a walk to process all the good stuff I'd heard over the previous two days!

 This is Day 18...the view on the trail as I was running Monday morning. It's a little greener here in Texas than it was in Michigan.

Four Seasons :: 30 Days-Spring Day 13


 
Kittens. We volunteer with North Texas Cat Rescue and this is definitely kitten season. I love kittens, they are adorable and sweet. However, there are too many of them born each season. Please spay and neuter your pets!

Four Seasons :: 30 Days-Spring Day 12



It's not spring in Texas without a heart stopping storm or two. This one led to at least one tornado (thankfully in a fairly rural area) and golf ball size hail for us.

Four Seasons :: 30 Days-Spring Day 11 and A Kitchen Blog Hop

Heather at Beauty That Moves is hosting a kitchen blog hop today. This truly is the heart of our home, where so much living takes place. Homework and projects at the table, not to mention family dinners every night. Kids standing at the sink washing dishes and chattering away about who did what, said what at school or what the latest tech gadget is, including a full rundown of it's features; depending on which child is washing.


Where all the magic happens.
 


My daughter likes to bake, making muffins or scones or bread for her and her brother's breakfast.
 

 
Supplies for my morning grapefruit habit.
 
 
Fresh homemade Honey Walnut Granola
 
 
Towels and napkins ready to be put away.
 
 
Where we eat together every night. Every night we say a blessing, then go around saying either what we are thankful for,
or naming something nice we have done for someone and something nice that was done for us.
 
 
Dinner prep.
 
 
Daughter hard at work, baking.
 
 
There is a crystal mobile that hangs over the breakfast table. It was reflecting on the refrigerator, a nice gift in the midst of a task I'm not particularly fond of. Posted on the side is a cartoon, cut from the paper, that reads, "Love is...cleaning their fingerprints off the fridge." I try to remember to look at every time I wipe all the fingerprints off.
 
 
Because these pictures so fully capture the light, and our life for spring I'm including this as Day 11 of the Four Seasons :: 30 Days Challenge that Peggy is hosting.

My nose and eyes do not necessarily appreciate the finer points of springs arrival.
