shenanigans


so since I last visited this space we had a wonderful visit with nana and pipop, papa turned 35 (he spent approximately 15 hours of his birthday overseeing a house burn with the fire department, but before he left we got in a birthday breakfast complete with crepe paper streamers), and Claire and I had our first breakfast picnic of the year on the front steps.







usually there is some kind of art during our front-step-breakfast-picnics.  any excuse to linger on the steps while we listen to the birds and watch the sunlight hit new parts of the yard.


she also created a "little homesteader's village" complete with an umbrella shelter, a stone-lined path,




a wild-harvested (but not all edible and she knew that) dinner for her "son",


food for her chick,


 and a fire to keep warm (she put a little electric tea light underneath some bark, crafty girl).


another day perhaps, or maybe the same day.... there was a dance party.  I don't remember what we were listening to, but it got her moving and shaking!

  4. It all looks like good fun. I enjoy your posts of you and daughter because my daughter is an only child also. It seems that most of the families in blog land have multiple children, so it is nice to know there are other Momma and daughters out there who spend their days having adventures similar to ours.

  5. She is one, busy, little girl. I like that pic of her intense concentration upon her art and how she's got her trusty tin of color pencils right next to her.

    1. I LOVE the front step picnics. we need to have them way more often. sometimes they get moved down to the front walkway if we need more room to spread out. totally depends on what gets brought out there with our breakfast...

    1. I do love sitting out on those steps :) the bright quilt I bought from Cory (Lady Cordelia) when she was still selling home in her easy shop, and the other was made by my great aunt. one of these days I hope to make one myself!
