sunny winter

It's been a while, I know.  There's been so much to say and not much at all really.  When I'm asked what I've been up to, most days it's just nothing really but the every day stuff, you know?  Our computer died back a few weeks ago though and we replaced it with a used job.  That's the main reason I've taken a break. But, it's taken us this much time to put all our programs back on the computer.  And still more time again to sit down and want to upload pictures and write something down.  So, here I am again.  At least for today.

I'm pretty sure I love taking pictures of the kids doing art.  Some in their pajamas and some not.  We homeschool after all.  It's quiet in the house.  The only sounds I can hear are the washing machine and dryer clanking and swishing down the hall and the kids intently working with paint.  The chairs creak and the paint brushes flow from paint to paper to water and back again quietly.....peacefully.  Our kitchen table is the hub for so much of our activities.  It's really the heart of our home.  But our home is pretty small.  Just the way I like it.  If I had a million bucks, I would still have a little place, all cozy and intimate.

The glob paint we're using today smells delicious:  berries, pomegranate and lemon verbena.  The colors are pretty awesome too.

Happy sunny, I think it's winter day to you!


  1. I LOVE these photos and am glad all is well, Kyndale. I especially love Amelia's painting. We love Glob paint, too. I won our first batch as a give-away over at Bamboo Family Magazine. Hugs, Nicola

    1. Thanks Nicola ♥ I love her picture too. I think I'm going to frame it! I really love glob paint too. It made our house smell SO good! We got ours from the local discovery museum but I'm going to order a whole bunch more on-line. Thanks for coming by to say hi. I know that my blogging has been so sporadic lately! :)
