The view from my kitchen window yesterday- nonstop snow craziness!
And the kitchen window view today. Blinding sunshine on all that white!
Today was a strange day for me. Full of emotion, and then numbness. It is the one year anniversary of my mom's passing. Weirdly, I shed a lot more tears the day we flipped the calendar page over to February. Just seeing the word "February" was depressing. Also, our calendar is a homemade one. My husband puts them together online at the end of every year, and orders several copies that we share with close family. This month's main calendar photo is of my mom with her beloved partner, my brother and my sister in law. I can't explain it but I still can't bear to look to look at pictures of my mom! Just can't stand it without crying...
It's absolutely mind blowing that it's been a whole year. I have thought and thought about her final days so much this past year. It is so very fresh in my mind that it feels like I just came home from CA last month. I can't even begin to describe how badly I want to call her and hear her voice and laughter. The more time that passes, the more stories I have saved up that I want to tell her, the more painful it gets. So much has happened! So much I want to tell her! My mom, my friend.
My silly baby fell asleep on my shoulder today with his apple chunk for a pillow.
Our 8 yr old helped me with labeling some bins after my last big organization project. I love this one! lol Anyone need a gue sick?
Farm Girl singing "Hark the Herald Angels Sing" to the ducklings. That's her favorite song these days.
Today I accidentally dropped an entire, unopened gallon of molasses onto the floor! It exploded and oozed a gooey tidal wave across the laundry room floor. Might as well invite the kids in for some molasses fingerpainting! (And then a bath!!)
Look who's helping me with the dishwashing tonight. :). I love the way she copies me - it's so cute!
Here is our crazy dog in the snow! He HAS a super cozy woodshed all of his own! Yet he often prefers to sit just outside our door.
Good night everyone!
