xxoo 💌

I really adore everything about Valentine's Day.  As a kid, some
of my fondest school memories centered around giving & getting
little cards (I still even have my childhood Valentines!).  As a
teacher, I loved the focus of this day on kindness.

This past week, I was home on an unexpected snow day...
so spent the morning unpacking my sweet Valentine's Day

In a place of honor, is this bowl of house numbers...from my 
childhood home: 5410 Healy Lane.  When my sisters & I 
closed the door one last time over 20 years ago, I took these 
with me.  I can see my mom's brush strokes.  xxoo💌

sometimes 5:00 a.m. is the best time

It is dark outside at the farm...the kind of night that feels like a blanket.
I am awake early, pretending my instant coffee is the real deal in my 
mug from the first Starbucks in Seattle.  The house is quiet, just the
ticking of the mantle clock.  As usual, my Lucy cat is at my side.  This 
quiet moment calls for reflection.  I will be anxious to say farewell to 
2017 in just a few days, hoping that bringing out a new calendar will truly
turn the page.  But, I suspect that it will not be quite so easy.  There will
be more 5 a.m. mornings, more reflection.  That will be my word & my
work in this new year.

our sweet woods

Today we cut boughs from our sweet woods in Winter, Wisconsin.
We truly must be caretakers of a million trees on our property.
Today they were dressed in snow!  ❄️❄️❄️❄️🏠❄️❄️❄️❄️

Benny & Joon

Baby goats have arrived at Meadowview Farm.  This is the first 
time these three month olds have been in a big grassy pasture.
They ran, jumped, hopped...and chased our big boy goats.  We 
are delighted to have them join our little farm family!

Winter has arrived at my booth at the Hixton Schoolhouse Antique
Mall in Wisconsin.  I am enjoying a more subtle palette this year.
