Keeping it simple.


The weekend seems to come and go so quickly these days. The days seemed to warm up all of a sudden and it seems it brought everything back to life! That includes my kids, who have up till now just wanted to spend all their time playing video games. I can't blame them much. It's not very fun to play out in our squishy wet yard in the cold. The sunshine and warm weather is really a treat. 

I only wish I felt a little better so I could have enjoyed it more. It was the opening weekend for our local Farmers market, but I just wasn't feeling tip top. We opted to stay closer to home. 

I sat on the porch and enjoyed the warm weather and watched the kids play. That gave me a chance to catch up on browsing through the magazines that I've purchased but never got a chance to look through. My magazines always end up dog-eared, where I have found something that is inspiring or pretty. Or that I want to try to make myself!
 

 I spied some pretty blossoms popping up along our fence line. I'm not sure what kind they are, but they look similar to black berry blossoms that we had out in California. They have thorns, too, so maybe it's a fruit bush I'm not familiar with. Any ideas?
 I did get around to burning some of our huge pile of yard waste. It was warm enough that the kids came out and played in the water while I kept an eye on the burn pile.
 The simple life. It's good stuff.
I hope you had a great weekend.

Here are some of my favorite blog posts from around the web today:
White Chocolate Fudge from My Recipe Magic - Yum. I might have to try this recipe.
DIY Industrial Chic Furniture from Martha Stewart -- I love the industrial elements.
Pottery Barn inspired pails-- These would be very cool planted with some cute plants and place just right to be house numbers for your home.
Decorate with dried flowers-- So sweet and simple. Good idea for all the little flowers my kids bring me. Maybe have one wall, just dedicated to them.
