love thursday!


i am riding the high that a few degrees above freezing brings.   yesterday was the most glorious blue sky.  we took full advantage and went for a walk on the beach.  most winter days we are alone on the beach, but that sun, and kick in the temps brought even more out to soak it all in.  lots of people with very happy pups running the beach.  this enthralls casey the animal lover.  "hi puppy!  hi puppy!  hi puppy!"  she squeals at each passing dog.  kellen did his thing, find stuff, skip stones, and build a "city" out of beach grasses and twigs, then i remembered we needed to build a little snowman too!  so a few snowballs in hand and 2 seagull feathers later and we had our little beach snowman who looked more like a snow angel.  the tide was in so our play space was a bit limited being we were right up against the snow line.  but it was still so good for all of us.  oh and the best part... it was the very first time this winter i could be there with no mittens or gloves!!! (i know its the little things for me LOL)   then on the way home we took a side trip to tim horton's for a few of these lovelies and some chicken noodle soup for big sissy home sick with bronchitis.  even good news there, she returned to school today after 3 days home in bed.  come on spring!  i know you are still far away for us here, but that little taste, even surrounded by snow, was very satisfying.  happy love thursday !

When I read your sentence - "lovin my new letterpress..." I thought holy cow Kristin bought a letterpress and she has it up and running and look she's already making amazing art, and then I took the link. :D I love your letter press too and your photo of it!
Spring will soon be here, hang in there!
