Flowers. Sunshine. Open windows. Sandboxes. Thunderstorms. Rainbows. Grilled food.
I’ve mentioned to my husband time and time again that a beautiful day seems to make all my worries disappear. I love having the windows open during the days. Peter has caught on and leaves me a wide open window in the breakfast nook every morning. We have a fairly quiet neighborhood in the mornings, and having the outside air inside makes for a good start to my morning.
With the relatively mild temperatures right now, it’s good to be outside as much as we can. The boys love the sand box right now. We bought Case a little bike with training wheels at a garage sale two weekends ago, and the newness hasn’t worn off yet. Cole, my one year old, just likes to be a mess. He’s our little adventurer, and it’s hard to bring him in without mud, or sand, or something caked all over his little hands and feet.
The long hours outside bring long hours of sleep for the boys. They’ve been sleeping in and taking long naps recently, and that leaves me plenty of time for sewing right now. My favorite colors and patterns in quilts usually include low volume blues, pinks, yellow, and greens. I always use multiple shades of white, and some gray and bits of black make their way into my quilts regularly too. In my mind, these colors are perfect for spring and summer.
