I have to admit, things have gotten a little crazy around here, what with immigration paperwork, social workers, vaccinations, freelance work and book launch issues...so I have yet to find the time to put up the post I've been meaning to put up (lots and lots of pictures!) so here's a quick view of what's going on around the house instead. I just found that star that you can see on the wall...I've been wanting one of those, and just found them (for super cheap...bonus!) randomly today while running other errands. I got one for Flynn's room too. You can't tell in this picture but the allium we planted last fall are starting to open into big, round purple starburts, which is very exciting!
There's my star again. Yeah, I'm kinda into it! All of this is "the fun part" of the housecleaning we've been doing in preparation for hosting our new social worker, who will stop by tomorrow afternoon.
Our kitchen: cluttered but cozy. I like a kitchen that looks like it's used well. We enjoy our food and make a big deal of our meals, and it shows.
I threw Flynn's room together a bit hap-hazzardly for the benefit of the social worker. I haven't had time to get to either the canvases or the school desk, so instead I put up a poster of "Tintin au Tibet" which I particularly love.
I've been meaning to construct a closet rail to replace the middle shelf, so that I can hang all the pretty little dresses...but so far that project has also taken a back seat. I did manage to sort all of her clothes by age, however. An exercise which clearly demonstrated the fact that we have too many clothes for the 2T range, and not enough for the 9-12 month range. Sigh.
And on a completely unrelated note: DUCKIES!!!! The first baby ducklings of the year on Sloan's lake. PLUS...a turtle! It doesn't get any better than that.
Does it strike anyone else as strange that we have pelicans in Denver? I don't know where they go in the winter, but they come back every spring - eight of them. Always eight. I think it must be the same eight, and this lake must be their regular vacation home.
Here they are in front of the skyline. Odd, I tell you!
