it’s raining, it’s pouring, I’d rather be in bed snoring…

I know that’s not how it goes, but the rainy dreary weather has me longing for spring.  And for flip flops.  And for skirts.  And open windows.  I’m sure you feel the same, unless you live somewhere warmer than here and are already enjoying all of those things.

Up here in Central Oregon the sun usually does shine, but spring can be wet from time to time.  Right now is one of those times.

So when the girls and I stopped off at our favorite grocery store (at least in town) we couldn’t resist these primroses.  We each picked one. 


And since then we’ve been slowly doing what we can with what we have to add some color to the house.

A favorite quilt now sits on the comfy chair in the kitchen.  Our initials got a splash of paint.  The bouncy balls were collected and put in a dish.  The kids made some Kandinsky inspired art.  And I’ve been working on some little crochet flowers

And now we look longingly out the window, because we know spring will come and it will eventually stop raining/snowing/hailing/wind storming.  At least we pray it would.

Do you find yourself adding color to your surroundings this time of year?


  1. aww, the primroses look beautiful! I might need to get some here for us here in the Northwest Washington state...the weather is pretty cold and rainy and the flowers may brighten my mood!!! ;)

  2. well...it's snowing here in WI so I've gotta say I would happily take your rain! :) the primroses are beautiful and what a fun idea to put them together on a cake stand. bouncy balls in a bowl is a GREAT way to add color (and those are not hard to find around here!)

  3. so happy you stopped by my blog home!...after browsing your blog and I was so happy to see that we definitely "gel"... in many ways... and it put a big smile on my face when I saw your daughter and the gun post... love it and sooo true...


I love to hear from you! Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts with me.
