a marshmallow day

The house groans and yawns under the weight of thick snow and I am happy to have my little family together safe under one roof. I dream of warm spring days and wonder if we will be in our dream house by then, but for now I am content and happy in this little house in which we began our journey into a family. The home that has held us safe and warm for four and a half years. She is friendly and familiar though flawed.

Yes, I wander into thereness but surrender to today's hereness. Today the snow is glorious and winter is welcome to stay for just a little while longer.

sewing (just a glimpse today, but full details tomorrow)
peanut butter chocolate chip cookies
letters of of gratitude
toys in the water dish
mismatched socks
a sleeping gnome
bouncy bird
yummy fabric
lentil soup
plaid jammie pants
the waltons

a good day in the house of the bird and gnome indeed.

go gently + be wonderful



  1. Oh, hooray! I love finding a new blog to love. I smiled at the mismatched socks picture, and the animals in the water dish...I have a toddler too, and the quickest remedy for crankiness is a bowl of water on the floor with a miniature teapot, some animals, and a spoon! Your photos are breathtaking.

  2. Loving the photographs. For some reason I had the impression you were in England but obviously you are a neighbor to the North judging from those Maple Leaf stamps! I love Canada. Anyhow, I just wanted to say thank you for putting thank link to The Year of Choice on your page. The timing was is just what I am needing for some much needed growth. Getting the sense you are doing much better than before..Happy for you!

  3. Loving the pictures. Looks like you are feeling much better. Thanks for posting that link to a Year of Choice. Much needed.

  4. :)
    Looks and sounds like a perfect day.
