Bunking in…

slide bunk

With three boys all sleeping in the same room, their choice, I’ve been contemplating bunk beds to free up some floor space.

It’s nice to see this bed in front of a window.  That would have to happen in our room.

I slept in a bunk bed in the sorority house in college.  Bottom bed.  I liked it better than sleeping on the single bed in the same room.  Every sister who passed through left some thoughts on the ceiling of the lower bunk.  Mostly things like, Angela loves David, Jenni and Lisa big and little forever…

And finally, this is really cool but I think it might be scary for sleeping!

It’s a gorgeous day here!  I’m off for a walk to enjoy the temps before the days get hot!

Happy bunking and enjoy the week.



Horray for Strawberry Season!


The berries are ready and they are gorgeous!


We had a glorious day to pick.  A bunch.  Of strawberries.


I can’t think of a better way to spend an afternoon.


It doesn’t take long to get your bucket full.


And then end the picking with ice cream!

I’m so glad it’s spring.  It feels so good to have the sun warm you head and shoulders.

Happy, happy spring everyone!


Favorite Book Friday


This is one of those we loved from the first reading.  I think we’ve had it at least three years now.  It always makes us laugh.

If I Built A Car, by Chris Van Dusen is catchy…


and smart,


and gorgeous to look at.  My boys love to read it and have it read to them.


It’s easy on the ears and delicious to the eyes.

Happy Reading!


Green on my mind…

Must be all the green that has finally taken hold of the landscape around here.

I can’t seem to get enough of the freshness of a simple green.

Hello world!

Thomas Jefferson said:

“Do you want to know who you are?  Don’t ask.  ACT. Acting will delineate and define you. ”


So well said.  Sounds so easy.  But for a thinker and a dreamer like me it’s the doing, the acting, the working that is difficult.

I have great ideas for everybody.  You should do this, you’d be great at that.  Why don’t you do more of this?  Yeah, yeah, come on it will be easy for you.

So, I’m taking my own advice.  Going to make 2014 the year of doing, of acting, of following through on all that talk.

And this is one of my action projects.  A blog focusing on the biggest focus of my life:  my three boys.

Here goes.  Thank you in advance for wishing me luck and sending good thoughts this way.
