Here’s hoping it will be the Merry Month of May. Here’s a real oldie but goodie.
We are still waiting to see when our stay home orders will be lifted. In the meantime we have simple pleasures to enjoy. This new addition in our home makes me smile every time I walk by it.
I’ve always wanted a cabinet similar to a Welsh Cabinet that I could display my plates on.
This pine cabinet has some fun accents. We bought the cabinet at a second hand shop in the city of Colville called The Red Barn.
When we brought it home we applied a lot of elbow grease to clean it up. Trust me when I say a lot of elbow grease.
Pure enjoyment to pick some of my favorites to display. To make it even more busy I’ve added about 28 of my Beatrix Potter Figurines on the plate rack, too. Future photo coming.
On these days where we are stuck at home I’m so thankful and happy to get little sneak peeks on what’s going on with our kids during their isolation time and I copy their photos to enjoy.
Our youngest “Coast Kids” working from home. Thankful that they both still have jobs. In her current job Katie has always worked from home so this is nothing new for her. The new thing is having Andrew work from home for some of the time. He has been going into the office to do things he can’t from home. He works at a company that is deemed essential.
Our oldest “Coast Kids” are enjoying walks most days and they send us photos which we are so thankful for. A friend knowing their love for our Sounders Soccer team sewed Sounders Face masks for them! Josh owns a business with partners and they have been able to keep all their employees and even hired new ones. He is still working hard and Laura works as a support for her family.
Our middle kids who live 8 miles from us are enjoying driveway walks and any time they can work in the garden. Jamie is coming up with lots of creative activities for our dear grands to enjoy. Our son Dan still works as he is considered an essential worker.
It’s easy to social distance in the country as it’s hard to see the other properties close to them.
On Thursday Addy decided a foot soak would be nice. Her mom set her up nicely with a potty chair just the right height.
Making the most of our isolation days!
Dear continues working on his shop when the weather is dry and above freezing!
I’m back to mowing and weeding and getting a good dose of vitamin D!
What are you doing at home to keep your sanity? I know a lot of friends who are baking bread and several who are keeping sourdough starts alive and baking sourdough bread items including pancakes and bagels!
Happy May day!
“Come, my soul, put on your springtime clothes and gather garlands of heavenly thoughts.”
