I haven’t been much for words the past few days. I’ve been enjoying the sunshine and the spring breezes and the scent of whatever kind of bushes have exploded in bloom all over town. I’ve also been doing quite a bit of spring cleaning and crafting.
A good deal of Sunday was spent chasing and catching bugs with my nephew. I have a butterfly net I got ages ago for a dollar, and just thrifted a jar with a huge magnifying glass on the top specifically made for viewing insects up close.
Let me tell you, a biology enthusiast and a little boy can have a whole lot of fun out in the sunshine catching bugs. We caught roly-polies, moths, mosquito hawks, and even a really gorgeous butterfly to view. He made an excellent little helper and enjoyed setting the bugs free with a shout of “set them FREE” every time.
Other than that it’s mostly been housework and crafty projects coming along bits at a time. Embroidery is my new latest obsession and it’s been a nice way to take a break from the stress of cleaning and organizing.
I’ve been very color and texture minded recently though, and it’s not translating well into words yet. But I’m getting there.
