snap it 'colourful'
Oh yay, Faith Hope & a Whole Lotta Love's Snap It this week is colourful, do i hear a hallelujah. I adore, love, breathe & live colour. I snapped these flowers at the first day of Floriade in glorious sunshine.
Weekends = freshly squeezed orange juice from the bounty of oranges my husband brings home (caveman style, sack over shoulder, beating chest "want juice") from the Farmer's Market. The rich pulp is so sweet & delicious this time of year, i made ice blocks for the children after our Saturday in the sun.
Thank goodness i make hay while the sun shines (literally - hay mulch from the chicken coop has been spread on the garden) as i got hail on the school run. Look at it hitting the centre sun roof. My husband even rang to see if i had thrown myself over the top of our new car to protect it?? Um, no, i stayed inside with a magazine & heated seat thanks!!
This darling girl, my treasured middle daughter, has just spent two days home with her mama - she has a really sore shoulder, she can't play sports & is completely deflated. We've had such a nice quiet time together, she never asks for days off or gets sick . . . we've done sushi, a movie & Lego . . . that is my children's trifecta of mama love!!
Loving the colour of Spring . . . fashion, flowers, food . . . just makes you feel happy. I wish i could rock coloured jeans, like i did back in year 8. My girls have pink, lemon & lime, mixed with pastels, sequins & primary colours, it all works so well, on them.
Are you introducing as much colour into your life as possible this time of year, Southern Hemisphere folks?? We're still waiting for our Araucana chicken to lay her Easter eggs, stay tuned, she's still settling in. Love Posie
