Little Things Thursday

It’s amazing how much change can occur within just a few weeks.  My kids have been longing for warm days to play outside.

Not only has spring arrived in full force, but lately it seems summer has as well. Cool days have turned to near 90 degrees.  The kids are hot, sweaty, dirty, and happy.

My garden has been planted and new plans are being made for expansion.  I think everything feels life returning and it feels good to be physically tired at the day’s end from activity.

These little things are restoring us this week.

What’s restoring you?

  2. It would be nice to have spring instead of going from 50 to 86 and 80% humidity…

  4. I remember those winter to summer days well… so typical in DC (and drove everyone mad)! Alas here in Paris, the days are only now warming up and we’re all having to get reacquainted with warm sunny days because it’s been so long since we’ve had a string of them. I’m really enjoying all your film shots, this one is particularly lovely…

  5. Seasons are Nature’s ways of keeping us appreciative of the wonder that surrounds us daily and that we quickly take for granted. We too have had some crazy ups and downs with the temperature and the rivers have yet to reside back to normal levels making every extended rain and threat of flooding. Spring! (with hues of summer and occasional reminders of winter)

    loving these film shots.

  10. I really like the mood this photo evokes.

  11. I know, right? I was just saying to my husband that it seems like we’ve skipped spring and went right into summer!

  12. I absolutely LOVE that image! It gives the facade that he is hidden within the walls of a gentle rain shower! We have had some pretty warm temps here as well…I fear we might just skip right over spring and head straight into summer.

  13. We are getting winter or probably real April weather but a bit colder, finally. We didn’t get a winter in Utah. They are saying we are in a drought but it rained and rained and rained and partly snowed yesterday. We need a great storm like that once a week til June and we’ll be ok here in Utah.

    Your wonderful weather report via me. lol

    The photo of your child is wonderful {nice effect with a literal filter, lol}
    take care Kim!
