Spring is in the air... I think, maybe but probably not.

So we have been having some gloriously warmer days.  This fact has put a little spring in my step.  And given me a renewed energy that has been MIA all winter.  With a glimpse of spring in the air - means spring cleaning, right?

With windows and doors wide open and beautiful warm fresh air coming in, deep cleansing and clearing out has begun.  Lots of it... always so good for the soul.

With the recommendation from my wise friend, Renee Plains, I've been listening and working through this book. So far so good...

                                                        Waterfront drop off                      Corks race last week                                  Green garden

This weekend we decided to cancel our hiking trip, it wasn't an easy call to make because we were letting people down and because we love hiking. But after the week we had, it was a blessed decision.  Being home was just what my family needed.

The girls are busy!
With assignments, tests, school derbies, cycle races, homework and social events, we pretty much played taxis service all Friday afternoon and night and most of Saturday too.  But mostly in between life, we were home.  And I can't tell you how much I loved that.

I love her.
 Some of September #1FaceaDay

I think I might be addicted to making squiggles and marks.
I might even consider doing the whole of September #1FaceaDay in squiggly graphite.
Just for something different, plus I'm loving the ease of it.

As for spring - I know it's always wishful thinking.
Today is pouring with rain and it's cold.
But I will hang onto the few good days in between because they feel like hope.

And we can always do with a bit of hope.

Have a beautiful week!


  1. I seriously need to slow down this weekend - lief is just way too busy. Love your sketches and am planning to do Konmari

    1. I think you will love the principals. I hope you find it as liberating as I have. Hope you find plenty of quiet this weekend <3.
