~ Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life ~
Every Thursday, here at Like Mother, Like Daughter!
I got curtains up in the dining room! In the eat-in kitchen, too, but no picture of that yet. (I put some up in our bedroom months ago, because I’m really on top of things. The rest of the windows are still waiting with their bare blinds for a little lovin’.)
I was just playing around with my camera when I took this photo, not really thinking of it as a “curtains” shot. Otherwise I would’ve fixed them so they didn’t look like a three-year-old has taken it upon himself to open them first thing when he wakes up every morning. Which, of course, he has. Not that I’m complaining!
Curtains are hard. Such a commitment. So much mental energy. But I do try to get them up, even if they can’t be perfect — to me, it makes the room feel so much warmer and lived-in. I feel like I’ve really committed to a space when I hang curtains in it, and I only have so long to commit to a space before we have to start moving out again.
Otherwise I’d totally procrastinate longer.
Two days after I took this photo, we had a big ice storm here, during which I learned that there is such a thing as ThunderSleet.
Mostly, though, it’s been feeling a lot like spring.
Give her time. She will be a worthy opponent before long.
Oh wow. That’s one big little wrinkly foot! She would stay in the bath forever if I let her, and would come out looking like this all over.
(We called this phenomenon “hot dog toes/fingers” in our family. Is that a thing? Or do you call it something different?)
