This year I got a little reflective about Mother’s Day and what it meant for me as a Mama to Judah, and also my own Mum.
Spring is very quickly turning to summer here in the Pacific Northwest and the weather has been just beautiful! My husband is over the moon happy that the next few days are going to be clear blue skies with over 80 degree weather. I am not as happy about it as I am more comfortable in the low 70’s, but I suppose I shouldn’t complain. It’s so much better than rain!
Oh babies, why do you grow so fast? It always amazes me how quickly babies – both human and animal – grow. Every parent out there sighs when they see baby photos of their kiddos at a younger age and thinks “where did the time go”? I do all the time.
I am very thankful however that my son has not grown up as quickly as our chicks do! Then I would cry a whole lot more. 🙂
Although we have had quite a bit of rain here in WA State lately, we have actually had quite a mild and sunny spring so far. Which is great news for our bees here at Scarlett Homestead.
It’s that adorable time of year again, where so many of us either have broody chickens who are sitting on their eggs, or we are buying our spring chicks from a local farm store or chicken farmer.
Toady is my son Judah’s 4th birthday. As everyone always says, “the days are long, but the years go fast”, and so it is, probably the truest statement I have ever realized in my life.
Earlier this week, we got our first snowfall out here in the Pacific Northwest. Every area got different amounts, but here in Arlington, we got 9 inches over about a day and a half. This is sort of rare for our area. We do get a little snow every year around this time but not nearly as much as we did this time. I was as excited as our three year old!
I was going to name this blog something like ‘Tender Is The Night’ as a nod to both the tender beauty of wildlife in their natural habitat at night, and one of my favorite writers, F. Scott Fitzgerald. But then I thought about it, and decided that was probably a little to deep for what this post is really about.
A few nights ago my Father in Law called and was talking to my husband, and I could tell immediately by Rob’s responses in the conversation that something was up with one of our horses. I have a sixth sense for things like that and I wasn’t wrong this time.
