This is my view for a good part of the day.
It is a favorite space for me as I spend a lot of time in this area. It is my work space.
I prepare a lot of meals here. I wash a lot of dishes. These are the faces that look back
at me when I as I go on about my day. The window over my kitchen sink is home to a small
group of happy little foxes. When your last name is Fox it's easy to have fun with it and
end up with a few of these. Foxes are so popular these days that I find them in the stores
quite often. Usually in the fall they pop up quite a bit. I always have to fight the urge to
bring every single one of them home.
Being that Spring has newly arrived and I have Spring fever, I have added into to the mix a couple of small planters.
This little monkey came from WM. He came with grass seed that grows like hair. Although he is not a fox I think he feels right at home nestled in among the other little critters. His hair grows fast. I think he'll be due a hair cut soon.
I didn't plant this one. I picked up this plant at our local supermarket a few months back for almost nothing. It was fall themed and was on clearance so home it came with me. It had a scruffy scarecrow attached to it but that part ended up in the trash. I only kept the little basket with the plant. I hate to pass these up when they're marked down. I always think if they don't sell they'll end up in the trash. So I like to think I rescued it. The fox plant stake came from WM as well.
This one came from Family Dollar and it's sunflowers. These popped up really quick. I think it took only three days for them to break through. I'll need to seperate these soon but they'll go in my back yard later.
We had a special birthday over the weekend. Our son Michael turned nineteen. He is very special to us. He is our middle child and our only son. Being the only boy he gets a lot of love from his sisters. He is a freshman at college studying Electronic Engineering so he is quite smart too.
We celebrated by taking the family out to eat. It seems to be a birthday tradition in our family to go out to eat. I cook a lot and family meals are usually at home so going out is always a treat.
Here he is enjoying his birthday ice cream.
It's hard to believe this is his last year as a teenager. It seems like he was only a little boy just the other day. I wish time would do me a favor and slow down a little bit.
Loving our full life.
Til next time,
