it's always a good reminder that a shift in perspective can change everything.

over the weekend, colden got to attend a little workshop at home depot with his cousin. i hoped to share his project, and i asked him if i could take pictures of it and blog about it. he said no, and that he didn't like my blogging. i was somewhat taken aback. i had been enjoying getting back to this space, but am now questioning that. i plan on cutting back on any computer time when i am with colden because i think that is what he dislikes, however, i am also considering that he may not want me to share about him here. any thoughts?

little bundle

a dear friend of mine is expecting and i couldn't resist making a few things for her wee one to come! a rainbow jingle ball, of course, my favorite stay-on booties, plus a little friend for baby. for mama, i also got a necklace here. they are designed for babies to tug and i love them. what are your favorite things for baby?

rise up o flame
i love having a fire. there is something so magical about the flickering flames, the scent that seeps into your clothes and hair, and then my favorite part - prodding and poking it with a stick. i also love burning bits of paper with fears or wishes written. last month we had a fire in which i burned some of colden's old broken (irreparable) wooden toys and baskets, thanking them for their service. this time we burned the scraps from the building of our new hen house and the pieces of old coop. there's something so wonderful and cleansing in these fires. i hope to have many more this season.

zucchini transformed

this cake. delicious. my freezer is still full of zucchini, and boy, does this elevate it beyond its age.chocolate zucchini cake
i agree with you, stephinie, it needs no frosting. (however, my husband did eat it with goat milk yogurt and said, "it's almost like frosting!" ha!)
with a fork
we all loved it. down to the very last crumbs. (which we squished together and ate.) we will definitely be making this again.
