a day in the life, photos


quilts and grass and rain

photos, stories, words


^ i made a quilt for a friend who’s having a baby… and had a photoshoot with it outside.




^ grass.

i’m so glad mom taught me how to quilt.

and, our garden seems to be doing okay after the big rainstorm we had.   the ground is still rather damp, though, so i didn’t water today.  and i try to miss the mud under the swing when i’m swinging.

kid-sitting and…jumping?

photos, stories, words

i babysit these adorable kids that i just love.

how rylee writes is just precious.  how she forms the letters and numbers is so cute.  but i bet i probably was like that when i was first learning.

and i don’t know if you can see it very well, but her E at the end of LOVE  is like 2 1/2 inches long.  i love it.


and of course, while they were napping, i went outside and took pictures of myself jumping.  one does that every time you babysit, right?

but this time i had a purpose.  my cousin mary’s birthday.

i love my face in this one.  jumping off playground equipment makes great photos, but i wanted to land on land- not shovels or slides.


i have another one that’s similar to this one, but i’m looking down.  i was jumping basically onto my camera, and didn’t really want to come down feet first on it.
