our wood pile is growing.
after a few truckloads and a couple of failed attempts, we're hoping to stay nice and cozy this winter.
p.s. i was reading designmom today, and a sentence from this post jumped off the page, right into my heart.
"sometimes, all you need is a person to bounce ideas off and respond with confidence."

aryn found a fun site on youtube with lots of tutorials. she even talked me into letting her paint my toenails... after watching this one:
we didn't have the orange color, so she used purple. it didn't quite turn out like the video, but i think she had fun practicing!

these are the wild turkeys that have been roaming our neighborhood.
early in the morning, we usually get to see them in the horse field on the way to school. later we see them running through the different neighbors' yards.
it is such an unexpected treat to see. (this is the first year since we've lived here that we've seen the turkeys.)
i think it's a mommy with nine not-so-little babies. it causes me to reflect on my own five wild turkeys!
and i just want to share a wonderful blog i've been reading since april...Schlitzohren. i love her beautiful style.
