Greetings from the middle of the week...

Thank you for all the lovely Birthday wishes. Thanks to my beautiful family and sweet friends I had an amazingly relaxing and fun filled day which is just what I needed. There were a few goodies from Anthropologie thrown in(see the cute skirt?), a new journal(much needed), a bit of encaustic paint(what a gorgeous color!), a milk frother(love it) and a less complicated and totally awesome mandoline (thanks Mom) and a new book which may come in handy soon. We are taking out the sandbox in the photo and building a special little something in the space behind it. Can you guess what it is? I'm very excited about getting the garden boxes back in business after our snowy mishap which claimed the lives of the blue lake beans (rabbits also managed to eat most of the rainbow chard). The radishes, beets and carrots have sprouted and are almost ready to be thinned and yesterday I picked up some organic seeds for micro greens and mixed baby greens which I'm going to plant today. Phoebe is on a 3-day class trip and both boys are home with the same miserable cold I have but a little fresh air and sunshine will do us all some good in our sneezy, sniffly condition. I hope Spring is ready to stick around for real this time : )
