Layouts to share | CT

I have two new digital scrapbooking pages to share. I made them with Raspberry Limeade a new kit by Sweet Tomato Designs. It’s brand new today and you can read more about it on her blog – or jump right over to Funky Playground Designs where she has one of her stores.

ME + Spring | April
Stitched frame by Anna Aspnes

I always love the moment when the spring really takes over for the winter. When the snow is melted away and new sprouts are coming from the trees. That’s the time when I bring my cup of coffee with me outside. Licking some sun after the long and cold winter. And this spring, the spring of 2011, have been amazingly warm and sunny, so much that the birch already are green and beautiful a week before May even starts. I will enjoy this and keep spending some of my hours outside. The rain will come again , the chilly weather will be back. But right now the sun is here, the spring is in the making and everything thing wakes up to new life again. Even I can feel it.

Right now our spring is rather cold and cloudy. We could use some rain – to be honest, but I would like for it to come now and not at the weekend. Please?! After that I’m ready for warm spring weather again.

Spring has Sprung

I tend to spend a lot of my days indoors, due to a couple of things (mostly): First my working hours tend to be in my office or somewhere else inhouse. Secondly when I get back home, there are plenty of tasks to take care of, like laundry and dishes that needs washing, dinner in the making. But when spring finally comes around I run outside to soaking it all in.

A Saturday @ The Farm

Last Saturday (April 16th) my kid and I + my brother and his family visited The Farm.

Cousins @ the farm

My mom cooked us dinner (lovely fish dinner) and we spent the most of the afternoon outside in the beautiful spring weather. MT and his two cousins had fun (most of the time) running around, playing ball and discover nature. They also helped me cut a few branches for our Easter service on Palm Sunday.

My brother helped me with some light issues on my car and my SIL helped me make a wreath of thorns for our Easter service on Palm Sunday. In the evening there were coffee and cakes.

It was a really nice and relaxing day and I’m so glad we got to spend some hours together.

Thank you for looking! Have a great Monday 🙂

We’re going swimming at a pool and MT is over the top excited (it’s part of his birthday gift from me). Glad to spend some more time with him before work and school starts up again tomorrow.

Don’t tell my mom..

…but I let my kid put his bare feet into the cold river water on Monday. It was just too warm a day to tell him no, even though we are in April still (bathing season here starts by the end of June, usually).

First Dipping of the season

Over a day later there is still no cough to hear, so I think it went nicely. Ahem, just so you know, mom.
