Give Me Dirt

This is me in Spring:

I love getting dirt under my nails and then I love coming inside and scrubbing it out with the Williams Sonoma Asian Plum Mandarin soap and the little nail brush. It's so gritty, so cleansing, so...dichotomous.

Calvin picked the above flowers just for me and requested that I bring them in and put them in a vase. Gives a whole new meaning to "bud vase".


I did a little of this last evening and have much more in my near future. My practically-professional photographer husband was photographing me unawares. Had I known, I would have done something with my hair! Put on a little make up!

If you look closely, you'll spot the J Crew clearance Wellies. Toldja.




Here's a shot of our home, just waking up to Spring. That's me in the background, hoisting some God-forsaken weed out of the flowerbed. I tackled all but the gigantic (think pumpkin-sized) thistle weed...you know, the real prickly, mean kind. In fact, that's the official name: Prickly Mean Thistle Weed. How do I go about getting rid of such an intruder? I was serious as a clogged drain when I said I'm winging this.

Mmmm...look what I found!


Hello, my pretties!


So glad you're back.
