on a good day, you can feel my love for you...
yesterday was a good day...
i worked at the bookery.
in my "country daycare teacher" outfit....
with a dorky frolicsome mood up my sleeve.
i had many visitors as i cleaned books in my cozy spot by the sci fi section.
especially these beauties!
it was my first time meeting my friend ruebi's baby nico. he is even more beautiful and sturdy and glowing in real life than in this photo. she dresses him in big chunky old fashioned sweaters that she calls "orphan" clothes.
he is warm and rosy cheeked and smiley, the perfect baby.
they were fresh from being snowed in and without power up at addie's house in the mountains.
good-natured and adventurous about it all, they sort of loved it.
another set of visitors were my mom and her boyfriend jack. they are getting a new place together and consolidating and narrowing down their things.
so she gifted me her whole collection of tasha tudor books!
plus it just so happened that right before she came in with her books, i had finally laid my hands upon this one (my favorite) that amber posted about so wonderfully a while back.
marma also gave me a bunch of old old children's books, slightly tattered, but oh-so-lovely.
and some ladies magazines from the 1950s.
then i spent the evening like this:
sharing pitchers of pale ale and boysenberry at the local brewery, hearing stories and laughing our asses off.
i felt like inviting the whole world into my heart.
these hills are soooo soooo green and my plum tree is blossoming just like milla's.
i hope that means we'll have fruit again this year.
i am full of a rambunctious energy.
despite the storms, i think maybe in spirit spring is really here!
