feeling jaunty these fresh new january days.
i started doing yoga on new year's morn, and find that it puts me in more of a sparkly mood throughout the day.
the days are sunny and warm, sunny and warm, sunny and warm.
nothin in the forecast but....sunny and warm.
i try to wear sweaters, cause it feels cold inside the house, then i go out and start shedding layers immediately.
tonight, even though the air is cooling, after a warm day and being outdoors, i actually have that slight sweet smell of b.o (hope it doesn't gross you out, i kinda like it ;) that makes me feel so springtimey!
i think this renewed energy also comes from all that sweet vitamin D i'm getting from the gentle sun rays, reading outside on my days off and working on projects round the yard.
i was wearing rather a ho-hum outfit, but i felt so good i had to take pics anyway.
especially to show off my new favorite earrings and necklace, both christmas gifts.
mikie's girlfriend amber, a talented artist, made me these feather earrings that i am dying over.
and my mom got me the silver beaded necklace at a craft fair; i think it's moonstone. i am lovingly drawn to the triangle symbol lately.
i absolutely love wearing short dresses with boots and bare legs. it looks cute and feels free...but the weather is rarely just right for me to pull off this look. (usually i am sweltering in my boots and have to switch to sandals). hello, january! (!?)
and lots of cat pictures.
here is the household's youngest kit, tiny fern, (who yes, does resemble her old great grandpa c.p.) running around on the structure we built for the stage. she is quite the acrobat.
all the cats are LOVING this weather. it's all day, outside, running amok, playing together, then cozy nights exhausted.
bobey is king of the yard and castle.
and especially, his favorite playground, the ashes of the burn pile. it's like catnip for him!
the doors and windows were thrown open all day long.
joey and i worked on the patio, setting it up with little tables and chairs. we are ready for company, barbecues, and late night conversations under the twinkly white lights. won't you come over? you can spend the night in my little gypsy hut.
here's to a whimsical, magical, sweet, homey, ever-growing, sprouting and blossoming new year!!!
