the PINK cowgirl boots

She got them for Christmas from her Great-Grandmother...
and they are just too much fun not to photograph.

All alone amongst them...

Found this single tulip with the daffodils the other day...beautiful bright pinkish-red, standing all alone amongst them.

So Matt and I went to Starbucks with Syd Saturday morning as a treat to ourselves. We are actually really good about making coffee at home and not indulging in the fancy stuff too often anymore. Well, we ordered a milk for Sydney and it came in this pint-sized coffee cup...that I will admit is totally adorable, but slightly sickening to watch your 2.5 year old drink from. Why you ask? Because it makes me immediately imagine her future coffee I swore I would never have...and now, it's a daily endeavor.

Just made me wonder if Starbucks marketing was already thinking of the little ones they could rope in later if they got them started now just using the cups for the non-coffee drinks. Or the more realistic reason could actually be that they don't carry milk in anything but the large gallon jugs...and this is all they have to offer it in!

Ohhhhh WELL . . .

Matt and I thought we would tear out the small patio that sits at the bottom of our deck today. It it in a rather odd spot that didn't make too much sense, so we figured, lets take it out and seed it with new grass. And when we got it off...we found this.

An 8-10 Foot wide, 30 (ish) Foot deep well. A well that has probably been here since around the time the house was built in 1930. A well that we hope was just for spring water...and not sewage. A well that we now want to turn in to a RAINWATER BASIN to help nourish our flowers and garden for years to come. A piece of history that may still be usable in a very sustainable way! I'm excited, yet overwhelmed. What I thought would be a simple task...isn't as simple as we thought! More details to come as we figure out what and how to deal with it!
