The characters, while in a constant state of flux, remain a constant these days. At this point I'm starting to miss my daughter Clover, it's been awhile now since we've seen her. Not that I haven't enjoyed hanging out with these folks, as well as, Mary Poppins, Olivia the Pig, Goldilocks, Peter Rabbit's Mom, the list is ever growing, while this obsession of hers appears to have no end in sight.
Hmm, it's a wonder I haven't felt like putting much thought into dressing myself lately ;)
By the way, have you ever tried to explain to a determined three-year-old that putting things like say a floor lamp or a hat stand (nevermind the fact that we don't own either of these things) into the thrifted floral tote you gave her to use as her Mary Poppins carpet bag is just not going to happen? If so, apparently I could use some helpful tips on how to do so effectively.
I have been enjoying getting used to my new camera while capturing Clover's sartorial shenanigans though. I need to get a tripod sturdy enough to use it for self-timer shots. Assuming I will one day find the energy to get back to some sartorial shenanigans of my own, that is.
With the long run of spring-like weather we just had, our backyard hasn't been the muddy standing water swamp that it usually is this time of year. Yay! We've been letting the chickens out of their coop to roam free more. They are LOVING IT, and as you can see I've been following them around with the camera some too.
Now, lest you should think I caught Clover in a rare un-costumed moment, the red polka dot dress and black pants were remnants of the Minnie Mouse outfit she wore to pre-school that day. Her fuzzy white ears hat was involved with a red ribbon headband and a big black bow. Seriously, the fun never stops ;)
Sorry about the sparser than usual posting. Having trouble finding the time and energy for blog life lately. Bear with me, I'm sure I'll pull myself out of this slump soon enough!
I actually did manage to get a decent little outfit going the other day, involving a favorite new thrift find, and Clover and I went out for a lovely little hike. I even managed to take some pics. I'll get those posted soon. Until then, hope you're all well :)
