Randomness of Life

Mary Ann 22mo. old, our little clown!
January....
February....
Now March........
And it's almost gone!!!!!

We have been busy since the new year began, you know the everyday life kind of busy. Thankfully not so busy that we haven't had time to make some memories and have some fun. I have taken lots of pictures since January and have "much" from the heart to share, I just need to set aside a bit of time to post the pictures, happenings, and thoughts. I have worked today on getting pictures uploaded to the blog for several post. Now that the pictures are loaded I can come back and put words to the post...like in the next few days :)




We were thrilled to welcome in Spring this week, and we are enjoying the longer days. We have had a few days of warm weather, but most of the days have continued to be cold/cool, windy, and damp. It hasn't held back the flowers from breaking through and making their appearance, nor has it hindered the pear trees from bursting forth in full white blooms. The new season is springing forth all around us, this time of year gets me inspired and motivated....and thinking about gardening!







With the new of spring brings on a different type of eating. Winter months we eat heavier foods, you know, comfort foods :) This year we became ready for spring/summer meals before spring even came. The girls have been trying out new recipes, to bring some zest back into our dinner menu. On a few nights we have eaten breakfast for dinner....in our house breakfast is always big hit for dinner with the boys, and it's a great standby. I'm so looking forward to spring/summer veggies and lots of fresh raw eating...Yum!





We Munck Ladies have had various projects going on. None of us are working on the same project, as we all have different interests and talents. It's always neat to see what direction their interest take them.

We had 2 birthdays this month Elizabeth and Wesley....I absolutely love putting together birthday parties for my children. I have pictures from Wesley's birthday and more from Elizabeth's birthday loaded and waiting on me, those post are coming soon :)




Work at the farm is coming along nicely. We have liked the winter months for working on privet, brush, and woodsy growth because the poison ivy isn't out and threatening to take hold of the Munck workers as it's victim. With warmer days coming we know it's just a matter of time before the poison ivy will claim it's first patch of skin for the season :(






OUT WITH THE OLD.....


.....IN WITH THE NEW


On the farm we are restoring the yellow house and have exciting plans for the house. Arthur has gotten much accomplished since January. He has a great team with many willing and able hands. Being pregnant I haven't been one of those hands, so, I try to encourage from the sidelines. Arthur and Elizabeth are both visionaries who act on their vision and work well together. They have come up with some fantastic plans, that I now see unfolding. Each time I walk in the house I'm amazed at how far it's come in such a short period of time. There are so many pictures and stories I could share about the farm, it could have it's own blog...who has time for that, not me! One day I'll have to get busy on writing some post about the farm.


Life is happening, days are passing, and we are seeking to make the most of our time :)

I just love reading about you all here on your blog. I can't wait to see what you all do to your house. :) It is soooo much fun to plan projects like that. As we wait for our precious babe I think of ALL the stuff I have planned to do and hope to get it all accomplished before baby while continuing with school and life too. I am too lazy to sign out of Salinn's account so I am just signing my name. :) ~ Trust you are having a good weekend so far. ~ Nikki

The farm looks lovely! Being an Arizona native, my eyes are sometimes starved for the sight of greenery.
Those discarded bricks are great--you might be able to repurpose them into a low wall or planters.

Best,

Jen

Jen,
We are keeping all the old wood and brinks, like you said they can be repurposed. We can't restore the farm house completely back to original, but plan on using all the old material that we can. This has been such a fun project.
