Toby and I did a little "project" today....
We've been waiting for a beautiful sunny day like today for so long...
and once we got little Finn to down for his nap, we whipped out our paintbrushes and got to work!
There's just nothing quite like painting in the sunshine.
It's my "happy place" :)
And I couldn't be happier with the results! The look on Toby's face when he saw that I'd given our "masterpiece" pride of place on the living room mantel was priceless! :)
He was so cute, working away at the painting, all down to business in his painting jeans. I wish I'd taken a picture, but sadly, I was just having too much fun.
It's the perfect pop of colour that I've been craving.
I decided to try it standing up "tall" on the mantel....but I'm not sure if it looks grand, or weird. What do you think? Should I turn it over onto its side? I sort of like how it makes the ceiling appear higher.
Just look at all his cute little swirls and splatters :)
And to add even more delight to our day.....we discovered a cute little chubby mama robin has made her nest under our deck.
And look what we found when we peeked inside....!
Aren't they so beautiful? We were careful not to touch, or get mama robin too scared....and she's back on her little nest right now :)
Toby said "Mom...how did she know that there was a dragon at this house, that will help her protect her eggs?...I'm so glad that she chose our house instead of the neighbour's"
He said that first thing tomorrow morning, he's going to go and listen to see if he can hear any baby birdies. Or any tapping on the eggs, from the deck above ;)
These little "muffins" (as they're often referred to as) are the source of so much fun, and just about as much exhaustion. They are full of life and beans and craziness.
Here they are wearing their hockey gear....in the spirit of the playoffs :)
I hope you've all had a wonderful day!
I know we did :)
