1. There is always color. My little orchid here keeps blooming, just when I think it is dead, here she is.
2. There are, oh maybe, three hundred and sixty…two and a half days that you feel guilty if you are indoors too long.
3. I can grow my own pineapple.
4. There are interesting wild creatures everywhere. Not for everyone, but I love them.
5. This doesn’t get old.

2.coil pot-clothes line, embroidery floss. Takes longer than I thought, but love the function.
3.origami- definitely planning on perfecting my folding this year.
4.felt animal-felt, embroidery floss. This elephant is the only one worth a photo but the kids love them.
5.recycled containers-Washi paper tape, cardboard boxes. Great for the kids to tote around their collections in.

What we brought: walk

Walking the walk. Long walks, short walks, just get out of the front (or back) door. Trying to keep it simple, and everyone happy..

12 months of practice and patience.

Each month of 2014 I am going to use this space to focus on one thing at a time and practice taking photos.
