This last week the busy-ness included making plans for Easter dresses, taking some walks around the neighborhood, hosting a dinner with our cousins, (continued) working on shoe tying, formalizing plans for some spring planting and gardening and learning the chicken dance.

The second dress will appear here soon. It's special too because the material was something of a generational heirloom... more on that soon.

The weather has really influenced the time we've spent outside and inspired me to think more about gardening. I've got some plans in mind. We had some giant and overgrown shrubbery removed late last year, and I'm relishing the "clean slate" that I'm starting with and thinking most about blooms... a yellow tree peony maybe, a black iris, pinkish green hydrangea and some lungwort and glossy green european ginger as a ground cover. I have more fun with the planning than anything...

Oh, and the chicken dance... we had a great debate about whether it was the chicken or duck dance... we're of differing opinions with the small fry's Kindergarten teacher on that point. But we had a great time teaching the peanut the steps, and all got a good laugh out of an hour or so of polka music.
