When I was dreaming up this idea
in my mind the sun was shining on the water
the grass was green
the kids and I were having a picnic
the birds were chirping
a squirrel stopped by for a chat
bambi walked by in the background
and Snow White was singing to the bunnies…
and then I woke up…
and realized I live in Michigan
and it’s February
and 8 degrees.
What? You don’t want to hang out here in the snow and read a book?
There’s a hat just in case the sun makes an appearance :)
So Think Spring like really really hard
and you can imagine how pretty it would have been with the sparkling blue lake in the background
instead of the frozen tundra – it would have been the perfect vignette to display my cute little sign.
You can also imagine my neighbor looking out the window while I tie empty soup cans to his apple tree (thanks neighbor!) in my snow pants…and scary ski mask…camera in tow…
I think by now they know I’m a little nutty :)
It’s still kinda beautiful even if it wasn’t exactly what I had planned.
Oh and here is the fun sign I painted in it’s actual spot in our house, because I’m not quite nutty enough to leave it outside for the squirrels to enjoy…I had an extra hunk of wood lying around the house and I used craft paint and a sharpie marker to quick draw this cute little sign.
So it wasn’t quite the sunny picnic I envisioned (I actually couldn’t even talk anyone else into coming outside with me) but it was fun to dream up anyways…
