they have a secret world in the twilight

i don't have much to talk about today. it's raining and overcast out (thank goodness for a sunny and dry weekend) and it's been 6 weeks since i broke my foot so i still feel like my life is basically on hold. but things have gotten much better, i only need to have my foot at heart level a few times a day (as opposed to having it raised 20+ hours/day the weeks after surgery) and i've been leaving the house on a regular basis. woohoo! i miss thrifting, estate sales, going for hikes and taking photos so much it hurts, but what're you gonna do.

well goodness, i don't mean to be such a downer today. here are some good things: getting lost in pinterest, dinner with good friends, getting care packages in the mail from my awesome sisters, sitting at a picnic table in the sun knitting while my sweet boyfriend brings me magnolia petals from my favorite trail at the arboretum, listening to this. yup, things aren't so bad.

hope you're having a lovely monday!

ps ~ forgot to mention a little guest post i did recently on poppytalk about one of my favorite things: mushrooms! also today is the beginning of spring colours week, the above polaroid was my contribution for today's color: green. it was taken at the japanese gardens last year.

till sunbeams find you

it's chilly and overcast here today, but the cherry blossoms are blooming like crazy and, on a personal note, i got my splint off! i'm wearing a boot now (which means i can take it *off* if i want - woohoo!) and i can see my foot for the first time in 3 1/2 weeks. ahhh, such a relief. still can't put any weight on it for a few more weeks, but i'll take what i can get.

lovely friends have been bringing me lunches and little gifts, which has been keeping me sane. and how lucky am i to somehow end up with that gorgeous springtime bouquet brightening up my home? along with the most delicious dinner ~ chelsea is the sweetest and i'm lucky to have her as a friend.

hope you're having a spring-y week!

life in technicolor

jan just posted a colorful guest post i did over at poppytalk ~ can you tell i was craving some color? not that i can complain, portland is definitely more colorful than a lot of places this time of year. speaking of colorful, i had a post-op appointment today. yikes, my poor foot is not a pretty sight! but everything appears to be healing as it should (and that icky foot is hiding in a splint for another week). hope you're having a great week!
