Or let's just look for fallen bird nests and feathers. Continue reading

Long time, no House of Spot. I know, I know… It’s been a bit of a wrecking ball over here with no time to type. If I could sum up the last few months in a few pithy words it would be “Just get this kid graduated.” This, of course,... Continue reading

Sorry for the radio silence over here at The House of Spot. I assure you though, it is a crazy whirlwind. If you think "end of the school year" activities are crazy, then just throw in a graduate. More to come in the following week! Continue reading

I drive past Pacific Wool and Fiber every day while dropping my kids off to school. And every day I tell myself I should go in there. And then... I don't. What a dummy, right? Love the loom project! Thank you for the inspirational nudge!

It is a beautiful day. Bridget has decided to go out into the garden. There are many, many weeds. The garden needs to be tidied up. Watch Bridget pull weeds. Pull, Bridget, pull. Weeds, weeds, weeds. Oh, look! More weeds! Pine needles are everywhere. Sweep, Bridget, sweep. Sweep, sweep…uh, oh…... Continue reading

Ah, Easter. In the Pacific Northwest sometimes it’s lovely, most of the time it’s not. This year is was pretty darn nice for it being so early on the calendar. Sadly our original plans with friends were canceled due to a death in their family, so I pulled this rabbit... Continue reading

Here we are at Trillium Lake on Mt. Hood, but just for the day. This lake is just past Government Camp and Timberline Lodge and we’ve skied it many times before. Years ago. Before kids and with only Dalmatians in tow. I would keep them leashed in the parking lot... Continue reading

Don't these look absolutely beautiful? The Daughters did such a great job on them this year. What a lucky mom I am, right? The bummer was that apparently I didn't boil them long enough (for the first time ever in a million-gazillion years) and it turned out that they were... Continue reading

Ah, yes. More college visits. This particular college, Willamette University, was absolutely lovely. This Daughter thought the same as well. Situated directly behind the Oregon's Capital building (which you can see in the photo directly above) just added to its stateliness. The grounds, the buildings, the curriculum. Wow. We have...

Well, it gets easier and then, really, it doesn’t. Remember when you watched them walk into the elementary school on the first day of kindergarten? It’s like that but worse. Like to the tenth power. And yet… it’s exciting. We visited two other campuses this past summer with This Daughter... Continue reading

Every needle, every branch, every twig is covered in icy, treacherous beauty. It comes crashing down under it's own weight breaking the quiet silence that lays like a blanket over the valley. It's a beauty the trees can only bear for so long. It's a day you're grateful to experience... Continue reading

Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And never brought to mind? Should auld acquaintance be forgot, And auld lang syne. For auld lang syne, my dear, For auld lang syne, We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet, For auld lang syne. —Robert Burns Continue reading

Photo: The Oregonian archives I woke up in the middle of the night to huge wind gusts and rain beating down so hard against the house and windows I thought for a moment it had actually made it in. I have to admit it was a little scary. It’s the... Continue reading

OLD DOGS DO NOT DIE We have a secret, you and I, That no one else shall know, For who, but I can see you lie, Each night, in fireglow? And who but I can reach my hand Before we go to bed, And feel the living warmth of you... Continue reading

Apparently they let just about anyone become an adult these days. *poof!* How did that go by so fast? What happened? I only have these cupcakes {{made with the salt of my tears}} to share with you. Continue reading
