Spring at our Farmhouse...

It's that time of year when I start getting home and garden A.D.D.

More than usual.

I'll weed the flower beds! 

I'll plank above the fireplace... 

I'll clean off the back porch!

I'll go through all of my kids' drawers and closets.



And then, reality comes knocking at my front door...

My children are hungry.

The laundry has piled up.

Baseball season has started.

When is the last time I vacuumed?

The chickens need clean water and we're still missing a hamster (you can't make these things up).

I'll just put some flowering branches in a pitcher and call it good...



Can you relate? Tell me you can (even if you can't).


The only thing I've gotten to so far is weeding out two of our boys' drawers.

I didn't think you'd be too interested in seeing pictures of that.

Instead, I thought I'd show you how happy our chickens look in the spring sunshine...


So happy, that they are laying eggs like nobody's business.


And while I can't really pass off our cherry blossom trees blooming as a DIY, they are prettier than anything my two hands could create...


The upside of the downside of all that laundry is what is happening outside our laundry room window...


And with these amazing blooms off the porch (for which I can take no credit), who, besides me, will really notice the mountain of abandoned toys and miscellaneous gardening equipment on the porch?


In the words of a very popular Disney movie, sometimes you just have to, "Let it go! Let it go! Can't hold it back any more..."

I hope you had a blessed Easter weekend. For those of you who follow along on Instagram and were wondering (thank you!), this bunny surprise happened yesterday...


I'm enjoying watching them enjoying their new little chocolate bunny. ;)


Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Do you get A.D.D. in spring too? What kinds of things are on your list? Some bunny wants to know. ;)
