I Hate A Tease.

The weather gets nice, then goes back to nasty bitterness. I can see spring just up ahead, then winter is slapping me in the face again. I’m getting really tired of it. Not to mention that everybody in my house has some level of sickness and I’m sure the bipolar weather is not helping it at all.

Yesterday, the weather was nice again (today it’s pretty foul) so what did Rudy and I do? How predictable can I get: we went on a little walk. There, sadly, is just not much to post about right now. I’ll get more creative soon, I promise, once my foggy-winter-head clears up.

Those Winter Blues

I feel them starting: those nasty, wasty winter blues. I just want green. Warmth. Brightness. Sunshine. Fresh air. I feel kind of bad, I wish I could love all seasons equally, but I am really over winter. This one hasn’t even been particularly harsh or anything but it’s just making me feel blah. I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’ve been ill. Either way, I was living vicariously through photographs earlier and I think we all could use a little dose of some August Gems. Maybe I can will warmer weather to start soon if I keep posting photographs like these.

Digging.
Wouldn’t you know it, she found a hole in the road. She loves to dig around in anything that has to do with dirt/rocks/pebbles/etc.

Coffehouse Crouching

Rudy Mae

I have been a little under the weather, two separate occasions with barely any time at all between them. I have thus been slacking on anything “ericanichole” related and I was itching to get something up, but a) since I have not been doing much, there’s not much to post and b) since I have to go to work soon, I really think I ought to nap so I don’t feel like double crud before a long shift. So, I wanted to make this short and sweet. This photograph was taken a week or two ago when my husband and I went to our local coffee shop with Rudy Mae for a quick pick me up (chai tea for me, hot chocolate for him, and a blueberry muffin for all).

Stockings

Please excuse my lack of posting, most of the family, but most especially poor Rudy Mae, has been very sick the last week and a half. I’m just now finally getting a chance to make a fresh post and I must say that I am excited about it. We decorated for the holidays the Monday after Thanksgiving (I believe that was the topic of my blog two posts ago) but I hadn’t gotten the stockings up yet because we were trying to decide on the best place for them still. Yesterday as I was cleaning the heck out of our home, I decided to just throw them up myself and I am thrilled with them. I absolutely adore how they look and, yes, it made me even more excited about Christmas. (And you thought that wasn’t possible!)

I cannot wait to fill these beauties with goodies and see the faces of our children as they open them. Sometimes stockings can be more fun than presents!
