As I open my curtains each morning, I welcome the world back into my house.  It's the best kind of surprise not knowing what will be revealed*.  It keeps me in check with the seasons, that first glimpse a feel for what weather each day might bring.  I never cease to be enchanted and many a day I take a long pause to soak it all in.

For now, my view includes lambs.  I could sit and watch them for hours.  Those first wobbly steps close to their mothers.  As they grow they group together, gambolling.  Its infectious.  All four limbs leave the ground.  The sheer exuberance of it the essence of spring.

Spring is an awakening.  In every sense.  Whilst watching those lambs my own limbs have a strong desire to move, to emerge from the stillness of Winter and hibernation.

I want to be outside.  I want to embrace the light, the warmth, the sounds, the smells, wrap myself up in them all.

I carry that morning memory with me as I start the day, I know all will be good.


*It was snow yesterday!

  1. snow! oh my we had sleet for a while. and I need to find some lambs xxx although it's best I can't see any from my window, I really would sit and watch them all day...........

  2. I love the first moment when I open the back door to snif the air and listen to the sounds of the birds singing in the trees in much the same way - it's as if we are animals coming out of our burrows to see what the world is like today isn't it?!! Have a great weekend.

  3. The lambs are so cute aren't they. We had them in the field above us for a while.

  4. I love that moment each morning, when I open the curtains on the back doors, not quite knowing what will greet me, yet excited at the possibilities.

    I am looking forward to embracing the light, the warmth...spring in all her glory, as soon as she decides to arrive.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  5. I don't think I'd get anything done all day if I could see lambs from my window, I'd be sat watching them all day. It's bad enough with the blue tits which are building a nest in my bird box, it's fascinating watching them come and go.

  6. I would love to see lambs from my window, what a lovely reminder of spring and new life.

  7. Lovely thoughts, and adorable little lambies. Did you make them?

    1. I did ;). They are part of our seasonal table.

  8. Snow! oh I don't envie you that (had my fill thanks) but lambs...yes please. I went to the local mini farmers market on wednesday and they had the cutest lambs, the owner even offered me the fleeces as and when they were available!

  9. I'm sure those little lambs are the sweetest!

  10. Those are the cutest little felt lambs!
