Gray for Days

"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:"
Ecclesiastes 3:1

Winter is incredibly hard for me. I crave sunshine. Color. Life. Everything just seems so gray and dead. It slows me down. Makes me tired mentally as well as physically. 

This year I've tried to bring some pieces of spring inside

I adore this feeder, such an amazing variety of birds visit all throughout the day. We've been able to use this as a learning tool. Studying each species, migration patterns, anatomy, egg varieties, and so much more.  My favorite though is the sound of their chirps. It's none stop all day. So perfect

The temperature may say winter but the sound coming into my kitchen screams spring

LOVE the indoor plants, especially the last one {orange!}

i think that as a homeschool mom, the winter grays can be a trifle more gray sometimes. this is probably why i have painted my main living/working/schooling spaces the brightest colors possible:)
