ordinary days




Life seems to be ever changing and pulling me in all different directions.
Between stomach flu bugs, mountains of laundry and chicken noodle soup-
there is little time to breathe
Also a new furnace that finally was installed after waiting 14 days without heat-
only to discover two gas leaks and  
NW energy guy telling us to evacuate the house
- finally got it fixed after scaring us all to death. 
My oldest getting in heaps of trouble this past weekend.
Homework, plays and basketball games
who ever said parenthood is easy- has no clue.
It just gets harder as they get older
Trying to breathe and center my self
...a little tea and Country Living Magazine break
My horses eagerly waiting to be ridden and out of pasture
 after what seems a looooong winters nap-
constantly eyeballing my every move to see if  "now" is a good time?
Getting a head start on winter clothes OUT
and summer clothes IN
Going to bed at night seams only as a pit stop
to catch a breather for the next day series of events.
These are just ordinary days- I love them, they are my life.
Not well orchestrated or planned.
As long as my kids are well, there is heat in the house, my horses still love me
and a little time for a glass of wine with my hubby
- there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
and more laundry
yes...and then there's that...
Love to all
peace out bean sprout!


  1. I hear you loud and clear! Hope the bug is finished in your home. But, what I love the most about you is that you share your positive nature and make the mundane beautiful.

  2. Glad to hear you are okay, how scary about your heat!
    Your days sound wonderfully full to me and it's a wonderful life that you are living...that's not just a movie title, it's really true.
    I learned long ago not to stress over laundry, it is something that is on going and as long as everyone has a least one clean outfit to wear, they're good!
    Have a beautiful day Camilla, you deserve it!

    1. - yes, laundry...like shoveling in a snow storm.

  3. Your ordinary days sounds very familiar!! The laundry is constant here too, football stuff is particularly muddy at this time of year!
    But your ordinary day photos are lovely and they make our ordinary days better. x

  4. Gosh your ordinary week sounds stressful! Hopefully this week the oldest will be good, the flu will be gone, the gas company will not scare you to death. All you will have is the evil eye from the horses, laundry and cups of tea :) loved this post, take care!!

    1. ...sounds good, thanks for the encouragement Karen :)

  5. Ordinary is good and from your pictures it is a very full and loving life :)

    Sorry about the heat/gas scare, not fun. Hope you are having a good day.

  6. sounds all so very familiar. no kids in trouble yet as they still aren't old enough to be out on their own but i know it's coming :(

  7. it seems only yesterday i was just where you are (family wise) with all the same worries and joys (and laundry mountains!). my mom used to tell me little people little problems, big people...well, you know. it's lovely you are making the moments for yourself, it is so important to listen to the voice in you, feed your soul. someday in the not too distant future, the children will all be grown and gone, you will not get this time with them back. sending hugs and love, lori

  8. What a crazy week, but I do so love your perspective. Now you have heat - yikes, and spring is around the corner. This parenting/life gig is not easy, but if it were it wouldn't be half as fun. Wishing you a wonder filled week.

  9. Wow, 2 gas leaks, that's scary.
    Also we were here 2 weeks without gas. (the gas tank was empty)
    Simultaneously the washing machine was broken. Fortunately now made​​.
    I am glad that my friend often does the laundry.
    Now he helps me to clean my studio.
    Tomorrow, we get a few days of winter here in Hungary.
    But next week the spring finally begins.
    Inhale and exhale, and keep yourself in balance! ox

  10. So glad to hear you are okay and have heat again. I am a HUGE lover of the British Country Living Magazine too.. Try to carve a few minutes out to dive into those soothing pages..good for the soul and creative spirit! Hang in there!


May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
