"Let's have a merry journey, and shout about how light is good and dark is not. What we should do is not future ourselves so much. We should now ourselves. "NOW thyself" is more important than "Know thyself." Reason is what tells us to ignore the present and live in the future. So all we do is make plans. We think that somewhere there are going to be green pastures. It's crazy. Heaven is nothing but a grand, monumental instance of future. Listen, now is good. Now is wonderful." ~ Mel Brooks

For Little Hands :: Encouraging Spring

I'm trying to figure out how to work For Little Hands back into my weekly posts, I know consistancy is key and I'm not sure quite yet what the rhythm will look like. My thought this time around is to have it on Fridays as a way to kick of the weekend. I'll add more to it as the idea comes to fruition.


We love the birds that come and visit our bird feeders; their sweet songs and round little bellies. It's a real joy to sit back and watch them and even when we don't, we know they're there and that brings a smile to our faces.

Here is an older post for you to enjoy(with wee hands in mind) about a simple way to interact with your neighborhood birds while  providing much needed nourishment.....at least where it's really wintry this time of year!

Look at my little Charlotte! She sure has grown! Oh my xoxo


  1. first... wow you stitched up the blog look. i like it!
    second... do you microwave or heat up the peanut butter in anyway? even our natural peanut butter doesn't spread to easily. i was toying with heating it up some.

    1. Thank you!! I was feeling kinda bogged down so I thought a blog face lift was in order!! I think it's a much more straight forward look, pretty, even.

      I didn't heat out PB up but I'm sure that would be fine! Let me know how they turn out for you :) xo

  2. We did something similar this week. But used corn cobs from the field that surrounds our house. We have a white sparrow that has come to visit this winter. Seeing it brings so much peace and hope to my heart.

  3. I'm stopping over from Friday's Nature Table. I love the "For Little Hands" idea! My girls love having projects that they can do! Please do share with us on Tuesdays at Eco Kids: http://organicaspirations.blogspot.com/2013/02/reducing-paper-waste-and-eco-kids.html


I very much enjoy connecting with you in this space. If you feel inspired to leave a comment, please do!
