Happy Easter! We’re having us a lazy Sunday morning over here at the Johnston house, so I thought I’d throw open the windows and show yall what’s been going on the last couple of weeks around here. Instagram still hasn’t lost its novelty for me, I won’t lie!
This was two Mondays ago, the girls decided to congregate at the bottom of our driveway and send me off to work for the week! My Monday Morning Welcome Wagon.
This was in response to my friend Anne’s picture on Insta of her super cool tennis shoes she wore for some Spring color at the vet’s office where she works. I didn’t have tennis shoes or Springiness in my step that morning (same day as the above picture. Notice the snow), but I decide to wear my fuzzy moccasins one more time before it got too hot to wear them! Mom got these for me for Christmas, because she saw her friend’s twelve-year-old wearing them and knew they’d be right up my alley :) I’m taking it as a compliment. Spakles? Check. Pink? Check. Comfy? Check. Perfect for me, and pre-teens everywhere!
This is my favorite picture from this last Instagram round! The cows knocked down our fence and were grazing in our backyard the other morning, and I thought it was so funny! The grass is just starting to grow so the girls are hunting that green stuff like crazy. Or, they just needed a new location for their book club that week. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. See that little black dot halfway out of the right side of the frame? Duckie just couldn’t resist cows in the yard!
I’ve been taking the dogs on walks a couple mornings a week before work–it’s hard to get up that early, but SO worth it. There’s nothing more peaceful or calm than the cool of the morning, the sun coming up and the birds singing. And then the dogs dive-bomb a group of geese and all you hear for the next ten minutes is the frantic honking of geese. Wouldn’t change it :)
It’s definitely Spring in Colorado, because we’ve had some crazy weather the past couple of weeks. This was just the other day, when we had some really low, fast-moving foggy sorts of clouds. This picture totally doesn’t do it justice, but you get the idea. This was Thursday. Friday it was like, 70 degrees. I love Colorado.
Weekly Starbucks shot. Quinn got me the coolest glass cup, and so I just had to get a frapp and take a picture. Because that’s what social media is for, right? Taking pictures of everything in your life ever and sharing it with the world like it’s the first time anyone ever has done it and pretending people are interested?
This little guy was too weak to nurse his mother, so Bert fed him with a bottle and helped him stand for a few days. Unfortunately, he didn’t make it, but Bert’s pretty sure he was born with some kind of congenital issue because he was so weak, and he was oddly bony and entirely devoid of fat and just very strange-looking. Definitely not completely normal. It’s still sad, though, because you want to save all of them, but there are some who just can’t survive outside the womb, no matter how hard you try.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you all had a wonderful, peaceful Easter with your family and friends!
