~rainbow mondays~ finding the color


colorless: right around this time of year, things start to feel about like this for me: washed out gray birds in a gray sky flying south without me. my rainbow practice becomes increasingly important for me to strive to do, so i can remember there is actually still a lot of color in the world!


even if it’s artificial coloring. spoiler alert: all the kids in our lives are getting playdough for christmas! quinn helped me make the first four colors yesterday.


rainbow: mindful tea arranging. this way the tea becomes a self care exercise multiple times.


red: one of our frequent visitors.


red: cranberries getting ready to be sauce, for what turned out to be a very mellow and laid back thanksgiving with more of our kids than we thought we’d get to have around.


orange: glad there are still some of these hanging on.


orange: false chantarelle in our forest. still hoping for some true chantarelles but no luck yet.


orange: quinn’s week off of school for thanksgiving was a week of much game playing. after enough rounds of loot and risk, i decided i wanted a word game, so we invented thanksgiving scattergories.


yellow: apple tree leaves.


green: extra water in the bayou over the past week or so.



green: the first of my rainbow terrace plants has sprouted! i planted 3 bleeding heart roots at the base of the apple trees, and they are already up! i hope they did not jump the gun, and that they do well next season.


blue: this kid makes me happy.


blue: i re-purposed my baby baptism blue jar and baby’s breath as a thanksgiving centerpiece. never mind that it looks more like christmas than thanksgiving! that’s what i could find in the yard for a fresh cut arrangement.


purple: mashed potatoes at thanksgiving ended up lavender, since i had a few purple potato stowaways in the mix.


purple: deep in thought in mama’s purple chair using mama’s purple computer. for christmas, i’m thinking: new socks!
