apricot jam

It's a spring day. Full of sun kisses, and warm bark.
My belly is jolly, decorated in peaches, and apricot jam.
I love the morning air. And the morning meal. My day cannot be made until the smell of breakfast spills from the kitchen. x

From the beginning of the week, I've been pondering. I've been pining for dreams.   Lately, the thoughts are of a future homestead.  My brain asks the divine, the land, and the luck, to bring me to a barn yard by the ocean.  Mossy hills that feel like pancakes, and patches for growing a garden.  A chicken farm for eggs. And a boat for fishing.  To live as a pioneer, one with an internet connection, a humble dwelling, and poached eggs for breakfast.  It sound's like a pipe dream.  I was born into a city, I'll pass a country folk. 
 
All I see is a porch. By day, flower picking, and cloud gazing solitude. Come moonlight,  surrounded by guitar strumming-caught by shine-whiskey on occasion -always Friday- kind of friends.

It's Tuesday, as the weather warms, my spirits aglow.   A December baby will always cherish the strawberry sun.  As for me, the spring brings salutations for blossoms, and flowerbeds. The sun eats the snow, and the mud puddles lay bare.   Beside the seed-time season,  I find myself munching on dandelions and sugary things.

I always told myself, if the sky is to deliver me bad news, deliver me bad news during the Spring. How could someone possibly lift their brow in such a beautiful season? The spring keeps me mirthful. The air decays sorrowful heart skippings,    and brings cheeky smiles .

My hair is unkempt.  Brown locks are bundled in tangles, and knots. I admire the comments regarding my hair... or the questions regarding the treatment. I must tell you,  by morning, my hair is knotted from dreams. I shower to tame the wildness.  When the sun is gleaming, I air dry my tresses. When the snow is falling, I use the blow dryer.  Either way. I'm without a comb, a brush, a spray, or a cream.   My hair waves down my breast, and wanders along my spine.    I let my roots grow...and grow..  and grow.  I'm currently seeking shampoos, and conditioners. One's that don't destroy, but keep it smelling nice. Send me your suggestions.


Life is twined in business. There are lambs to be counted, sleep to be had. Dreams to untangle, and moons to be seen. There are stars to count, and hidden treasures in the dirt.  Words to be spoken, and honey to be sipped.        With spring on the horizon, I will never be lonely.

"We are cups, constantly and quietly being filled. The trick is, knowing how to tip ourselves over and let the beautiful stuff out."

sweet sugar, sweet kisses. . .
love forever, amy x

  2. Beautiful Amy, you darling December baby,

    Your words could move mountains. I ponder my dreams every moment, though the stars in my eyes never could keep track of reality.. Your soul is a dreamer, waiting to touch the sun,

    "Life is twined in business. There are lambs to be counted, sleep to be had. Dreams to untangle, and moons to be seen. There are stars to count, and hidden treasures in the dirt. Words to be spoken, and honey to be sipped."

    There is no other like you.

    Love Always,
    Amber Rose,
    June baby.

  5. Oh goodness, honestly, when do you not look absolutely flawless? It's kind of totally unfair. Those pants are something that would look terrible on me but they look incredible on you. Your hair is really lovely, though. The only shampoos and conditioners that have ever worked for me are the Dove hair therapy ones. By the way I love everything you write, so yeah. :)

  19. Ah, beautiful lady, I so enjoyed reading your pearl of words. Spring is such a painterly season, and I do agree, it is a very cheerful season with all the cherry blossoms in bloom, and the earth cracking open to new spring life after the harshness of Winter.

    P.S. I am a new follower;-)

  45. Thank you for your sweet comment, it was really beautiful. Along with the many who say this I think the way you write is so charming! Delicate words of beauty, I love how you describe how you eat, never thought of it as decorating the belly. It's sweet.

    Have you heard of Aussie? They have a shampoo for long hair, I've been using it for over a year now and I'm pretty certain it promotes hair growth as my hair has grown pretty fast since using it, it smells lovely also!
