if you read my (what should have been titled ‘strange’) Saturday post and thought, oh, my stars….
that was just one of those ‘my brain is whirling and i want to get this out’ moments.
luckily, i don’t put a lot of those out there.
so, i swiped off the camera card and found we actually did a number of things that i didn’t post about in the past couple weeks.
Tim gave me a lovely bouquet of flowers for V-day.
i baked and decorated the cake. (no worries. i know it’s far from my forte`)
we made granola and ate it in big mugs instead of bowls.
Kate ate. Lots.
Seth had a Science project that was fun for all. (Brent heard something about safety goggles and…he’s a riot!)
i crossed school children. (and, obviously, the toilet lid was not down.)
Brent and i took a nap in my bed. (luckily, nobody was there to take mom’s picture.)
the boys have gotten into styling their hair.
Kate sits with Grandma.
i finished painting the living room. pictures later.
the girls play together all the time. all the time.
i’m still enjoying my sanity saving runs even though this winter wind business makes it brutal.
thankfully, the likes of Toby Mac pounding in my ear motivates me onward.
Tim is telling me the forecasters are predicting a storm for us this week.
i actually would enjoy that.
one storm here and then, i’m ready for spring.
i’m already looking forward to doing a garden party in both May and June.
Tim and i keep talking about if and what and when we might do something for our anniversary and since that is technically in the spring-time, i am hoping that winter bids us farewell very soon.
i keep trying to convince my mom to come see us.
i’ve kicked up the picture emailing a couple notches.
Seth called them once or twice.
i’ll wear ’em down.
and, one last thing/thought.
i’m so thankful for and learning from the fact that babies are no respecters of persons.
smile at any-ol-body, they do.
i want to be more like that.
