I know it sounds trite.
I know I’m not any different than any other person.
But life is busy right now. The sun eases it’s way into my bedroom each morning and before I know it I am laying my tired head on my pillow long after the sun has made it’s exit. The weeks are ticking by and the calendar pages keep on turning. So I am taking the time to pause, to pay attention, to not let every busy second slip through my fingers. That’s what I like about blogging…
Jude’s Birthday was so pleasant and low-key this year. Jude loves big parties with lots of people and lots of action but we decided it was time to simplify birthdays. Not make them any less special… just simpler.
I asked him what he wanted for his special birthday dinner. His answer: berries, pancakes, and sausage. No problem! I even splurged for a couple of small cartons of blackberries. They are not in season yet so they were a little pricey but Jude was so thankful!
These are the flowers Justin brought home Saturday night, along with a wedge of brie cheese, a crusty baguette, some apricot preserves, and honey (yum!).
Aren’t “no-particular-reason” flowers, the best kind of flowers?
The ladybugs are loving our garden and the boys love finding them. This is the two of them asking for a jar for their ladybugs. I think every spare jar and Tupperware box I own is scattered about the garden and the grass. I have nothing to put my leftovers in!
She woke up early from nap today. I admit, at first I was peeved. But she looked so darn cute sitting on my bed eating an apple and watching old Donald Duck cartoons… I just couldn’t stay peeved for long.
It’s another jam packed week so I am off running! See back here on Wednesday
