Well hey and howdy folks! It's been awful quiet around here, hasn't it?
We were having such a good time romping around the woods with my Granny that we stayed longer than expected. We really needed that… a little slow down, breathe deeply, reconnect time. So thank you for bearing with us.
There's really nothing like a few days of sitting in the swing, drawing, catching up, sipping tea and watching the kids get dirty to screw a girl's head on straight. I brought home lots of laundry, a dirty car, happy kids, buckets of plants that my Granny swears I can't kill, and some much needed perspective.
In effort to remember the things I learned in the woods, and to try and hang onto a little of the peace we gained there, I"m going to try to turn down the burner and let the blog simmer a bit. For the rest of the month I'm going to post just one photo and a sentence or two each day … little reminders (for me) of the stuff worth thinking on, the simple pleasures and small wonders – a meditation of sorts.
It's going to be a busy month, and I've been so anxious lately about too many things. I need to let go of that and remember the sound of the wind through the pines. I hope that this blog project will help me do that and that maybe it will be a little bright spot in your day too. Feel free to play along if you like!
Today's Small Wonder?
Little boys eating ice cream and playing Uno on their great grandmother's porch. 25 years ago, you would have found me doing the very same thing (including the peeking that little hooligan in the middle is doing!). My Momo played a mean game of Uno and dished up my ice cream in a coffee mug too – it's one of my favorite memories, and one I'm glad that my men are making their own.
