taking some time to reflect upon my week…
:: driving down long stretches of road, trees on either side of me…noting the variations on green…have you looked? incredible
:: both kids trying soccer for the first time this spring, and both enjoying it a lot…practices, games, friendly kicking in the backyard
:: the blossoms, oh the blossoms
:: realizing that i flag a lot of my emails, intending to come back to them (especially homeschool messages filled with resources)…wishing there was some way to double or triple flag…that would remind me, non?
:: my daughter getting existential on me the other day…why am i here, mama? why am i a human? why?
:: do you have a recipe that you return to again and again? and, every once in a while, for some reason, it turns out exceptionally delicious? yesterday it was the blueberry muffins
:: all of you who left comments on this post…holy wow, you blew me away with your love and kindness and open hearts…it was not what i expected…i was deeply touched by each of you and i thank you xo
:: reading this with the kids…humorous and poignant, told from a gorilla’s point of view…i watched the kids’ reactions as i read, and knew they were feeling, understanding, considering so much
:: rice noodles, fish sauce, sugar, garlic, scallions, eggs…voila, pad thai (and, voila, a smile on my face)
so, tell me, how was your week? did you gather some moments?
sending a little love your way, m

Your world always looks to be on the threshold of Full Bloom :) Oh, my girl wonders why she isn’t a cheetah (next life time … and i have to wait for her to join me!) and i am itchin’ for some true Spring fare (grilled veggies made into soup or added to pasta salad) … i think we’ve finally turned the corner and i can – once again – packed away the sweaters and parkas!
Oh, i would rather manifest an email fairy who could organize and handle my mess!
big love to you … big sighs … xox
I’ve been in a tossed salad mood with nuts and seeds aplenty! Deep questions from your daughter, so young and so wise. how about opening another email (I KNOW! crazy) and forward them to a homeschooling only place??
Oh the blossoms! I just wish they stayed with us longer! Oh how I could relate to your comment…wishing there was some way to double or triple flag…so true!!
Love the flavour of spring and the peek into your week. I seem to stir fry a lot – and actually it turned out pretty delicious last night. :) Have a lovely weekend.
My recipe that I find myself baking each week is for sour dough bread; I’ve been making the overnight version and it truly is better each week. Now if I can just keep from eating so much of it ;)
Have a fun weekend!
