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
