lunch is served

Processed with VSCOcam with t3 preset

lately, the days have stumbled one into the other as we’ve been crossing some big bridges over here.  there was a death in my husband’s family {upon which i won’t elaborate, as it’s not my story to tell} and amidst traveling to be with family, and snowstorms, and head/chest colds, things got a bit jumbled and i had to keep checking the calendar {seriously} to keep track of which day it was.

but things are beginning to settle, and healing is underway.  outside my window, there is a blanket of snow and february winds whip through the birch branches.  there is deeply felt gratitude for the warmth of our home and the beating hearts of those around me.  and, while sunday afforded me a day to remain mostly sofa-side with book in hand and warm chai nearby, monday was a day to return to familiar rhythms…the laundry, the dishes, the schoolwork, the meals.  things familiar.  and some things less so, in the case of yesterday’s lunch…a heaping pile of hot pancakes.  because why the hell not? it just seemed the proper lunch to serve.  and i didn’t have to venture onto much of a limb to guess that the kids would agree with me.  rest assured, bellies were full and mouths were turned upward in smiles.

slowly, we sink back into our rhythms.  slowly, we shift our gears.
it’s tuesday, right?

sending a little love your way, m

  1. so sorry about your husband’s family member who died, very sad. I’ve read that book and LOVED it. Here’s hoping that you have a very uneventful week ahead where you sit and be in perfect harmony :)

  2. I’m very sorry to hear about you and your family’s loss. Sending healing thoughts your way.

    Also, thank you for directing us towards “The Language of Flowers”. As a big floriography fan and loyal, I can’t believe I haven’t heard of this book before. Looking forward to reading it.

  3. I’m really very sorry for your loss too. Death is something I just can’t seem to get used to. It’s happened this way too recently and well, I’m just sorry for your loss. I love no rules for lunch. Looks so good and inviting. Always inviting.

  4. I am so sorry for the loss in your family. Sending some love back your way. Wishing you all peace in the moments and calm from the storms life sometimes throws.


  5. I’m sorry for your family’s loss. I know the feeling of days melting into each other and doing whatever it takes to bring a little joy into the house. sending some love your way. xo
