:: noticing the moments ::

taking some time to reflect upon my week…


:: i’m hooked on black teas lately…wanting the boldness, and needing it sweetened…like a treat each morning

:: slow mornings…the kids and i curled up, reading

:: sibling arguments…also the togetherness…whittling and a secret project on which i’ve not yet been briefed


:: peanut butter cookies

:: tired (and impatient) the other night as i was getting our pup into her crate for the night…she went to her water dish first (i sighed)…i listened to her lapping the water (i softened)…it’s like listening to a horse munch hay…i find the sound satisfying and sweet

:: a personal project on which i’ve long procrastinated…something clicked…i got to work


:: homemade pizza with the kids

:: fretting…then seeing that things played out as they would have played out anyway

:: an autumn walk with my favorite girl…she likes girls’ walks…i like them too


and how was your week?  i hope the challenges were interspersed with gifts.

sending a little love your way, m

  1. things are starting to click here. many times i wait for that – rather than pushing.

    am substituting black teas for coffee this fall (i grew up on tea but my spouse is a coffee-drinker and the scent is so enticing but i’ve been wanting to go for something more mellow lately..)

  2. I have been drinking gallons of chai sweetened with honey and almond milk, it really is like a special treat each morning…noon…and evening.
    Now I think I need to go bake some peanut butter cookies :)
    Have a great weekend.

  3. “i hope the challenges were interspersed with gifts.” What a great way of looking at things, M! Yes, yes it was. xo
