    Glasses...


    This post reminds me that I need to get my eyes checked again and
    get new glasses.  These frames are shot.
    I hate picking out frames.

    I Wore This Today...


    One of my Dad's t-shirts...
    I miss him so much.  It's been almost six months since his death
    and it still feels like yesterday, some days moreso than others.
    Sigh...

    My Sunday...


    Happy Birthday to my Big Brother!
    How wonderful you are and how grateful we are to have you in our lives!
    I love you with my whole heart and always will.

    Earth...

    There is something so wonderful about the smell of earth.
    Moving it around, picking it up, digging your toes in it...
    So primitive and lovely at the same time.

    Childhood...


    Watching my children play makes me relive my own childhood.
    Oh, to see the world through their eyes and not my jaded ones!

    Life Is...


    ...all about love.

    I Saw This Person Today...


    My silly boy...
    Oh, how I love him!

    Time...


    Time is very important around here.
    More specifically, time management...
    We're burning daylight, folks.  Make every minute count.

    Blurry...


    I love this picture of Liesl and Leia, even if Liesl's hands are blurry here.
    They are quite photogenic, aren't they?

    Fire...

    We are all longing for a backyard fire at the vacation house.
    Sigh...

    On My Mind...


    Lots of gray hair...
    Sigh.

    Button...


    There are days when I really need to use this button.

    Thursday, April 18, 2013

    Hello!...


    I love that Liesl is sneaking in a little "hi" here. 
    And, of course, Liv is posing like a supermodel.
    And Leia is admiring her siblings.
    And Jack is terribly outnumbered by all that estrogen.

    Busy...


    My busy little budding gardener...

    My Favorite Colour...


    The color of my soul.  The color of my cold, dead heart.
    I fancy that I sat with Dorothy Parker at the Algonquin Round Table in a past life.

    Alone...


    Leia gave Liesl bangs.
    This is what happens when you leave two three-year-olds alone for a minute.
    Beauty shop time.

    Water...


    This is my water bottle.  I take it with me to work every day.
    I need to increase my daily water intake.  I don't think I drink enough of it.

    View From My Bed...


    Looking up at my ceiling fan from my bed...
    One of these days, maybe I'll be able to sleep late.

    In The Middle...


    This is Liv.  She's my middle child.
    And she is pretty amazing...
    Her 7th birthday party is this Sunday.
    She's going to be so happy!

    Detail...

    Yes, that's a cicada in my hand.
    Beautiful, isn't it?

    A Place...


    The most fun in the world for my kids is at Grandma's house.
    That playset in the yard is amazing!

    Tiny...


    I keep looking at this picture and remembering how tiny they were when they were born.
    Now they're all "kid" and no "baby."  Sigh...

    On My Plate...


    Who doesn't love a great omelette with everything in it?
    My favorite!

    Seven...


    I can't believe my Beauty is seven years old today.  It doesn't seem like so long ago that she entered my world and changed it for the better.

    Happy Birthday, Liv!
    Your spunk, your fire, your edgy nature, your creative lens...they all tell me I'm doing something right.
    You are no doormat, my love.

    Dreamy...


    A dreamy time in the yard, playing with my kids, and loving our life together...

    Saturday, April 06, 2013

    Air...


    The only fresh air I get in my classroom is from this tiny window.
    Ugh.
    I wish I could hold class outside on nice days like this.  Sigh.

    Something Good...


    These are my children.  My life is a good one because of them.

    This Happened Today...


    I found myself thinking about my next vacation to the Northwoods.
    I. Can't. Wait.
    August cannot come fast enough.  Sigh.

    Something Beginning With A...


    Autism Awareness

    My porch is lit up blue because I support those who are affected by autism, my own family included.
    Educate yourselves and your children on what autism means.
    If you really want to be supportive, teach your children that it's okay to be different.
    Different is never bad.

    Blue...


    Blue coat, icy blue eyes...
    Leia Belle...

    Play...


    Look who plays on big kid swings now.  Wow!
    C'mon!  Play along with me!
