r a n d o m S a t u r d a y n i g h t . . .

h e l l o L o v e l i e s !

{ inspired by: a lesser winter (and more!) }

January, February... and half of March have passed.

all unseasonably warm.

all unbelievably bright.

( a lesser winter. )

 less shades of grey.  more yellow - orange, blue - violet and fuchsia - red.

( mornings that i pinched myself . . . thinking. . .  it looks like Cali outside! )

thinking about the four days at Whistler when i was almost unplugged . . . 

less coffee.  more herbal teas.

less processed.   more whole.

less synthetic.  more natural.

less television.  more long walks.

less late night.  more sleep.

less media.  more hands on.

less wishing.   more planning.

less talk radio.  more music!

less worry.  more laughter!

less phone calls.  more "i am there, with hugs"!

less laptop.  more life itself.

more love!


today we had the grands while their mommy and daddy 

pounded 13.6 miles of pavement in Tacoma.

the kiddos are completely intrigued with our (60 year old +) game of Cootie.

( it was found in my grandmother's attic over 30 years ago. it belonged to my uncle. )

they call the Cooties spiders.

i told them that spiders have eight legs.

we counted counted six.

they put their bugs together while singing about a little spider and a water spout.

we learned the words "proboscis and antenna".

Holland and i made yarn dollies while Ben and Mr D watched "Chuggington".

   Holland called the dollies, fairies.  she asked me to find pink and gold, and blue and silver ( like 

Cinderella) , so the next time she comes over, she can make some fairies for her girlfriends.

we made a shopping list.

she knows all of her letters, upper case and lower.

next fall she begins pre-school.

the only image of the day was a shamrock pancake waiting to be buttered

and sweetened with syrup.

because you know i'm all about my state!

'bout my state, not status!

it's late.

i have been up since 4:30 am

i just tipped over the brink to silly.

i'm headed back over to Anita's for a bedtime story and a lullaby.

bonne nuit!
