Cheers To Your Weekend - I survived the first week back to school, and more importantly, Friday the Thirteenth. That deserves a drink. Cheers to Your Weekend.
Better Than Flowers -
Weekly Self Portrait - I walked into the kitchen that was flooded with the bright winter sunlight. As the sun shone through the blinds, rows of light and shadows appeared on the front of the fridge. I grabbed my
Lego Club, week 2 - Monday is Lego Club after school. The Little Man and I enjoy the time out of the house with our friends. And I love coming home to dinner made for us. Thanks babe.
Clarity - Day 300. I'm almost at the end of my second 365 journey. I've documented 665 days of my story. As I get closer and closer to the end I'm wondering what I will do with my 365 blog (actually it's 366, this year is a leap year.) Some days, I know with crystal clarity that sharing the everyday moments of my life worthwhile. Other days I wonder if anyone really needs to see another picture and if it serves any purpose at all. Searching for clarity.
Create - The Little Man has been on a creative surge lately. His medium of choice has been the kitchen chalkboard. I keep finding these chalkboard dudes popping up. Awesome.
Thursday January 19, 2012.
Makeshift Ice Rink - We had our first taste of winter. Even though it was cold, the other mommies and I decided to stay and let the kids play in the snow. A group of kids found a patch of ice to skate on. Each time a kid ran and slid across the ice, I could feel my own tailbone hurt. Ouch, that's going to hurt if they fall. I had to force myself not to stop Charlie joining in the fun of this childhood ritual.
This Little Piggy - I held this sweet little boy as I visited with his mommy. My friendship with her has grown slow and steady over the past twenty years. First she was a girl from school, then she was my neighbour, next a member of my extended family, then my hairdresser now I would consider her my friend. I have only recently realized how much her friendship, our connection means to me. That realization filled my heart.
Cousins - They say that cousins are your first friends. These boys have been each other's playmate as long as they can remember. Trust me, they never run out of adventures to find, together they can be double trouble. I took this picture at my nephew's birthday party, in a quiet moment before the rest of the kids arrived. My nephew is proudly showing off his new pet Thunder, and my son just a little unsure.
Looking Forward - The sunrise this morning was beautiful, the heavens joining me in wishing my daughter a happy Sweet Sixteen today. I can't wait to see how she will move FORWARD this year. (She choose FORWARD for her One Little Word for 2012.)
Happy Birthday Honey Bear.
