my weekend was full to the brim, not even counting puppies and kids. i took long long walks, through the marsh and the beach and back home again. it rained and then stopped and the sun came out and made everything sparkle. and shimmer. puddles on the way like stepping stones to guide me. once or twice making the necessary testing of the splashability of the water. half way hoping it would start to rain before i got back home.
then, impulsively but not quite, because i had been thinking about it, i slipped my hair into two braids and snip sniped off a bit. or more. turns out i cut ten inches off. gulp. ! . well, miraculously that is exactly what locks of love requires. so it was the right decision, right? as my dear friend geli says, it is good to take a decision and then do it. i have to say though my husband chuck was a bit shocked when i came out of the bathroom holding up my braids, one in each hand. and my hair just a wee bit crooked.
i finished my scarf too. blocking is a real challenge now since owen likes yarn more than anything else on earth. much to my dismay. i need either a bigger table or a gate. or maybe he'll grow out of it?
then, my daughter and i made a big pot of soup and a loaf of bread for sunday night dinner. our guest of honor was her friend here all the way from wisconsin. we had on the super bowl and he tried to watch it. but i think he was having more fun looking out of the corner of his eye at sadie and travis and owen rolling around on the ground and at kimberly and i in the kitchen.
yes it was a very full weekend. i finally got the children to bed (they are spending the night here tonight),they want one last kiss and cuddle for owen, one last request for a drink of water and finally can we hear "night mantra" and "it's a big world", one more time?
yes darlings, how could i say no?
these words are for you...
