ANOTHER ORDINARY DAY

Saturday mornings are my time off. 7:30 am. I'm still enjoying my sleep. I think. Not really thinking. Dreaming still, maybe? I can go out by myself for a couple of hours. Kids are sleeping. Ryan is sleeping. He takes care of them until I get back. I went to a couple of yard sales. I bought a cool vintage suitcase and a pair of purple goggles for Emma. She's into "swimming" now. Ryan, Matt and Grandpa take the kids to the pool. Emma wanted to go "swim". I go grocery shopping. Cecilia teaches me how to use coupons effectively. I buy $130 and only pay $77. Not many pictures of our morning.

We meet again. The little ones nap. Ryan fixes us a super delicious little meal. He is such a great cook! Everything he makes is gourmet. I have come to accept that he is the talented cook in the family. I am very grateful that I am the recipient of such tasty meals. He made Eggplant Parmigiana over wheat linguine. I can still taste it. {I guess I did have it for lunch again today} I make salad. Store bought, but I dress it. And sweet corn.

My plate. I savor.

Things slow down. Alex sleeps. Ben plays. Ryan rests. I want to take some {more} pictures of Emma at sunset. We go to a little empty lot near our house. We take pictures. It gets dark. We are ready to come home. I don't have the keys. I look. I pray. I look. I think. I look. Emma plays. I call Ryan. Ryan calls Matt to come help me. He is on his way. I look. I pray. I find. We go home. We itch. Emma wants a bath. We itch. We hurt. Emma hurts. Emma has grass cuts all over her little legs. They hurt. I hurt for her.

I look at these pictures. I am happy. She's lovely.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the picture of Emma eating the delicious looking eggplant parmigiana (spelling?)

Have I already told you that your blog is simply, astoundingly beautiful?
