random tuesday things:
the middle boy is reading~ the bronze bow and daughter dear ~st. maria goretti. good holy reading while i eat dark chocolate granola. it’s organic and it is yummy!
littlest son has a cousin over to play. they are wandering in and out, playing baseball and doing boy things. they lost darling daughter’s pink softball and she is not happy.
i wish there was a pill for enthusiasm, i would take one in an instant. can someone else please tell me they are feeling the blahs with regards to school. formal schooling anyway. i have no problem feeling motivated about chasing that yellow and black swallow tail butterfly around the yard for a good picture so that we could do a water color or perhaps packing everyone up for a surprise day trip to mission san juan capistrano, but fractions and that writing test are looming over my head, the cold is still lingering and it is cloudy. oh, and my love is gone for two more days and it is our anniversary this week.
but besides all that, life is grand. i slept really well last night, despite being “home alone”. my boys are good at making me feel safe. the stuffy feeling is almost gone from my head and i have a clean kitchen! no dirty dishes whatsoever. which to you all who have functioning dishwashers-take it from someone who is washing dishes pioneer style-this is no easy task. today i will work solely on laundry, which i caught up on last week, but we all know how sneaky those dirty clothes can be.
nothing very lent-ish to report. i did have sort of a lenten “epiphany” yesterday and i am really feeling peace as a result of it. God is so good, all you have to do is ask. duh, right? well, i guess i am still spiritually immature because there was something very important to me that i was not asking for and when i did, it was made perfectly clear. that is why He is God and me, well, i am just me.
and finally, because beautiful images cheer me up, here is a little green for your tuesday from me. and if this is not enough, go here for even more green!
