life is quite often spilling over with goodness. mundane goodness is fine with me. i am a very simple person. i mind my own business and i am quite content to be here at home, doing things like sitting on the couch reading a good story or waiting to see what birds are going to visit the feeder. i saw the lovliest bluejay yesterday and i was so thrilled at his presence. (notice i didn’t add de-cluttering or washing dishes to that little ditty on “contentment”?)
this was a very busy week, however, and i do not like the chaotic feeling which is the result of such busy-ness. not too much sitting was accomplished and therefore i had to say no to a field trip yesterday that i REALLY wanted to go on. i am not very good at saying no and this was sort of the first of many more which are to come. so, i let my mother take my girl to see a play i had been looking forward to in order to stay home with a little boy who has had way too much overstimulation the past two weeks and was waaaayyyy in need of a nap. he has been having earaches that are keeping us both awake at night and since i am not very into running to the doctor to get an antibiotic, we are slowing things down a bit, watching how much sugar is consumed and adding cod liver oil to his daily diet. i swear by it. if you have kids who have earaches, try it. i had virtually eliminated all sorts of ear troubles (excepting some swimmer’s ear) when i was religiously using it about 3x’s a week. 1 tsp. a day per kid.
anyhow, back to bluejay days. those are so much nicer to talk about. well, i don’t officially have any bluejay pictures to share yet. for when they come i am somehow so awestruck that i can’t even move. i guess i am afraid that if i do it’ll spoil the moment. so for day 17, i think i”ll just share a few random picture thoughts………
