a feel good post?
it seems silly to sit here just to write that we are knee deep in books about the north american explorers, that beautiful feet has the greatest timeline figures and we like eating pomegranetes with lime and chile. that piano lessons, trips to the park and library filled our day yesterday and that i did some verynecessary deep cleaning today. and how when our fans aren’t in use they have a faux fur look to them that wasn’t very appealing. (i can’t believe those dust bunnies can climb so high!) so thanks to a visit from nannie and papa today, i got the help i needed and i scratched a whole bunch of things off of my list. that feels so good.
it also feels good to know that i am almost finished with the alphabet quilt and not a moment too soon as the mornings and nights have been awfully chilly in this old house.
and finally, it feels good that we’ve found our fall rhythm. i think. we are pretty settled (it’s only been 5 months) and with the rosary at the center of our days, i figure that the Mother of God knows what she’s doing, even when i don’t!
i am not sure what else i should write. except maybe that my eyes aren’t feeling so good. i have that kind of soreness that is i can’t pinpoint. like it could be that i am just over tired or it could be that every time we go to public places we love-like the library and the park or necessary ones like the grocery store, i feel like i can see swine flu germs everywhere.and i don’t know if i am just being paranoid, although i did get a call from the charter school the other day stating that there were confirmed cases of the swine flu in the two closest learning centers. fortunately i did not enroll my kids in any classes this semester, really just for busy-ness sake, but perhaps healthwise it will turn out to be a wise choice all around.
so…the perfect ending to this feel good post? a cup of chamomile tea. a story and bed. my energy levels at night are pretty much nil without the caffeine. are you tired of hearing me gripe about that yet? i may never be good at blogging again……
ps. at least this was a little more eeyore and less mrs. hyde!
