holding on to april

because in april i never dreamed that the baby could be away from me for 3.whole.nights.

but for a child. who is most often confined to a home in the city. pavement. sidewalks. lights and lots of cars. the beckoning prairie is too loud to ignore.

the special rocks. the weapons. wildflowers. food cooked over a campfire. the smell of smoke in your hair. and the chance to wear moccasins instead of shoes.

oh, yes. they are having a grand ol’ time without me.

and they are in good hands.

well, this quiet may evening is over. the house is picked up. my husband snores softly. and i sit here alone. too tired to do any sewing now. feeling like i’ve misplaced something.

like 4 children….

those slipcovers?

i never got around to them.

i figured it’d be better that the 4 children came home to a clean. organized. house. and a rested mama rather than new slipcovers.

maybe some other day.

  1. Good for you, ignoring those slipcovers.

    Enjoy your Sunday!

  2. Agreed! Slipcovers can wait for winter days.

    Peace & serenity in the pictures. Lovely green grass and purple flowers. That tent reminds me of the blue/green one compartment tent my dad used when we were kids. Room enough for everyone and everything.

  3. Happy Sunday (evening) to you! I’m glad you had time to relax this weekend.

  4. good for you! isn’t that sometimes the hardest? this life. its a balancing act.

    Do what you like, like what you do? I think you like so many things (I do!) that sometimes I get very little done, but I like that as well! šŸ˜‰ HUGS.
