Friday, I'm in love....

I'm in love with the Thug Kitchen cookbook. Though I will say that I find the swearing a little heavy handed. Which? Is saying something - as I do love my recipes gratuitously punctuated with profanity. But - the food is unfussy, creative, and vegetarian. There.

Around here.

OK. Around here, everybody needs to just calm down. We had a rough week - attacked by two dogs and one IT professional, tears over homework every night, destruction and despair on every front. (There was one morning of rather joyful cutting down of trees and bushes on the farm with my neighbor, Judy.)
Week of sorrow and failure over.
New week of triumph and satisfaction begins now!

Hey, sweet potato!

Ooo! New color!
Isn't it delicious? Couldn't you just roast it and eat it? Maybe with a little olive oil and salt and pepper?

Around here....

Is it Monday already? Around here, the year is going by at the speed of light. Someone told me recently: Busy is a choice. And I continue to choose it because I feel good about the things I've chosen to be busy doing. And I might be slightly more comfortable when I'm a little too busy, when my house and my hair are a little too messy.
Plenty of time for deep thoughts while stopped at a red light.

Around here....

Around here the fog is lavender, the turkeys are wild, and the elevator selfies are full of nine- ten- and eleven-year-olds.

Every day in this boy's life should be as much like big mug of hot cocoa — sweet and creamy and warm — as it can possibly be. With marshmallows. If we could figure out how to get some Nutella in there, that would be great. His enjoyment of the good stuff is pure and beautiful.
Because that's how it should be. When things don't go his way, he is astonished and irate about it.
He's dreamy. Smart and wild.
And one of the most infuriating people I have ever known.
And I'm counting everyone I dated in my twenties.
They don't hold a candle to this one.
And he's ten today.

Around here....

Such a mixed week it's been! Road trips, haircuts, first dance - all good. Hard lessons learned, and finding out what kind of bad ass I am: if you take money off my child, I Will call your mother. That kind of bad ass.
