i try very hard to be mindful. mindful of the little pieces that make up the whole. in the chaos of life it is easy to slip into bad habits. today was filled with simple good things. starting with the sun. it was bright and the temps hovered around freezing, so that meant it was warm. little wind meant we could get out for a nice walk. it has been awhile. even a few days with little ones is TOO long. we had fun at breakfast with giggles focused on the newspaper and 2 little ones hiding under it. and fresh flowers brought home with the paper and bagels and coffees. oh yeah. oh and strawberries and blueberries with a little honey, my body was in need of fruit! later hubby baked bread. it has been a long while since that has happened. his bread is so good. and the smell alone can be euphoric. not to say i live on planet bliss. um, no. frankly i am not sure what is happening lately. if it is cabin fever or winter blues, but the little ones have been ramping up the hyper. they feed off each other to a fevered pitch at times. we had a wild raucous ride home in the car after picking taylor up at the movies, my ears were ringing and my blood pressure rising. i got in the door and pj's were put on, 1 book read, and then straight to bed they went. i felt defeated. but now here in the still and quiet, looking back at today's photos, i am reminded that all in all the day was good, really good. even though it ended with more crazy than i would like.
