i started this post a full twenty four hours ago.
that i never got back here to finish it is a sign that:
i lay out in the back yard with anna for a long time yesterday morning,
looking up.
i visited with some friends, and took some photos.
i waited for the girls to come home, sitting on the front steps with my tea.
i cooked dinner for eight for the first time in a while; we're all back together now, in one place.
i walked out to the park afterwards,
and watched one more little girl in our neighborhood learn how to ride a two wheeler.
i cleaned up the kitchen and folded a load of laundry.
i looked at a japanese craft book that a friend lent to me.
i kissed tim goodnight and left him to finish up our taxes.
and i went to sleep.

and today is a new day. thanks for reading.

a full day.
nice, to be able to walk away from the taxes. next monday is tax day. I always make much more of this day than I need to.
we have blue skies and a promise of sunshine.
cooking dinner for 8 astounds me.

Have I told you how much I like your film shots? They seem to reflect your words so well, about your home and family.

I missed these on flickr. Had to go back and 'fave' them. Really great pics.
