The high chairs are stashed back in the baby room.
The kids (big and little) all went home.
We called friends over last night to help us eat the Rhubarb Bar.
The pictures of the smiles.
We told them how the lil' farm hand giggled over and over again when Grandpa threw the ball for Tobee and he caught it.
Lil' miss N had herself a leisurely nap. . .
and woke with smiles.
My mom by love .. .announced at lunch that she wouldn't mind living with us. .
lets just build a "big" house in that field .. .she said.
The rest of the day I quizzed her.. . .
how many dinners a week could I count on. . .
does she do blinds. . .
(she is a wonderful cook and baker .. .and no . .she's mine. . part of the package when I married. .. .you can't build a big house in your field and invite her over to live)
I felt oddly complimented that she would want to.
Something to ponder .. . .
Oh and the little vase with the white orchid?
It was my mom's.
So much of the world knows heartache this morning.
Not even fully awake we heard that there was yet another piece of devastating news.
China has suffered a terrible earthquake. . .schools have crumpled and children are trapped.
8500 plus souls lost.
Here am I . . .I feel incredibly blessed,
I sit here and look at yesterdays photos and wonder .. .
Today, let me show a little love back to those that need it most.
Have a wonderful day my friends, I'm off for my walk.
