a dead, snowy plant outside my door this morning

Today I woke up with a full twelve hours of catch-up time. My list was ready, and I woke up going-going-going.

It’s been cold and white outside but warm inside. And, I’ve had two little heartbeats at my feet (or at times in my lap) all day to keep me company.

About 11:30, after finishing numbers 1-3 on the list, I ran out to grab lunch, and as I quickly swung into a parallel spot on Craig St., put on gloves, stepped out onto the snowy sidewalk, and felt the 17 degree air on my face, I could only think one thing:

I love this city. I am very thankful for this white, white day.

And then with crab rangoon in hand, I quickly drove back through the snow to our cozy little house. And here I’ll remain until numbers 4 and 5 on the list have been completed.


Okay, I’m sure you’ve heard about them before if you’ve spent more than 30 minutes with me. This is Tuco (on the left) and Turk (with his favorite toy on the right). The sun came out today, and we couldn’t resist taking a little in!

    Milla - Yes indeed. It has teeny Christmas trees on it and he LOVES it. And Turk has a matching one.

Meet Phin and Silas! Silas slept much of the morning while mom, Phin, and I read books and played with dinosaurs and built a train track. What fun! I certainly learned that ittle boys play very differently than little girls; my sister and I used to have care bears and my little ponies instead of dinosaurs and pirate ships! Thanks guys for letting me hang out with you on such a cold, snowy morning. I loved it.





Today I hung out with Ali and Abby to document 11 weeks in this world. Abby was precious – no crying, no whining, no tiring of the clicking! We did have to wait for a smile, but it came with a little help from mommy! Thanks girls – I really had fun.
