Right now, I am...
:: congratulating my players, coach Papa, and myself too, on a successful baseball season free from broken hearts or broken bones. (Phew!)
:: feeling grateful to have our leisurely family dinners back without the rush of a game or practice to follow.
:: enjoying the season continuing in the backyard. (Baseball Season never really ends.)
:: loving all the activity the game cabinet is getting in this stretch of rainy afternoons we're having (Orchard, fittingly, seems to be the game of the season).
:: remembering that there are leftovers from last night's strawberry rhubarb crisp.
:: thinking that might be breakfast. There's oatmeal in the crisp, right?
:: wondering if there's still time to pick more strawberries.
:: hoping the extra grounding rods we put in this weekend keep those piggies in place.
:: listening to the new Brandi Carlile album, Bear Creek, and really liking it a lot.
:: running out of fleece to spin!
:: watching Ezra out my window practicing his latest breakdance moves, white gloves, fresh mohawk and all.
:: drying out tents and sleeping bags over every chair in my kitchen, in anticipation of a little family adventure this week.
:: packing bug nets, swimsuits, and rain gear for seven. Oh my.
:: saying a little prayer that the rain holds off, the bugs are mild, and that the baby likes sleeping on the ground.
:: looking forward to being there...in all the silence, beauty, and connection to be found deep in the woods.
:: wishing you all a most lovely start to your week, whatever adventures it may hold for you!
