it's been a full week since i've picked up my camera. i loved the glow of tonight's dinner and i was glad that i had pulled the camera out again this afternoon.
some days i have far too many things to share at habit. today was like that.
*it was grey and gloomy all day. i suggested that bennett wear sweatpants to school. he was shocked that he's allowed to wear sweatpants at his new school.
*i suggested that bennett not tease lucy about wearing sweatpants to school. he didn't. but she did ask me, with a priceless expression, "why is he wearing sweatpants to school?"
*it was beef stew weather today. it just was. so i threw meat and carrots and some other made up ingredients into the crock pot and 6 hours later it turned out delicious.
*i made broccoli soup too. because that was the plan before i hijacked the plan with the beef stew. luckily, there's plenty left for tomorrow and for freezing.
*we ate by candlelight for the first time since last winter. we had to negotiate - again - about whether the chandelier would be on or off during the meal.
*i forgot lucy's piano bag when i picked her up from school. we had to make a u-turn to go home for it before her lesson.
*bennett's tooth fell out in school today, but i had the tooth in my jacket pocket (and i was out) when he went to sleep. i wonder what the tooth fairy will do.
*i found a little teak chest of drawers on craig's list. i actually called the guy. i actually went (with a friend) to see it. i actually bought it. it's perfect. for a steal.
*i finally remembered to open the bottle of wine with dinner.
all of that feels important, somehow. some days are like that, i suppose.
