See What Happens...

Life is settling back into a comfortable place, where I can lounge and putter around in the garden, which is still surprising me with vegetables I didn't even know were there. Or I can walk into the living room and find the girls playing Tea Party with their dad. Heck, I even escaped for a few hours to have a drink or two, okay it was three. Haven't done that in five years (the 3 drinks part). We spent two whole days together this weekend, with not one major work distraction. Smiles all around!

Amazing things can happen in just a few short moments when everyone is happy and content, like Sj deciding today was the day to free herself from the world of training wheels. Much to our delight it took her no time to master only two wheels, our love for cycling truly is genetic. She beamed with excitement and so did we for that matter!


Yes, my hubby completed the weekend with pancakes and his special blueberry sauce, not to mention a few other delightful meals. I missed his cooking more than I cared to admit. So did the girls, obviously.

Just for the record, squeals and giggles have once again returned to bath time.How can it be Monday already? Say it isn't so.

  7. Hooray for no training wheels! We've been contemplating taking them off at our house as well.

    There really isn't anything better than a nice weekend of family togetherness. Especially when your husband cooks!

  9. That's awesome. We also had a family day on Sunday. We went to the farmer's market in Keene and then had lunch in Keene Valley and walked around. So nice to be all together.
