We skipped pancakes and opted for potatoes, eggs and collard greens (trying to green the diet everywhere). Then we parted ways, a true rarity in our home. We tend to travel in a pack when we go out, keep the family together. Today was an awesome reminder that it does not have to be that way every time. Tim and O hit up the Depot for manly hardware parts and Mace and I spent an hour wandering through our Market, greeting friends and, gasp, actually spending time talking to them.
Things are so different with only one child at a time. Easier to track, to fawn over, a refreshing change after some struggles to manage them both when out of the house. My good friend commented she had never seen Mace spend so much time next to me, and she was right, he just hung out while we chatted.
And the Market is bursting with our early spring growing, everything looked wonderful and light and full of color. I picked up a dozen Araucana blue eggs to eat, but mainly to blow the yolks out of and use for Easter decor.
So pretty, they are almost green blue and they made Mace laugh when I told him we could have green eggs and ham. "'Am" he says.
Then to nap,
ignoring the strewn objects in favor of my new little pretty. This is the Hurricane hat, found due to my lovely blog friend Preeti and using some delicious Noro Iroha.
And a little planning for a little girl that will soon be one, right on Easter day itself.
Thinking of cuddly pants and a cute t-shirt and loving that I have a little girl in my life to shower with bright flowers and a twirly skirt or two.
After nap, some garden time, picking bok choy and playing with our food.
And then, late afternoon, a quiet reprieve, some time for myself to sit and thumb through some pages to find inspiration, add a few stitches and write the all important lists (Thanks, Tim).
Hope your Sunday had all the things you need to shore up for another week. I am already looking forward to the next.
