Steev’s birthday party yesterday. Every single picture was taken by my children and these are all the pictures taken by them as well. They were sparing and quite artsy, methinks:
Today the sunshine continued – a tiny bite of cold creeping in. One of the nicest things for running for me are those days I have a breakthrough, marvelous session. Today was such a day. From the sighting of a woolly bear caterpiller to the boost in speed and distance and the two deer I saw and the glittering water and sunshine –
And today instead of just lifting my hand in a sedate acknowledgment of car and bike fellow travelers I did a full-on wave and smiled. And Every. Single. Car – so many – smiled and waved back! The bigger wave admittedly means I risk looking rather foolish but, I don’t care.
It was beautiful today!
From a little earlier this year: gifts I made for JJ and Alden and their two bambinos (what a total fucking score I went searching for JJs blog address and I saw B. was wearing the hoodie!):
We have a new mini-deity in our house and it’s called Minecraft. As might be expected Nels has been learning at an alarming rate. He is finally on the mend – his throat no longer sounds constricted and his tonsils are almost normal size. He still looks alarmingly thin and he has not been eating much. I’m plying bananas, milk and peanut butter and honey sandwiches. Let’s see how it goes.
I really enjoy the third picture down of Nels’ eye!
I do too! I showed all the pictures to Ralph and he said, “Well they’re not THAT good.” What a dick!
I like the abstractness of the pictures- you get the feeling of a fun gathering without the dictates of distinct settings or posed shots. Great job.
I saw that hoodie in real life today and it is too dang cute!
Thanks, and I agree! SUCK IT, husband!
That means you saw B. in real life and now I’m jelling.
It’s true! Sometimes the tales of B’s conquests leave out the fact that she is really, really sweet. Today she filled up a discarded Gatorade bottle with sand and instead of beaning my kid on the head with it, she gave it to him and let him scoop for a while. Then when he got tired of it, she took it back and poured sand on my dog. Also her hair looks like the most crazy, silky fairy wig, it is just amazing. Come visit LA!
