dear light (at the end of the tunnel), i’m coming for you. i can see you up ahead there and i will make it. this weekend i got out of bed and i cleaned my little heart out til i was sweating and it felt good to sweat from something other than fever or too many blankets. and i know i am still too sick to run or do much else, but i hung out with my yoga teacher friends for a few hours and pretended i was well and it felt good. and then i even made dinner and cleaned it all up myself and it has been a long time since i made dinner, or cleaned dishes, so that felt good too. i love the optimism that comes with the small taste of good health. health is funny like that – i notice that we can totally take it for granted until we don’t have it and then life is SHIT. so if you are reading this and you are healthy, do a little dance for yourself or go upside down or run around the block because WOOHOOO you are very lucky! sincerely, me.
This weekend we relied heavily on our friends to help us get ready to move house. Definitely the best part of the weekend was not sitting in traffic in the pouring rain trying to rush around to furniture stores, but rather the 2 hours spent watching these kiddos play and eat cake and celebrate the end of charlie’s third year.
she’s racing towards three. ivan whispers to me ‘she’s like a real person‘ and i nod as we watch her do a somersault. she asks real questions like ‘are you feeling ok mama?’ and she points to all the letters and even proudly told me yesterday that ‘some people say swimsuit and some people say togs‘ and when i asked her what we say she thought about it and said ‘both!’
Our weekend was lazy, ordinary and wonderful in its non-eventfulness. And now here are more pictures than you would probably care for, but i borrowed a camera from a friend and had a lot of fun.
Last week we recieved some clothes in the mail from Matilda Jane Clothing and I came home from yoga to find miss M wearing ALL the items at once. She didn’t want to take them off! So the next morning we put her in one of the dresses and headed out for our usual weekend trip to the truck park and community garden. I snapped some pictures of her adventures in the Turtledove Knot Top and I’m sure you’ll see the rest of the clothes in some pictures to come. These clothes are the absolute sweetest – so much personality and such good quality (just like M).
Matilda Jane have kindly given us a $50 voucher to give away to one of you – so if you’d love some gorgeous free clothes (they have adult clothes too!) just leave a comment below (and maybe tell me what you’d buy!) and I’ll pick a winner next week!
UPDATE: random.org picked comment number 4! Congratulations Paloma! I hope Sophie enjoys her new outfit!
