Violet spotted a dragon fruit while we were at the supermarket and wanted to try it. I had no idea what to expect from inside or even how we were going to eat it. Youtube is amazing.
Jesse had a birthday. The day itself ended up being rather terrible so we decided to call “redo” and have a “fancy” family dinner. Or at least as fancy as it can be with paper towel napkins (don’t kill me, Marian.) because I somehow have never managed to purchase cloth napkins. The kids loved setting the table and using wine glasses as water goblets.
I wound a lot of yarn.
A future pair of socks.
A future hat.
A future sweater.
I still haven’t finished the sweater I was making for myself, but I did finish a simple little fall cowl and I’ve been reading a great deal.
Things have been simple and quiet and good. We’re busy with home projects, and homework, and soccer practice. My list of things to do grows faster than I can check things off but nothing to get in a tizzy over. It’s a happy rhythm where I go to sleep tired and wake up excited. I think that’s about as perfect of a life as you can get.
