thursday morning.

holiday hangover over.
ciao, christmas. see you next time around.

notes to self for next time around:
- no pie = no grandma histrionics over uncooperative crust.
- wrap early, wrap often. [just do it.]
- october: buy two battery-operated brookstone wreaths.
- world market, baby.
- talk over why you're not trimming the tree.
- snowball cookies & candied nuts.
- have a plan for in-between week with just kids.
- paperwhite bulbs, for sure.

big blue cold front blowing through this morning.
grey, blustery. windchimes working it.

yummy candle lighted.
loads of laundry spinning.
bloggy catchup reading.
dreamy podcast listening.
office clearing.
intermittent girl scout cookies.

oh, & a surprise note from the little boy,
discovered first thing on the kitchen island:

[little boy] loves his mom! [heart]

finding the joy in the everyday.
love it. love him. love life.

so, what morsel of everyday life
are you savoring this morning?

There are some little things for me too--I also got all the laundry done. Well, okay, it's not put away yet, and there's one more load in the washer, but soon, soon. And I cleaned up the kitchen and just mixed up a yummy casserole. Yes, I make casseroles now. The young-un and I discovered we really like them. Cracker crumbs on top make all the difference. I've been dicking around with feng shui, to coin a phrase, and actually called on my inner-third-grader to create a green paper wreath for my front door. Looks like a third-grader did it, and I couldn't be more proud of myself! Thanks for sharing your everyday world! Love, Suzi-Cute

having the plan to handle the week or two with the kid(s) underfoot is essential!

And the little notes... <3!
