It’s The Simple Things: Life Passes In An Instagram (Week 6)

Week 6 has come to an end and I’ve managed to keep up with this whole ‘picture a day’ thing’.  I’m impressed with myself.

Thw entire week before built up to Sunday.  Superbowl Sunday.  I don’t care one thing about the football, I’m just in it for the food.  And the commercials.  I like those too.  My favorite dish on our Superbowl?  A little Caprese Salad with toasted Sour Dough French Bread. YUM!

  I often refer to our kids as vinegar and baking soda.  When you mix them together, something usually bubbles over.  Monday, on the way to school, I happened to look up and see this in the back seat.  The boy was staring out the window and the girl was singing to herself.  They were holding hands.  Neither had asked the other to do it, it just sort of happened.  There’s some sort of an adult life-lesson in there some where.

I’ve been complaining for weeks that it just doesn’t feel much like winter around here this year.  Apparently someone was listening.  My car was completely iced over Tuesday morning.  This was my view of the sun from my window.  Thankfully, it didn’t take too long to thaw things out.

Our beach vacation is a ways off yet… about 6 months… I must not be the only one really looking forward to it.  Wednesday morning, the kids packed their bags and pretended to take a beach vacation in the kitchen.  It was really cute to hear Addison play ‘mom’ to Cullen.  I can’t wait for August!

The feather still exists.  I missed getting a shot of it for week 5, but it’s still there.  It’s starting to look a bit weary though.  I’m still amazed that it’s laying in pretty much the same place it was two months ago.  We’ve had winds strong enough to take down banners and carry them out into the woods, but this little feather lays right there.

I spent Friday morning at my Dr’s office.  I hate going to the doctor.  It’s not my actual doctor, or even the visit itself, that bothers me.  It’s the waiting.  And the germs.  I can’t help but to sit in the waiting room and wonder how many germs other than the ones that brought me here are pouring into my lungs every time I take a breath.  Ick.  Anyways, the only tolerable part of the whole experience was getting to drink my coffee in peace.  I made a nice, big mug (in my sock monkey travel mug!) and kept it sealed tight until I was in the peace of the exam room.  I left with an empty cup, an RX for antibiotics and who knows what new germs.

Two of my favorite people and I headed out for dinner Saturday night at Eez Fusion.  It’s freaking delicious.  We had to wait about an hour for a table, so we ran down the way to Gymboree and shopped for the kiddos.  We managed to kill most of the hour and finally got the page for our table.  With a wind chill of 7 degrees, we were a little frosty by the time we were seated.  The cure?  A freshly steeped cup of Fruit Paradise Loose Leaf Tea.  It was amazingly perfect for such a cold night.

    I hate going to the doctors for the same reason! The tea looks and sounds divine. We just move to CA so we never really got any cold weather this year but I still love a hot cup of tea!
