Feeling Good...

5.28.2008



Had some fun playing with my camera this past weekend. It was just nice to have the weather cooperating finally and so I snapped some shots on a walk that Ethan and I took while at the cottage.


Had to get one of the rhubarb...reminds me of my grandma's homemade strawberry-rhubarb jam. Also reminds me of a rhubarb spice cake that I used to make. I'll have to get busy and look for that recipe and share it once I do as it was so good.


Today was a productive day, not so much as in getting "work" done, but as in getting to spend some quality time with Zoey. So important to remember to stop and just chill with her a bit, giving her some one-on-one time is so important not only for her but for me. We went to a park here in town that is along one of the many lakes and for a while it was just us and we played and built some sand castles and then she met and played with two other little girls for a good two hours or so. It was so nice to be out in the sun and to see her cheeks flushed and rosy from running and playing. Can't even tell you how happy I am that all signs of winter have now seemed to fade. After our afternoon at the park we came home and I prepared a nice home cooked meal using a new recipe for manicotti that I found off the internet (which was really good and easy by the way!) and a fruit salad to boot and to say that we enjoyed it would be an understatement! Love these kind of days. The ones where you are able to see that it is just enough and that all is good and the kind where everyone is tired and full and happy at the end of the day...gotta love that.
