It seems that so much has change in just a few days. I don’t want to forget these days, so I will make sure we have this page to come back to and enjoy. Right now:
:: Lucas lost his first tooth last week. Took a whole week to leave it for the tooth fairy to come. We were all enjoying this moment.
:: Lucas also had his first sleep over at a friend’s house few weekends ago. It seemed that when he returned in the morning, he was that much bigger, my littlest one.
:: Siena had her first swim meet last week also. It was lots of fun and I don’t know what I would give to bottle those smiles we got before and after each race from Siena from the side of the pool. This is her thing right now and we are all loving it.
:: I’m enjoying so much our warm and cozy quilt I finished for our bed. I love seeing those colors and touching how soft it is.
:: I’m looking forward to seeing what the bees have done in our beehive since we last opened it last summer.
:: Enjoying seeing the excitement to plant and get the garden ready. And especially seeing Siena search and find all sorts of containers to make little greenhouses for her seeds.
:: I’m loving seeing Siena water her seeds everyday. And even more fun is to see how exciting it is when a new little seedling starts sprouting in those tiny containers where she’s planted the seeds.
:: I know that even being ready to get planting and weeding, I’m still enjoying the colder weather. I do love rain and cold.
:: I’m enjoying seeing the flowers peek from the ground and on the trees, knowing that even the calendar tells us it’s spring time, it doesn’t seem to be quite here yet.
:: enjoying being home with my kids. It is such a special treat for sure.
:: a little scattered at all my options of making. Should we make more candles? How about lip balm or a new lotion? Or should we try to make soap? Knitting? Sewing? So much goodness to choose from but very exciting.
:: enjoying this new (to me) tea, Bengal Spice, in our mugs we were gifted from our friends Debdutta and Mithu. And hoping someday we’ll get to see the north east part of India.
:: loving our kombucha. We are giving it a try again now that we are back, and though it’s been cold, I left it a little longer than in the summer, and it was so good. Everyone at home really liked it. I’m trying new teas, all decaf, and they’ve turned out really good.
:: Siena and Lucas found some carrots we planted last spring and were left all this time. A little tough, but it was great to eat something from our garden!
:: enjoying the sun when we get it.
:: I loved my whole day with Mark, when Lucas and Siena had their day at Trackers this week. This was the first time we’ve been by ourselves for more than 4 hours at a time, together, just the two of us, in almost 10 years. Never had we done this, since Siena was born. Crazy, but I had never thought about it and it was just nice to hang out. We went to our favorite bookstore downtown and spend the whole time immersed in my own books, not having to keep track of anybody. Just enjoy reading, browsing and looking around. Not multitasking, just sitting down reading.
:: enjoyed a surprised stop at the doughnut place downtown, to bring donuts for those little people of ours, that were having fun up in the farm, planting, hiking, checking out the baby goats they saw and helped being born two weeks ago.
:: I am enjoying my new and the first issue of Taproot. So filled with inspiration.
:: I am happy to had seen a friend from long ago and catch up with our lives during lunch. And loved listening to Lucas and Siena tell her their experiences in India. Love the way they relive our stay there, and don’t want us to forget too many details yet.
:: I am so happy we got to spend a whole week together, seeing friends, and enjoying breakfast and lunch together with Mark off from work. I love spring break!
Have a great weekend.
