Five Favorites from the Weekend
Too much goodness this weekend. Don’t you just love a weekend that’s full and good? A few favorites…
Rachel discovering the Chinese checkers. I used to love playing this game as a kid. I would even play myself sometimes (nerd that I was.)
Pandora Radio and clinking ice cubes as Jim and I enjoyed a night cap on Saturday. It was enough to make us dream of future concert-going plans.
Chicken and barley soup, simmering low and slow. So fragrant and comforting, and perfect to get us through the week.
Honestly? The Ben and Jerry’s Boston Cream Pie Ice Cream that I bought on a whim. I don’t know how they did it, but that pastry cream swirl is unbelievable.
(Another favorite taste: the steel cut oats on Sunday morning. They take forever, but it’s so worth the wait.)
Holding Rachel’s glove with my glove, as we walked around in the sunny cold. I can’t think of anything cuter than her little hands in those purple gloves. I remind myself that a time will come when she won’t need to hold my hand in public, and a time when she certainly won’t want to. When she reaches out and says, Mommy hold?, I treasure the moment, reach my hand out to hers, and silently thank her for not making me ask first.
