It's so hot this summer that often the only pleasant time in the yard is early in the morning, and even then the moist warm air hints at what's to come. We often have breakfast outdoors, on the picnic bench that's part of the girls' swingset. It's a sweet quiet time for all of us, the girls' energy not quite yet what it becomes after eating. I've been keeping meals simple this summer, and as CC and Sabrina say we usually ave "something salty (egg, smoked salmon, bacon or lately, fried ham), a sweet thing (bread with honey has been a favorite lately) and some fruit." Even though I'm often not hungry in the mornings, I try to eat the same things they do. I pretend I already have my third girl here and that I'm making breakfast for all my children.
Welcome. I am so glad you've come. My name is Patricia and this is a journal of my family's days and the inspiration that shapes them. I like to write, I like to make collages, I like to make things with my children and alone, and I like to share with others. My guiding beliefs are that every moment and every day are meaningful and that good times strung together make a happy life. If you agree, I hope you find something here to inspire you in your next good + happy day.
