Beauties from my day

:: Small toes peeking out the bottom of a big pink nightshirt, morning-frizzy golden hair, blue eyes and a lovely smile

:: A look of recognition and a small smile from a warm and soft and squishy little guy

:: A jar full of zinnias from the garden, all colors, on our table

:: New curtains in our main room, gorgeously turquoise and so happy. With blueberries on them.

:: Tissue-paper rainbow window stars. I'm thrilled to have finally made some for our windows.

:: Steak marinade with lemon juice, olive oil, garlic, etc., with freshly chopped garden herbs ~ parsley, cilantro, basil, oregano. It smells so wonderful!

:: Clean sheets

:: Peanut butter toast

:: Sharp colored pencils

:: A sparkly clean bathroom. It makes me ridiculously happy every time.

:: Drying eucalyptus from the garden

:: A beautiful picture of a robin's nest on my wall from brother Will's collection

oh, zinnias, I just love them.

I know, that squeaky clean bathroom gets me every time!

I remember how much I craved meat when I was nursing. Check out the steak marinade I got from a friend - it's tasty and very effective :)

TURQUOISE WITH BLUEBERRIES???? I'm beside myself with curtain-love already. And THAT doesn't begin to compare with my desire to see, hear, taste, smell those two babies!! Both the frizzy golden-haired one, and the smiling, squishy one! I'm long overdue for a visit! It's so good to be home. Your daddy and sibbies have made it such a welcoming evening/morning! Love you all so much.
