Today Anthony and I had the pleasure of having the same day off together. We snuggled and cuddled and napped the day away. I did make a taco bar for dinner and did a bunch of dishes...why does it always seem that every time I leave the kitchen, the dirty dishes seem to grow from the cabinets?!? Luckily, the Salvation Army came and picked up items today (or at least someone came and loaded them into a truck). Today was a beautiful day: Ms. Kate turned 6!!! and a school friend found out she is having a girl!!! So happy to be surrounded by the joys of life! I organized scrapbooking supplies a little and watched a new show with Tony that is kind of addicting: Pawn Stars on the History Channel; you should check it out! Tomorrow I am babysitting for the new nanny family for most of the morning, as well as dropping off a birthday gift and a comment to our home owner's association about our dues and paying for a bulk cable provider as part of those dues (boo!). Other than that, it was nice having a day at home with the husband! On a side note, I LOVE fresh (chilled) watermelon for a mid day snack-YUM! Good night, monkey! Hugs and kisses from Mom and Dad. I still can't get over how calm you seem to be compared to other mom's tales about their babies being more active around this time.
Another lesson: "In the summer, the song sings itself."-William Carlos Williams. Today is the last day of August and summer for most people. What a nice California summer we had. I think this phrase lends itself to something similar like, "stop and smell the roses," or "appreciate the present." Very fitting for the 31st of August, 2010! What a fruitful, love-filled, memorable, warm, relaxing, family-and-friends-abounding summer we've had! We're so blessed!
