The deal: Use our themes or use your own - just let us know what is 'currently' going on with you. Be sure to stop by and say hello to the other bloggers linking up - especially to my amazing co-host Randalin of Kale & Beans.
This week's themes:
bringing, running, listening, creating, buying
Loretta has been Bringing a lot of family love to every conversation lately. She loves to tell you, whenever the subject of Otto comes up, that they are a brother and a sister and they love each other. She's really into the Max & Ruby book we have because, "They are a brother and a sister and they love each other." Sometimes she just points to each of us, says our names, and then, "We love each other." Yes we do, miss. It's the sweetest.
I have been Running out of steam for the past ::checks watch:: few years and just cannot say enough how excited I am to be entering into our last year of Rob as a grad student. For now, when not at work, I'm just wearing slippers and drinking coffee and wandering around my house waiting out the days, quite a bit. Soon that will change to flip-flops and wandering around my backyard... Anyways, I'm such a Dickens character. How melodramatic.
At this exact moment I am Listening to my kids play in the toy room (just around the corner from where I'm sitting with my coffee typing out this post). Usually on Thursdays I wake up at 4am so I can quietly write in peace for an hour. Last night Loretta came into my bed in the middle of the night and so I ended up snuggling in with her and when I woke up, she did, which woke Otto. I love them with all I've got but writing blog posts when they are "up and at em" is not my favorite. So many requests interrupting every thought. I am not a creative who thrives in chaos. Not at all.
We are looking forward to Creating some short little adventures for ourselves in Oregon this summer. Our last warm season in the state and we realize we haven't seen all there is to offer by a landslide. So hopefully we find a way to pack up and go on some daytrips over the next few months. I can't believe how full our weekend calendar is already though. So many things going on all the way through the end of May. It's insane.
I have not been Buying a thing outside of groceries lately. And nothing exciting on the grocery side of things. Although I am thinking of buying all the trappings for a verde tortilla soup soon. Rob will be away for a bunch of days and since he's our resident vegetarian I thought I'd try a little meat based something something that we would normally make veggie. Just a little meat party, I guess.
That was this week & here are next week's theme's:
looking, loving, planning, starting, wishing
