Every tree limb overhead seems to sit and wait, while every step you take becomes a twist of fate.
Up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road...

Sometimes My Baby Room Needs Encouragement

Last night I was making tacos in preparation for our weekly L.ost tv watching date.

J ran out to the store to get avocado and cheese.

Along the route from delivering food from the kitchen to the living room coffee table I could hear the baby room calling softly.

I wandered in with my glass of ice water and turned on the light.

I stroked the gray and blue car seat. I promised it that we'd go soon to the firestation to learn all about safe installation.

I plumped the pillow I finally finished sewing last weekend. It looks extremely pleased to be given a place of honor on the amazing C.raigslist find yellow glider.

Sometimes I think the glider gives me a pitying look and a tiny glide of sympathy when I visit.

I took a moment to consider where we should hang the plastic tulip shaped lamp.

I read What's Wrong Little Pookie (my favorite Sandra Boynton book) again. And laughed out loud. Again.

Then I turned off the light and left.



  1. glad you visited. we need to do that every once in awhile!

  2. Sounds like a very thoughtful visit. Love your pillow and I am def going to order that children's book.
