Outside, Amazing, and First

Yum, yum, yum!
Yum, yum, yum!

It’s Saturday afternoon, and therefore time to look back on three beautiful things from the past week:

1. The weather was so lovely that I drank my coffee outside on the back porch (in my beautiful Adirondack chair) for six consecutive mornings.

2. Friday night was Stitch ‘n Pitch at the Nationals game, which I attended with sprite and Rudi. We had the great good fortune to watch Roger Bernadina make what may be the most amazing catch I will ever see live.

3. First local strawberries. Need I say more?

What’s been beautiful in your life this week?

    1. First mani-pedi of the season, California Raspberry, for $30!

    2. A solution for the open entertainment center w/glass shelves issue (James likes to chew the glass and push the buttons) – plexiglass, duct tape & Velcro 🙂

    3. It rained, briefly, for the first time in like 45-60 days.

    1. *Beautiful, rain-free 5 days. Awesome :). Like Sarah, lots of porch sitting and some putzing in the yard.
    2. Flowers everywhere — crabapple & cherry trees, lilacs, forsythia, tulips — you name it, it’s all in bud or flowering. Gorgeous everywhere!! (Won’t comment on the pollen factor )
    3. Made reservation to go see the Loons in June!!

    1. Mom’s #3 made my/our #1!!!!!!!!! We’re giddy!!!
    2. Had dinner with a girlfriend. Great laughs and stress relief.
    3. Got some parenting validation. It’s nice to be treated as an intelligent human being “despite” the fact that I’m a SAHM.

    @ Eileen: It hasn’t rained since we visited? Yikes.
    @ Mom: No lilacs here…yet. Maybe this week if we can string some nice days together…

    @ Loon (and/or Eileen, etc) — DO NOT EVER let anyone put you down for being a SAHM — it is THE most important & eventually fulfilling job you will ever have!!! You all are intelligent & have great brains! Luckily (and gracias to your Dads & hubbies), you all had/have the best of both worlds. Blessed were all of you and all I can do is glory in all your accomplishments and your beautiful families. — And, cudos as well to all the “working outside the home” Moms. It is NOT easy to keep all the balls in the air. Tiz a challenging lifestyle for sure. — And, remember, ladies, we all have done this for *equality* !! Hmmmmmm…..
