The boys and I went to a local outdoor farmer’s market this morning. The B Man tried his first plum (I’m not a fan so I’ve never offered them up before) and we found a watermelon that was YELLOW on the inside. Me no likey. Nevermind that it was mealy on the inside, but yellow? That’s just wrong.
I left it cut open on the counter and the elusive fly that constantly escapes my swatter was having a field day. Have at it dude.
I did laundry this morning and although it’s one of my least favorite chores, for some reason today I was just thankful to have a washer and dryer. I held the boys shirts up to my nose as I pulled them out of the dryer, taking in the sweet smell of little boy mixed with dryer sheet.
The boys and I feasted on a fruit salad full of fresh fruity goodness and after wiping the juice form our chins, we hardly had room for anything else for lunch.
After we ate they played together, hit each other, there was some screaming, some hugging, some tears and some love, just as there is most days.
It rained (again!) off and on most of the afternoon and once it stopped for a bit I headed out to the mailbox. I was excited to find magazines in the box. For some reason they make a house feel more like my home, so yeah, it was good they were there today.
This evening after Tim came home he played the Jason Mraz song “The Remedy” and I started couch dancing with Little G in my lap. I loudly sang, “I won’t worry my life away…” as Little G looked at me with his big grey/green eyes and I kissed his button nose. He smiled at my smile and I smothered him with my lovin’. THE BEST.
Today I am thankful for the little things. Farmer’s markets, plums, little boy shirts, rain, magazines, music (although a BIG thing to me actually), little noses and yes, even flies…
