Pretty: my new mantle letters. I bought a full year’s worth, beginning with PRAY for Lent and now ALLELUIA for Easter. (I can’t tell you how excited the children were to see that Alleluia!)
Happy: one benefit of this snowy April has been the quality of our inside time. (Why is that? Better light than in the spring?) Tuesday afternoon, J and I sat at the table and played Scrabble while O sat next to me crafting an elaborate Lego set for the stop-action Ninja “film” he’s planning. (P.S. HOAX was my word. I got double word score for it.)
Funny: two long (for me) runs this week with my running partner. We came upon a high school with a track yesterday. I had never actually run on a track before. We did one lap, which was not a sprint. The photo is entirely staged. But the smile on this photo is truly how happy I feel when I’m running. Most of the time.
Real: Remember those tulips I was threatening to pull up myself? Now they’re blooming.
