my week in objects (mostly).

August 11, 2017

five little things that made my week.

1. this tote of borrowed things.
{going back from whence they came.}

2. these red runner bean flowers.

{because wonders never cease.}

3. this little loupe.
{for suddenly getting some love from a tiny scientist in the family.}

4. this backpack.
{for saving my back and sanity on long commutes.}

5. this bowl of summer fruits.
{the fruit for being delicious, the bowl for marking five years married.}

other things:

given something that was good and received it as something that was perfect.

barnacles and oysters and seaweed. (plus quilts.)

quitting the internet.

instagram playgrounds.

baby cactus.

undercover tissues.

eat your zukes.

bees + hexagons.

it must be addressed in the tiny nooks and crannies of childhood.

    I’ve been eyeing that summer squash recipe this week! Now I know what to get at the market tonight.

    The vegetable soup story spoke to my heart. It’s the flip side of knowing oneself I think. The older I get the more I know what it truly is to be me, I know what suits me, what I love most…I grow courageous in choosing what I know delights me. But it also means the long list of what annoys, confounds, bothers, irritates….seems to grow by the day. I was once easy to please. ‘Whatever’ truly was fine with me. Any homemade vegetable soup would be lovely. But now, not so much. If it’s not perfect, it better be close. And even then, it still may not please me. Sigh.

    How do you keep all these lovely off-white fabrics clean, especially on the NYC subway??

      Ha! Frequent washing and spot treating! Plus an oxygen booster! We use one by Nellie’s Naturals and really like it! More on this soon!
