my week in objects (mostly).

February 16, 2018

five little things that made my week. 

1. watercolor hearts.

{painted and pinned post-bedtime.}

2. this stack of love notes.

{nothing better than dictated valentines.}

3. this scarf.

{for my own touch of something colorful.}

4. these reorganized books.

{for lining up just so.}

5. these tulips.

{for being unabashedly pink.}

other things:

the killing of children in sanctuaries of learning.

vote them out.

to stop a plague.

truth and creativity for oppressive times.

wild heart.

maybe feeling a little freer than before.

crochet never looked so sweet.

not to do more

    ‘ll keep Lent. Restrictions in food – not the most important thing, much more important is the lack of excesses and entertainment at this time.

    Thank you for sharing the NYT article. I’ve often felt the same feeling of peace with prayer as I do with meditation, neither of which I practice with the regularity I ‘should.’ Isn’t it funny how we sometimes shy away from what will most serve us?

    I read the titles of the books in your post, and I just wanted to say that I love Cynthia Rylant’s “Life.” It’s the book I pull off the shelf and read to my two-year-old daughter whenever one of us has had a difficult day (or it’s just dreary and we need a dreamy pick-me-up to go along with hot chocolate). It’s so comforting, and I like to think that she will remember reading it with me when she’s older and I’m not there to end every difficult day with her.

    Do you know/have “Extra Yarn” By Jon Klassen and Mac Barnett? Barnett writes and Klassen illustrates (he of the Hat-Back books) and it is my very favorite of my children’s books. Triangle is pretty great, too, but the illustrations in EY make me very happy.
