my week in objects (mostly).

March 19, 2021

1. these pockets.

{and filling them.}

2. this oatmeal.

{and the extra big bowlful.}

3. these well-loved gardening supplies.

{and eager planters very ready for spring.}

4. this card game.

{and one late night game.}

5. these candles.

{and the kid who has embraced dinner by candlelight.}

other things:

a community centered response.

bystander intervention training.

yes, it’s violence against asians, yes, it’s violence against women….

splendidly vast and manifold as our people are.

if all of us knew more.

nostalgia in times of trauma.

i let my closet be overrun by memorabilia.

i live joy every day in my magical abode.

it’s a parenting wilderness. we are all just doing our best to stay alive.

tiny earth co.

      Not a coupe! This is one of their everyday bowls!

    Hello, Erin! I was wondering if Silas is able to play the flower game, or is it really more for Faye at this point? My son (nearly 3) would love the flower cards – just trying to set my own expectations of whether we’d be able to play the game quite yet. Thanks for all the wonderful writing and ideas you share <3

      I’d say better for a reader or team players! Silas loves UNO though!
