1. Matthew was under the weather last week, and Andrew, on his own, made him this card. It made MY day. I love when my kids get along and care for each other. When they don’t, it bothers me so much. I wish it didn’t, or maybe I don’t. It’s really important to me that they are all kind to each other for the rest of their lives.
2. Patrick and I went for a COLD walk/bike ride the other day before we got a little bit of snow. It was nice to breathe in some fresh air.
3. This house is for sale. Remember this house? It makes me so sad that it’s for sale. The lady that lived there is in a special elder care facility. Her beautiful house…I know she thought she was coming back to it. Just saying that makes my eyes well up and my lungs contract and I start thinking all about sheets at estate sales. I would like to think that a young couple with a little child or two or three, will keep it up just as well and love it just as much as she did. I hate to think otherwise. I hope, hope, hope that is the case, because I will be heartbroken if someone doesn’t care for it.
4. I make cookies way too much. If that is even possible. Do you have a really good chocolate chip cookie recipe you would like to email me? I like them thin and crispy and buttery. I need an excuse to make more.
