My ocean! My sky! Almost every day I get to visit this beach, which is a five minute drive or 30 minute walk from my front door, and see what the water and the clouds are doing. Just putting my Bean Boots on the sand does something so good for my entire self.
Last weekend, Isaac and Mark went to New York, where Isaac started his occasional internship at Issue Project Room. He is planning to spend a few days there every two or three weeks to help them with their video and audio archives--he spent most of Monday editing for them. When he's in New York, he'll be able to stay with Zoë and commute to Brooklyn!
I stayed home with these characters, above and below.
Today, I am loving
:: Gus and Theo's sweet faces and funny personalities
:: getting to spend more time with Isaac since he's "home" "schooled"
:: these buckwheat and almond meal waffles
:: black tea with milk
:: the pellet stove on 5
:: both the word "longjohns" and my actual longjohns
:: finding sprinkles/jimmies in strange places throughout my house (I'll tell you why soon)
:: daffodils in a vase made by Max
:: our newest addiction: House of Cards on Netflix
Today, I miss
:: my brothers, especially, and other loves
:: my red sandals
:: open windows
