Last Sunday was Valentines day, and I know that I told you that the mr and I don't really celebrate. Well this year I woke up on Sunday with a few tiny palm sized paper hearts laid out near the coffee tray. Then a heart in the coffee beans, and in my coffee mug. I opened the fridge and everything I touched, a little paper heart fell out or was shoved into it(a heart in my hummus) And in my jacket, all my pockets, my shoes, my toothpaste.. ...everywhere. It has been a whole week and I am still finding hearts falling out of weird places (Ii my dried lentil, in the couch cushions, and shoved into my books) EVERYWHERE!
I am not complaining. I know I am the luckiest lady here but I hope I found them all by now. (I think I might have gotten a bit snippy when a heart fell into my tea.)
And so the week has been heart filled, work filled, house and family full (as usual) The projects keep piling on which is great but crazy. So much at once, it a little hectic right now. I am going a little nuts with the weather, being a million below zero and jumping up to a nice crisp 50 above within 2 days... Its weird and crazy and making my head spin and my floors in my house so dirty. I am conflicted because it is winter and we should be living a winter life, but I am almost kinda over it now. I want to play in the dirt and plant green things and work on the outside of the house. But then again I could totally got for a huge storm with 2 feet of snow. .....
Other things. Lots of good food this week. I made falafel for the first time in a while (I'll share next week) and have eaten my weight in sweet potato pudding. Oh, and I went to my first ever acupuncture appointment. SO cool, I think I am going to do it again. I am a champ at having little needles stuck in me and laying really still. I could do it all day!
A couple of the littles spent the night this weekend and woke up the next day to a couple more. We had us our hands full with 4 little people that all want to jump on us and eat all my carrots, mustard ,and the tiny marshmallows. But such good times were had. We made sprinkle fart pancakes, played with a basket of rocks, made little sketch books and went for a little hike. Ended the day at the book store, hanging out in the kids section (I want all the kids books) and meeting up with grandma where she force feed them all gigantic cookies. The mr and I then got to drop those tiny little sugar high people back off to there lovely parents. (haha) After wobbling home, we spent the night cleaning all the sticky stuff from every surface and cleaning the toilet and surrounding areas of all the pee. (I think the boys in my family have an aversion to proper aim).. Good time.
The week has been full to say the least. And hopefully today can be a quite one, with nothing much (there is always a little) but taking it slow, bottomless cup of hot drinks, finish my book, get a nap in and maybe finish pulling all the nails from the stairs.. maybe.
I hope you all are having a great weekend doing fun relaxing stuff.
