joy. everywhere.

saturday

saturday means

belated haircuts for snaggle-toothed boys : cooking show (featuring elle's signature peanut-fish soup) : chili and backyard s'mores and mayonnaise cake and happy chatter at the warmly lit home of new friends : a marginally-sane computer (compliments of the hubby and the online geek squad) : salvaging frostbitten tomatoes : zee's intricate battle schemes to take over the world and/or the dining table : clean hallway floors : pittacus lore on the treadmill : prepping sunday lessons (and snacks) for my pre-k class : emails from college friends : yellow maple leaves shivering in thin sunlight : mixing corncake and apple cobbler with smallish helpers : an extra hour of crazy-dream sleep : joy everywhere

Why is it that the crazy-dream sleep always shows up in the extra hour? 'Tis a double-edged sword at times, that hour.

ps- I want to climb inside your life for a Saturday. Just a warning. If it feels a little cramped in there, look around and you'll probably see me, taking up my unfair share of space.

those extra hours of sleep, and yellow leaves in thin sunlight... yes, joy indeed, friend.
