november seventeen: engaged

do you hear the angels sing when the early morning sunshine streams in?

remembering Rule #6...

...which leads to...

choosing Joy
and Love
and Goodness

a clean kitchen floor before 8:51 a.m.

a popsicle within the first three minutes of waking up

(I can only akin it to an especially fine cup of tea)


dances and a curtsy in a frufru skirt

bike rides (solo) through the neighborhood

walking adventures though the neighborhood
with a whip and a light saber

plans for a sleepover with cousins

leaf chromatography

world of goo

a list for Santa

animated hero classics: Benjamin Franklin

* * *

and I dunno what else.

I'm thinking something
that looks and feels like

a book
and clean sheets.

we'll see you tomorrow.


  1. Oh I love those days, when they want something like popcicles for breakfast. I usually just say, ohhhhhhhhh fine.

  2. World of Goo was loved by all at our house. We played it on the computer and on the Wii. Oddly, the Elf (he's seven now, but probably six when we started playing) prefers using the mouse.

  3. My kids are thinking about a sleepover with cousins too. This weekend. I hope nobody gets scared in the wee hours of the morning... I won't want to (but of course I will) go pick them up.

    Here's hoping for fun sleepovers!

  4. Yep, we have those requests for early morning unusual things to eat sometimes. Our Noah (2) woke up at 4am this morning asking for a cup of tea, an orange and to go play outside..not strange things to eat but strange for that time of morning.


Thanks so much for sharing your thoughts!
