just today

So I did some laundry and washed some dishes. I mopped the floor a little (very little) and washed the inside of my dining room window. I changed my sheets, vacuumed and tidied up a bit. That is just about all of what I did today.
Oh wait, I also sat and watched I Love Lucy with Irene while she (Irene) said "Lucy cry, Lucy cry" over and over again. I thought that was an astute observation for a 2 year old. She basically explained the entire premise of the show. I listened to her beautiful, if somewhat tone-deaf, singing. I also received a drawing from Anthony, of a red and orange striped car. Quite the fetching color combination, I just have to say! I then watched him teach his sister how to draw with such patience and love. A proud moment for a parent, for sure. Edgard and I then had dinner with the children and we laughed and laughed. I am not sure that I really remember what we were laughing about, but I am almost certain that it wasn't even that funny. Dinner is long since over, but this contented feeling of nerdly oneness is still beautifully overwhelming. Yep...just a regular day.


  1. What a beautiful picture you painted of one day in your life. While I was reading the entry, it occurred to me that sometimes the ordinary days that we have can be so special. I especially like Irene's plot summary, and your description of her plaintive crooning. Thank you for sharing a special glimpse into your world.

  2. I can't complain. I can't---but I do.
