today i will post an unedited snapshot of me and seth.
look at that hair! and look how tired we both look.
dan always tells me he loves my freckles. (here they are!)
today i will sip some cider.
and walk benji to pre-school.
and then walk him back home after a few hours.
and enjoy crunching the first fallen leaves.
today i will rock my babe and make him smile.
he has the best giant grin. his eyes twinkle, people.
today i will make soup in the crockpot. or maybe chili.
and i'll play pirates with benji.
and discuss costumes.
and read berenstein bears and the spooky old tree.
today i will make my bed. (and maybe nap on it too.)
and wipe the counters.
and sweep the floors.
and maybe catch a little kelly & michael.
i will play catch up with my inbox.
and maybe pull out my winter wardrobe.
which sounds a lot more glamourous than it is.
really it's more like dusting off a giant rubbermaid bin.
today i will wonder if miranda has had that baby!
and launder more clothes.
and maybe fold them during 30 rock.
today i will likely not put on a stitch of makeup.
but i will rake through my hair several times with fingers.
today i'll dive into some design archives for a client.
and perhaps clear off my desk. but not likely.
today i'll try to eat something healthy.
i cut up some broccoli into friendly little tree bites.
experts say that means i'll eat it.
today i will clean out the fridge. because i love a clean fridge.
and i'll marvel at dozens of polished green apples waiting for caramel.
today i'll feed and soothe and rock and repeat.
today i'll wonder about a new book. i'm on a roll.
just finished and thoroughly loved this one and
then quickly read (and laughed my way through) this one too.
we're listening to this lately
and am dying to get out christmas cds.
even though there are cottony cobwebs on the shutters outside.
i love halloween. am so happy it's fall.
enjoy the day, friends.
happy ten, eleven, twelve.
