Last night was a long one, with a wide awake Mr. A and a miserable and teething baby P. We all slept in. When I went out on the porch this morning I found this, a beautiful Rosy Maple moth. I also found that someone had dropped by our house and left a container of s'mores brownies on the porch for us. A cup of coffee and one of those was my breakfast, calories be damned. It was the most amazing, lofty, chocolatey, marshmallow-y, googey delicious treat I've ever eaten and felt like a big hug. So thank you to whomever left them. Today is going to be a good day.

Things are the same in many ways. And different in many ways. Nothing dramatic or terrible. But it's easier to get out of bed in the morning and I no longer feel like my days are a toe dip into purgatory. The days are long and hard but there are also moments of joy. I had a much needed brunch with a friend today. There is a walk with another friend scheduled for later in the week. When friends ask how they can help, this is what I need. Truly.
Good Lord let's change the subject. For some reason playing cards have hit me hard. There are so many decks coming out every day that are just gorgeous. I don't do magic or cardistry (yet) and only play the occasional game of solitaire but who cares.
Mail day! $20 of my "got cash for Christmas and stuck it in a Mason jar" money ordered this:
