noir et blanc

back carry
big yawn

There were two hours yesterday when Ivy actually napped and the others played quietly

and I sought solace in making a huge pot of minestrone, with my apron on and Pandora radio and there was calm. It was comfort.

When she woke up she finished about another hour or so by sleeping on my back in the mei tai. I couldn't stop looking at her face in the mirror above my sink.

root beer

Gray ate two bowls of the soup and was thrilled that I let him have his own bottle of root beer.

Later I would put my contacts in and apply sparkly makeup and have a late dinner outside with friends downtown.

It was lovely.

  1. Yesterday was lovely. I kept wanting to tell you how pretty your sparkles looked, but I kept getting distracted by things like martinis, chocolate churros, and having to pee.

  3. I'm jealous of your minestrone making. Too dang hot here for soup.

  4. Darcie,

    It is SO hot here, too, but I cranked the air and put on my fan (I mean, my Air Multiplier).

  11. Heather & all,

    I've been making this soup for years now- it's the Copycat Olive Garden minestrone and it is EVEN better than Olive Garden (I don't always add the spinach, by the way.) Gray is already on his second bowl again for lunch. They can't get enough (and neither can I.)

  12. Love the yawn. So peaceful. Doesn't black and white always make things just that more beautiful? Wonderful shots.

  18. I'm not one to drink much soda, but I do love a good root beer every now and then (and so does my 3-year-old). :)
