Sunday

weekending...

this weekend i
sat out front on a blanket,
drinking tea and knitting,
pearl lying by me,
on the grass,
in the warm sunshine while
three littles ran around and played,
rolling in grass, picking flowers and
two middles and the eldest played
survival,
pretending they were stranded,
trying to start fire with moss and magnifying glass,
{no fire started, but they did make smoke!},
purifying pond water by boiling it over fire
{fire started with a match}
and making fishing hook with sticks and
attempting to fish in the pond.
and it makes this mama heart soar to see
sixteen year old playing all day
with nine and nearly eight year old,
and hearing laughter and such
joy,
{and if you're interested the game ended when they were
eaten by a bear}.
husband grilled tri-tip,
and if you're not from california
and have never eaten tri-tip,
this is the.
best.
meat.
and today is another outdoor day,
after church we came home and haven't been in much,
and it's beautiful and
no,
we are not watching the superbowl,
we are just sitting out,
playing,
reading,
husband and eldest are
fixing a car and
ahead of us lies an easy nacho dinner
and lots of love.
