Here's our little girl shortly after she woke from her nap on Sunday -- she's still solemn, and she's not sure about the headband that came with the little outfit Nana brought. But she can't stay solemn very long . . .and she wanted to play dress-up with the new duds, but only if she got to layer over what she was already wearing . . .don't you love the full hippie? Peace, girlfriend!
And here's a shot that almost captures the speed of her newly-mastered walking. . .
No Pilates this week (a break between sessions) and I've taken the evening off from marking to catch up with blogs, to read a new mystery (I'll tell you about it later over at my reading blog -- highly recommended, fun!), to plan the weekend's packing, and I even ran through a few scales and read my way through a Bach Prelude and Fugue and some Brahms Intermezzi. I've taken on one too many extra activities this term, and with last weekend's Run and visit with my sisters, next weekend's Opera, and a talk I have to give at the Public Library tomorrow night (our small university is all about "community engagement" and "knowledge mobilization" right now -- what a bandwagon!), I'm very glad to have one quiet night. And these photos of my dear little girl remind me of what's important, what to make time for -- really, they just make me happy!
Coming up soon, when I find some time:
Some new wardrobe items I splurged on (after some doing without to save)
My new glasses
Some thank yous and blog links
Catch-up on movies
A Tale of Two Purses
And a post mortem/de-briefing of the Spring Wardrobe Capsule Challenge
Possible Travel Plans
Oh dear, life really is too short, isn't it? And you know they're grabbing an hour out from under our feet one of these days, very, very soon . . .
