The Little Things {Lately}

  • Evening hot cocoa.
  • The stove roaring through the night.
  • Finally feeling confident in the possibility of it all...
  • Connecting with my sisters through Pinterest.  Yay for another way to keep in touch!
  • Baking to find THE sugar cookie recipe.
  • Secretly loving Jet's obsession with golf balls.  There must be 100 half-chewed golf balls around the property.  He's so cute the way he will sprint at the sight of one soaring through the air. You probably guessed that Husband doesn't find this as cute as I do.
  • The maple tree off the back porch that is glowing red this October.
  • The handful of rosemary that my friend handed me upon my leave.
  • The piles of books stacked near where I sleep.  It must be a comfort thing.  Comfort or hoarding issue...I'm not entirely sure, but I'm okay with it.
  • The mere thought of bookshelves. filled. high. upon the wall. one day.
  • Opening my mailbox today, to find not one,
    but three brown parcels of supplies for the shop.
  • The way Asher calls, "Jet, come here, boy!" in his newly acquired three year old country twang.  Acquired from where?  We don't know. 
  • Chicken Adobo dinner nights.
  • The sweet emails that are randomly dropped my way, that say things like I thought of you in the subject line...
  • Watching friends do what they love...write scripts, make short films, start non-profits, teach, start their practices, interview for their dream job after two grueling years of school work.  The passion is infectious.
It's all about the little things, no?

With everything you list, Cass, most of us are thinking, "Yeah, I love that, too!" Thanks for writing for us, and you do it so eloquently!

I love your sweet little life, mama. Getting packages is the best feeling. :)

You guys make me smile! xx

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
