This Morning.

The temperature has dropped to the low thirties and the deck is covered in ice.
Even the stove and this cup of yesterday's coffee can't get me moving around the house.
The air feels thick and blue this morning, and under the covers is where I want to stay.

The kids are snuggled in close to me, catching up on cartoons--one with her thumb in the mouth and she forgets I can see.  She forgets she even does it, as she's been planting that thumb in her mouth since her time in my womb.  There's proof in the ultrasound photos.

Jet is full of puppy dog wines and most likely thoughts of the chickens up the road. 
Asher tells me, "I love you Mommy, I will never color on walls."
My kitchen table is covered in fabric, paper, glitter and glue,
and the kids have close to destroyed the rest.  I loath facing the mess.

I've heard two out of three tummies growl and it is enough to pull me out of bed.
The day officially begins now, starting with a fresh pot of coffee, a batch of Belgian waffles and worship music on Pandora.  Worship always changes the blues.

Blessings to you today,

You've captured the essence of Sunday morning perfectly. Sundays at your house sound swoon-worthy. If only it were in the thirties here! xo

That sounds like the perfect morning. I must say, i am very excited for the cold weather and the snow though(: hot cocoa, cuddling in layers of blankets, sleeping in, slippers, etc... Love ya lots, --Taesha

Your blog posts are always so poetic. Simple, everyday things that sound beautiful when you describe them. Love reading them.

I'm new to your blog (I came over from Yes and Yes) I love it here! It's so peaceful and poetical.

Our Sundays start with coffee and waffles too! I think I should hang that sign "God bless Sundays" on my wall in my someday kitchen.

That "I'll never color on the walls', was too too cute!!

“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
