Half a Decade.

stored in: Family and tagged:

I promised {via facebook} a Birthday Boy post last month. Oops! These days are a mixture of quiet thoughts, slowly, slowly taking shape contrasted with the all-too-familiar ease of a running car and places to go. I’m not ready to share my thoughts. I’m not even sure I could put them together in a way [...]

Party Day!

stored in: Family and tagged: ,

As I mentioned in my last post, my plans for the future are pretty sketchy. What am I doing next year? How about in five years? I don’t know. A lot of the time I don’t even know what’s for dinner in an hour, but there is one grand event that has been planned for [...]

Simple Joys.

stored in: Life and tagged: ,

Sometimes when your mind and heart are busy mulling over biggish things, it’s good for the soul to revel in the small joys of every day life. That’s my brief explanation of sorts for posting two quiet picture-posts in a row. This guy has been begging to make a kite. One day, his friends showed [...]

Good Things.

I’m no Martha, and I don’t have a whole crew of editors to make me look good, but here are a few of my own “good things” that have been bringing a smile to my face. Sweet little lady bug. Much cuter than so many of the bugs we see around here. Baby pumpkins at [...]

So just to get myself back on the board, I’m going to post something short. I feel very VERY behind on this on-line thing. There are a host of emails, messages and blog posts floating around in my head. Here’s hoping I can pound a few of them out in the near future. In the [...]

Motherhood.

stored in: Life and tagged: ,

Motherhood – a long awaited treasure for many. Something imagined, dreamed of and anticipated. Yet despite the mental pictures and plans we make, there is very little to prepare you, REALLY, for all that you will encounter as “Mom.” Mothers’ Day 2013 You may be taken aback by the simple things you find yourself needing [...]

Light & Fluffy.

stored in: Life and tagged: , , ,

Since last post was kind of a “bare-my-soul-and-write-out-what’s-been-ruminating-in-my-head” kind of a post, I thought I’d lighten up a bit on this one. I have determined that I will not save up my small miracles, waiting to name them until the bigger one I’m anticipating arrives – as if those small miracles are only worth proclaiming [...]

We’re going through some simple transformations around here, trying to bring some Christmas cheer to the place. First things first…the nativity. We’ve had this for the several Christmases, and it’s always unwrapped with great excitement. Actually, he opened his set as well as the porcelain one from my MIL, and was running around the house [...]

Nothing earth shattering over here today, just thought I’d share a few pretties… The living room is still coming together, bit by bit. I finally put my shelf {the dark brown one, in the far corner of the room} to work as more than just a landing zone for miscellaneous junk. Jonathan made the shelf…a [...]

This would be where I shamelessly post a few too many pictures of a certain blue-eyed boy… Elliot and I have back-to-back birthdays {14th & 15th}, so, as has become our custom, we headed to Accra to “enjoy”. For us, that means fine dining. Elliot The Carnivore dug into a plate of chicken wings, while [...]
