blogging my way through the everyday

Contentment

The best part of yesterday was raiding my friend’s rhubarb patch (I’ll bake a pie tomorrow that we won’t eat–we’re just not big pie eaters) and picking buttercups at the creek with the neighbor girls.

The best part of today was finding some really cool yard sale treasures–like this photo box–for just $1.50,

                                                                                                                                                                   Meeting Max (who lives a few doors down),     

planning this really cool idea I have to paint the stairwell to the basement black with daisies on it,

and saying ‘sorry’ to my son for getting upset and yelling at him earlier.

I had this extraordinary friend, Sophie.  I met her in Montreal, at a bus stop on my way to church one morning (she’s from Egypt and makes the best baklava known to man).  I ended up going to her church instead that morning, and she ended up becoming like a second mom.

“Heather,” she told me one night while I was visiting.  “Always keep a short account with God and everyone else.” 

I haven’t always been able to do that, to be honest.  But, at times like this I  really have to wonder what’s up with that.
