a little look at our week.....
the big man in red.
smelling: cinnamon, orange, and pine. cookies baking. soups simmering.
seeing: snow on the mountains....come down here snow!
anticipating: I have said this about one hundred times now....but I simply can't wait to see Les Miserables. I have watched the trailer over and over and I am just so excited to see it!
hearing: Christmas music.....all day long. I love a little Sufjan throughout the day, and then move into the old classics as night time comes (I just love Burl Ives!)
sipping: all our favorite winter time herbal teas.....have to keep the colds away. I love the Traditional Medicinals teas....this one is my favorite right now.
eating: We just made some fantastic pizza.....I didn't get a picture.....it's so dark at dinner time! But imagine this: Whole wheat crust + a simple tomato sauce + mozzarella + roasted butternut squash with salt and thyme + sauteed chard + caramelized onions + prosciutto.
making: sugar cookies! I was so happy to find these cookie cutters at a thrift store a few years back--they are the same I used growing up and I love that my kids will grow up with them too. We'll be decorating them tomorrow and saving a few of our favorites for Jolly Old St. Nick.
running: My last run was so muddy that I had grown two inches by the time I was through. Charly turned chocolate, and had mud in my teeth.....and it left me wanting more!
yoga-ing: Revolved half moon. It hurts so good.
writing: to Santa.
Dear Santa I've been good.
I wanted a blue mountain bike for Christmas and I will be good I promise! Send a letter back please. How fast can you travel Santa?
Santa Claus I want for Christmas. What I want for Christmas is an art kit. I have been good!
(something something something about) cookies.
(after she wrote the letter she decided she wanted to also ask for cardboard too. You know, for her art of course. But she thought Santa probably already knew that so she wouldn't have to add it to the letter.)
reading: my favorite Meg told me to get A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. My boy is learning about poetry right now and she promised he would love it. I love it. So much. I haven't been able to put it down--find yourself a copy!
How was your week?
feel free to play along with your own senses!
