Day(s) of Greatness

Yesterday was nearly perfect.

It rained. Real water poured from the sky. It was beautiful.

I made Abby a new skirt. It’s not a perfect fit but she really likes twirling around in it and seeing as how it was less than half a yard of on-sale fabric, I couldn’t care less if she runs through a mud puddle wearing it.

{I have no idea why she’s wearing different socks on her hands and feet. It’s just who she is.}

Some of Granny’s pickles made their way to my kitchen. Bonus- she sent an individual jar for each of us and she even labeled them! It may seem silly, but it really is necessary as my husband and I have opposing approaches to these pickles.

Matt came home, saw his name, popped the lid, and started gobbling them down right then. I swaddled my jar in a blanket, sang it lullabies, and planned how to make them last forever.

{Seriously. Some things aren’t meant to be shared.}

Homemade basil peach pizza. That’s all there is to say about it.

That was yesterday.

But then today came with its own version of heaven. Today it was 73° and overcast. Abby went outside with me as soon as she woke up and then ran into her room and came to the breakfast table wearing this:

It has been hot here for a really long time. She needs to be eased into new situations. Kind of like the fish from the pet store- slowly adjust the water temperature, not all at once or they go into shock.

I decided she needed to be exposed further, like it or not. So we went to our favorite coffee shop (Jupiter House) and she chose a huge chocolate cream cheese muffin.

Then I drank coffee while she ran around the courthouse lawn. She loved it.

{Why does she look so big?}

{And why does she have so much hair?}

{There’s my little elfish baby.}

Then the afternoon was filled with open windows and cool breezes and the sounds of James Taylor.

And I walked in on this:

I think she’s serious about being an animal extractor. She told me their mouths were taped closed so they wouldn’t bite anyone.

{They do look pretty harmless this way.}

If tomorrow is anywhere near as wonderful as today and yesterday were, you may find me skipping down the sidewalks of my neighborhood.

    Noticed that Abby had matching socks on…just vertical match instead of horizontal. The left hand/foot matched and the right hand/foot matched.
