"Sweety, chew with your lips closed, PLEASE." (I ask for the 10th time during dinner.)
"Like this?" RAT
"Yes, thank you, just like that... but without the interpretive dance and humming."
|DOT reading last Sundays comics,|
today. Not a laughing matter, apparently.
|A very sweet, nearly toothless, old lady dog, |
wearing a sweater, looking shocked.
This makes me smile whenever I see it.
wearing my Grandmothers apron,
just as I have been daily for weeks.
Loving that she wore it to do the same things I am.
Looking a bit haggard,
but feeling very lucky to have so much homegrown food to preserve,
a wonderful home to keep clean,
a loving husband to spend my life with,
and healthy kiddos to chase after and haul to practice,
all mixed up together,
making me this way.
I'll take a little haggard with all that other wonderful.
