Ships and Beach
Amidst the flurry of activity and travel around my birthday, I didn't get a chance to sit and think about the new year ahead of me. I think of birthdays much like people think of New Years. An opportunity to make delicious lists! Of course. Lists of things I want to do, try, accomplish. A list of foods I want to try and make or bake. A list of places I want to visit. A list of crafts I want to attempt. A list of movies I want to see, music I want to try out. There are other goals, too--weight I want to lose, pants I want to fit into. Hair that should be trimmed and nails that should be grown out. Today's task is to design a pattern for my monthly journal/calender. It'll be a place for me to put all of the above lists. I'm thinking horizontal navy stripes--like the ones I see in almost every window here in Newport. Seems very nautical.
Mother's Day was a sweet day. We took Papa down to the ships, made cinnamon rolls, bought a new plant (Italian Heather--such beautiful pink), checked out the beach and got a lot of sun. A lot. So much that I had to take a nap. In my bed. With the sunshine streaming in. Let me tell you, those are the types of naps people drool over. Actually, maybe the drooling was just me. In any case, it was a lovely day.
Madeleine is watching Peter Pan, one of her favorites when William isn't awake to demand Batman. William is still snoozing--my little sleeper! We have ships and beach on the agenda. I'll apologize now--you're going to see a lot of both during our two months here. A lot of them!
