This Sunday, I’m participating in “Stream of Consciousness Sunday”, hosted by Jana of Jana’s Thinking Place. The idea is to type for 5 minutes, a brain dump of sorts, and then to publish without editing the writing at all.
Yesterday was one of the first days in months that we have been able to stay at home and relax. Addah spent Friday night at her friend’s house, so it was just Lakin, David and I. We made cinnamon swirl bread (delicious!) and chocolate chip bread (okay, but not as good as expected).
David finished his drawing of Clara, which he started months before we had any idea what she would look like, but is amazingly accurate. It is gorgeous, as his artwork always is… but this one is so special to us, such a perfect representation, both of how she looked at birth, and how she might look today, if she had lived.
I framed his drawing, along with select pictures of the girls from our picture albums. David hung our picture frames, which have been patiently waiting to be displayed, since we moved in almost two months ago. The effect is lovely, making the living room even more cozy and comfortable than it already was.
Toward the end of the day, Addah’s friend’s mom brought her home. We sat on the playground and watched the girls play for over an hour, just talking and enjoying the company.
It was a very good day, one of the best I’ve had in months.
