Ordinary Day

Bowls full of caked on rice are strewn about the kitchen; remnants of last night's dinner which, for the kids, consisted solely of rice. The adults had Martha's Asian Stuffed Cabbage Leaves. Apparently cabbage is not an appropriate offering for children. No additional offerings were made.

Overnight the laundry multiplied like a couple of love-starved rabbits; clothes are spilling over the baskets and onto the floor. Yesterday's load is still laid out over the living room couch.

The upstairs is an unspeakable disaster except for the girls' room which is now clean. Mom fully expects to come home tomorrow morning to find her housework undone.

A portion of the carpet appears to be covered in glue - permanently. It goes well with the permanent marker on the wall and paint on the windowsill.

The kitten has endured his daily squeeze.

The sun is out.

Yoga was good.

Mom and little Sis swam in the ducky pool.

Now it is time for afternoon carpool then the work which pays the bills.

It's just another ordinary day.


Happy Love Thursday!
