a time capsule for the dark days




 I love stumbling through the archives of these pages.  Especially when it's been a rough day, a cranky day, a no nap day.

I love coming across reminders of bright spots that happened once upon a time.




These pictures are evidence of one such bright early autumn day - a day last week when all three of us escaped to the park to enjoy the last of Seattle's sunshine.







I made Alice laugh until she spit out a mouthful of Cap'n Crunch.




And after we had talked and whispered and laughed until our stomachs growled, we escaped for dinner on the water.
Watching dogs jump into the chilly waves as they chased water-logged sticks.



Alice and Chip took turns throwing rocks into those same waves.





And I counted myself lucky, so very lucky.

Her hair is so long! So cute!

I don't know if it's the long hair, but suddenly Alice has lost her baby and she looks much more like a little girl. Sigh.

Where did you go, woman? Everyday I look, and everyday you are NOT MEETING MY CREAMY NEEDS.
