November 2011 Ten on 10: YAY!!

It's my favorite day of the month. Seriously, Rebekah - brilliant. Did you know it's my favorite day of the month (especially when I'm not at work)?

It is, mama. It is.

How did I survive before our farm share box? How? If kale is the best vegetable, I'm telling you that persimmon is the best fruit. And that's my grandmothers milk glass. I swoon and smile every single time I use it.

The perfect cup for the season. We might be moving from San Francisco. I'll give you one guess as to where we're going.

What's better than the image of my sweetest heart? Why, a kaleidoscope of her images, of course.

Music class. The teacher is named Monica, just like me. She often plays this little guitar/ukulele thing that has a Spanish name I can't understand. Whatever it is, Ads is mesmerized.

This corner is the center of the world, as far as I'm concerned.

I love the way the sunlight starts to filter into the back of our house in the afternoon.
Hello, birdie.
The Blue Chair Jam Cookbook: maybe one day I will make something from this beautiful book I got last Christmas.  I mean, if I got some canning stuff for Christmas this year I could still make some orange marmalade.

Ada is napping. This sweet bird is on my wall above my bed. I will miss him when we move out.

Ada is still napping. I'm getting bored.
When we moved to San Francisco we wanted to live in an older home. The heating/cooling aspect of this decision was not so wise but there are endless details to compensate for it. This door handle, for example. How many people have touched it in the last 103 years? What stories did they have to tell?

Late lunch. I convince her to eat her strawberries by putting about 2 Tbsp of vanilla ice cream on top. It works. 
3:30 PM

Photobucket
Confession: sometimes I dress Ada in clothes that are just a tad too big so that I can pretend for a split second that she is a wee baby again. Blue toes and heels = love.

That's officially ten photographs (I snuck in an extra or two) but I just kept going. Check it out, or don't. Whatevs.

Pre-dinner preparation. We had salad with persimmon, pomegranate, local blue cheese, pumpkin seeds and grilled tuna dressed with a pomegranate balsamic vinaigrette. Please don't ask about the marker on her hands.

I love her. 


Bonus: this is from the morning. Overexposed, poorly focused, but I totally don't care. My Heart is so happy. I have a crazy smile when I'm happy - like, soulfully happy. My husband knows it the second he sees it. She has it. She makes it look good but I don't know if having a tell this obvious is a good thing.
