A long day with the kids and with no Craig. The warm fall colors stirred up by a crisp fall breeze smooth over this ache. Missing him. Just got back from a neighborhood walk. Pink, droopy balloons out on one porch signifying a bygone birthday party. Kids tipping each other in a wheelbarrow at the park. A couple and their dogs.
Having a lovely time up here. The company is comforting and easy. Mom's nifty new MacBook Pro with wireless everything is super sexy and calling my name. A laptop...hmm, anything that facilitates more time in bed.
Our last activity tonight was lounging and not-so-lounging in the cool cool grass out front. We rolled around and took turns being the "bad guy" and, as Lucy added, the "happy bad guy" (aka good guy). Hazel ate dead flower buds and loose rocks while Seth piled fistfuls of grass onto our heads. A warm bath topped us off. Enter my walk. Now, to read? Bake some scones? Play a game? Flop in front of the TV? or go out on the town for some wild crazy fun--in Provo? You'll never know.
