I notice

I notice she still sticks her tongue out when she works.

Rose kathryn, October 10.jpg

 I see her father in her . . . & a brother of mine.

My heart takes a leap; I smile, count, and watch her work.

Gifts:  

kids feeling better today

cool mornings

 talks with Charming while I cook

long telephone conversations with my oldest far away

wrapped in fuzziest of blankets late night talks

hot tea

work for the fisherman

yellow touches

her joy when I tell her I had to multiply a recipe by 6 . . . she thinks I’m a real cook & I laugh

her disappointment when I tell her I has a checker  . . . and I laugh harder

mac-n- cheese to share

she still sticks her tongue out when she works
