My favorite picture of the moment. Bill doesn't get why I like it and I can't put my finger on it. It just speaks to me.
I spent an hour at the Botanical Gardens this morning. A nice break from the
chaos  potty training. (btw Nolan is starting to rebel a bit, so we are backing off and letting him lead. Really the hardest part of parenting so far!)
As I was walking through the gardens, I was again thinking about how, even when I am all alone with just my thoughts to worry about, I still can't relax and just s-l-o-w down. I was walking through the gardens like I was training for the Johnnycake Jog. I just can't shift gears from Mommy herding twinadoes to being alone. I'd take a picture and quick move on to the next garden. Why can't I just sit down and listen to the birds sing for a minute?
On a totally different subject, I stopped at the Big Bird (Giant Eagle) and scored cheap cereal. Really cheap cereal. Like 25 cents a box for Honey Bunches of Oats & 1.50/box for Kashi that normally costs 3.39/box. Also enjoyed the cheap Reynolds Wrap (1.00 for 60 ft.) because, really, there is no substitute for good foil.
Nothing like some good deals to get my blood flowing. I know, it is a sickness. But, my bill started off being $54 and ended at $28.
