through the window.



tonight i headed to the suburbs.
i stood in the large, well-lit kitchen.
i washed the lettuce. and dried it.
60 minutes on the television.
i chopped the apples, toasted the slivered almonds.
prepared a meal for the people i most love.
and i thought. this will be such a nice life i'll live,
this cooking (well, salad-making) on a sunday night in a home of my own.

but not yet.

there is something therapeutic about cooking a sunday night dinner for people you love...

it's like the calm before the storm of monday.

someday, if it's what you want it will be yours!

Tis. It is a lovely life. A scrambled, mad life at times, but then you remember that life is very good and you're very blessed.

Cheers to you this lovely afternoon. -cbm

i dream about doing this in my own home often, and have to remind myself that it's just not quite yet. it's a wonderful thing to look forward to! and to enjoy in a little different way now, too. :)

In the small town where I grew up, it's unimaginable to not want a white picket fence, lots of land, and kids almost immediately. I couldn't be more off...baby steps for me...A one bedroom in "the city" is about all I can handle at the moment! One day for me as well... ;)

I love this. There's something great about getting out of the city for a while, breathing in the fresh air and having some space. Glad you enjoyed it, even if you're not ready for more of it quite yet!
