Ephemera And Musings

It's been a pretty perfect day. I had so much fun with my boys. All three of them. And with Jessie, too. Before she got here, the boys and I walked down to the post office and of course I made them pose for the traditional picture.

Owen is enamored today with his Winnie The Pooh pillow. I think he's really revving up for his sister to be born. He was extremely interested today in playing with and holding August who is definitely not a skinny little newborn any more. 

He's very good with him. Protective and interactive and gentle. I think he's going to be actually helpful as a big brother with this coming-soon baby. Now Gibson? Well...I think maybe he's undergoing a little uncertainty about the whole deal. He's been the baby for quite a while. He'll come around, just as his mother did when Jessie was born. 

We took August out to the swing porch today for the very first time. It was an event! 

And then of course he decided that he needed to eat. Jessie and I were laughing at him later for fussing while she was getting ready to nurse him because he's probably never had to wait for longer than maybe an entire minute before getting what he wanted.

Would you look at all of those long legs? 

August is smiling quite reliably these days. His whole face opens up the like the sun and that pretty little cupid bow of a mouth makes the prettiest smile. He will also stick his tongue out at you if you stick your tongue out at him. And he has complete conversations now in that sweet baby-language, already learning the patterns of human verbal communication. I couldn't stop kissing him today. I would have a very serious little chat with him and then just dive in and kiss his face over and over. He's going to think I'm crazy. 
He will be right. 
I told him today how lucky he is to have the mama and daddy he has, the grandparents he has, the aunts, the uncles, the cousins. And then I told him that we are all so lucky to have him. 
He agreed. 
He is, in fact, a most agreeable child. 

So yes, it was a good day. We did a puzzle and read a short book. We took that walk. There was treasure-hunting in the driveway with a spoon to dig up glass and pottery, and tweezers to pull out the tiniest bits from the hard dirt. We played with the baby. 

We had deep and meaningful conversations. We laughed a lot. Owen drew a tattoo on my arm of a baby and then he added his mama so that the baby was in her tummy. He took a picture of it but it doesn't really show very well, due to the fact that he did the tattoo in orange highlighter pen. 

He did it on the inside of my arm so I can hug it to me any time I want to hug the baby. 
Let's face it- the child is pure sweet. 

The sun is down now and I have the house tidied up, laundry running. I'll eat some more leftovers here in a little while. I feel peaceful and at peace. Both. All of my chickens are put up in the roost and I keep thinking about spring when I'm going to get a few more biddies. Just a few. I can't wait. 
But I will. 

Let's all be warm tonight, let's all be at peace. 
Let us all have sweet dreams. 
Let us have sweethearts or soft cats or dreaming dogs to sleep with, or a book by our side. 
Or a Winnie The Pooh pillow. Whatever brings us comfort. 

Love...Ms. Moon

  2. I hate being spammed with religious crap. I mean really, how inappropriate especially on this blog or maybe he thinks you need it. HA! Or more likely, he just clicks the next blog button over and over and posts it on every one.

    I can't think of a better day than the one you had. My grandgirls are here though I had to work at the store today. Tomorrow though, we hit the shops and resale.

  3. That! Is he putting down Billy Graham? I have not the energy to care but man, Christians like to go after their own. Makes me not want to be a Christian if that is how they treat one another. I thought there was a scripture about knowing they are Christians by their love for one another. Oh, well.

    Those legs, indeed! I thought that it was Owen!

  4. Ellen Abbott and Birdie- Have deleted. What bullshit weirdness.

  5. You changed the header! Not that Owen? Gibson? Aren't adorable.

  6. Ellen Abbott- An old picture of Owen and Elvis.

  7. What beautiful boys and August had grown so much . All that good breast milk. Looking at the boys makes me miss my boys when they were small.

  8. I thought that was August in your header picture and I couldn't believe he was holding his head up and staring at the chicken like that! Alas it wasn't August! This was such a happy, sweet post. All your babies, including Jessie, are precious.

  9. Such a lovely, love-filled day! I can't wait to see how the dynamics of this group of boys will change and re-arrange once "Beauty" is here. She will likely rule you all!

    Oh, that picture of Owen & Elvis up above is one of my all time favorite pics on the whole entire internet! You captured such a magic moment. I miss that rooster.

  10. I love the header, and I love looking at each of these photos. The one of you and the baby and Owen is my favorite. You each look so involved with one another!

  11. What a gorgeous header!! Such an attention grabber...loved seeing all the pics today!

  12. I love the picture of Owen holding August, that sweet overlap of little arms...

  13. Oh, lord - I met some nice people today who've had two lots of hens eaten by minks! I didn't even know we had native minks in Ireland, but apparently we do. And they're bloodthirsty little fuckers.

    It's true that August doesn't know how lucky he is. So many babies get fed every three or four hours and have to wait it out for each feed. And they do not know the joy of the boob! I'm glad, that he doesn't know, and he's a happy little chubbler whose demands are indulged :)

  14. Hiện tại trong các văn phòng làm việc của các công ty văn phòng doanh nghiệp luôn sử dụng cách thiết kế văn phòng theo xu hướng không gian hài hòa giữa thiên nhiên cho nên việc lựa chọn những mẫu ban lam viec van phong sao cho phù hợp với không gian văn phòng làm việc của văn phòng. Cùng chúng tôi điểm qua những xu hướng thiết kế văn phòng theo tiêu chuẩn phong thủy:
    1.Không gian mở và mang tính tương tác Những không gian được thiết kế cho cá nhân đã được thay bằng những không gian mở thông thoáng. Các khu vực có thiết kế mở sẽ được bố trí với không gian rộng hơn trong khi đó những không gian nhỏ hẹp sẽ dành cho những công năng phòng cần cho sự bảo mật như phòng họp, phòng lưu trữ dữ liệu,… nên các loại ban van phong hoa phat nên được thiết kế và bài trí sao cho hợp lí không chiếm quá nhiều diện tích của văn phòng làm việc.
    2. Nhờ vào sự phát triển của công nghệ các thiết bị thông minh như điện thoại cảm ứng, máy tính bảng, notebook,… giúp cho công việc của nhân viên không còn bị cố định vào một vị trí. Một thiết kế văn phòng linh động sẽ có những cách bài trí bàn ghế phù hợp để nhân viên có thể làm việc ở bất kì vị trí nào mà họ cảm thấy thuận tiện.
    Trên đây là 2 xu hướng chủ yếu của việc thiết kế văn phòng làm việc cho nên khi lựa chọn nhũng sản phẩm nội thất văn phòng như bàn, tủ ghế văn phòng cần cân nhắc chọn đúng mẫu sản phẩm đúng mục đích nhu cầu sử dụng.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
