Lots of new flowers in the yard this week, which is happy. I'm especially glad to FINALLY have blossoms on my Lilac. It's a dwarf variety (Miss Kim) and seems to bloom about 2-3 weeks behind the larger varieties. There's nothing like the smell of Lilacs to lift my spirits.
It's been a long few days. Some tense dealings with a few people have left me in a funk. I just hate conflict, so when it squirms its pesky way in to my life I get very anxious and overwhelmed. And just when I thought things were looking up the rain came back and soaked everything in a dreary light. I'm done with rain now. I really need sun, and lots of it or I fear I may mold. Plus the kids are feeling a little lumpy as well, doing lots of sighing and prone to turn on the TV if I don't keep my eye on them. I thought we might hit the theaters for a movie this afternoon but there's just nothing worth seeing out right now. So, now it's close to dinner time and I'm at a loss as to what to cook, which is always a very discouraging feeling. A few overripe bananas are staring at me from the fruit bowl so I'm thinking about Banana Pancakes. Emma isn't a fan of breakfast foods for dinner, but hey – you can't please everyone all the time. right?
