i overslept by thirty minutes this morning. i woke up frantic to get gage out of bed and ready for school. the whole frantic feeling slipped away quickly though as i opened the windows and saw what seemed a scene from the end of days. thick white fog blocking the view of our fence line. barely peeking through was the boys' swing set and trampoline and little blurs of yellowing grass. on the porch our usually happy morning pooch was still snuggled in cozy with her blanket.
that set the mood for the day. gage dressed and ate quickly and we dropped him off at school with plenty of time to spare. i finished packaging my last crochet orders and from there the three-year-old and i have really kept it simple today. he's still sporting his pajamas. i'm sporting an over-sized house dress and messy bun and we just pulled a batch of fresh pumpkin chocolate chip cookies from the oven. they smell divine!
i've been feeling a little less than chipper over the last few days. my body feels full and swollen and ready. i can honestly say that my face has never been so full and my feet never so unrecognizable. my wedding ring is hesitant to even twist on my plump finger. it hasn't come off in months. so even though the fog is gone, the air is still and the sun is shining, i am going to just go ahead and pretend that things haven't changed since this morning. i'm going to ride this foggy day out for all it's worth.
so happy fog filled monday to you!
p.s. have i told you? only two weeks to go!
