kate5kiwis: sunshine. storms. sweetness.


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

sunshine. storms. sweetness.

"I believe the nicest and sweetest days
are not those on which anything splendid
or wonderful or exciting happens
but just those that bring simple little pleasures,
following one another softly,
like pearls slipping off a string."
L. M. Montgomery (Anne of Avonlea)

our day has been just like that.
sunshine and storms.

a bit o' school stuff in the morning, and lunch at one of our favourite places.. kids playing rummy-o and the piano, and me reading julie's stash of parenting mags.
a little inspiration and voila: D17's and my spianata creation for dinner: it's kinda like a rolled up pizza (of course we made *two*).. we stuffed ours with smoked chicken, our homegrown organic silverbeet, S9's pesto and tomatoes-and-olives, cheese....
it was pronounced "G-O-O-D" by M5.
and now everyone's tummy is happy and we're chilling to the chilis.
mamma is enjoying a glass of cabernet merlot and waiting for papa to come home soon..
