Today in the van, Ruby was going on and on about how much she loved the dandelion that she picked on her way out of church. She loved that it was yellow. She loved that it smelled, "SO, SO good, Mum!!!! Just like honey." Nothing like a kid to make you slow down and appreciate the little stuff, right.
So at the Farmer's Market, I put aside how warm it was getting, how the boys needed a good nap, and how I needed one too. And I tried to slow down and appreciate the little stuff.
Huge bouquets of flowers for $5.
My boy meandering around with his water bottle through all the stalls.
Fresh bread to bring to our neighbour's for dinner. Cheesy bread that we inhaled last week with globs of butter and plan to do the same tonight.
Discovering little people sized pumpkins.
Fresh veggies and fruit. My kids were crazy about the beets this past week. Begging for beets.
Making sweet faces at my little boy and getting funny reactions.
And, finally, eating mini donuts. We all decided that we NEEDED them!
The big sister doled them out and the little brothers snarfed them down.
