Fools in the kitchen

Last night was great. Bob cooked a wonderful dinner–lamb and wild rice. A wonderful end to the end of a long week. It had seemed long to everyone. The week before we had all been on vacation, laughing and enjoying life. This week we had to work. And for me, it was a five day week. Liz had gone back to school in Albuquerque, Kat had a full week including band practice and a performance on wednesday night. Maggie continued her life of leisure working hard at the grad school applications (even in leisure that woman does not know how to relax). Bob did the usual great job of taking care of everyone. I like having him take care of me; he does a wonderful job including preparing great meals. And last night was one of them.

But the kids were feeling lively. Perhaps hunger since Bob made them wait for me. And I did not get home from work until after 7:00 pm. Perhaps it was the rain, everyone in southern California goes crazy when it rains. Perhaps it was general relief at being off work. Or perhaps it was the after effects from a full moon. Whatever. The kids were rough housing in the kitchen while waiting for dinner. And as part of that rough housing, we got treated to a great view of Kat. I can prove it, there is photographic evidence. What do you think about this picture?

Welcome to my life. My life as a mom is changing as the kids grow up, leave home, and build their own lives. This gives me a chance to rebuild myself as an artist, develop a spiritual path, and most fun of all, start going out on dates with my husband. Come here the stories about the small things in life that can make one very happy. Dogs running on a beach, great breakfast dates, kids and their adventures, and my own adventures in this wacky life. I'll share some of my progress in learning art while juggling a full time job as an engineer. And best of all, it's a chance for me to practice writing stories while keeping in touch with my kids. I look forward to hearing from you. Comments, thoughts, and invitations to meet for coffee are all welcomed. Enjoy the stories.

  1. It’s so wonderful to see your grown up kids being so playful with each other! I bet it just made your house come alive with joy! You are truly blessed. Hope Kat didn’t land on her head. Looks like she’s just inches away from doing that. So glad you had a wonderful evening. You’re a lucky lady, Robine!
