Today I had a ton of stuff to do. But, I was TIRED. The fatigue has been building all week, as Babyman continues to struggle with teething and neither of us is sleeping well at night. Add to that the fact that I never get a nap, and well I have been dragging. But this afternoon, I had managed to get a couple things done at least. My bedroom was so pleasant, with the windows open and sunny shadows dancing on the wall, sparkling with movement whenever the cool breeze came through the screen. The older boys were tucked in their beds, and babyman was nursing sleepily next to me.
I took a nap.
A long, luxurious nap in the lazy sunny afternoon. It was really quite heavenly. And evernow, I feel so much better for it. I am still tired, but I am functioning, and my temper's not as short-fused. Much, much better.

Littleman came up with another original recipe, and this one I actually tried. It was quite good! Littleman's Peanut Butter and Apple Sandwiches
Spread peanut butter on two slices of bread. Slice a fresh apple thinly, and layer slices over the peanut butter on one of the pieces of bread. Put other piece of bread on top (peanut butter side in, of course) and cut sandwich in half. Eat!
I like to eat apple slices with peanut butter, and of course peanut butter sandwiches are a staple around here, so when Littleman suggested a "peanut butter and apple sandwich", I thought "Why not?" It's not bad at all- the fresh apple has a nice crispness to offset the soft bread and peanut butter, and all the flavors go well together. Good idea, Littleman!
Unless otherwise specified, all the photographs on this site were taken by me with my trusty little Nikon Coolpix 4200 point-and-shoot. The lens is getting rickety and the battery door is held on with a rubber band, but it's still working. If I manage to do any editing at all, it's very basic- I might crop or adjust the exposure a little, for instance. If you wish to reproduce any of my photos in any way, please just be courteous and ask my permission first. I'd be flattered. Thank you.
