The week of November 4

This week I took time to notice and enjoy a few small moments.  They seemed insignificant at the time, but I know that they are treasures. 
One night Tom worked late and the rest of us were a little 'off'.  To fend off the evening crabbies we decided we needed to create.  Noah thought we should "finger paint like when we were little" and I loved that idea.  We wondered what would happen if we finger painted with our special water color paints.  We added in some drawings with oil pastels.  We were creative and we made a mess and we weren't crabby any more. 
Noah and I enjoyed some quiet reading time together one evening while the girls and Tom were at basketball practice.
We picked up our first CSA share this week.  The first night we roasted a big batch of the veggies and the next night I made it in to a wonderful soup.  Noah loves adding the oil and salt to the vegetables before roasting. 
Beautiful moments.
