A Lemonade Day.

Little Sam is having a tough week. Yesterday morning, Katie and I agreed he should go to day care today (instead of spending the day with me) ... hoping one more day there will help get his transition onto more solid ground. Of course I'd cleared my calendar weeks ago and all that empty space would be a shame to waste!

Yesterday afternoon I made a few plans - found a new knitting project, planned a walk with Lauren (which is really a double lemonade thing - she was supposed to have knee surgery yesterday but it's been rescheduled for next week), and made sure I had all the episodes of Victoria recorded.

Turns out the knitting and the walk, along with a third bloom on that amaryllis

and a very happy mail day

were all I needed. By the time I finished listening to Lillian Boxfish (loved it!) Marc was home. Just in time to help me try on the sweater.

Yep, still needs a few more rows.

Thanks to last week's trial run, I do have a bit of Sam to share with y'all. Hopefully next week I'll have a lot more!

...and now it's time for something a little stronger (and likely a little redder) than lemonade... cheers to (almost) Friday!

Oh my Sam looks so much like Katie! Sounds like some wonderful things to make the week more sunny.

Ah, looks like a great day despite a change of plans. The book sounds good (Lillian). Looking forward to next Thursday with Sam!

We are easing into baby transitions here too. I am blown away by how much I have forgotten about having and infant around! Enjoy your not-lemonade evening.

That is quite a few good things in one day! Here's hoping that Sam's adjustment gets a little easier, Lauren's knee surgery goes well, and you have a weekend with many more good things!

I hope Sam is adjusting better, poor little guy. And poor Katie, too. It's SO hard in the beginning. Boy, doesn't he look like Charlie!

He really DOES look like Charlie! Poor Sam. Poor Katie. (It will get better!) Good use of your lemonade-day! XO

Your day sounds lovely and full of good things. Sam is so cute. Change is hard and it must be as tough for Katie to leave him as it is for him to adjust. Soon Sam will be excited about his days with you!
