Eric and I had a lovely dinner. We slowed down, ate and talked. We have no shortage of topics, just as it has always been. We reflected on how much has changed in this past year, how thankful we are, we talked about art, film, etc. Generally we just took our sweet time.
We picked up Cordelia. She was fast asleep in my mother's arms. Apparently my mother started to sing to her and didn't make it halfway through one verse before Cordelia was completely passed out. We carefully loaded the sleeping little girl into her car seat where she promptly awoke.
When we got home she decided that it was no longer bed time. She rolled on the ground, played, ran for the dog water and carried her coasters around the house. The animals were hanging out lounging with us, save Ophelia who was probably brooding under the bed, still angry that I cut her hair.
I looked at Eric and he said, "This is our life."
I smiled and said, " I know, I love it."
He laughed as Cordelia bounced between the two of us giving kisses (kisses= a delightful open mouthed application of drool) and said, "Me too."
What's your life like?
