Spontaneity

It was maybe a little like Wednesday Spaghetti, writ small and on Monday. Alejna was visiting relatives not too far from my house, and came over at almost the spur of the moment, for pasta and brownies on Monday night.

After dinner, the happy dressed-up children (one of mine, two of hers) were a whirling heap of color and tulle:

3 kids x 4

In an oasis of calm on the other side of the room, Alejna was trying to take their picture:



Chaos, spontaneity, friends. And a good reason to have homemade tomato sauce in jars in the cellar.

I think it's time for another potluck. You'll all come, right?

I would love to come for a potluck! (What, you mean show up at your house *with* food? And not just demanding that you feed me and my two small children?)

So loving this!
