dusty


It's been so quiet on this blog lately that I can almost see the dust that gathered on things in my little corner of the cyberspace.

Life is like that sometimes, it just takes over. I miss blogging - I miss the thinking process, the always running thread in the part of my brain that's allocated for writing and weaving creative thoughts. Nowadays I'm living more in the immediate present, all of me is required to be with this little boy, and to take care of other rather basic things for myself and boyfriend.

Like I told about in my previous post, there is a lot to explore. He is at such a special age, everything is new, it's spring turning into summer soon and I just want him to experience all of it, as much as our surroundings and this town can offer.



Then there is the milk allergy, which we need to prove, which means a lot of trips to doctors and the hospital. Then the trying to introduce more solid foods, which is a delicate and very messy business, but the more nutritious solids he eats the less we need to think about milk.

While making all that mess, there is also the trying to keep a sane home environment. Which means an all-day-long wet cloth in one hand, or cleaning in the night after his bedtime. When he naps, it's alternating filling the laundry basket with unloading the washed laundry from the machine.

There's a lot of hands-on stuff when he's awake; dancing, bouncing, upside down somersaults, grooving sitting up, trying to avoid banged heads, and the obsession with daddy's hat, headphones, keyboard, pulling on ears and long hair, chewing on phones, silicone covers, books, socks and so on....I wouldn't switch with anyone but it is full on.



I know, I know. This post is full of baby pictures, which I kind of told myself not to do. But that's exactly it: my days and weeks are full of baby at the moment, not much else is on my mind either.

However, there's got to be a few more other kind of posts before May finishes - I received a beautiful letter, I made some sleeping bags from scratch, I ate a really nice vegan choccy mousse, and I also picked up some double scores in the thrifts (a while ago, I have to admit).

So here's a couple of fingers crossed on my free hand that I'll endure to post about them. For now, a sticky high chair and a hot cup of tea is waiting for me in the kitchen! Bon nuit!

  1. I'm always looking forward for your posts and I'm glad to see them in the reader, the baby ones included, of course! He looks so sweet with the dandelion and he has such a funny, puzzled expression in the photo with the avocado :).

  2. Dust on the sewing machine is also nothing new to me... Lets just use feather duster and move on.
    Have a nice finish summer!
