i’ll catch if you pitch.

It’s a beautiful rainy day here in Holland and my dutch dancing this morning was canceled, no matter that I was already dressed and walking to find my group.

I have a list of things to be doing right now because both of my kids are sleeping but I can’t quiet my mind and my hands want nothing to do with busy work.

So I’ll just catch up here *smiles*, you don’t mind, do you?

May has been a full month. Full as in fulfilling, full as in robust and full as in overflowing.

I submitted to a magazine and was asked to write, which I did. I’m pretty sure I’ll be in the next issue but I haven’t heard the final yes or no, although maybe I did and I’m trying not to jinx it. It is on my life list to be a published writer for magazines, so … holding my breath.

This is the month when Gleek Retreat is happening and behind the scenes I am BUSY getting things wrapped up (sponsors) and planned (swag bags, details, etc) for the event. I am tired in the best way possible, but I’m also anxious. Ready to see some faces.

Last weekend the hubs and I went to DETROIT! to see some friends and also a Tigers Game, a first for me. It was a wonderful little hiatus.

In one of my recent lists of lovely I linked to this and we tried them … delicious fun, folks. But don’t really eat them. It’s just wonder and awe in bubbles … a snake of bubbles. Perfect post naptime pick me up, to see something floating above you, made from your breath – this beautiful string of little soapy rainbows.

And then giggles. Lots and lots of giggles. Filling the air, filling me up, preparing me for a celebration. The one where he turns two.

She made us a family and he made us complete.

  1. I LOVE that Jessica’s in her nightgown: jumping on the trampoline, swinging and running around barefoot. One of a kind, that one.

  2. Hi Jodi
    I read that you are a Dutch Dancer. I am from Holland Europe and I collect everything that has to do with our national symbol the Wooden Shoe, or as we say Klompen. I heard that some dancers break their shoes now and then. I am looking for photos of that. Do you have such photo(s)?

  3. Hi AnnMarie,

    I’m pretty sure you’ve commented here or on my Flickr site before asking the same question … 🙂 I don’t have any photos of them braking. Hopefully you can find some though.


  4. She’s one of a kind! (also it mimic’s a dress and apparently we don’t own enough for her liking. The girls LOVES to wear the flowing fabric)
