The Niceness of Noise

Three small children have come to visit me today. There are blocks and toys scattered across the floor once again. There have been plenty of laughs, a few tears, and one little girl yelling, "Stop trying to kill  me!" A little sister drama... (She just asked one of her brothers, "Do you even know what I'm sayin'? Are you deaf or sumpthin?")

The kittens have been snuggled and mauled, cookies have been cut and baked, and the house is a general disaster. There is something strangely comforting about the disarray and little voices in the room.

I didn't sleep much last night, lots of tossing and turning. I'd probably take a long nap on this dark afternoon if not for the commotion about me. Although, truthfully, I don't feel very relaxed and would likely not sleep more than a few minutes. *sigh* Maybe I should go mix up some orange frosting for those pumpkin face cookies.


  1. I love the picture of Aubrey talking to and snuggling a kitten. She sure does love them, doesn't she? :). Glad to hear you enjoyed some time with the grands.

    1. They all love the kittens and find them hilariously entertaining. I just need to keep an eye out to make sure the kittens are having fun too.
