spring.

Posted by sol in images, my sons are smarter than me, prattle

Awakening. Asparagus. Strawberries. Sun. Breeze. Melancholy. Days roll past, fast. Maybe I should write a haiku. Remembering how lucky we are, because we have each other we are never alone. Reminding my children how much I love them and what joy they bring to my life. Smiling. It’s crucial to smile to them. They thrive. Ice cream. Savoring every moment. Trying the best I can, with a little help. Forgiving myself. Forgiving myself. Forgiving. Trying to grasp the elusive sense of life in every detail, in every hug. Letting the thoughts bounce and flow. Going to bed now.

This photo was taken with ShakeItPhoto, a Polaroid app for the iPhone. Cheesy? just slightly.

my cool factor just skyrocketed.

Posted by sol in I'm not proud

broken laptop, bad internet, no husband, two children.. these things had been keeping me from blogging lately, but I’m back in full swing, or at least, that is my intention.

please let me show off the newest addition to my collection of gadgets:

My dear husband gave in to my insistence out of guilt* for going to Canada for 9 days without us. And the only thing I can say is that it is awesome and I will never let one more call unanswered.

* He was reportedly tired of me never answering on my mobile.

Anyway, I keep thinking, as I flicker through the App store, at how far us cave people have come. Not bad.

exactly the same, but not quite.

Posted by sol in cuisine or at least food on the plate

Let me tell you first of all of my love for quinoa: well, let David tell you:

Anyway, I cooked this chicken the other day, with some grilling rub I found in my overpopulated spice cupboard, charred zucchini and carrots and quinoa with parsley and lime. And Damiano and Santiago had it, too.

Damiano wasn’t sure about the quinoa and I started eating it off his plate and like magic, he told me to stop eating HIS quinoa and he ate it all. Santiago, well.. I’m not sure if he ate anything at all, he just made a big mess.

(Baby-led weaning rocks!)

not April fool’s

Posted by sol in images, life

the day Michele left for Canada, we got a LOT of this:

Until it all looked like this:

Very nice, you say.

Being trapped in the house with two little rowdy boys and a cold is not so nice. But yeah, I liked the swirling whirling snowstorm, too.
