Lost Bottle

Tuesday, February 07, 2006

Today was such a beautiful & sunny day! Blue skies--no jacket--kind of day. Samuel and I went over to the east side and went for a walk in the Hawthorne/Belmont neighborhood. Lots of crocuses, tulips, and daffodils coming up from the ground. We stopped by Zupan's to do some shopping on our walk, and it was as we were leaving the store that I realized that Samuel had tossed his bottle out of the stroller somewhere along the way. I didn't want to recircle the store, so decided to backtrack the way we came and hope he had tossed it outside rather than inside the store. Even if a bottle is easily replaceable, the thought of something of Samuel's laying all alone on a sidewalk somewhere made me feel sad, so I hoped that I would find it. Just as we were nearing the car, there lay the bottle forlornly smack-dab in the middle of the sidewalk. For some reason, that made me feel happy to find his bottle, even though I was already in good spirits from the sunny walk and the jasmine plant I picked up at Zupan's.

Tonight was my second time at the new book club I joined. We made Caribbean food because of the setting of the novel, In the Time of Butterflies. Excellent book, by the way. The food was all delicious. I made coconut rice & organic citrus chicken--both Caribbean dishes. Everything was great--thanks to Landon for watching Samuel!
