Che le Piccole Cose

Monday, August 18, 2008
I take a minute to stop the car after dropping Sam off at summer camp and read a book for thirty minutes while Juniper sleeps soundly in her carseat. The rain pounds on the windshield and water streams down the street in little rivers. I feel a bit under the weather, so I go home and Juniper falls back to sleep in Samuel's bed. I register Sam for swimming and soccer and fold laundry while listening to the rain. Juniper wakes up, and I play with her on the floor until it is time to pick up Sam from camp. He is happy to see us and runs up and gives us a big hug. We go home and eat lunch, then I lay down with Juniper in Sam's bed until she falls sound asleep again for her afternoon nap. I wonder how long she will sleep. She sleeps for nearly five hours. Landon is home. I go upstairs and read on the bed. It sounds like the house is empty, but I know Sam and Landon are somewhere downstairs. Juniper wakes up and I carry her down the stairs. The first thing I see is a beautiful plate of bruschette on the dining table, all for me. Landon and Sam have already eaten. I sit alone and eat bruschette, thinking to myself that I haven't tasted anything so good in a very long time. While these thoughts run through my head, Landon brings me a piece of blackberry pie, which he made yesterday after he and Sam picked five cups of fresh blackberries from a secret patch near our house. It is so good. Landon plays with Sam and Juni in the living room. I read in bed about Italy and wonder if Elizabeth Gilbert ever had bruschette as good as the bruschette Landon made tonight. I doubt it. I look out the window. The sky is dark, but it's not raining anymore.
