day filters

yesterday:  i remembered that there was a bag of blood oranges somewhere in the depths of our refrigerator.  the first type of orange juice i remember drinking is blood orange juice.  when we lived in italy i remember going on vacation and serving myself the red juice from a big whirling tank.  the italians make even orange juice something special.

today:  i listened to myself when i spoke to my boys (particularly when they were up to no good) and realized i really want to learn that balance between gentleness, firmness, kindness, and guidance.  i read somewhere that someone thought they sounded like a sunday school teacher when they brought God/scripture into the discussion with their kids.  amen to that.  sometimes it just feels so unnatural and awkward.  i’m working on it.  

tomorrow:  wednesday marks one month until we move.  i think this reality is hitting us more and more each day, and omar and i are realizing more and more how much we are going to miss this beautiful, messy, loud, great city.

  1. At least you are getting your list crossed off, one item at a time. You should be able to do almost all of them before your month is up. (I’m not sure how many books you have checked out. :))

    In the meantime, take lots of pictures and drink in all the memories that you can.

  2. no job news, yet. we like to live on the edge 😉

    we fly up to atlanta in a couple of weeks for more job interviews and such. i’ll keep you posted!
