this weekend passed in the blink of an eye. it was spent mostly doing some much needed spring cleaning. what boggles the brain is that i only took care of one closet in one room. there is still so much to do.
saturday night we had a brief respite from the chores of home by attending a play. the miracle worker was put on by our school's 8th grade class. it was an excellent performance of an intense story.
the one advantage of not having a performance space in your school (for the time being) is that the 8th grade play takes place in charlottesville's live arts theater. here is my view from a bench where i nursed tristan before ducking into the play (tristan and dan enjoyed the spring evening on the outdoor mall).
i definitely don't get out enough!
but that changes a little this week when i get to go see joanna newsom at the jefferson theater!
i have been listening to her new album, albeit slowly, and today am hooked on this song, which gives me the goosebumps. this isn't a video really, but the lyrics show up!
i've been thinking a lot about this time last year, the first weekend of spring. we had a lovely brunch at hawker and blossom's house in crozet. i was hugely pregnant, but thought i had at least another month ahead of me. i wrote a post about the weekend the day before my water broke five weeks early and tristan changed our lives forever. tashi, dan and i have had an incredible year with him! each day he makes our hearts explode with love.
