The Morning After

Seven +1
Being such a conscientious mom, I totally neglected to take a picture of Eldest with his cake.
I think I may blame it on the hoopla surrounding the fact that I only had 6 candles (that arranged themselves nicely into the number 7) and that I was tired after all that cleaning and PT. Either way, I didn't take a pic. But here he is. Clearly worn after a day of celebration. Inspired by Rani, I wound up some of the fingering weight superwash wool that I dyed with Laurie (this is the one that I was hoping would stay sparkley) and I am going to swatch some lace with it.
I need to.

This is what is stealing my time, though.
I thought it appropriate that the heart appeared when I jammed the stitches down.
Because this is my declaration of love.
And oh, how exciting love is. I just hope I can maintain the enthusiasm and do the hard work that real love is.
His birthday gets closer every day.

Ah yes, we veterans know that real love is cleaning the toilet. Every day. Forever. One of the best insights I've ever seen into real love was a line from the Maroon 5 song "She Will Be Loved" -- "It's not rainbows and butterflies, but compromise that moves us along." (And I'm as surprised as anyone at the source.)
