new home

Wednesday, September 14, 2005

We had everyone from our softball team over for an end-of-season bbq last night -- we had too much food and it was a tad dark. We'll have to get more lights in the back yard. It seems depressing that it will be getting darker by the minute as we get closer to the winter months. I'm excited to get some fall and winter clothes. I love the idea of being wrapped up in a wool sweater like a soft blanket.

Things left to do in the house:
  • choose colours and paint

  • change the knobs on the kitchen cupboards

  • organize my desk

  • unpack the books

  • organize the spare bedroom

When I write all these things down they seem quite trivial and unimportant especially when you think of what people are going through in other parts of the world. Yesterday was my foster child's birthday -- Elinkaela. She lives in Tanzania and she is now 7 years old. I wish I could call her to wish her a wonderful day... or be with her to bring her food and something fun to play with. Instead I'll sit and look at her picture and think of what she is doing.
