These two weeks... lots of work, cooking, and getting ready for school. I had little time for daily photos, but still managed to do it! Overall, this is not my favourite bunch of photos as I know I can do better, but they captured life at this time (at least some of it) and that's my main goal.
My desk at work with everything I need close at hand. My Evoluent vertical mouse directly in front of my arm (and not over to the right) keeps tendonitis away. To do this, I have to use a mini keyboard which I don't love, but accept.
Sundays have become cooking days at our house. We cooked seven things from scratch today - four for the upcoming week and three for supper. This is a stew I love, before adding the stock (Bison & Sweet Potato Stew - without beef heart and with a couple large carrots added). The smell is divine!
I'm embarrassed to say these flowers - my favourite - were completely obscured until I spent two hours pulling weeds today. Their leaves are littered with weed seeds. So glad to see these! I thought we had lost all of our echinacea over the winter. There are several more volunteers, too. I think they'll bloom next year.

To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children;
to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of
to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others;
to leave the world a little better;
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition;
to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.
This is the meaning of success.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
