Saturday into Sunday

"I think we need a date night at home," Brian said while watching Costello run around the playground.

With a weekend full of pushes down the slide, piggy backs around the park, and chases through the leaves, I couldn't agree more.

With both kids down, we turned on our backyard twinkle lights and watched the sky transform.  I reached for my sweater as the evening settled in, promises of Autumn with a chill in the air.

"Can I get you some more wine honey, " asked Brian.

Halfway through our bottle, we dragged our chairs down to the yard, huddled around the fire, and warmed our toes.

"Looking good" he said, "perfect for marshmallows."

"Perfect," I agreed.

And with the baby monitor quietly humming underneath our favourite Andrew Bird album we enjoyed each other's company while the fire flickered the night away.

until next time - ABCD

This is in reply to the comment you left me. I wanted to email it but didn't see an email address for you!

Yes, you can comment but try to reference the tweet. Heck, sometimes I will tweet and then not check again for hours and someone will have replied to my tweet from 6 hours before and I will continue the conversation. If someone doesn't like it? They can unfollow me. :) And from the comments, it seems everyone at one time or another feels like an outsider. You need to go ahead and make a connection with a few folks and they can be your "crew" so to speak. Don't give up just yet!
