Shivers / nephew

Untitled
I have had a shivery buzzing feeling since yesterday, couldn't quiet my still faintly jetlagged brain enough for sleep — or couldn't make myself want to make it quiet badly enough — until about six in the morning, but this evening after dinner it vanished and I was left with a sudden emptiness, the tranquil kind.

I met my nephew today for the first time. He is five weeks old. (How can that be a sentence? A human who is five weeks old? It boggles the mind.)

"Holy Never, have mercy on us."

It's comforting to be tired with the parents of a newborn, because you know you are not alone and yet they still have it so much worse than you.

I'm making a crafty little photocopied book of Australian stuff, of some of the things I wrote there as well as some other bits and pieces. Let ya know when it's finished.

A five week old human... a human that wasn't and is... and is even related to you. It's just... funny to think about. ^__^

Shaun Elyse - Yes...it is quite mysterious.

sui - :) Thank you, cara. I love you too.

Erin - I don't know why I didn't send the link to you when you mentioned you liked that quote in my "about." But yes, I love it a lot, all of her "notebooks" (there's more of hers on that same site) and I'm glad you do too. And thank you for your encouragement earlier this fall re: writing project. <3

I have not been reading your blog lately. You have a nephew now!? That IS amazing. And I have that exact same nativity set. Who knew?

Camilla - I do, and even more amazingly, he's turned out to be a ginger! Huzzah!!!
