Cohen loves his peaches these days, and I just love these two photos so much. He bumped his forehead on some rocks when he was running in our rock pit/backyard area. He is always bumping his forehead, and sometimes I am tempted to tell him he is not allowed to run anymore. But running is pretty much his favorite thing to do. Luckily we have cool bandaids.
So we had friends for supper on the weekend, and they texted to say they were bringing the wine, which is so awesome. We went to open it when they arrived, and no corkscrew. I know we used to own one, but now we don't. The guys jumped in the car and got a corkscrew, but then when we opened the wine, well, we don't have any wine glasses. So we drank the wine from teacups, and it was totally cool. But our friends were shocked that we don't have these basic things, and wanted to bring us some of their extra stuff the next day.
The thing is, I don't really want those things in our house. I like drinking wine with some soda and fruit in it in a big glass, first of all. But also, I just don't want our cupboards jammed with stuff we use only a few times a year. Other things we don't have that some people might find weird: headboards, bed frames (our mattress is just directly on the floor), measuring cups (teacups tend to be about a cup), extra sets of sheets (just what is on our bed), glasses (we exclusively use random jars), a cake stand, a salad spinner, a soup ladle, and the list could probably go on and on.
Anyway, tomorrow we are off to a wedding in Halifax this weekend! We have been taking lots of little trips over the past month or two, and I am loving it. Can't wait for the reunion.
