the smell of your skin

Posted: February 3, 2010 in life

so, today, i spent my morning entertaining a small boy. he told me stories (i’m not sure what they were about. much like the homeless man i met on monday night at the nightshelter who wanted me to answer a question… though i’m still not entirely sure what that question was…) and then he cried and needed rocked to sleep, and then he ate a yoghurt (ah, petite filous!) and then, i handed him back to his mum, who he was overjoyed to see.

i’m feeling a little bit restless. we joined the library today, and i’m kinda hoping not to be here when the three week lending period on the books i took out is up. i’m finding it hard that there’s nothing i can do at the moment to change the situation. and so, i’m trying to keep learning and remembering that this is why we need grace. eeeshk.

which is why i’ve googled ‘cheap flights to phl’ a couple times recently… BA are having a sale at the moment (ends feb 9th… maybe i’ll hear about my visa before that and i can book cheap flights?!)

and my computer has pretty much died… it’s been 4 1/2 years, so it’s had a good run, but it means no spotify at the moment, and that makes me sad.

really, i have nothing to say right now, i just wanted to put something out there… (oh and i’m doing the kids talk at church sunday, about transformed lives… any ideas?)

    the title of this post, clearly, is taken from all-time favourite summer song. good choice. you can’t beat some sister hazel.

  2. emma says:

    hmm… and now i’m wondering if that lyric is actually ‘the smell of june’ and your title is from another song…

    i wish i could say it was sister hazel, or in fact that i’d had a lyric in mind when i wrote that, though it is in the classic ‘amazed’ by Lonestar… i was actually just obliquely referencing the smell of baby skin, especially as i had a baby in my arms most of this morning… but i’m glad you felt like naming the song… i always wonder if anyone recognises the songs… :)

    I was wondering why the man needed rocked to sleep before eating a petit filous and then when you handed him back to his Mum I realised you were back tot he little boy. You should remember that short sentences are good, rather than long complex sentences like I was reading to you the other night…

  5. Suzi's Mum (Reenie) says:

    As the eyes of slaves look to the hand of their master,
    as the eyes of a maid look to the hand of her mistress,
    so our eyes look to the LORD our God, till he shows us mercy
    Psalm 123 v 2

    Let me know if you’re thinking of getting a new computer. I put in a lot of research as of late.

    so, i managed to rebuild (i say i, really, i ran the first disk and then passed it on to my lovely father, since i’m a technical ignoramus..) my computer and it’s working… for now. but you will be the first person i call when it breaks and i need a new one, michael. :)
