Well, it's official.
I've totally and completely given myself permission to think Spring!.
I have no excuse or justification, other than Mama Nature has winked and nodded and slid us enough pleasant surprises to not only make me blow her a kiss, but I've now formally curtsied, and told her that I accept.
Add to that the fact that we celebrate our Spring holiday on March 20th - which is just one month away, I'm sure I don't have to tell you - and sigh.... the daydreams begin.
So I worked on Washi eggs, today.
Admittedly, the first four are quite... raw and inelegant.... only the last two I've made are really somewhat presentable. Still, playing with pinks and yellows and spring greens is quite a pleasant pastime, regardless.
Maddie has begun hers, as well.
We sat down with a taaaaall stack of library books today (as we need to return them) - there were number and math books, picture books, ScoobyDoo books, and animal books.
The next little while was spent as each of us saw fit,
and then we came together again for a game we made up, which we are calling Guess What?
It's a sculpting, acting, drawing game that is similar to Cadoo, but that is non-competitive, and suits our family a little better, as we've made it up to suit our needs. I'm actually quite pleased with the thoughtful and creative aspects of it...
Trevy and I sat with Math Blaster for about an hour
and other than these slow and meandering activities,
we've had lots of videos
The babies are down and out today (the first colds in I don't know how long -all fall/winter year?- Trev held out 'til now - though still 'tis only a nighttime cough) so they've been 'tucked into' with lots of Mama's remedies and juice, so our pace was slow so as not to require much exertion.
and happy as we can be with sore throats and lungs that are too tender for much of the usual running and jumping.
Because what life offers us is-
much more than Good Enough.
