you know it.
the day began with blue skies for my eyes and heart.
though the weatherman promised clouds and wind at any minute, it didn't matter to me. I was determined to get every last dropful of it into my being.
when i went outside (first thing this morning, of course), i found green, green grass
and an unfrozen pond. in the morning! my pond wasn't frozen!
Maddie noticed something spectacular was happening, too,
and after getting her sunglasses and a giant hat, she headed for the pot of bubbles.
and then to the trampoline for a zoo create.
(complete with sidewalks, pens, and a parking lot.)
"Why don't you go wash that, and then go see what green things you can find?"
"Will you wash it for me?"
"Why can't you wash it?"
"Because I don't want to be stuck inside! I want to be out here in the sunshine!!"
all the windows were open by eleven o'clock.
awake; en plein air
lunch; en plein air
home; en plein air
even a few minutes of computer play, as windows and doors are wide, wide open...
"Can I help?"
four hours, today...
and to clean sheets
and a warm dinner.
jump on the tramp
(with surprising energy and vigor--must be that springtime air...)
and computer play.
