That's what my thermometer said this morning.
Which would explain the flannel sheets,
on my bed.
I think I go into hibernation every night.
But hurray for sunny weather and getting out for walks
with my walking buddy!
I know the sunshine - all that glorious light -
brightens my mood.
But you know why else I'm happy?
|Snow in the hills...|
I already sold one of the quilts!
It's on its way to Maine,
to my bloggy friend Rebecca,
who has an ADORABLE little grand-daughter.
|Is it a squirrel's nest?|
Looks like one, but so low to the ground?
Also, other than getting a little bit behind on our schoolwork
due to an unexpected visit yesterday,
(neighbor boy, also homeschooled, locked himself out of his house
- did I mention it was eight degrees this morning? -
while his mom was out shopping for his birthday,
and spent four hours with us),
the week is going pretty well.
(Diagram THAT sentence, I dare you.)
|Ice heave - water crystals pushing up through the dirt.|
We made it to choir practice, Wyatt got promoted at CAP on Tuesday,
we read a chapter of our latest book together,
(That Hideous Strength, the third of the C.S.Lewis Space Trilogy)...
|Gunnar spotted a loon on the partially-frozen pond.|
... the boys are looking forward to visiting Whidbey NAS tomorrow,
(we have a friend who is a P-3 Orion pilot and wants to show them all around!),
|Full of water again.|
... we're looking forward to our annual LOTR marathon this weekend.
|Lots of team spirit around the neighborhood!|
And if I get my act together
maybe I could sew up another quilt tomorrow
and be able to finish it (hand binding) while watching the movies.
|Amazing ice crystals in a damp spot of the lawn.|
The boys are just happy that I still have a couple little bags
of Cadbury Eggs (from last Easter)
locked up in reserve, because apparently
one must have Cadbury eggs with LOTR
at least in my family.
And cheesy snack mix.
And maybe Lembas bread, if I can find a recipe that sounds appealing.
(Chia seeds? Surely you jest.)
