yeah, so it's winter now...
Last evening, the little girls started in on how they loved summer, and couldn't wait for it to arrive. We counted, there are 121 days until the first of June.
But we can't wish our lives away, I told them. Let's be thankful for the coziness. They moved the coffee table out of the way, and spread the mats they got for Christmas across the room, and put the two by four they use for a balance beam on them. They said they are thankful for a big living room. And for the space heater. And for hot tea.
Right now, they are eating bowls of Cheerios at the coffee table with a candle lit.
Today, we are going to do some school, then go out and about in the snow. It is STILL snowing here. The band of snow sets up across Lake Ontario...and gets comfy. We shoveled that driveway so many times yesterday.
Anyway, we didn't pay that insurance bill yesterday because I called the office, and they had left! I was glad to stay home. But today it must be paid, and we are running out of cat food, and stuff for lunches. Paul is leaving early tomorrow morning for Washington state/Oregon, and then France, so he needs a few things that I'm picking up for him.
