Our weather has been very strange indeed. We have had very mild temperatures but the sun has been hidden behind the clouds and rain. Unusual to think it's cold and dreary only to go outdoors and find it's warm and dreary.
The girls do not like the rain and stay out only the necessary time to attend to body functions. Fortunately we do have two play areas indoors. We have a large den with heavy furniture as well as a screened porch we use when the weather is this mild. So they do romp and play.
Mostly, however, they snooze. And more often than not in the same bed. And more often than not with Ellie serving as Lucy's pillow.
Please don't ask me to get up.
I'm really bored and tired of this rain.
I'll just look the other way.
Pro football and college basketball rule our house right now. The Packers are still in the playoffs, and the TarHeels are really struggling. (To be expected when 80% of your shot-makers went pro, but disheartening nonetheless.) Thank goodness for books and downstreaming. Although I wouldn't miss a Packer game for anything.
Many are getting the mid-winter doldrums and so our quote today comes from Goethe:
Sometimes our fate resembles fruit trees in winter. Who would think that those branches would turn green again and blossom? But we hope it; we know it.
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND, EVERY ONE OF YOU!!!
