I was in the middle of writing a post about our peaceful-slow mornings when Paige came over to surprise me with a bandaid (our favorite play-thing) and splash! Knocked my steaming hot (second) cup of coffee with heavy cream all over.
So much for that.
No but really. I love being able to dwaddle in bed, and most mornings my children are up for a good AM snuggle sesh too. Wyatt climbs over us as we tickle and talk about our day -- I'm willing to drag this out as long as possible and I'm fairly sure Paige would be too but Wyatt wants to go go go! (and the animals, 6 of them sometimes waiting to go outside..) Breakfast is casual and afterwards there's a two hour period in which anything goes! Free play galore; this morning Paige pretended that the dogs were horses and groomed them/attempted to ride them using her sheepskin rug as a saddle. Wyatt has been doctoring himself with bandaids Phil bought, and I'm here drinking my (third) cup of coffee, checking up on emails, and working a bit. It's perfect.
I'm starting to get that tingle in my body when I think about spring coming. Seed catalogs are excellent when the days start to feel too cold and too gray. I also (gulp) joined a gym. A friend told me about it and I got excited thinking about an indoor beach entrance pool and organic cafe..a place to spend the last few gray days of winter and early spring! Swimming and enjoying a smoothie after! We are going this week for the first time and I'm super pumped..I'm also thinking about joining a yoga class.
I've never done yoga
Real yoga, not the kind where you pretend to be a tiger on the floor in the living room for your kids
So to add to our rhythm (weekly) will be a day we go swimming inside! What a treat!
Some spring thinkin
-the children will have their own raised bed this year, I asked Paige what she wanted to grow in it and she screetched "carrots! flowers!" pumpkins!" Wyatt just wants pumpkins (big ones, round ones, small ones, teeny ones, and of course happy pumpkins..)
-Another goat? A piglet to raise and eventually eat? Def more bunnies, but what else?
-Raw milk is back and we worked out the glitches with our deliveries so each week I can look forward to gallons of creamy milk, cream and butter...they also have meats and bee pollen too.
-Speaking of bees, we will be getting some! Do I really need a beekeeping class or will 398 books suffice? Bee-keepers speak up!
