We had another full day today. January and February are always the months where I take it easy, not taking on too much, slowing down, and just settling into home and sinking in to the small moments of our day which are so very ordinary, but so very special. These next two months are really going to be crazy. With house renovations officially in full swing (final kitchen color here), walls being knocked down, carpets and linoleum being ripped up, and finding myself in a crazy I really need to be out thrifting mood means that my normal down months will be packed tight. And that's okay! There's still time to enjoy the small moments, and between yesterday and today there have been so many!
Sunny days just warm enough to hang clothes on the line. Nothing makes me happier than hanging clothes on the line, especially when the colors just pop against the snow!
Morning baths in the sink. Gotta love it! I used to do this all the time as a kid. Add a tea set to the mix and you have entertainment for over an hour.
Trips to the yarn store. The Noro was chosen for that sweater vest I keep talking about, and the little one picked out the purple Peace Fleece for a sweater coat to match Purple Violet's. Too cute! I can't wait to get started.
And the little one has discovered a new passion. She has been loving the violin ever since we took her to a little string concert a couple of months ago. She turned her Ukulele and magic wand into a violin and bow today. She played the "violin" for hours, imitating perfectly the other musicians she saw playing. She even brought it in the car and into the co-op, performing for cans of tuna and the cheese case, humming a little tune as her bow gently passed over the strings. Too cute for words. It made me so happy to see her so passionate about something. She seemed in her element..like she had done this so many times before. I can't wait to see where this takes her!
I hope you all have a happy weekend! We're off on an adventure tomorrow. See you soon!
