Today was such an amazingly, incredibly beautiful day. After having had snow off and on Sunday and Tuesday, the sunshine, blue skies, and 60° weather was much welcomed. Ellie could play outside without being so bundled up that she had to waddle to get anywhere! She was able to ride around on her tricycle, attempt to drive her little tractor, and play in her playhouse to her heart’s content. I know she loved it, and for me, spending time outside was good for my soul…and sanity. I took a long walk around the lake, and enjoyed the beauty of all the emerging green, and the family of ducks swimming around without a care in the world.
I’ve gotten out of the habit of carrying my camera around, so I don’t have any photos of the flowers that are starting to brighten up the dullness of the thawing winter ground. I’ll have to attempt that tomorrow!
With Spring in the air, I was of course inspired to start prepping for the upcoming Easter Egg Decorating party. Ellie is beyond excited about it, and the invitations are finally ready to go out. She had such a great time working on them, and we’re excited to have friends over!
I haven’t quite figured out how I’m going to deliver many of them – since mailing them doesnt’ seem very practical…I’ll figure it out, though I’m sure. Ellie was insistent on my taking a photo of her actually assembling the invitations – she said we needed to take pictures of “how to do it.”
Decorating the house is up next!
WELCOME SPRING (even if it’s supposed to rain for the next 10 days….)
