Today the temperature crept to nearly 40 degrees F, and it
was wonderful. The snow started melting (which means we now have 5’11” drifts
instead of 6’ drifts), you didn’t need gloves and a hat to go outside, and the
sun was shining. Never mind that the forecast calls for single digits tomorrow
night – we are taking it as a sign of spring.
Last week was Lilli and my “winter break”, and I spent it
battling the flu. Yuck.
By Friday I was finally feeling better and eating again.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel our planned getaway to VT with Torrie, Brian,
and Tarzan, both because of my illness and the small leak in our ceiling (which
we worried may become a big leak in our absence). It was such a bummer – we had
been looking forward to that trip for quite a while!
Thank goodness we received a well-timed letter from Lil that
Nothing is better than a good temporary tattoo.
One benefit of staying home is that Lilli and I were able to
go to our last skating lesson of the session. It had been a few weeks since I
skated, but my ice legs came back pretty quickly!
Lilli also had lots of time to operate her “restaurant”
And do a few art projects
To celebrate feeling better, we invited Micah and Sadie to
play today. We took advantage of the balmy weather to build several forts in
the backyard. I worked on one under the picnic table
While Micah built an impressive arch by the hot tub.
So much fun!
Lil and Coach went to the GA Sports Hall of Fame event this
weekend – if you remember, Coach was inducted last year. They got autographs
for us from several really amazing athletes, including Charlie Ward
And gymnast Hope Spivey!
Coach also signed lots of autographs, but we are fortunate
enough to have his already!
We are looking forward to school tomorrow and a “normal”
week. Fingers crossed that this is our last really cold spell!
