Our Weekend in a Nutshell


We had a fun relaxing weekend - that is, most of us did. Pea had to hunker down and study for exams she is taking this week. We did ensure she was fed and watered, and between feedings the rest of us headed out to enjoy a bit of fresh air. 

I am once again trying to make getting outside a priority - this comes and goes for me, and here I go again! Someday, maybe, it will just be a wonderful, healthy habit. Until then, I have to make a conscious effort and, having been the example that I am over the years, I also have to drag the kids moaning and groaning. That is until we get to the park or the beach or the woods. They really do love it, and so do I. This past weekend we spent time at the beach and at a local park that surrounds a huge pond. We'd had a bit of mild weather lately, and plenty of rain, so we weren't able to take full advantage of the immense expanse of ice on the pond. Elle and I are looking forward to slipping and sliding our way on there! Perhaps next weekend :)

  2. Oh my, look at that ice! Our ponds never freeze enough to actually walk on them. How cool would that be? I'm completely jealous of your snow by the way!

    1. We only have a short window of time for safe frozen pond fun - the key is to catch it!

  3. Being outside is not a priority for me when it's cold, but days like yesterday where it's in the low 70s, those are golden and I live outside if I can.

    1. I don't like to be cold either - I would pretty much hibernate for the winter if it was humanly possible!
