Well that’s what I get for bragging! Last week I wrote about our uncharacteristically warm winter, and this week we get hit with a coooold snap. The poor bulb flowers are more confused than ever, and my poor baby is finally experiencing the icy cold of metal playgrounds on little fingers. That’s okay, we still have a whole lot of fun.
So oi! I’m embracing winter and cooking up comforts like lentil loaf and chickpea cutlets. Miso soup with lots of seaweed (Waits loves wakame – win!), movie nights and flanel fever. Homemade valentine crafts and lots and lots of candy cane tea.
What about you my dears? How are you making the most out of winter?
Gift recipients from this month’s MMM continue to trickle in, sharing the joy they’ve felt at finding an unexpected present. I LOVE THIS MISSION! If you haven’t had a look yet, it’s not too late to participate!
And now for my favorite part of Friday: Le Love List!
1. Planning Waits’ spring/summer wardrobe, oh man what a geek. But somehow his clothes have gotten so dull, all navy blues and (ack!) tan. This summer I’m all about juicy bright baby, in primary red and yellow, hot orange and lime green. Fun!
2. The editing process. Late at night, with tea and chocolate, reading my rough draft and feeling proud of what I’ve accomplished.
3. Waits is now signing. This is AMAZING, I’m *beaming* with motherlove and so so thrilled to begin true communication. He asks for ‘milk’ (um, sort of constantly!) and we’re pretty sure ‘more’. We’re working on ‘eat’ and ‘toilet’ and ‘hurt’. He is so friggin’ smart you guys!!!
Okay, now you tell me! What do you love this week?
My darlings, this happy little post will stay at the top of the page all weekend, so stop by any time to leave your Love List, ask a question, or offer some feedback! Or if you’re new, please introduce yourself and say ‘Oi!’! This is your community, so get involved!
