I am not a fan of random picture posts. I feel like there in no point in sharing a post if I can't put together something coherent. But I do have an excuse. The little babe (who is not that little any more - 4 1/2 years), now only naps about twice a week. And so that means I have absolutely no time to sit in front of a computer. As it should be. I'm not truly complaining about it, but in a way I am, which I don't like. I get 15 minutes while I eat breakfast to check email and then maybe a 10 minute check in the afternoon. Other than that, whenever I sit down to do any "work" the little babe seems to amp up the "Mom, pay attention to me" factor. I then feel guilty and slam the computer shut. For really, I don't have actual work to do on the computer. So it seems I am down to a once a week post on Tuesdays. Here are random shots of what I was doing this week other than sitting in front of a screen.
Interactive play that involves costumes of all sorts. (And pet hair of all sorts too.)
Trying to capture the most handsome Romanian dog lying calmly on the deck while the snow falls down upon him. He hates having his picture taken.
Giving it one last shot (so I thought!) to ski with the little babe. The temp was just around freezing and the snow was too sticky, so I had to give up and carry them out. This did not affect the little babe's enjoyment (or position on the sled).
Whacking up the last longneck squash. It lasted almost until Spring - there was one quarter sized spot that I needed to cut out.
Enjoying the luxury of a snowy mid-morning in the woods, not seeing another soul.
I am not at work somewhere in the "outside world" because I chose to spend my days with the little babe. I have a greater appreciation for nature because of her. I learn something new every day while I learn about the world with her. So if I only have time to share one post this week, I'll use this to say that I am truly thankful to have a little babe who demands my attention and forces me to live life instead of documenting it.
What are you thankful for today?
