In today's performance of Wendy's blog, the part of "I hate winter and I'm gonna complain about it for two months" Wendy will be replaced by "the sun has come out and I feel much better now" Wendy. We hope to make this a permanant change.
Ahhhh....sun. :) I know it's only February and not spring yet, but it's spring in my brain. I have dusted off the winter cobwebs, closed the book on the black hole of January and I'm back in business!
The weather is beautiful outside today. It's still a little chilly, but it's sunny and it feels like spring. I went into Clarissa's room a little while ago to put some of her clothes in there and her room is fantastic when it's sunny! Those big windows are great! We've lived here for four years and I've spent very little time in that room. It's been mostly empty all this time, although we kept the kids Thomas Trains in there for a while. It felt good to go in there today and sit on the floor in the sunshine and sort through her clothes. It's fun to look at the little dresses and the little pajamas and things and think about what it will be like when she's finally here to wear them. Her bed should be here any time now and I'm excited about getting that in there with the bedding on it. It's starting to look more and more like a little girls room in there!
There's not much else to report here. I'm upstairs hiding in my room right now because Shawn has a group of 9 year old cub scouts in the kitchen and they're working on a project. Sometimes it's better just to hide when your house is filled with 9 year old boys. :)
Now that my winter brain fog has lifted I'm hoping to get my camera out this week and start taking some more pictures. I've really been slacking on it lately, I need to come up with some new stuff. Since I prefer to shoot outside and it's been cold and dark for so long, I haven't accomplished much photography in a while. I'm anxious to get out there and start shooting. There are a few fun challenges coming up on the photography website I like, so I think I'm ready to jump back into that!
OK, so I thought I'd come up with something more interesting to say, but I guess that's all I have for now! I think I'll go back into Clarissa's room, lay on the floor in the sun and read a book or something. At least until the 9 year old boys go home and I can come out of hiding. :)
