bright spots

If I could think past these sniffles and bleary eyes I’m sure I would write something inspiring. I’m just sure of it. Instead I’ll share some bright spots in the day.

Our sweet Henry-boy. He has breakfast then sleeps, sleeps, sleeps, then wakes up exactly at noon for lunch, steps outside to pee, then sleeps some more. But he keeps one eye open for the moment I don a hat and coat. Then he hops up and frantically jumps around until we leave for our walk. After that it’s back to sleeping.

On a day like this there is nothing better than siblings happily playing together. Here they are clumping Legos together and pretending they are food for their horses. The greens are grass, the blues are blueberries..

I made “schoolwork” sets for Xi and Echo based on their favorite activities. Sudoku, dot-to-dots, mazes, and math for Xi, and letter/number tracing and coloring for Echo. It is so cute to watch them earnestly work on them.

Henry and I did make it out for that walk. It was sunny and not too cold. And I saw this yellow pole amidst the dreary winter foliage. The epitome of a bright spot. I’ll just keep an eye out for these sweet little bright spots, to guide me out of these sniffles.

I hope you are feeling well.
