Daybook: January 24th



Outside my window: it’s rather gray and bleak looking but purportedly warmer than the last few bitterly cold days we’ve had. Though the trade in for that warmer weather is snow of course, luckily we’re only predicted to get a dusting this time.

MM in his tree house

This weekend : was spent planning craft projects, dreaming of 5th birthday parties, playing a fun game with friends, building blanket forts (or tree houses as MM likes to call them) and eating several meals on paper plates in an effort to avoid the kitchen.

We also: finally managed to track down MM’s humidifier as he’s had this persistant cough for awhile now that we are trying to kick. BB picked it up, too, so we headed to the store and got a second one, opting to get the green frog shaped one that MM was instantly smitten with and giving the penguin to BB. Hopefully the new cuteness will help kick those poor coughs and we can all start sounding healthy again soon.


I am reading: Deep Down True by Juliette Fay which I started last week but put down temporarily so that I could read Anne of the Island quickly before watching the second Anne of Green Gables movie after finding out from my bloggy pal Jean that the movie combines books two and three. So glad I read it right away regardless as it might be my favorite installment so far. I also feel like it ended at a nice place where I can walk away from Prince Edward Island temporarily to read the many, many other books vying for my attention without feeling discontent.

One last picture to share before I go: BB and MM have been really starting to play together lately instead of just near each other. Love this picture of them riding a “boat” together.

    That humidifier couldn’t be any cuter! And my kids love laundry baskets. I often have to kick them out so I can use them!

    Yep, I’m freezing w/ ya although I won’t tell you my temp since I’m sure you’d want to hit me. We’ve definitely acclimated & I’m leaving it @ that.

    I love the kiddos in their “boat”. So darling. Mine have actually spent quite a bit of time lately getting along. Will miracles never cease?!
