(sorta) snowed in
December 17, 2008 § 2 Comments
The driveway has got a ton of snow (sorry, don’t know how many inches or cms) on top of a nice thick layer of ice. After yesterdays brief visit to pick up the mail, I decided we would just find more activities to do around the house, having slipped a couple of times (not badly) and constantly tightening the grip on bilingual baby as she slipped a bit, too.
Once back home, I came to terms with the fact that I can get one task done a day. Yes, folks. That’s one thing a day. Yesterday, I vacuumed the downstairs. We don’t have a big place but the one-a-day rule still applies. I did try to vacuum the upstairs which has been getting on my nerves (I do have limits on how much dirt accumulates on the carpet) but got as far as lugging the vacuum up the stairs and leaving it there. For some reason, the vacuum doesn’t like to vacuum up there. It seems to do an okay (not great) job down here but up there… dunno. Probably have to replace some part of something.
Anywho. Today I’ll be doing laundry. (exciting post so far, huh?) I’ll start to set up in my head what clothes to bring for myself and the kids. Baby brother is a drool machine, now that he’s teething, so I end up having to change his clothes all the time. Yesterday, the count was 3 shirts.
I’m enjoying the slowing down of Winter. Being in tune with the seasons. With nature. Turning inward and finding time to reflect and make plans for Spring. Going to be early (or trying to) and waking up late (or at least coming downstairs later). I’ve got the slow core playing as the snow keeps on coming.
