The Play-Doh is out and the kids are playing. We have had breakfast; today it was cereal with milk. It is very cold out and the sun is shining with a very blue sky.
For the moment it is relatively quiet. Stewart is milling around, hoping to capture a small tidbit of food. During the day, he manages to get quite a few. Unfortunately for him, the little ones are no longer eating.
We had a hard time getting out but we thought that it would be a good idea to go to the Botanic Garden or to the park. Since we needed to get a few things at the grocery store, we went to our favorite, Sunset Foods, and then went to the park near our house and the local outdoor pool.
They had a great time and we even made a new friend, unfortunately he fell down and the party broke up because he was crying and it was time to pick up the pizza. We went to pick up the pizza and came home for lunch.
After lunch, the kids were wild. They got into a funny game of being silly and chasing each other around. We tried to keep them calm since the younger of the two was going down for a nap, but there was no chance of that.
I then took the older to pre-school and came home for my hour and fifteen minutes. I drained the last of the three rain barrels into the pond and then I turned the others over, coiled up some hoses and put them in the garage.
I then went to pick up our young charge from pre-school. It is still beautiful out, a starkly blue sky, no clouds, sun, and a just under sixty degrees Fahrenheit.
One beautiful day it is.
