Walking and knitting.
It was nice at around 0*C/32*F and if I had some skis for me and the children, it would have been the perfect conditions for a day out on the cross-country ski hike. Powder snow with a good crust and relatively warm weather.
Although I am still enjoying some of the beauty that winter does so well, I can't help wishing that these wispy wool batting type clouds, were over green grass and 20*C/70*F weather.
I have been pretty housebound for a long time. Last summer the giant wasp nest meant that being outside with the children wasn't relaxing as I had to make sure they stayed well back from the sunflowers. Wasps don't seek people out to attack and only sting when they think they are under attack, but with kids whose reactions are unknown, you can't be too careful. The cold, lack of car seats for children who aren't mine and a night shift Mr. can pretty darn limiting. I am not ready to go back to work, but there are days where I really want to do something and there aren't a whole lot of choices for me in the winter. So snow, go away! I want to have a few more choices!

then out the kitchen window and
started climbing the walls too.
