Today was a lazy day. And by that, I mean, it was lesiurely, and delightful, but we were by no means lazy.
Keith has been having a hard time living here. In the last house, his best friend lived right next door, so he got to go out and play all the time. Here, not so much. He has spent far too many hours looking out the window, wishing for someone to play with. It breaks my heart just a little.
While they played outside, I worked on the yard. I watched them run around, and trip on the croquet hoops, chasing the dog, and even helping with the weeding a little. When we were through with the front, we all moved into the back and did it all over again.
After dinner, the kids were rowdy. I needed to find an activity for them. Keith and I have been talking about cloud shapes for a while now, and so we finally made some. Clouds, that is.
It was easy, and a big hit. I think I may like them more than the kids. I can't wait to make them into a mobile for their room. In the meantime, the clouds are hanging off the dinning room light fixture.
Faye is sleeping, Keith is playing with his friend, and I am getting ready for work.
Magical afternoon? Mission accomplished. It was lacking a bit of koolaid or lemonade, but other than that, I think, for me anyway, this one is going down in the books as sublime.
