Good morning, ladies.
Nice day here in Western Mass. Hopefully the strawberries will ripen this week! All the other garden goodies are looking great!
I discovered my calla lilies popping through yesterday. I planted them back in April, so am so thankful to see the life force starting to shine.
Just heard word that our marriage license is ready to be picked up. Nearly to the no turning back zone. If mother nature cooperates, Saturday morning, bright and early, we'll be launching in a hot air balloon to say our "I Do's", and share our intentions. Excited is an understatement, but the anticipation is bearable, in comparison to the anticipation of this first trimester seeing its way through.
I was stung by a wasp in the middle of the night. That wasn't pleasant. No, not at all...
But I'm enjoying a quiet household this morning, doing some cleaning before getting out to play.
We're a very unstructured clan. Through the years, I wonder if that's a good thing, or not. I love to be homebound, so my kids often are, too. They played some sports when they were younger, but never really gravitated toward them. I am a firm believer in not pushing kids, thinking that's just exhausting for the mom, and the little lads. If they're interested in something, I support it. If they're not, we just hang out until something piques their curiosity. Some times there are LOOOOOOONG bouts of non motivation. Just yesterday, though, my nearly 16 year old son came home really really excited to apply for a job at as an assistant to the instructor at a lego robotics club in a local town. He got right to work on his resume and application, and offered to bike one way every day to help out with the ride situation (a 15 mile bike ride from a boy who fell off his bike 3 years ago, and has not peddled since!). YES!!!! Movement from the unmotivated!
Here's to fast work days, and quiet mornings!!
