The kids and Ken are fantastic. They've all pitched in so that I can rest and get better. I usually drive them back to school after they walk home at lunch but today they all marched off willingly so that I wouldn't have to. Ten minutes later however, they were back.
Jay got sucked into a muddy spot (I'm sure it jumped out at him and attacked him.) Oh, the power of mud! Brenna had to go in to rescue him (as you can see by the pink laced shoes in the pic). We'll laugh about it someday soon but today Jay was bawling, Brenna was fit to be tied and Will, well he just look relieved to be a spectator for this one!
The snow is melting in earnest and the ditches are full and running. Ken is looking forward to floating some boats down them with the kids this evening. I'll try to get pics! Living here has Ken getting in touch with his childhood growing up in Cook's Creek, MB. He's loving doing some things with our kids that he did growing up in the country. I'm very thankful for our time here.
I've slept most of the day but had a chance to try a little craft I've been wanting to. Started with a few old records I had picked up at the Sally Ann (where else).
I'm not sure yet what I'll use them for (planters or chip and dip bowls) and if I'll paint them or not, but what an easy way to reuse old albums! I'd like to try making more but this time outside on a barbeque as I'm not crazy about the fumes it gives off.
'nuff said. I feel the need to (sniff, sniff) go drink some hot lemon and honey (honk, honk). If I was in Winnipeg right now, our dear neighbour, Mr. Miner, would be at my door with a hot toddy for me to drink to knock this cold on it's ass! Oh, I do miss Mr. Miner!
Thank you for the fun of spring and puddles and the comfort of memories and hot toddys. I love you.
'til next time,
