We've tried eating snow as well - with maple syrup - like they do in The little House on the Prairie. Despite the somewhat quizzical expression on A's face, they licked the bowls!
I haven't quite gotten around to clean out all the cupboards and every nook and cranny in the house. But I do give it a thorough thought now and then, while knitting or scanning the seed catalogues and making grand plans for the garden to come!
But once in a while I do get around to dust of a corner and refresh the seasonal decoration.
S made this little snow cone doll in her kindergarten ... oh, it must be 5 or 6 years ago ... it has such an adorable expression. There's something truly special to dolls made by small children. She got a little help, of course, but it still has got that something, that uniquely childish - vulnerable - quality.
Little S has entered a new phase in the art of playing. He's deeply concentrated, and senses absolutely nothing of whatever's going on around him. Whispering frantically or singing loudly he's entirely absorbed in his own private world. I love to watch him so engaged in meaningful play.
This is my chair. I'm planning on spending more time in it in the nearest future - knitting!
