The world is so beautiful right now. Everything is so green and fresh and on Saturday, whilst driving around with hubby, I noticed blossoms that I miss from my garden in SA, yesterday-today-tomorrows, bottlebrushes, and pansies.
The weather cannot be beat. I almost called off all school today to spend time outside. As it is we only did two days’ worth of English. 😀
We took Turbo outside to forage a bit, he always stays close to our heels and when we sat in the grass he came and cuddled up close to us. At times like these I want to keep him forever but we do not have suitable accomodations for a duck, and hubby and I are not inclined to build and maintain one. I found a loving home for Turbo on a farm with other ducks and we are working on getting the kids used to the idea.
The kids and I went for a longish bike ride today down to the river and to the gas station for ‘supplies’ (read: candy and chips!). I towed Jenna (and an assortment of soft toys) in one of those little carriages that you can strap on the bike and pull behind you. It was quite a workout! The boys are begging me to cycle to a nearby national monument tomorrow and picnic there, I might do that if hubby can fix my bicycle pedal tonight, it kept coming off on our ride.
I pulled out my guitar today. It tuned up easily and was ready for playing after I emptied out the bits of now-hardened play dough that Jenna had stuffed into the cavity months ago. My nails feel a bit funky, now that I have cut them so short again, and my fingertips are nicely sore. I am happy to be playing again. This time I hope to build up enough strength in my fingers to play past that annoying buzzing sound that accompanied my last effort. 😀
