These days we are waiting. Waiting to hear about some potentially very good things, but waiting nonetheless, with spring and summer plans on hold for now.
We are also:
Enjoying lots of time outdoors this spring, aka the time before too many stinkbugs and mosquitoes.
Appreciating anew the beauty of our neighborhood.
Taking a welcome break from packing.
Taking a welcome break from keeping the house in show condition. Because these children are very special and extremely talented in keeping the house in a more, um, creative condition. The scene pictured below happened in the two minutes it took me to put leftovers on their plates for dinner. (Not pictured: the paper towels woven into the backs of the dining room chairs.)
I enjoy the placement of the cat scratching post right next to the couch, for the ultimate in cat relaxation and grooming.
