Happy First Day of Spring! We awoke to this. Hardly spring-like. It was all gone by 10am, but still… Snow? Really? That Mother Nature is such a kidder, eh?
I’m gearing up for a challenging weekend around here. I stopped being feverish and miserable from my flu a few weeks ago, but I still haven’t shaken the full-blown cold it morphed into. The symptoms ebb and flow in their severity, but they have yet to completely go away, and today I feel particularly congested. My voice is going, too. If I’m not better by Monday, I’ll give in and call the doctor.
But in the meantime, I’ve got a weekend to get through – a weekend throughout much of which Neil will be otherwise occupied. Under the best of circumstances, these solo weekends are perfect opportunities to take my little men visiting their grandparents, to explore the Great Swamp, or to treat ourselves to an afternoon of Frappaccinos (me) and chocolate chip cookies (them). But when I’m feeling less-than-perfect, the temptation to let the kids play Wii all day in their pajamas is a great one, let me tell you!
I’m hoping to strike an acceptable balance between the two worlds. And maybe squeeze in a little sewing, too. We shall see.
My flickr favorites for the week. So many bright, happy colors. Perfect for the first day of spring, wouldn’t you say?
And now I’m off to be a geek for the night. My sweetie and I have a series finale to watch 😀
