I sent my blog post to Adam, yesterday. He told me he loved reading that. It’s amazing what a little bit of encouragement and praise can do for a person! I do try to remember to tell my husband how much I appreciate him, often.
Our elf on the shelf, “Sparkle”, is hanging out on our stair railing, today.
I baked some brownies, this afternoon. I had some hot cocoa and a brownie ready for the kids, after school. Adam told me not to make any plans for Saturday evening. My birthday is this weekend. I’m not sure what he’s got in mind, but I guess we’re doing something, Saturday evening? Sunday, we’re going over to my sister’s to hang out with them and baby Pj. Next week, Mj has a choir concert. I’ve volunteered to help with their last rehearsal, right before the show, so I have to be there early to help with that. The next day is Adam and my evening out on the General Jackson showboat, over on the river. Next Friday is the kids last day of school, before Christmas vacation. Lot’s coming up!
It’s a rainy, dreary day. This entire week’s been like that. December and February are always the wettest months, for us. We almost always have tornadoes, in December, and flooding, in February. At least it hasn’t been horribly cold. Mostly 50’s-70’s. This weather is making me hungry, though! It also puts me in the mood to cook and bake lots of yummy things.
I don’t have a whole lot to report, today! Just more life and stuff. I enjoy days like this, though. I baked. I cleaned. I wore leggings and a hoodie, and threw my hair up into a ponytail. Actually had a whole conversation with my daughter about the Russia/Ukraine war. It blows my mind how “aware” my little girl even is! I can see that my libertarian, but “I love American people”values are brushing off on my own babies, when they express their opinions. I’ve always wanted my babies to feel safe to form their own views and opinions. I rarely give mine to them. I can see that my own views on certain things have opened Adam’s mind to be able to see another side of certain things. I always enjoy hearing and discussing experiences and opinions with people. As long as it’s done with an understanding that, nobody is going to be shamed for their views, it’s valuable to me. It’s awesome watching my kids forming their own, independent selves.
That’s pretty much all the excitement I’ve got for today!
