Yesterday my Sister and her daughter came over and we took the kids into the ravine for a nice long walk in hopes to tucker them out. It didn’t even phase them. Sure, they were all tired and wanted to be carried the rest of the way home, but once we got inside their energy level sky rocketed! Where do kids get all their energy from? It amazes me.
It was a nice walk and I was able to snap a few pictures. Since the ravine is the closest thing I have to the country right now (besides my In-Law’s) I consider it a treat to go down there. It is really pretty there in the spring with the streams flowing and buds about to bloom. Fall is amazing too. All the paths are covered in leaves and the colors are warm and inviting. Summer can be terrible with all the mosquitoes wanting to eat you whole, so I hardly go at that time. Winter is nice too, but the snow covers most of the paths so it limits where one can trek.
So, I sit here sipping my nice hot cup of coffee, hugged by one of my favorite shirts, enjoying the smell of Mullberry floating throughout my house wondering what to do today. It’s a beautiful overcast day and it’s making me think of rain.
I think we’ll spend the day indoors and I’ll crank some music and watch the kids dance like bobble heads.
