It’s hard to believe that in just four months, our backyard and vegetable garden will look very similar to the above picture.
This is the picture that Eric took of the same general area of our backyard tonight while he went out to fill our bird feeder:
Today, we had a more hands on school day (after our math was done) — baking zucchini muffins, playing games, checking out the window at the constant snow fall, and gleefully keeping an eye on the full bird feeder becoming empty by the end of the day (having fed many, many feathered friends today). It was also a day where we all stayed in our pajamas, only changing out of them in the evening to put on new pajamas for bed.
So, while it’s hard to not look at the green picture a little wistfully, today was a really nice day. Without a doubt, I would say it was definitely one of those finer things in life.
