I cannot get over it - this weather is marvy. I am LOVING it. I know that winter isn't over and it's probably going to snow a few more times, but for now? The sunshine is a welcome sight! I can't really get overly excited until April - that's when I can hang flowers from my porch and plant my flowerbeds. I can't wait to see blossoms on the trees, drive with the windows down and BBQ for dinner. I even turned on the AC in my car. Radical. Oooh! It's just around the corner, BC fans!
Cody left yesterday to go to Wisonsin for the week. He and the other Captains flew out there with the Fire Chief to approve plans for a new fire engine. It's primarily a business trip, but since he works with his friends I know he's going to have a great time. That means 4 full days with just me and the boys. I hope they don't get sick of me! Everything that we usually have planned during the week has been canceled - no Kindermusik this week, no family lunch, what's a girl to do? Luckily the weather has been FABULOUS which means many hours outside. Cache has also been playing with little Drew (Mari's son) which has been a huge help to me. Drew came over yesterday to pick up Cache and they drove off on their little scooters...my heart broke a little bit as he rode off. It's the first time he's really had a friend to go play with, you know? He gave me a hug and said, "Bye Mom, love you!" and off he went as I stood there alone in the driveway. Aw.
Today we are going to purchase sidewalk chalk. "Brilliant!" I can hear you say, the boys are going to love it. I have also been promising to make cookies with Cache for the past 5 days...I better own up to that this afternoon. Oooh, I see some clouds moving in, I better go enjoy the sun while it's out!
