Although the temperatures and humidity last weekend were high, it felt great to be able to pull a sundress from my closet to wear! After picking up Mikey from his Aikido class on Saturday morning, I settled into a spot of sunshine by the open bedroom window for some reading (the cat joined me).
My husband returned home from LA early on Tuesday morning, heading straight to bed for another hour or so because planes really aren’t the best place to get a good nights sleep. I set my alarm to wake before he arrived home, so that I could get some work done early in the day. My eyes are blurred and watery, staring at a computer screen, so I do regret that decision a little now that I’m actually sitting here.
The first half of this week gave us gloomy skies, with splattering rain on the ground and small storms rolling lazily overhead.
While it was raining outside on Tuesday, Mikey and I decided to do some rain crayon-resist watercolours as part of our art exploration . He has been home, pulled out of school, since the end of March and each day since then has been an adventure. Some more detailed writing about our homeschooling will come, I wanted to give ourselves the opportunity to grow into it for a while first. We have a field trip to the Chicago History Museum coming up next week, we are both looking forward to that.
I’ve likely said it before, but I’ll say it again: There are very few things I enjoy more than spending an entire Sunday cooking. It is warm outside, the windows are open wide and a breeze is flowing through the apartment. There’s really so little that is as lovely as this for us homebodies. Even though the apartment needs a good spring cleaning, and though there is a to-do list as long as my forearm waiting for me for next week, I can delight in this single day spent preparing food.
