When the weather takes a turn towards ice and snow I have come to understand how these friendly Texans deal with it. They hunker down and wait for what ever is happening outside to turn in some other direction. In this case we have been waiting for a long time- today is snow day #4. There is no plow scraping by or scattering salt and sand. We have been sitting in our house, amongst these four walls that seem to be getting closer together with each passing day.
I have lost my sense of normalcy. It took some deep thinking to realize today is indeed Friday. Friday?
It’s silly how much we haven’t done this week. Getting dressed seems like work.
We have been playing games and having a Lego extravaganza.
All day, building and searching for a certain piece. Hours and hours.
When we lived in Europe I was pleasantly surprised at how many adult Lego collectors there were. You can design your own building and download it to their site and they will create the pieces for you. Isn’t that totally awesome, ja?
I feel like when I was in 8th grade and a visiting friend would look at my room and say you still play with dolls?
What? Huh? Dolls?
It’s nice I can blame the Lego stuff on my kids but between you and me I am very fond of the colorful bricks…and snow days for that matter.
G’day friends…hope you are having a happy day wherever you may be!
