So far this spring, it's been fairly dry. While we could use the rain, admittedly, I've enjoyed the dry days.
Today, however, is rainy and dreary. So, Luke and I are a bit stuck indoors.
Here's the view from our front door -- yep, our lawn needs to be mowed. Marc was planning on mowing this evening, but I'm thinking that may not happen.
Before I had a child, I used to listen to my friends who were mothers complain about winter and about rainy days -- to be stuck inside all day.
CONFESSION: I used to always think to myself, "Quit complaining. Deal with it. So what if the weather is bad. Find something to do."
Now, I completely understand. Luke, like most children, LOVES to be outside. So, when we spend time outside for several weeks in a row (like we have recently), it's hard when we have to be inside for a rainy day.
Now, I'm one of those mothers who sometimes complains (and yes, admittedly, I sometimes forget all of the good things God has given us -- like rain) when we can't get outside.
O.K., I get it!!!!! I'll admit it. I'm saying "I'm sorry" to the world if I ever made any wrong remarks about mothers complaining about the weather.
So, for today, here's what our house has looked like -- just trying to keep Luke entertained creatively.
And, of course, toys started but never finished....
I tried to capture a few pics of Luke, but he wasn't cooperating with me today. You can tell he was bored because he just wanted his blanket. If we were outside, this wouldn't have been an issue.
And, yesterday, Luke was 21 months old! But, GASP, I forgot to take a photo. So, I tried to this morning. But, as you can see, he didn't want to. We'll try again tonight with Marc. Marc can usually get him to smile nicely when in this chair.
On a good note, though...I did spend some time this morning on the phone with my very good friend, Tammy. She lives up north in Manitoba. Had we been outside playing, I probably wouldn't have had that opportunity!
But, she did inform me of one thing -- today, up in Manitoba, it was sunny and close to 70 degrees with clear blue skies. It was actually warmer up there than it was down here. That doesn't happen often.
