For Epiphany we took down the tree. Aurora had done a fantastic job making our little world bright. She was a piece of the natural world integrated into our home. She reminded us of the green of spring. She smelled great. Henry loved her for a while.
She is now residing near the bird feeders. The Redpolls think she is fantastic.
We are settling into the routine of the new year nicely. I have a week off. I have a few plans for some homey chores. Mostly, I want to start the schooling off on the right foot. We have a few weeks before Zoey's science and writing classes start back up. Today we are back to piano lessons.
Vivi is an artist in every medium she comes across.
Yesterday it was hummus, cucumbers, tomatoes and a tortilla.
We made a new batch of suet dough. It was missing about two ounces of lard, thanks to Finn. What a sneak. Is nothing safe in this house?
Yesterday had the most diffuse and lovely sunset through a snow squall.
It feels good to be moving forward again.
