strolling lunch in town show off snow structures lift staying warm apres ski spying on 'dog blue' spying on geese
These are a few glimpses of our trip to my mom's two week-ends ago. We usually get to have a 'date night' when we visit after Little Smith has gone to sleep. This time he was working through a serious sleep issue (which I hesitate to type so as not to jinx it... but seems resolved with the help of stickers!), so instead we enjoyed staying cozy by the fire and also managed a couple family lunches in town.
As I mentioned here, it was a sunny and glorious few days, and by the time we headed back to Boston on Sunday evening most of the snow had melted. I thought it was a perfect last winter hurrah... but there's yet another storm predicted to start tonight. James (king of snow) is thrilled of course, which is starting to grate on my nerves just a teeny tiny bit. It's not so unusual to have snow in March, but like most sane people, I'm pushing along spring.
Half way through last week, I decided it was time to put away my heavy coats and head out in just a bulky sweater. I've been completely freezing, so I think the denial has to end and the big coats need to come back out. It's okay, those warmer days will be here eventually. I'll be ready with my bulky sweater when they decide to come.
