Ohio Winter Greenery
Our household is on the mend! Week 9 was recovery week, and still full of lots of cuddles, hugs and kisses. As we wait out the last few days of winter, we are still spending quite a bit of our time indoors. But I'm perfectly OK with it. I love winter for what it is, the perfect time to get indoor projects done and a good excuse for an evening movie and early bedtimes. This week was a bit busier than the rest, but I still managed to get a few of those sweet moments of our little one. One week a month, I work an extra day at my nursing job and what a difference it makes. My house is always a bit less organized, a bit more chaotic and we all just learn to happily roll along. When mommy works a bit more, that always calls for at least one pizza evening! And of course an ice cream bed time snack.
When we did manage to venture outside this week, I had to capture what little green we saw on our afternoon hike with daddy. I also loved what I saw in the remaining wood pile outside of our back door. For us wood means heat (and a huge mess) in the winter and a lot of work in the summer. I have a love/hate relationship for the wood burner chugging along in our basement. It saves us a significant expense every winter as we completely rely on it to heat our cabin. It can be a huge pain/frustration/and time waster, but I am thankful every year when my husband works all summer diligently building up a big supply and as our electric bill remains relatively low each winter. Life is all about looking at the bright side - and looking at beautiful sunrises on your drive to work!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!
