Although this wasn't taken today, I've been thinking about what to do with Lukka as the impending winter lays in the near future. This was taken at our library, and although he loves the child-size rockers, can't sit still while I try to provide a puppet show. He doesn't like to read, color, or play with anything longer than 3 minutes. Rainy days always get me because I would love to hunker down, watch a movie, snuggle and read--why doesn't my child want to do these things? It could perhaps be because he's a boy. Maybe he's just too little. Maybe our personalities are just that dissimilar. Whatever it is, I hope I can figure it out--and then find something creative to do with him--soon. In the meantime, rainy days means he might just have a longer naptime with a darkened room and the space heater on.

As these last few weeks of our house being on the market, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Not necessarily a signing over the title light, but a small glimmer of what it will be like to actually be able to breathe and live in our house again. Taking down the sewing machine, getting my hands into projects again that I won't have to trudge upstairs the next day to put away because of another showing. It's good to think about.
Wishing everyone a happy rainy day, warm feet resting on a dog next to the fire, and hot cocoa to boot. At least, that's where I'll be!
