I’m very hesitant to talk about winter being over and spring arriving in Chicago when it is only March – we could very well have an April blizzard – but it definitely seems that we are moving in the right direction. Remember this picture from about 6 weeks ago?
Yeah, all that snow is completely gone. Not even the odd patch in the shade. Actually, Daniel is pretty sad about that. We keep hearing “snow all gone!” He loved to stomp it, so I guess now he’ll have to stick with stomping grass and, when we aren’t looking, grandma’s flowers. He has loved the fact that the 50-70 degree weather this week has prompted us to take him to the park, he is such a fiend for slides that it might help him forget about the lack of stompable snow.
Today is still very spring like, but we’re being treated to the 50 and rainy part of spring. Since hubby and his father and brother are off to a beer and bacon tasting event, I think Daniel and I are just going to sort of hang out today, take it easy: play, read, nap.
Very surprisingly with the nice weather this week, I’ve actually had a fabulous reading week already. Not only did I read a ton, I loved most of it, and at least enjoyed the rest. Here’s what I finished this week:
