Later we left the mess, opened up windows and discovered new snow outside. Once again the fields around our house are covered in this fluffy white blanket of light snow. I am thinking sledding and cross country skiing today... Maybe this afternoon. Followed by hot chocolates with Chantilly cream... Maybe even bake something this morning to indulge in with the hot choco later. The ultimate perfect picture of a great day, right?
The kids play computer games, iPads and iPhones while I make French Toast. This is the new thing in this house now... Technology has entered our front door. At times I wonder how to handle it. Shall we have restrictions on how much time we spend on these tech things? I tend to get irritated after a while as I feel they disappear into this virtual world easily... But I am not much better am I? I can spend hours on end on my computer blogging, surfing, reading and actually learning. It is hard to say no to your children when you are doing the same thing... So I am letting it go this morning. It is a lazy morning. It is okay to walk around in PJ's until noon, to blog, to play computer games, to snuggle up in the sofa under quilts and crochet blankets.
Earlier this week I finally (after a year of procrastinating...) painted my window sills in our living room and it makes a HUGE difference I have to say. It brings in so much more light in the room and looks so fresh and crisp. To celebrate this small step of actually making changes to my home, not just dreamy lists, I went out and bought some lovely tulips and spring flowers. This is where I will sit this afternoon, after the hot Choco, and crochet on one of my half dozen ongoing crochet projects...
I let myself get inspired by flicking through old issues of my all time favorite magazine Lantliv... I love pastels but seldom work with them. I don't know why... It is a challange for me to use pastels in a project. And maybe that is just what I need, a little bit of new fresh colour themes to share with you. Time will tell. I hope you are having a lovely lazy morning just like me. Don't we all just love these relaxed mornings? Thank you for popping into my little world this morning. I wish you a really happy Saturday!
