It's raining in New England. This is the second or third week of rain. And, it's chilly. Yup. Only about 62 degrees right now. Makes me want to throw on a sweater and bake bread.
I signed my older daughter up for a half-day camp this week about a month ago. It is at a fabulous place called The Enchanted Learning Center run by a mom that used to be a teacher but is now homeschooling her three children. When I got there she met daughter #2 and said - as long as she was potty trained - that she could stay too. It was a day for art and classical music. You bet your bottom dollar I reached into my purse and grabbed some cash before she could change her mind.
I actually got some time alone to do a few things. Not many, but enough to enjoy a cup of coffee and sort through some of the mundane stuff in life - like bills. What I really wanted to do was stop by a local quilt shop to buy thread. It will be closed all week. They're all at some show in Philadelphia. Oh well. Maybe I can find a different fabric shop tomorrow.
The girls painted and got to create with clay. The clay did start off colored - but it was played with so much that it became gray and brown. Lucy made a mommy snail with a bunch of babies. And, just after I snapped this photo, it was changed into a bird's nest for one of her toys.
Simple pleasures are always the best.
