Today Everdeen and I spent the day resting and trying to recover from our colds. Poor baby :( I think every surface has been cleaned, every piece of linen washed, and all toys disinfected. I opened the windows to let in the mild December air...now everything smells fresh and a little like Spring.
I got Everdeen all wrapped in the Moby Wrap and we headed out for a nice afternoon walk in the 60 degree weather to clear our noses and to look for pine cones for the Christmas tree. We found lots and placed them among the branches of our tree. We don't have too many ornaments yet so it was nice to fill in some of the spaces with a little nature.
We spent the rest of the afternoon lounging around under the tree on the hot sun soaked carpet. I treasure my weekends now more than ever before and can't wait until the snow starts falling and we can really snuggle under the colorful twinkle lights.
Come on December, bring on the hot chocolate, warm sweaters, and that magical Christmasy feeling.
