Today we had respite from the rain. We've been battered by storms almost daily since I posted last. So this is Winter on the Oregon coast. I don't mind, these storms have a beauty of their own. But when we woke this morning and the sun was out, it was like coming up for air. We ran to the beach for two hours. I think our lungs are full and ready for what next may come.
There's been a lot of indoor play. Lot's of trying to be patient with each other. Lot's of Legos. Lot's of time in the tepee I made them for Christmas. Lot's of crafts. Beans on paper was last night's desperate attempt at occupying James and Finn while I cooked dinner. I thought Finn's came out wonderfully. He's blossoming into quite the little artist.
I've been knitting. I finished a little gift for a soon-to-be birthday girl I know. And I started a sweater for myself. I hope it turns out, as I'm winging it a bit.
So, there you go. We've been living very ordinary days, struggling very ordinary struggles. And I don't mind them, they have a beauty of their own.
