It’s a gray, gloomy day here in Maine, so I started thinking about the things that make me smile through the gray:
- I love the twins in footy pajamas. I dug them out the other night because it’s gotten COLD and they don’t sleep under their blankets very well. They just look so warm and snug.
- I love watching the kids color. We have a ton of coloring books and the kids just pull them out, grab our outrageously large bucket of crayons and go to town.
- I love seeing the kids with books. Meg just finished reading Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Drew has stacks of books beside his bed and the girls are constantly sitting down with books. We got out our Halloween books the other day and I’ve just been reading them over and over to them (my favorite is Angelina’s Halloween, but the kids like Ten Trick or Treaters best).
- Coffee. What’s not to love about coffee? Granted, a coffee delivery service as AndreAnna is often pining for would be great, but I’ll take it hot and fresh from the pot each day.
- Fall weather. Despite today’s rain and bone chilling cold, I love fall. I love the changing colors around our house. Doug put up dried cornstalks from our garden on the posts on either side of front steps this weekend and now all we need are pots of mums and some pumpkins to finish the look.
- Warmer clothes. Socks, sweaters, slippers all make me very happy.
So, indulge me. What is making you smile today?
