We had a good day. Everyone is feeling reasonably well and it was Ascension! We had planned to have a huge pool playdate with friends from church and friends from our homeschooling group, but it was cold and gray and completely inappropriate swimming weather (despite the fact that the last three days have been scorchers!). Instead, we had a very quiet day with a local family that we love very much... there was lots of good conversation, knitting, and eating!
In the late afternoon I had a brainwave and dashed out to the library to pick up the first season of Road to Avonlea. My sisters and I loved this show when we were children and I knew that our little ones would enjoy it. I was right! It was hard to not greedily gobble up all of the episodes at once.
Sugar Plum's birthday bouquet was in a sad state this morning, so I plucked out the good flowers and arranged most of them in a mason jar on the dining room table with the last little bit of our Pascha candle. Two shorter stems made their way into a little bud vase on my bedside table along with the latest issue of Soul Gardening and a chocolate bar. It's going to be a good night!
