So, we have been running around in shorts around here. The sunbeds are full, and the daffodils are in full bloom! Buuuuttttt.... yesterday......
IT WAS SNOWING! It is the weirdest thing! I was looking out in the backyard and saw snowflakes coming down all around my gorgeous forsythia in all its yellow glory!
Mary Allison came over for her usual role as Sunday sitter, and Miss Ellie insisted they go outside. Because I have been a painting fool this week (maybe that's the ticket... no blog... lots of work done!), she took Ellie out for me to get a little accomplished.
Earlier, and I mean EARLIER (I was still in the bed!!), Ellie came in and announced she had on her shoes and would be going outside. "Just right here on the porch, mom." How many two year olds call their mama, "mom"!? She had a sock on one hand and a glove on the other. I did not at all even kinda precipitate her winter clothing, but she instinctively must have known that this weather did, indeed, call for hand outerwear!
Interesting choice with the ankle sock with the blue trim on the right hand, but hey... whatever floats her boat!
Mary Allison actually found the cute winter stuff, and even added a hot pink bow to the top of her hat. HEEElarious!
Well, we are presently loading all pics onto Carbonite, an online service, and have also put them all on an external hard drive. I am psycho, so I am not deleting until they are securely in BOTH places!! I did not lose any pics, that I know of, so that is the very, very good news. THe bad news, is that at the calculated rate of 2 gigs per 24 hours, Jessi figures it'll take two months!!!
Surely not! In the meanwhile, she is loading pics for me at work, and I am as surprised as you in the evening when it is commentary time as to which pics she chooses. Kinda like a little scavenger hunt!
