Today was rough. Is it because of the seemingly unending snow, the amount of time stuck inside, the drabness of the daily routine such as it is? I don't know, but we did not have a stellar morning to say the least. And I wracked my brain for solutions and even asked for ideas from my lovely supportive homeschool group. Thankfully I now have some ideas and I am encouraged.
Something else that helps ease my mind and help de-stress is to sit and sketch. Marko took the kids out to do some errands this afternoon which gave me time to relax in a quiet house. And on top of that he bought me this lovely little rose bush which feels like a breath of fresh air in the middle of this unending winter weather. Spring will come!
