We’ve hit a bit of a (really, really long) rainy patch over here in south florida. If we’re lucky, we get a spot of 10 minute sun here or there…. or SOMETIMES it will stop raining for two hours, but other than that “the clouds have been crying.” It hasn’t been awful though. With our day trip down to Miami, we were at least able to spend a few needed hours outside… and with a few extra cookies, movies, yoga moves, and a new really amazing craft book, we’ve been set. And by “it hasn’t been awful”, I mean “it’s been pretty awesome.”
Can I tell you that the thing I most looked forward to when I became pregnant was my future kid growing up and having craft time? Is that weird? As a late 20’s adult, I have no problem saying that arts and crafts is pretty much the most amazing thing ever. Other than her packages I set up for while we were away, and the occasional painting day, I hadn’t done much of the ‘art project’ thing with M. But after one quick scroll through of
her (my) our new craft book, I was all about doing anything and everything we could. Craft time: it’s happening. I’m realizing, that the future is now, my kid and I are going to be able to live in art.
But as I finish this post…. the sun is shining for the first time in almost two weeks so I’m off to plan a beach day with my long lost back-in-town friend, Morgan (who played doggie to my kitty child) this rainy week. Crossing my fingers the sun stays, but if not: more crafts.
edit: 3 minutes later: it’s not. back to crafts (&probably pizza today too).
