Finally thawed and on the move again, we traveled for my youngest son's birthday with his grandparents this weekend. He wandered off in the midst of opening presents, leaving me to be unjustly accused of telling everyone that he loved Tsum Tsums only so I could play with them myself. However, he did return to claim them - and hoard them.
I am so glad that Nashville is above freezing again. The boys were getting a little stir crazy. The youngest began sorting his counting rings by color.
While my oldest built a snowman, then baked it a snowman birthday cake (both were named "Bob"). It was 99 in snowman years.
(He doesn't even like gumdrops.)
I planned some of my projects while we were stuck inside, as well, and I got started on them as I found a free moment during the weekend. I have a cutting board in progress that I designed with one of my favorite Zentangles, Cadent by Maria Thomas. A CZT has done a fantastic array of examples of Cadent here: https://goo.gl/x6mVGF
I also added some sea life to my embroidery, including this tiny crab made with the "lazy daisy" stitch.
Having a "fun and contentment" to-do list, plus a few projects going at a time, makes it easier to find a fulfilling way to utilize those unexpected free moments. It beats decluttering by a mile.
You are a mighty snow leopard! Let's destroy this Monday.
