It is often said there is no such thing as bad weather, only the wrong clothes, so with that in mind I sent my little man off into the forest for two and half hours on Friday morning for his Forest Friday program in -19 degrees weather, not factoring in the wind chill. It was cold! But off he went with five other little ones and four adults to enjoy time exploring in the woods. At the closing circle I heard the wonderful stories of their morning adventures, and not once did any one of them mention the cold. It makes me so very happy to know he loves being out there, soaking in the beauty of nature and playing games in any kind of weather.
We woke to a wee bit of snow on Saturday morning, enough to call off our plans and tuck ourselves in at home for the day. I have to admit being a bit bummed about that, but it was nice to be safe at home, doing the things we love to do. We played outside, then came back in to warm up with hot chocolate. There was time in front of the fire reading, crafting and playing. I squeezed in a little bit of knitting, baking and some writing. All in all, being stuck at home was pretty darn good.
Sunday was slow and simple. A quiet morning at home, a family walk in the fresh snow and then a little mama time in the afternoon which included a few errands and then tea with some friends. Another snow storm blew in while we drank tea and my drive home was not fun at all, but I made it, and enjoyed a quiet evening at home, with hot tea and my knitting.
A slow, simple weekend, just the way we like them. How was your weekend?
