So today it is rainy… and beautiful!
Actually, it was supposed to be our PE and Park Day with our homeschool group. It starts after lunch, usually lasts several hours, and then everyone heads home tired and ready for the shower.
But… today it rained, so it was all cancelled.
I only schedule school for mornings on our PE days. And there’s no way, due to a little rain that I’m going to add on an afternoon of unexpected subjects… neither the kids or I are in the mood for that!
So… we took advantage of a rare, free afternoon. I know I could have used the time to catch up on homemaking tasks. But I didn’t.
First I baked. Mmmmm…. A delicious concoction of banana, oats, chocolate chips, almonds… all swirled together with butter, oat flour, and flax… delish and healthy. Practically breakfast-worthy in my book.
Then, here’s what our daughter and I did:
We glammed up the fingernails! And instead of going for my usual middle-aged subtle dusty pink, I went for Rockstar Pink Glitter. Too fun. You can see me coming from a mile away.
Our son, in the meantime, was granted extra computer time and is currently attempting to defeat Germany in Call of Duty.
So, take the time to enjoy the unexpected down-time, ladies. They’re few-and-far-between and I’m learning to use them rather than dismiss them. I can guarantee the kids won’t forget it! The laundry can stay laid out on the bed a little longer. And now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve just put on a pot of coffee, and me and my glittery self are going to go play a round of Wii Golf with the kiddos, to the sweet tune of falling rain and thunderclaps.
