We ate lunch while the sun streamed in from the slider door in the kitchen. It was so nice to throw back the curtains and have the sun met us instead of the grey ick that's been around all too long this winter. Icie played nicely at the table while I steamed the kitchen floors and unloaded the dishwasher. The sun was seeping into us, making us content to just be.
Time out was not used. Nap time was not the horrible battle that it sometimes can be. I finished a project I had been working on since Saturday (if you check back on Thursday, you'll see it). Then after nap, after only one small, I repeat very small terrible two moment in regards to shoe choice, we did it.
We went for a walk and played outside for forty minutes as the sun still shined. We stayed out dangerously close to dinner time, and had it not been for a lingering cold we would have stayed out past dinner time.
Even though today is icky and grey again, we saw it yesterday. The light at the end of the long dark tunnel that has been this winter is flickering into sight. We cannot wait.
