The pink hyacinths are in bloom - Mark took a picture of them. The white and pink daffodils are getting ready to bloom, if the snow in the forecast this weekend does not knock them out. Esme is going to a play for school today, and she was excited about that. She thought I was mad at her the other morning when I was really just tired and trying hard to keep us on schedule. We've both had to be up and get ready at the same time three days in a row... and I have to leave when or sometimes before she gets on the bus, so Mark has had to get up a few of those mornings and take over that part at the end. The stress was coming through in my voice and the way I brushed her hair, I guess.. made me think hard how these mornings and not getting sleep affects her, too, if she goes through the morning thinking Mom was mad at her. We haven't had a lot of time for other things lately, either.
The greenhouse things are not yet coming up, but they are moist. Esme's school cabbage is doing well. I have put the laundry in and plan to make some rice to bring to work after I nap a bit. Reading 'Rhapsody of Dreams', which is an interesting past-lives, what is the Universe about book. Just finished 'Highland Vow', by Hannah Howell.. another of the Murray family saga. I've had that on my wait list for a few weeks.
I don't know if I'll be able to get the garden cleaned up and ready to till tomorrow on my day off.. we need groceries, too and Grandma probably does, as well. In many other things we are doing well - I got that guillotine off my neck for the month by getting the app at work I needed to get... and Pumpkin's kittens are doing well, the hamster is still friendly and enjoying her treats and her exercise wheel. We got her a hamster ball coming in the mail, and I'm sure Esme will have fun with that if we can master the trick of getting her in and out of it.
