Winding down, winding up
It's been a luxurious several days of no schoolwork, seeing relatives, hanging around with my kids, thinking about things other than schoolwork...nice. Baking. Made our own version of the Odwalla "strawberry c monster" with youngest, then we concocted our own blueberry-banana-blackcurrant smoothie thing. Fun!
Today, I got around to digging up the tax records and puzzling out what I need to do about estimated payments before the 31st, and also did some charitable contributions that I've been meaning to get around to. It feels rawther productive.
And in the morning, we start the intensive rehearsals before opening of The Tempest. It's at a point where it looks like a show, and I'm floored by how lovely it is. This play has more songs written into it than any other Shakespeare piece, and we're doing it with lots and lots of live singing and instruments and oooo it's great. Come see it! You'll be glad you did.
The weather is plain weird. We got 2 feet of snow; now it's melted away. Go figure. One week ago, I could barely walk through the blizzard; now it feels like spring. The plants and birds are getting confused. I know we're going to hammered with a lot more snow before this winter thing lets go of us, so I'm hesitant to even feel comfortable in the non-freezingness.
Sigh. New year's coming up; least favorite holiday; must find something just right to do with youngest. Good night, Merry Christmas, Happy Solstice and Welcome Yule.
